PHY2049 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Nice guy but won't give a straight answer. Very frustrating. Doesn't work the problems out on paper. Tries to explain things 99% of the time by saying equations & waving his hands around. Expects you to know physics already. His reviews are worth going to just so you know what's on the exam. Don't bother with the regular lecture. GO TO TUTORIALS!

PHY2048-2049 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Prosper's classes are difficult, but by no means impossible, and especially not unfair. Make sure to read the book and practice examples thoroughly, and you'll be ok. He gives extra credit and even let us redo our midterm 3x due to low averages. Once you figure out his style, you can seriously get 100s on tests.

PHY2048 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B+

Lectures are pointless, but fun, and have plenty of demonstrations. Recitations are great (take them with Stevens), and study groups really really help.

This class has put way too much stress on me. If you take it, GO TO TUTORIALS. You might miss PRS points from lectures but if you skip anything, skip those. The tutorials are the only place you semi-learn anything. The difficult part is that they give you one example per concept and expect you to be able to apply it to anything so practice much!

PHY2048 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This man was useless! He gives 4 multiple choice questions on scantron for a test. I got a zero out of 4 on my first test and went to class everyday. I studied harder than ever to get a mediocre grade. Avoid him at all costs!

i loved physics before taking his class. his lectures are pointless and he assumes you know way too much. if i hadnt taken ap physics in highschool i would be totally lost. only 2 major grades make and a few mini quizzes make up your grade and the quizzes are only 4 questions.

Lectures are very boring and dry; however, the class really is not that difficult.. He gives plenty of options for extra credit both in class and exam curves. Not a recommended professor for learning the most but still fairly easy.

You think he's a great teacher until you take your first exam. Then you realize going to class every day was a total waste of time and that you should have just gone to tutorials and done your homework. He does NO EXAMPLES related to the test questions in class and actually focuses on the theory of physics and exams cover its application.
