Very rigorous. He didn't mark anything, so I don't know why he is being knocked for that. Needs to understand that not everyone is a physics genius. Tutorials were very good, and he helped explain things I didn't quite get in class. Our Priof was a little disorganized, so having him explain things in tutorial was nice.

WOW he is tough but he will make sure you know what you need to for Physics. Definitely more accustomed to teaching upper year classes

Obviously not used to teaching lower level courses. Overall, if you don't want to learn , you will not like him. He does care, and if you ask will gladly help. I you are looking for a plugin the formulae course, you will be in trouble. Also, very hot guy.

A bit full of himself and a hard marker.

Very condescending and childish, can not believe he considers himself an adult.

Much clearer than the first semester prof. However, he spent too much time on theory and not enough time on problems with numbers. Pretty hot guy, but unfortunately, he seems to know it. Labs were not always connected with the lectures.

I heard so many terrifying things about Brandon which made me nervous about the class. However, once you get to know him he is one of the most helpful professors you will ever encounter. Very clear with his explanations, and makes the classes interesting. Be warned though he is a tough marker.

Worst experience of my life, I'd rather shoot myself in the face than take an other class from him
