class comments :The class was also pretty bad. Unless you're into materials engineering, DON'T TAKE IT!
instructor :Fahmy
instructor rating :0 - Horrible
instructor comments :I actually had HARE instead of Fahmy. My opinion on Hare is, He sucks! He has no clu how to teach, he circles arround the front desk in our classroom talking very fast and giving terrible notes. I had to watch Fahmy's lecture inline to learn the stuff.

course :MAT 201
course rating :2 - Average
course comments :Semi-interesting material, but it was a big jump as a freshman to tackle this harder material (in comparison to first level chem/physics). Lots of theory as well as lots of formulas.
class :Spring 2003 section 001
grade received :B
class rating :2 - Average
class comments :Lectures typically last the whole time, sometimes letting out 5-10 minutes early. 2-3 classes were cancelled. Quizzes are typically unannounced after a few weeks and usually on Fridays. No attendance was taken but you didn't want to miss a lecture or quiz. Very few demos or examples... kinda dry.
instructor :Hare
instructor rating :3 - Good
instructor comments :He could've been much worse with this material, but he spoke clearly and taught it pretty well. Only thing keeping him from a 4 was that he was usually sleep enducing.

course rating :0 - Horrible
course comments :one of the worse classes ive taken here..boring, easy, no useful material unless you care about the properties of steel. an technical elective for che, with the alternative being ece331.. so i suppose this was the better choice considering what i heard about ece331.. still didnt like it, though. take 5 hours before the tests and study and you'll do fine. ppl tend to do kinda worse than they should in this class b/c they class off b/c it is too boring.
class :Fall 2003 section 001

class comments :this guy didnt make the class any more enjoyable.. most 'pop' quizes are take homes or a group effort or open notes.
instructor :Hare
instructor rating :0 - Horrible
instructor comments :i had a dream about this guy in which he turned into a chicken after sexually harassing a girl in class.. it was strange.. though ive never thought he would do either things in real life.

course rating :0 - Horrible
course comments :What a waste of time for a chemical engineer...this class should be for CE's only. Most of the cool stuff (LEDs and polymers) gets only a day's worth of lecture and the boring shit like metals and steel takes half the semester. Take another class if this is an elective. A basic snorefest.
class :Fall 2003 section 002
grade received :C
class rating :0 - Horrible
class comments :If nothing else, this class is a good time to catch up on some must needed sleep. Johnson made it the most boring 75 minutes of my Tuesdays/Thursdays. Book is worth getting, you'll need it unless you are a court stenographer and you can follow Johnson's shitty notes.
instructor :Johnson
instructor rating :0 - Horrible
instructor comments :On my list of teachers, Johnson is 3rd from the bottom. He has voice immodulation: HE HAS NO CONTROL OVER THE VOLUME OF HIS VOICE! Also, his notes he gives in class are riddiculous and hard to follow. He apparently has ADD and just writes and talks like "stream of consciousness." Trust the book, it's more of a help.
