He is a grumpy older guy and very inconsistent. He'll give contradictory information and then expect you to know what to do on tests. He changed definitions on us halfway through the semester all the time. The virtual labs in this class are miserable. Just get through the class and rely on the TAs.

I was terrified of McPherson from these ratings, but I actually liked him a lot. REALLY a nice guy. Willing to adjust things & will repeat info as many times as asked. It's a lot of material (so yes fairly tough) but the structure builds on itself well. TIP: read the chapters ahead until you understand it & lectures will make a ton more sense.

He is always giving contradictory information on his slides and is so unclear about which one we're actually supposed to use on the test. Is really unhelpful with labs, so make sure you go to the TAs. Not very nice and a really boring, confusing class.

The TA's save you in this class. Go to their office hours for help on labs, quiz reviews, and go to their test reviews! If you do this, you can get a good grade.

Great professor. He's intimidating at first, but if you go in to his office hours, he's incredibly helpful. I cannot stress this enough--meet with him one on one and you'll understand the material so much better (and you'll get an A).
