A great professor overall. One of the best professors in the physics department of UCLA. Very engaging lectures and he's always trying to be helpful. His exams are a little hard, but to be fair, most physics exams are hard anyway.

I felt very mislead by the other bruinwalk reviews for his other courses. Samani's class was the most difficult and unclear class I have ever taken. There is a lot of homework every week, his lectures seem to barely cover any content and the practice exams that he gives are 10x harder than problems covered in lecture. He says he gives a lot of extra credit but the class is not curved and the total amount of extra credit adds up to about 4%. He is a very nice guy but I did not enjoy this class at all.

Samani is a really good lecturer and teacher. His lectures are interesting and he stays on topic in class. He also wrote his own lecture notes for this class which replaced the need for a textbook. His notes are actually pretty short, but very concise and basically everything you need to know for the tests. With that said, his tests are still pretty hard. Great professor overall.
