Sweet old man but hard to understand. Need to work a lot on your own to learn the material. He's a pretty easy marker but you don't learn much so be careful for the final. Labs are easy and we only did 2. I would not recommend him. He knows his stuff but just can't teach it. Really boring class.

A very nice and smart man, though he can't communicate with his student at all. Also he doesn't teach rather he reviews chapters which you'd to already read on your own. All he does is to give you a basic explanation on the chapter and some basic problems. your class tests would be easy; your labs will be marked 90+ though you will not be prepared well for the final exam. I don't know how I 'll be marked but I just know I learned a very few in this course.

Although Silvio Zenone isn't the clearest teacher, his tests aren't too hard and his assignements are pretty easy. Just read the book and you should be fine for the final. If i could have avoided him as a teacher i would have, but only because I now feel unprepared for E&M. Overall, not the worst teacher.

Really sweet and obviously understands the subject really well but he can't communicate it to the students at all and he doesn't understand your questions. Much better off with another teacher.

I don't think much of this teacher. He can't teach..I mean, he's a smart guy, he just can't teach. I ended with with a 90..so I'm not complaining much, but that 90 was not earned, I should've gotten a low 70...just show up for lab, show up for tests, do the final and ur guarenteed like a 90.

He's a good teacher, even if he's kinda old. Yeah, his explanations aren't what's gonna make you know everything, but just read your material before class and u'll perfectly understand everything he's talking about! He knows all his stuff. But Don't rely only on the lecture!!! Very helpful if you ask him any question. Easy with marks (just wants to see you work).

Very nice, will give you 10/10 on all the labs, even if you hand them in really late. He curves the marks and will rarely fail someone.

If you want to be confused, bored and hate physics take him. If not, then find a way to switch teachers. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!

Nice guy, 100% on labs always, if you do pre tests and old test you can scam a 95 in his class, not good at explaining but work hard and you will do well.

This teacher will duplicate your grade no matter what! He barely looks at the lab reports and gives 10/10 on all, give ze same lab to another teacher: 6.5/10!

With this teacher, you are forced to learn a lot of things on your own. But he is very easy, giving good grades to most. The lab reports are very simple.

He's just so hard to understnad that it's really difficult to pay attention. He mumbles and doesn't really teach anything--all we do is go over the homework.
