Chad's really funny and is a pretty normal guy (which seems to be pretty abnormal for physics professors). Homework was pretty tricky (get a solutions manual if you can), but tests were okay. He does iClicker questions, but those are the only examples he really does in class. I'd take him again.

Chad is the man. I had an failing test average, did well on the final, and got a B. Take him if at all possible. He is the best physics teacher at this school. He is also drop dead gorgeous.

Terrific professor. Everything you get is from his head, including problems on the test, which is a big advantage. He curves too!

Sosolik is a good teacher, he does his best with a class of 200 students. He is funny and even though the material can be difficult, the tests are always curved a lot. We never use the text book, so dont buy it.

Dr. Chad is the best teacher ever. If you study the example questions, you will do well on the tests, but even if you don't, he will curve them. He curved every test to an 80 average, which meant a 20 point curve for one test. He teaches well, and wants you to pass. Go to class and use your clicker cause the extra points will add up.

Chad is a great teacher, he really tries to help you learn everything that is covered in class. Tests are straightforward, and if the class does bad he will curve it. Everyone in the class loves him, and I would def recomind him!

PHYS 221 H Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

It was the only physics class that would fit my schedule. It was freaking hard. No matter how hard I tried I just couldn't get a good grade. If you have questions make sure you talk to students because he often ask him, he will only confuse you more. Hard Class!

Good professor. He knows his stuff. Will try to do crazy experiments in his class. Extrememly helpful after class. I went in twice and he helped me for over an hour before tests. If you study, you will do well. Curved at the end of the class. Quizzes everyday (simple). If you pay attention, you will get a good grade. I would recommend.

Dr. Sosolik is a good teacher, very fair grader, but you have to go to class, do the homework, take the quizzes, etc! Don't blow them off. Also, sit up front so you can read his writing and hear him.

Dr. Sosolik is a great teacher. Definately goes above and beyond in helping students that need it. Very fair grader. He definately prepares you for what will be on tests. Do the homework and reading notes, remember homework counts as much as an online quiz so do it right!
