Electrical and Electronic Circuits
Briggs was straight up by the book, no curve balls or anything. I went to class probably three times and did really well. He offered three extra credit assignments which can boost your grade by a +/- for each one, so effectively one whole grade if you do all three. If your'e good at working out of the book then you should have no problem at all.
Not good at teaching the material. Luckily, during my quarter, we had good TAs. Make sure to go the discussion sections because they really helped. Fair grader and tests aren't too difficult. Got an A- in the class, but it was because I read the textbook and went to discussion sections.
DO NOT TAKE THIS PROFESSOR. AVOID AT ALL COSTS. First of all his examples and problems he does in class are nothing similar to what you see on the midterms and final. To do well in his class you need to understand his material at a level of an electrical engineer. But this is EE for NON-EE majors. It seems easy at first but towards the end he will squeeze in so much material that you will not have time to get comfortable with it before taking the final and then you're $#%!ed. Also really read the book and go to discussion and office hours. DO NOT rely on the lectures alone to teach you the material. He also has an accent. Its not bad but its apparent. do yourself a favor and avoid him in the future.
Spring 2020 - This class was really rough as an online class. Having only posted lectures (usually posted at odd times) did not help students feel able to ask questions or approach the professor with concerns. The videos were usually difficult to understand or didn't go into depth on topics, and rarely showed examples that were useful. He kept saying "This is a midterm-level example" on easy problems but the midterms were absolutely unbelievable (first was a lot worse than second). I didn't think his lectures were that bad, but I never understood things the first time and only got them after reviewing notes a bunch and doing the homework with help from Chegg. Proctored exams were rough and need to be improved to run them more smoothly. On the plus side, I think the materia is pretty cool but is not helped by this guy.
