Had him for E&M and Digital Electronics. If you're taking Digital Electronics with him you won't regret it. Very straightforward and interesting class and super easy to do really well in. For E&M his midterms are a joke which make you think that you're screwed for the final because he taught the last part in like one class but he actually taught us exactly what we needed to know for the final and so Sank is basically clutch. Just talk to him about butter.

Teaches a lot less than other teachers so naturally, studying for the final you think it's going to be hard because of how little he taught, but he actually teaches exactly what's on the final. His midterms aren't necessarily the easiest due to his method of teaching, but he's pretty lenient in terms of grading and again, puts questions that are exactly the same as what you'd see on a final. However, there is a fair amount of self teaching and doing textbook practice problems...

For physics NYC. Compared to other teachers, doesn't teach as much but that's okay because his notes covered just enough material for the final exam anyways, and he is VERY lenient when marking. However, he rushed the topics near the end because too much time was spent on the beginning topics, so the last few topics were a bit hard to understand as he went by too quickly. His classes arent boring though as he tries to keep the class engaged. his examples are too simple so do lots of practice

Not a bad teacher by any means, but his notes are mediocre at best. Take him if you are an independent studier or have a strength in physics because his way of teaching is not ideal for someone that needs guidance. Also, this is not necessarily a bad thing, but he expects you to work on problems outside of class, so if you do not put extra work outside lecture notes, assignments, labs and class material, you will struggle with this teacher.

He may be knowledgeable, but his way of teaching is different than the textbook, so it may be confusing if you want to learn on your own. He is not a bad teacher, it just depends on how you are willing to learn, since his assignment are hard. If you don't understand something, go to his office! He'll help you for sure! the most important, you must pay attention in class!!!

His class is absolutly not related to the textbook. You have to study by yourself. His in-class examples are 10x easier than what he gives you as assignments and problems. His labs are easy at first, it gets harder eventually. In conclusion, he is a funny teacher, but the kind of teacher than expects you use his theory to nail practice problems without his help. Good for independent students, bad for those who need a lot of guidance.

most unclear and vague teacher i'v ever had. his in class examples consist of a picture that he projects on a screen and then makes up all the values regarding the problem so when you go back to ur notes you're completely lost. his tests are irrelevant and even if you understad the material are impossible to get 100% on unless you memorized the assignments which are also hard and not related to class. He cant explain concepts and doesn't answer a question, simply responds saying "your the expert

he is not as bad as everyone comments on him. Yes, his assignments are hard but the final is not, if you do them on your own and understand them. The midterms are quite easy though. Powerpoints are useless, soyou are responsible for your own notes. He is a very bad marker. He takes off marks for everything in the assignment. If he is wrong and he admits it, but never changes the mark saying: "It is sad to loose marks like this". Anyways, he is better than Hernandez who doesnt teach at all

He is a HORRIBLE teacher! Our E&M class, for the final, had to use notes from other classes. We all felt under prepared for the final. He doesn't teach anything in class. He gives no examples, he gives assignments that have NOTHING to do with the things he taught us in class. For labs, we never knew how to do them because he never taught us the material. He almost didn't finish the material for the final and we were always 2-3 weeks behind. Overall, please try to avoid him if you want to pass.
