Engr1202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

If there were 9 things in my life I could cut out completely taking this class would be one of them. I took this as a summer class. He doesn't slow to explain anything. I made many zeros unrightfully that I've had to fight to be changed the whole course. He never answers important emails or any to that extent. Don't expect grades on time.

ENGR 1202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B-

Dr. Raquet is not the most helpful teacher. He does not stay up to date with grades on moodle. He waited to the last week to put the majority of grades up so I had no idea what my average was until finals. I guarantee he won't respond to emails. You'll learn a lot when it comes to CAD. Dr. Raquet is a nice guy and descent teacher

If you need clarification or help outside of class, forget it. Dr. Raquet will not answer your emails, office phone calls, or anything else. No office hours posted in syllabus, no email posted in syllabus, absolutely no contact information whatsoever. If you find this info, do not expect a response if you try to contact him.

I took this class over the summer.Very challenging, he is a great teacher and willing to answer any question you have,there are three tests worth twenty percent each,final is thirty percent, quizzes and hw are remaining ten percent. Hw is challeing but he goes over every problem until you have a thorough understanding. Said exactly what was on test

Excellent teacher. Answers any questions you may have and does so in great detail. The material is pretty difficult but NOT impossible. If you do all the homework he assigns (and there is a lot), you should be fine. He is a very fair grader too. Most importantly, do NOT fall behind! The material builds on itself as the course progresses. Good Luck!

I will be quite honest. The course is not at all easy, he's getting blamed by lazy students. He's a great professor, if you're not the type of engineering student that would ACTUALLY study and instead think you'll pass by just studying the night before then i do not recommend you take him. Plane and simple, you want to be an engineer? TAKE HIM!!

Alot of people didn't like him but I didn't find him that bad. He knows Statics really well and the class isn't that hard. In the end it's just a bunch of forces pulling in different directions and you have to use forces and moments to solve for unknowns. Nothing is moving so all the forces and moments = 0. Easy class, not sure why people struggle

Do NOT take him! Very smart professor but could't dumb it down enough to actually teach. He never taught but spent whole class reviewing homework assigned the night before that he never taught you how to do in the first place. Tests were ridiculous, too.

The lecture is pointless, do the homework assignment, go to the lab. The class is easy, professor is horrible with posting assignments

This summer course took my whole time studying it! It isn't an easy course so keep a hard work! Quizzes are extremely easy. The 3 tests aren't harder than the HW problems. STUDY the HW and similar problems and you should be able to at least pass the course. Final was much harder than the tests and too long. Extra credits are provided in the tests.

Plastic was really easy but DO NOT underestimate it or u may easily lose the A. 4 tests and project, 20% each and no final. Tests are MC & short answers & that is why it is easy. The bad thing was that u need to refer to the syllabus to know what to study for each test among a bunch of badly organized files which made studying for exams confusing.

ENGR1202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

The course is easy! Waaay easier than ENGR 1201! HW are 60% of the course, so never think of missing a single one. Don't try to email him, because he won't respond at all! If you need anything, see him in his office! Though, he is a very knowledgeable professor.

ENGR1202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Never returned a single email. Wasn't really a good teacher (more of a show-er). Somewhat helpful in labs, but spends most of the time talking about stuff that has nothing to do with what's going on.

Rather dry and boring to listen to. Assignments are pretty fair, however details are very important and not paying attention to them will hurt your grade. Straightforward and relatively easy, nothing exceptional.

Wanted students to learn, just gets a little disorganized getting his points across. Tests, homework, quizzes were easy, gives entirely too short of time on quizzes though. Final was also ramped up compared to the tests/homework/quizzes.

Had him for 1202 and statics. somewhat disorganized. For 1202 had to constantly check moodle for new assignments that would pop up without warning (learned this the hard way by missing a group of assignments). Doesn't return emails. normally pretty easy to find (often in the comp. lab on 3rd floor). Not the best, but would take from him again.

Rarely responds to e-mail. Absolutely no extra credit. No curve, no sympathy. Arrogant. Expect difficult tests and homework problems. Quizzes are extremely easy compared to tests and homework but count very little. Class could have been made much clearer given better examples and explanation.

If you are to take him for MEGR1202 he is extremely knowledgeable about the software ProE that you must use during the class. His lectures are optional, but he takes a quiz and ONLY accepts homework at the BEGINNING of class. If you miss the beginning of class he is very strict about no late work. be extremely lazy and make a B, easy class.

megr3090 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This is ADVANCED CAD/CAM. Super easy class w/ a VERY SMALL amount of work to be done compared to 1202. I took it in the summer, 3 weeks of advanced features on ProE and some stuff on GeoMagic (CAM system), a week of lectures on stuff similar to 2180, and the last week on a short-interesting final project and a short quiz.That is an easy A. Take it!
