Prof. Gutperle is a brilliant man. He knows his stuff and knows how to convey it to his students - with a hilarious German accent, unexpected puns, and a bunch of in-your-face demos. There are 2 (doable) midterms, ridiculous reading quizzes (online), and a somewhat challenging final. He's the most generous grader you will ever get: Substantial partial credit on exams and a curve set @ B/B- where the top 25% of the class get an A! Take him; you won't regret it unless you know that you will be incapable of acquiring a fundamental understanding of waves, electrostatics, electrodynamics, and magnetism.
Prof. Gutperle is a very unique person; he is a physicist AND he has a sence of humor:)) He is a good teacher and he knows his stuff. The only complaint I have, is that he hardly ever solves example problems in the class, but he gives problems you've never seen on the test. The only practice you get solving problems is during the homework, and maybe if you have good TA during Discussons. The tests however are not anything like the HW problems. I did good in the class just because the averages on the tests were really low. However, he is a very conserned teacher, he is there if you have any questions.
