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.

He is not a bad professor but he is not the best professor iever had.He is boring,a lot of the times people arent paying attention in class. He talks alot and write very little.His gives quizzes not exams. They are hard if yu dont pay attention in class. a lot of the time he explains what is going to be on the quiz and he gives practice test.Simila

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.

Boring. Only recommended if you want an easy A. Other than that, I don't really recommend him.

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.

If you need to pass the course take this professor. If you need to learn the course take another professor.

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.

This guy has a PHD in hypnosis. While he is teaching everybody sleeps. Nobody understand what he is talking about. His tests are repeating.
