So he hasn't taught anything in class. We only do labs, which does not really help at all. For people who do not know anything about physics, do NOT take his class. He himself has no idea what he is talking about. He is pretty cranky and biased to students, so you want to stay on his good side.

Doesn't really teach, you have to learn everything yourself or come in to ask for help if you want to get an A. Extremely nice though

I learn absolutely anything in Honors Physics but at least he is pretty easy. Very unclear and he confuses himself! Hardly ever gives hw though.

He tries his best, but just doesn't get it right. His teaching style is not really teaching... his class is more of an "indepent" thing.
