DO NOT TAKE HUANG IF YOU ARE ACTUALLY INTERESTED IN LEARNING ANYTHING. Honestly I'm someone who loves to learn and apply the things I learn. Professor Huang was a terrible teacher in that sense! Yeah he's understanding with homework, like if you need an extension he says he'll grant it for you no problem and if you get homework incorrect then you can re-do all of it and submit it at the end of the quarter for full credit, but he was honestly the worst professor I've ever had at UCLA. He didn't teach me literally anything and what's worse is he was very discouraging! His midterm averages were 49% and 51% and he said to use that his tests weren't hard, "we just didn't get the material," like what kind of professor doesn't realize that averages that low mean something is wrong with his tests. He thought they were super easy because most of them were from the homework, but change in some "small" way which actually made the problem so much harder. He also takes the HARDEST questions and put them into tests and to complete four HARD, questions that you aren't familiar with in 50 minutes is virtually impossible! His lectures were worthless, I had to teach myself everything. I went to every lecture and discussion, read the text book countless times, did all the mastering physics multiple times and the textbook questions and this class was still very difficult for me. Dr. Huang may have thought his tests were easy because his questions were derived from the mastering physics but he never ACTUALLY taught us how to do any of those problems, he just gave them as homework and they were very hard to do. He does allow for a cheat sheet but its hard to use that during a short 50 minute test. He actually said that one student just copied down the answer from the homework and submitted it on the test and got it right. Like yeah thats great but that just shows that that student literally DIDN'T LEARN ANYTHING except how to copy down a problem. It's teachers like Professor Huang that literally make learning worthless and whats worth is is that he didn't even understand how horrible of a teacher he was. I went in to office hours a couple of times and he helped me a few problems which seemed to make sense when he said them, but again he never taught us ANY OF that. In conclusion, I really would advise against taking physics with Huang. He gives terrible tests that don't test you on anything you've learned and makes education worthless, he doesn't understand that he's a terrible professor, and if you're trying to obtain any knowledge for the MCAT, this is NOT the guy for you.

This was the shittiest class I took so far at UCLA. Absolutely useless and the professor didn't give a single flying fuck. It takes 20+ hours every week and Huang tried his best to make it even harder. Well, I understand that he was scared of teaching the class because he only taught it once, like a decade ago. I just hope he is never forced to teach it again.
