Most Helpful Review
Winter 2022 - Professor Huan was a solid professor. The class was mostly run by the TA's however and my TA's were both great. For my quarter there was a lab a week for 10 weeks. The first two weeks were online and just mostly about using python for data analysis. The rest of the labs were in-person, and were very enjoyable. This class had 7 graded formal reports. I thought that the grading of the reports were generally very fair. The reports didn't need to be very long either, anywhere from 3-5 pages was a good length. Depending on your TA the grading could be either good or bad, but for my case it was good. The reports are due by the end of the quarter. My advice would be to do 1 report a week though. If you let the reports pile up then you will be struggling to complete them at the end of the quarter which may impact final exam studying. Some of the labs that were done include the photoelectric effect, building radios, measuring the e/m ratio, and superconductivity. The labs were engaging and fun. The only major complaint I had was with the lab manual. Some of the labs were structured very clearly, however some, if not most, were structured in a confusing manner. I found myself having to ask the TA's a lot of questions to clarify what to actually do in the labs. Also, it was kind of hard to understand Huan in the zoom sessions, mostly due to his mic quality. Overall Huan was a good professor and structured this lab class fairly. I would take Huan again.
