Tufts University: PHY012 - General Physics II w/lab - Physics - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Hugh Gallagher | PHY012 - General Physics II w/lab | Physics2008-04-10

Review:
Professor Gallagher is an ok teacher. It doesn't help that I don't really like Physics E&M in the first place. The beginning was a little frustrating, when he'd only do derivations on the board. But he always has PowerPoint slides for every lecture, and I'm just starting to realize how useful they are. They're clear and summarize the book well. All in all, he's a good teacher, especially when considering some of the other teachers in the physics department.

Workload:
Problem set every week, takes a few hours. Sometimes the problems are really hard so I'd recommend going to recitation. Or having a really smart friend.

Just a word of warning - the averages for tests are not that high. It was a 79 for the 1st midterm and a 68 for the 2nd.

Yaacov Shapira | PHY012 - General Physics II w/lab | Physics2006-05-07

Review:
Shapira looks bored by his own subject. His classes are a waste of time, as he teaches directly from the book, only not as well. If you really care about learning physics, you're probably better off learning it on your own. If you only care about getting through physics with an A, then take this class.

Workload:
Pretty easy class to get through without a lot of work.

Yaacov Shapira | PHY012 - General Physics II w/lab | Physics2005-12-01

Review:
Just reads his pre-written notes to you, not very useful classtime. I learned everything on my own or in recitation.

Workload:
Easy labs. One problem set per week, usually 1-2 hours.
