He is very helpful, but goes fast while giving notes. His tests are out of 30 points, so you can only miss 3 points before falling into the B range. Luckily, he curves the tests, but you still have to really know what you're doing for them.

egr202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

try not to take him. with him dynamics is very hard. his tests were really tough and required an insane amount of studying. between his still not fully lost middle eastern accent and his speed it can be hard to follow along. homework is due every day and although he is willing to help both in and out of class his very busy schedule can that difficult for both you and him. whether or not he curves is simply a matter of luck. Be very careful If you have to take him

CEE411 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

THE(!) WORST TEACHER EVER, annoying & pompous lecturing tone, ignorant & avoids questions. Introduces himself as "Professor" to my parents, while doesn't even hold a PhD. Got his PE license only at the age of 51. Doesn't do research & improve. Why they're letting him teach engineering classes & still keeping him at UD, at all?! He's sweet talker.

Nice guy, but too busy to focus on teaching well. Examples are too easy, while tests are much more difficult.
