PHY53 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Evans is great. He is retired so the only reason he still teaches during the summer is because he truly cares about the subject and his students. People say that he is condescending, but I disagree. He's a man that finds life humorous and will laugh at anything, not YOU. He pays attention to the effort you put in so work hard and u will do well

phy54 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Professor Evans, despite his intellectual arrogance, is one of the best teachers I've ever had. He's the first teacher at Duke that I've found that truly grades you based on demonstrated effort, not simply to fulfill some bell curve or quota for grade distribution.Highly recommend him, for his grading philosophy alone .

PHY 54 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Evans might be the smartest prof I've ever had. The material is tough and his class is very difficult, but he says flat out that he doesn't give any grades below a B unless you really suck it up. Because he's so smart, he's also very condescending, but it's probably tough not to be when everyone's dumber than you.
