EP394 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Nice guy, very approachable when you go to his office. A bit of a snooze-fest in class but he explains his stuff well. I give him a thumbs up!

PS103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Do NOT take this professor!! He claims to curve but in the end only curved grades by 1 point. expect a C or a D in his class since he can't teach and expects students to be at an advanced calculus level

PS103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Good professor for PS 103! You can tell he likes his subject, and likes to teach it.. but unfortunately most of us hate it. He taught well, and was very nice. Also curves a lot since like 90% of the class would flunk without it.

PS 103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Wow...just wow. I took him for summer A and all I can say is I am shocked. I did absolutely TERRIBLE and still got a B. Just the fact that he realizes the most important part of college physics is getting through it is a godsend. He curved EVERYTHING and was extremely helpful. Hard to follow sometimes cause he moves fast, but overall great!

PS103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I feel sorry for him. He is such a nice guy but it seems like he is teaching at a level below where he should be. He curves a lot so that helps. Other then that he is very straight forward. If you are a math whiz it will come naturally to you. If not, he gives the tutor lab hours. Nice to meet a professor that knows not everyone gets it.

EP393 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Nice guy. Sounds like a smart guy who has been stuck teaching stuff he doesn't particularly care for (I think he's a thermodynamics guy). Tests are very fair, no curveballs. Straightfoward, down-to-earth. A little boring, so it sucks that he takes roll. Ultra helpful.

PS104 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Many times he wonders off into how to derive an equation through fancy integrals and such. He is very helpful though. If you need extra help you can go in and see him or ask in class. He tries to get people in class to participate but (in my class at least) nobody does. Just study the book before tests, quizes are easy. Expect a B in the class

PS 150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

horrible teacher! he teaches straight out of the book and isn't very clear. he's so monotone and doesn't try hard enough to get class participation. his tests are straightforward but require a bit of studying. i would not recommend him, he shows no enthusiasm. it's horrible. i dreaded going to his class.

Teaches directly from the book - DIRECTLY. If you own the Spaceflight book, don't even take notes. Tests are fair. Likable guy, good natured, teaches at a good level. If you're in EP and you don't like this subject, pick up a "Change of Major" form NOW.

PS 150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He spends more time showing us how much he knows rather than actually teaching us anything. Plus hes so picky about tests, even tho he does drop the lowest. He doesnt require attendence but i have a feeling hes grading me harder because i dont come a lot.

i've had several ps 103 and 104 profs and thought he was one of the better ones.. doesnt beat salmons on clarity and easiness.. but he WAS pretty generous about rounding up my grade at the end

Do your homework, show up to class, study your notes and you'll pass. He is very generous when grading tests and drops your lowest.

PS 103 (Summer) Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I thought this teacher was pretty easy. Hard to understand at times, but is much better than other physics teachers at Riddle. A lot better than Shiv Aggerwall. Do your homework and pay attention, you'll do fine.

CANNOT SPEAK ENGLISH!!! Says "pounds" as "ponds." If you think you have a chance of getting a half way decent grade in his class you are mistaken. Class average 60%. Enough said.

Very nice proffesor. Easy to get along with, and explains things fairly. You can go to his office to discuss many topics and he will help you. Although his classes are a little boring, but he makes an effort to teach you. Very good classes overall!

I have never had a prof who is more boring than sozen. If you're looking for a nap it's a great class to take.

Way too smart to be teaching lower level classes. Spends too much time showing you how to solve for every variable instead of showing applicable examples. If you go to ask for help he just makes you feel like a dunce.

This man has an amazing plethra of knowledge. He should NOT be teaching lower level classes, such as PS103 where students seemingly need to be hand fed, but stick to upper level courses where he can be utilized and appreciated.
