Dean of Engineering. He told us we basically have to ignore other classes to pass. The material is easy but the tests he leaves us very unprepared. He actually leaves.....like takes the week before the test off from work. The tests are very very very hard!

The homework was easy, but the tests were INSANE. Even other MAE teachers said the test questions did not make since. Only 3 people passed the 1st test (and the highest grade was a C). This teacher was hardly ever there and he would take off work the entire week of the test.No amount of studying …more will get you through his tests. DO NOT TAKE! less

He is discredit to the university. It is impossible to pass. The tests do not reflect anything we have seen in that class. The tests are so 10 times harder than any homework or review problems. The class average on the first test was below a 40% (he told us the average). Avoid if possible. It …more is a shame he is the Dean of Engineering. less

Unless your only taking 1 class avoid taking him. He hardly ever has time outside of class to help students. He had one office hour a week which was during most students class times. He also teaches concepts that the other statics teachers do not teach so when you try to get help with tutoring that …more can't even help you. Don't take :( less

Whatever you do DO NOT TAKE HIS CLASS!!! He teaches normal then assigns easy homework to lull you into a false sense of security then BAM! The tests are beyond insane and not even the other Statics teachers could figure them out. Save yourself some time and money by taking someone else.

I think its funny how people dont like this prof. If you want to be an engineer you have to learn how to think critically and that's exactly how his exams are set up. If you take the time to understand the material not just memorize & go off of hw, you can succeed in this class. TESTS ARE NOT …more SUPPOSED TO BE LIKE HW! Otherwise everyone would get As! less

The subject is hard but he is very clear and helpful. He moves quickly so you have to keep up with the material. He expects a lot but prepares you well for other classes. He is also good at answering emails and having office hours for questions. He's the Dean of Engineering so he has high …more expectations. less

While the tests are VERY difficult he does an excellent job of presenting the material. He posts recordings of lectures online and does a "Recitation Session" every week that he also posts a recording of. The recordings are EXTREMELY helpful and you should absolutely watch every one of them. …more Overall I really feel I learned a lot. less

Required for "easy A"(our first test).-Study an Undergrad math Doc (added this because he published it). -Re-watch his video lectures (Because you have time for that).-Re work your HW (Typical studying technique). -Review questions in "chats and discuss board" (why is this on the test?). I think he …more wrote his pos reviews. Take Dr. Shotorban! less

This class is difficult and requires a lot of hard work (He's the Dean of Engineering), but if you keep up with the material and do all the assignments, it will be worth it. Learned a lot.
