Had him for mechanics. His notes aren't very good, but they do cover everything if you listen in class. He's an amazing person, and actually cares for your understanding. Midterms were very easy and he's a pretty easy grader. You will probably be under the impression that you're not learning anything with him, but he prepared us very well for the final and he had given us almost all the problems as previous examples.

I had Rocco for waves and I don't regret it. You have to read the textbook and self-teach a lot but he covers the important topics and problems in class. Tests are extremely fair (even easy) and the final was a breeze! I would definitely recommend him if you don't mind reading the textbook. Also, he's a fair marker for labs and assignments!

Super nice guy. Easy grader, especialy in labs. He takes care of the hard problems in class and gives you the steps to follow, but doesn't go into detail because he expects students to use their head, which is a good thing. Recommended.

I did not enjoy Rocco's class at all. I find he did not explain well and I barely had any notes in his class. Also, he nevers answers your questions properly.. He derives so many formulas for you that you never know which ones to know because once again, he doesnt specify... Whatever, I ended up not showing up anymore. I would avoid him if you could.

Overall a pretty nice guy, but EXTREMELY boring. Classes are brutal, but he's generous when it comes to the labs. His powerpoints are long (some over 100 slides) copied from the textbook, and he doesn't summarize anything in his own words. He gives a lot of practice but is unclear of a ton of concepts. Wouldn't recommend taking.

His midterms were quite easy for NYA, and especially easy for NYB, however, in comparison, the final was brutal. His teaching was cloudy and made concepts hard to grasp, which made me attend another NYB class, with a teacher who explained things more clearly. Make sure to ace the midterms, which are usually based on the homework and handouts.
