Waung teaches equations... and that's about it. He DOES NOT TEACH concepts, which unfortunately are what his exam test. I agree with the last reviewer who said his homework problems and class examples ARE NOTHING like what he gives on exams. In addition, the lecture examples even ARE NOT GOOD ENOUGH to do the homework!!! Waung definitely got tougher this year, because I had many of his older exams, and let's just say those were a cakewalk compared to what he gave to us. I tested myself with those exams in the 50 minutes that you are alloted during tests, and I breezed by those rather easily... couldn't say the same for the actual tests Fall '01 quarter. Lastly... the final was killer. Multiple concepts in one problem X 8 problems! We had a couple concepts that were not even given in class or homework problems of. In fact, there was one problem during the final in which I asked the TA proctoring the exam to clarify for me. His answer was to the like of "Don't bother with that one, just try do it if you have time". If you want to go to his office hours, that's fine... that is if you are already in the top 5% of the class. When I went to one of his office hours to try and understand a concept on which I was completely lost, Waung made me look completely dumb in front of other people when he kept staring at me for an answer when I told him that I don't know the answer and that is why I came to him for help. Nice job... He used to give lots of A's and may have gotten a bad rap for doing that, but giving less A's is fine as long as you still do a decent job of preparing students for your exams... which obviously Waung failed to do so last quarter. I could have done better had it not been for the 2nd Midterm in which the class average was 57/100 with a Standard Deviation of 22! I've never seen a test where the SD is 20% of the points on the test! All that shows was a bad job of making a test. I guess if you want to do well in his class, you just have to deal with all this and study very hard every little concept because anything is game for his tests. I did and I got a B+.
