He's a good man. He tries to make a very complex subject accessible to his students and tries to entertain with his corny jokes. Tests are easy. 3 exams + non-cumulative final. He gives practice exams and the tests are just like them. I don't know why some people rate him so bad. He wants his students to learn and he curves to help their grades.

Great teacher, very funny ^^ The material is tough but it's physics anyway, so you obviously have to study if you wanna get a good grade, and the lectures are fun.

Really nice guy. His class lectures can get kind of confusing, but if you see him for office hours he will straighten things out for you. Expect to do a lot of work. You will have to do some writing for the labs. Overall he's not great, but not bad.

Overall, Waldman is pretty good and very laid back. Sometimes he's confusing and other times he's clear, but the material is tough any way you slice it. His exams are straightforward and easy if you do the practice tests and take the time to study. Lab reports are writing intensive, but considering it's 25% of your grade, it's worth the effort.

everybody says this guy is easy and he's not. labs are writing intensive and practice tests aren't the tests, just general areas for study.

Professor Waldman is a good professor. He has his own way of teaching but his tests are very simple, just do the practice test and you'll be fine.

He was alright. He basically took the examples from the class and put them on the test. Only a few numbers we changed. I wouldn't take his class again for anything.
