EEEE 281 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: Rather not say
"Tough Grader" "Tests are tough" "Participation matters"

The lab section of the class is easy and the homework. His exams are long and doesn't provide enough time for them as the whole class doesn't finish on time. So far the class average for the exams are in the low 50s, with no curve. This guy is brutal and doesn't care. Do whatever you can to not take his class.

"Tests are tough" "Tough Grader" "Get ready to read"

Dr. Brown just LOOKS nice. He's funny in class but he's actually really serious. DO NOT YAWN IN HIS CLASS! Big on interaction in class. Homework every week, 2 or 3 exams. The exams are a bit confusing but if you know the fundamentals, you should work through it just fine. Basically, you can pass, but you have to really work for it.

Circuits1 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He was a very energetic professor. You will NOT fall asleep in his class (which was a first for me). His tests are very hard but if you THOROUGHLY understand the homeworks and do them by yourself you'll do well. He's always down to help and he's a really awesome person. Super understanding of nonacademic stuff that gets in the way. He's my fave

"Tough Grader"

All he does is read the textbook. That's it. That's his tests as well. So you can do very well by just reading the textbook. However, he does not care about students. Very rarely answers questiins, less office hours than are mandated. Won't take homework late, even for a valid reason. If you fail the lab you fail the class. General bad.

Dr. Brown is a high energy lecturer who keeps you awake. 2 homework assignments a week, and 3 tests per quarter. He is a bit of a tough grader but a good guy. Don't yawn in his class.

EE482 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Alright alright alright. Dr. Brown is the way to go for Circuits II at 8 am. Explains concepts really clearly and goes over examples. Tried weekly mini-exams for my class. Watch out for curveballs but just be sure to read read read the material for academic edification and provide him feedback with questions, comments, observations.

cir2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Hands down one of the best EE professors in the department. He is relatively challenging on exams because he throws a lot of curveballs that you don't expect. Work hard, do homework questions and seriously study with your friend if you wanna do well in his class. He provides ample amount of examples so read them often

Cir1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Had him for Circuits I. He is an excellent professor who provides lots of example. Very entertaining guy and he tends to throw curveballs on exams. Just read, read and read and keep reading so you fully understand the material! Recommend him

CIRI381 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

AWESOME professor! Explains material clearly. Fair grader on tests, which are fair game. Show up to class, do all the homework and you shouldn't do too badly (unless the homework graders are extremely strict). Recommend for anybody taking Circuits. Think of Dave Chapelle with a Ph.D. and one crooked eye.

CIRC1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

While he's pretty thorough in his lectures he's extremely unhelpful with any questions and throws curveball tests that are much harder than any homework or lesson problems. It's as if he repeats things he read online to the class and doesn't understand them himself. I don't recommend this professor - he's misleading and a harsh grader.

Circuits 1 & 2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He explains things directly out of the book but is clear and concise. He's willing to have fun but still moves through the material. He's a great guy who cares about his students and takes an active interest in them. His tests consist of 3 questions, he grades fairly though and homework is graded.
