WORST PROFESSOR I HAVE EVER HAD AT UCLA, HANDS DOWN. AVOID AT ALL COSTS. He is a terrible lecturer - half of the time you can't hear or understand what he says, even if you sit in front. He assigns homework that is vaguely relevant to his exams - I did all of the problems he assigned and most of the unassigned problems in the chapter and still had no idea what he was asking on the exams. I was really struggling in his class because I was having trouble visualizing E&M, and he made it nearly impossible for me to understand or improve. I couldn't make his office hours because they conflicted with another class, and he was nearly impossible to contact. He took nearly three weeks to email me back about an appointment to discuss the midterm, and when I finally met with him he literally told me, "I don't know what to tell you to do." I went to my TA's office hours, got one-on-one help from my TA, was enrolled in Covel Peer Learning Labs, and even paid for a private tutor and still ended up with only a C+ in the class. Just to give you a taste of the class...our final exam was so ridiculous that the average was a 31%. Needless to say, this class thoroughly disappointed me as I endured the experience of having a professor who clearly only cared about research and not teaching (apparently he invented some sort of laser).
