Physics for Scientists and Engineers: Oscillations, Waves, Electric and Magnetic Fields (Honors)
Winter 2020 - I really liked Professor Holczer. He's very friendly and understanding and it's obvious he cares a lot about his students. However, he admittedly isn't a great lecturer. He's very disorganized during lecture and his handwriting can be hard to read at times. He does have an accent but I could understand him perfectly fine. The first 6 homeworks for this class were pretty hard because some of the questions were written by our TA. Homeworks 7-9 were much much easier, however, since by this point Holczer had just been uploading the homework himself which consisted only of pictures of problems from the textbook. The midterms and final were all very easy. From what it sounds like, a large portion of people in this class will be getting an A/A+. I'm fairly certain that I'm in the minority of students when I say I would recommend taking Holczer if you have the chance. Despite his lectures, he is a very fun person to talk to outside of class and is very willing to answer your questions if you have any (I've also found that his explanations in office hours are A LOT better than they are in lectures).
