class comments :There's a project which should be relatively demanding, so it won't be entirely slack. But the rest of the course is pretty easy. He gives us mostly worked out homework problems
instructor :Bahram
instructor rating :4 - Awesome
instructor comments :Ok, so I don't have Rabiei, we've got Boran Borhan or something. He kicks so much ass. He's probably the first teacher who is genuinely interested in seeing us do well and seeing us understand the material.

course comments :The material covered in this course was not complicated but a there is a lot of it. It is easy to get behind. This was a required course and should not be taken with any other difficult courses... it involves a lot of time.
class :Spring 2001 section 001
grade received :D-

class comments :The material in this class was not presented well. I read the book, studied constantly, never skipped a class, and still ended up with the D-. Beware the C wall.
instructor :Rabiei
instructor rating :1 - Bad
instructor comments :First off, she doesn't speak clear english. She is friendly outside of class but does very little to make the material understandable. She expects everything to be right the first time. The tests were too difficult.. the average scores were below 40.

course comments :This class was terrible. If you don't have to take this class then don't. The book is terrible and gives horrible example problems. Maybee this class has a point but I don't know what it was.

grade received :A-
class rating :1 - Bad
class comments :For as bad as the teacher and the class was I don't really have anything else to compare it with. All the 314 teachers seem to suck. Trying to do the homework problems was hitting your head against the walls. At the beginning of this class she did really easy example problems but after we bombed the first test she started doing harder example problems to try and help us out. All in all this class blows.
instructor :
instructor rating :2 - Average
instructor comments :From listening to what other people had to say about 314 teachs she seemed right around the other teachers. I never went to see her out of class but she did try and help us out giving us a curve on one test and doing some quizes to boost our grade for the other. And I think she curved the final grade a lot cause I deffinatley didn't get an A- by myself. Dosen't speak very clearly and I don't think ever trusted any answer she gave to any students questions. If you can stay away from her.

If you're forced to take a class with him...then let me say this...i'm sorry

instructor comments :This guy is fucking terrible. He didn't teach and from the few times he was trying to teach us about the pythagorean theorem or some bullshit it was so painful. He'd waddle in and throw copies from the book on the overhead and would tell us how simple everything was. That's it. He got homework back quickly, but it's debatable as to whether he actually graded them...

course comments :If you didn't learn statics you're in trouble. Material isn't too hard otherwise. Class moves fast at times, so keep up with the hw. Book was VERY expensive.
class :Fall 2005 section 003
grade received :A
class rating :2 - Average
class comments :Instead of taking up hw, she would give a list of problems and give one as a quiz when it was due. Grade was only 10% hw quizzes, the rest was 2 tests and the final. She gave a big curve too, ~15pts. All the slides were online so you could print them out if you wanted. Tests were mostly straighforward and similar to hw problems.
instructor :Peters
instructor rating :3 - Good
instructor comments :She's not the best at teaching, and sometimes the stuff in the lecture seemed kind of crazy and not necessary. however she was friendly and I would recommend her for 314
