instructor comments :Terrible professor, just gives concepts, no examples and his tests are half concepts(read multiple choice) and half problems. Could be a jerk sometime. Gave pop quizzes every now and then, but they arent all that hard if you do your reading. Only real saving grace is that he curved like crazy, I had a C or D and made an A-. so...

instructor :Sichainula
instructor rating :1 - Bad
instructor comments :I would give a horrible rating, but he curves a whole lot, so if you want an easy A or B I suppose take him. He will not answer questions in class nor post homework solutions, and you literally need a translator to sift thru his broken English both in class and on his web page. He never posts any answers to anything. He says if you have the concept down that answers are unimportant.... but when learning a problem how does someone know he has the concepts if he can't cross-reference it with th

class comments :Attendance policy was stated but I didn't know what it's purpose was. Jag is a horrible teacher. Unorganized at times and just piss-poor at answering even what seemed to be basic questions.
instructor :Maher
instructor rating :0 - Horrible
instructor comments :This class was taught by J. K(really long name here). By far the worst teach I have had at State. Spoke horrible english and couldn't answer questions worth a damn. Quizzes and Exams were horrible and riddled with mistakes. However they were multiple choice with three choices; however, and I paraphrase here, "If I make mistake in choices, write in your own answer. If it correct you get full credit" This class just made me want to say GRRRRRRRRRR!!!!

course rating :1 - Bad
course comments :The material covered in this class was extremely boring. Basically a combination between chemistry and solid mechanics. Overall the material was not that difficult.
class :Spring 2003 section 002
grade received :B
class rating :1 - Bad
class comments :I can't recall taking any notes in this class when I actually did go. Fahmy's teaching style coupled with boring material had practically half the class asleep everytime. I made a B by putting forth zero effort.
instructor :Fahmy
instructor rating :1 - Bad
instructor comments :Very poor teaching style. You cannot hear him talk at all, even when he used the mic. Tests were very similar to previous tests though. Grading was a bit harsh. Every point off an exam was a point off your final grade.

class :Spring 2003 section 002
grade received :B-
class rating :3 - Good
class comments :The material was really interesting, and the teacher really knew his stuff, but his monotone, quiet voice would get really boring sometimes. It's a hard class to sit through after a while. You also have to pay attention every second, or you really will miss something.
instructor :Fahmy
instructor rating :2 - Average
instructor comments :He's nice. He didn't curve at all, but on the final exam he gave enough extra credit to boost me from a C+ to a B-. I don't like his grading breakdown though. The only grades you have for the semester are 4 tests (there is no cumulative exam). Each of these tests is worth 25 points, so basically each point you lose is a point off your final grade. I did badly on just one test, hence my C+ that had to be boosted with extra credit.
