Elementary Particle Physics
Professor Cousins is, concisely, what every college professor should be. His lectures are both articulate and comprehendable; when a mistake or complication comes up in class, he is sure to clarify it in an email or in the following class period. His handouts, homeworks, midterms, and finals are all very well integrated with the lecture and reading material; no question is trivial or beyond the scope of the course, and each reinforces key ideas presented in lecture. Personally, I found him very friendly, knowledgable, genuinely concerned with student learning, and occassionally humorous. In my 4 years as a physics major, I have never been so interested, nor have I ever learned so well in any class as I did in his physics 126 class. If you are concerned with receiving a fair shake, and a real opportunity to learn well, Professor Cousins is THE professor to consider.
