STAY AWAY FROM THIS PROFESSOR. He will lead you to believe that you are doing well in the class even if your grades are VERY high above the class averages, but he will still grade you on a regular grading scale. So 90% of the class will probably get a B- and below. He is also a horrible grader and …more will penalize you a lot of points for every mistake less

as a lab professor he was pretty sloppy. notes weren't very well written and the lab wasn't explained well. lab reports were graded hard but he allowed re-do's(but who wants to re-do a lab?) his final was hard, unlike other lab professors finals where you can choose 3/5 problems to do, you have to …more do all of his...avoid if possible less

Horrible, grades lab reports harshly even though there are redos (which e basically gives 5 points above the grade you received) talks on and on limiting lab time hard final (open book/note) stay away if possible, i did a lab report and did half of one and got the same grade (fair to say grades …more unfairly) less

The guy cannot teach!! His slideshow of notes are terrible and cannot grade anything correctly. The only way to learn anything is from the textbook. Do not take his class.

I think Prof. Herbert is an outstanding professor. His lectures are interesting. He grades fairly and knows what he's talking about. If you genuinely want to learn physics and are willing to put in the effort then I recommend Prof. Herbert.

Dr. Herbert is a genuinely nice person who is always willing to help. He comes off as not such a nice guy, but he really just wants you to do your best. He grades very fairly, and if you know how to do lab reports, you'll do great. I really don't understand why he's gotten such bad ratings.

He is very nice and willing to help if you have any questions. Rely's on the book a lot, but Physics in general is not an easy subject. In order to do well in this class you must out in the extra hours outside of class. I recommend taking this professor.

Physics is a hard subject in general. Prof Herbert gives 3 tests, a final, and 3 quizzes. You basically learn everything through the assigned homework problems, which is an easy way to boost your grade. The class is tough, so if you work hard hopefully it will pay off.
