TECH 001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Gives fairly easy take home tests but doesn't want to help much. He is grouchy and seems irritated if you come to his office with questions. I don't suggest taking him for a technical writing or projects course, or having him as a porject supervisor. He is very critical and hard to please. Also strict on attendence when class is only 15 minutes.

TECH 4821 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He is a good teacher although sometimes he doesn't always expalin the material clearly. However, he gives take home tests which are usually fairly easy and his powerpoints are easy to understand. He is much better than the previous instructor of this course, Dr. Javan. I got an A in his course.

TECH1010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Professor Newman is probably the best teacher I've ever had in my whole life. He's really cool until you slack off on your classwork and don't do your best. He's just one of the guys to me. I would recommend this professor to anyone pursuing an engineering degree.

TECH001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Very hard class, but once you get it you get it. If you ask for help, he will help you. I ended up getting a tutor and ended up with an A in the class. A lot of studying, homework, and effort.

Mr. Newman should retire as soon as possible. I don't know who left these last comments about him, it was probably him. He is the most unhelpful and downright inappropriate teacher I've ever had! He won't help you understand any of the labs, he doesn't take the material seriously and yet tests you very seriously, and he just has a bad attitude.

He is a very fun and interesting teacher. The class is a little difficult, but Mr. Newman tries to explain it in any ways necessary for you to understand the material. He has a quirky personality and that is what makes the class fun!
