course comments :Nothing in this course is useful. Either you learned it before, or you'll learn it in much more detail later. This once-over doesn't help at all.
class :Fall 2002 section 001
grade received :N/A
class rating :1 - Bad
class comments :I gave up and only came to class for tests and homework the last 2/3 of the way.
instructor :Hankins
instructor rating :1 - Bad
instructor comments :The thing he'll cover most is his son's soccer games. He'd trip up over algebra and do a derivation for the whole class period. He probably knows his stuff, but don't count on him imparting it to you.

course :NE 301
course rating :2 - Average
course comments :You have to take it and make a C- or better. I don't remember much else from the material except the six-factor formula.
class :Fall 2004 section 001
grade received :C
class rating :2 - Average
class comments :The lecture is basically all derivations that you don't have to do over again. The book is worthless other than listing homework problems. The labs are thankfully 25% of your grade. It honestly varies; some people really understood it, and some like me really didn't. Oh, and expect all of your lab reports to be due within a 2-week period during and after thanksgiving. My suggestion: MAKE FRIENDS and study with SMART PEOPLE. It's your only hope.
instructor :Hankins
instructor rating :2 - Average
instructor comments :I have to give him at least a 2 because he gave me my C. My test average including my final was poor, and since I never saw a single lab report grade, I can only assume he boosted my final grade with that. He's a nice guy, but his teaching methods leave something to be desired. He's probably tech-savvy enough to read this too, so I'm glad I passed.

course comments :NE301 labs were not very helpful. Lots of counting experiments... the neutron counting experiment was probably the best.
class :Fall 2004 section 202
grade received :N/A
class rating :1 - Bad
class comments :Split up into groups and start counting for the next 3 hours. And don't mess up, or you'll be there for another 3 hours to redo it.
instructor :Hankins

instructor comments :Greg was a strict grader, but easy to get along with during the labs.
