At first I hated that I got stuck with him for EandM because of the reviews he used to have about not being good, but he is not bad at all! his notes are AMAZING and complete. His midterms are well reflective of his notes and assignments and the exam was not hard at all. I skipped a lot of his lectures after the first midterm and studied for the final only with his notes. + he does prelabs with the class, shortens lab reports and grades really easily.

Don't believe a review before last year. He buffed his entire course, and it is well known now that his notes are godly. Everyone from our class had people from other classes asking us to send them his notes. He gives you the entire course in one zip file right off the bat. So listen here; perreault is a not so great lecturer, and his classes are boring. But he does not give a crap if you skip and help everyone equally. He grades incredibly easily.Exam is ez. Quizs EZ.Funny dude would recommend

JP is a legend. Take him if you want an easy course. Best teacher for mechanics at marianopolis, you will not regret it. During class he does problems from the book, its kinda like listening to a story. I don't think I ever went through one class without laughing. Such a funny person. JP explains so well, he can summarize a whole chapter in one class. He's a superhero.

I had him for mechanics NYA and all I have to say is GET ANYONE ELSE IF POSSIBLE. Although his midterm exams are easy, he barely scratched the surface of the material in this course, and did no prepare us AT ALL for the final exam. You have to rely on the textbook or on other teachers' help. He does not have any set notes (writes down anything that pops into his head at that moment) and is very disorganized.

Stay away if you can! Took him for NYA and I basically taught myself the whole curriculum. He teaches directly from the book, word for word. He puts the textbook up on the screen and only does questions from the textbook. While he corrects labs and tests within a day, he is very disorganized in class. Would NOT recommend!

Decent teacher, but presents the course as if we know everything already. If you are good in physics, take him! If not, he will just assume you are and do problems without explaining any theory. He gets carried away as he teaches and most of the time you will end up watching him talk to himself as he solves problems. He is always in his office. ALWAYS. One on one is awkward and he makes you feel like you are bothering him, but always very helpful!

I often ended up going to other teachers.Hard and UNFAIR marker(66% class average for tests). I lost marks for questions because of a calculation error in a previous question. His response ?"Too bad, I'm a cruel teacher" His catch phrase is "This is not on the course outline but lets look at it"

I am not rating him based on how well or bad I did in his class, I am rating him on how well he did his job as a teacher. As a teacher, he is unclear and unable to answer questions properly. All he does was read from the textbook to recopy it on the board. His tests are okay, the final's okay, but he was not a good teacher at all. Try to avoid if you can.
