    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The material is challenging, but the instructor was far more challenging at times. From the old school (I'm guessing Pakistani old school), gives no quarter, at many moments confrontational and impatient, abrasive with students. Not necessarily the best instructor, but that said I would NEVER denigrate his abilities as a physicist. Truly a talented mathematician and quite gifted with physical science. Applies no curves ever, extends deadlines only in the event of his need, but in some moments his passion for the material shines through and he could share that with students.

    Course highlights:

    Nuclear physics, optics, electrical physics, magnetism and fields, relativistic physics, reflection and refraction, atomic decay, minor chemistry.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Perhaps overqualified for the position teaching, Dr. Alam has a deep interest and ability in the material. On the other hand, not necessarily the same gift and passion for teaching the material. One could choose worse much profs, but be prepared: Do the homework, all of it. Study a full day for every exam if you want better than I got. I put in several hours per, did all homework and walked with a C. There will be no gimmes in this class, even for the slightly above average.
