The seems smart on his own, but is a horrible teacher. He is very unclear about what is being taught in class, and it is often hard to understand what he is saying due to his accent. He grades absurdly hard, counting off 10 points on a test for a negative sign and often penalizing you twice for …more things you missed. less

This guy is a joke. Hard tests that you are not prepared for, he schedules test prep stuff outside of class that is useless. Taught strait out of book, his 'notes' were the book. Totally useless helping with homework, told us to goto the grader. DO NOT TAKE THIS JOKER. HE WILL MAKE YOU CRY!!!!

He is really hard and his class notes are hard to understand. But even so, I learned more from this class than any other at this crumby university. This class is worth taking, for sure.

So far, having Dr. Shotorban for Fluids I has been a blast. I've learned problem solving methods and techniques that I didn't already have. I enjoy his class and it seems that I will have a decent grade in the class at the end of the semester. Time will tell if that's true but I have a pretty …more good feeling about it. Take him for Fluids I less

Go to class, take notes, and you will have no surprises! Amazing at explaining things. He seems rude at first but it is just his way, he is willing to answer questions. But if he feels like it is hindering the class he will ask you to see him after class. Wanna learn? Take him!

He's pretty condescending and a smartelec but the first day in class he tells you that a 55 is a C, 70 is B, and 85 is an A, that definitely comes in handy. Also, he gives 4 quizzes, 3 were open book and a midterm and final.. both of which are open book and open "in class notes" not a hard class to …more pass by any means less

Incredibly knowledgeable in many engineering subjects. One on one tries to be helpful and encouraging. He seems to have a bit of arrogance, but I'm fairly certain it's not intentional. 2 Tests, four quizzes, and graded homework. His in class examples are somewhat cosmic, but if you understand them …more the rest of the class is made easier. Tough grader. less

He is incredibly arrogant. He would get off topic in his lectures. Other than that, his lectures seemed good. He did not really help you for tests-would do 2-3 examples lecture beforehand. He graded incredibly harshly-got the last problem on the midterm completely correct, but he took off 10 …more pts bc I used a simplified version of an equation. less
