instructor comments :Loved this prof. he made a lot of jokes, some of them were dumb, but he had the class rolling sometimes. Really interesting professor, did plenty of examples, tons of help sessions. The homework he assigns can be pretty hard but it only counts 10% and it makes the tests seem like a breeze.

class :Spring 2002 section 002
grade received :A+
class rating :3 - Good
class comments :3 tests + final. 25% each. Tests were 4-5 questions, pretty easily finished in 50 minutes. Final 8 questions, 2 taken almost directly from each test, 2 on stuff after 3rd test. Gives problem sets with answers that are useful for studying for test, none graded.
instructor :Alexander
instructor rating :3 - Good
instructor comments :Very slow and deliberate, but generally a good teacher. As long as you go to class and don't sleep through it, you should do fine on his tests. He talks a lot like Bob Ross, and he once spent 10 minutes explaining how to solve 2 equations with 2 unknowns ( :roll: ) - kinda makes you want to skip class, but just deal with it.

instructor comments :Ok, so he'll interject jokes every once in a while... But in reality most of his teaching is just one long drawn out joke. He tries to teach the stuff, but I think he's only teaching equations.

instructor comments :i think ST Alexander was awesome. I really learned a lot even though I did not apply myself as much as I should. I used his notes and studied before the test and made good grades. He allowed cheat sheets which i put examples from class on that were then on the test

course comments :I found the material to be a bit difficult, especially considering I had no background in circuits. I had to work very hard to understand things, but I really think I walked away from this class learning a lot.

grade received :B-
class rating :2 - Average
class comments :I can honestly say I earned a B-. I worked my tail off to make that. Basically I did bad on the first two tests and then really started to understand things, which allowed me to turn in a good grade on the final. Since this is a class for non-ECE majors, not having a background in circuits could cause some difficulty.
instructor :Guncavdi
instructor rating :2 - Average
instructor comments :Brickley did not teach this course. It was a grad student name Secin Guncavdi. Not many people liked him, but he did give us plenty of extra credit and curves because he wanted people to do well. He didn't speak english very well and sometimes talked too softly for a big classroom, but overall he was okay.

She learned every student's name (in a class of about 150), graded tests/ quizzes quickly and returned them within 2 classes at most, and was good at explaining the material to boot.

instructor comments :This man was way too into himself. All he did was constantly write on the board and not really explain anything, we had like 7 tests + a final, so basically every week you either had a lot of hw or a test to study for, and the tests would always have some problem on there that looked nothing like any examples or hw you did. And I really don't need to hear about all the patents he has, whoopdie damn doo, just teach the class
