Review #1 / Course: PHYS 2001 / Instructor: YOUNG D
Very hard if you aren't good at physics (but not as bad as 2002!) Young teaches by powerpoints (opposed to Chastain who writes on the board alot and supplements with powerpoints) The good thing about Young is he does the review sessions, and it seemed he played a bigger part than the other professors in making out the exams.

Review #2 / Course: PHYS 2002 / Instructor: YOUNG D
Dr. Young is an excellent teacher and is interested in making sure his students understand the material taught, which is a big plus for a course like physics! Homework twice a week is mandatory and a big pain/stress, but unlike physics 1, Young will eliminate one of the homeworks on test week. Exams this semester were in the computer lab, which was AWFUL, but department-wide so avoiding Young won't change that. If you are required to take this class, Young is a great bet.

Great teacher and class. If you spend one night a week for 2 hours and complete the homework then that is the only studing you need to do for the tests. No outside work required and no time limit homework

Dr. Young may be a bit arrogant, but he is a great teacher and will help you get through this course (even if you aren't getting it) as long as you go see him. I wish I had visited his office hours earlier on in the semester!

Review #5 / Course: PHYS 2002 / Instructor: YOUNG D
Young is not a bad guy, it's the departmental tests that will kill you. Best advice--work as many problems from the book and go over the concept reviews at the end of the book: that's where the majority of the problems will come from.

Dr. Young was great! Very down to Earth & the coolest teacher I've ever had. Go to class for clicker questions. He can be tricky. For webassign homeworks, just go to Cramster.com or get the "CD". He lets out early. Awesome experiments!Take HIM!

This is just a hard class. Young is cocky and arrogant but if you can ignore his personality, he isn't that bad. He curves because the tests are so hard and you run out of time to finish. Good luck.

Young is a DB, he is good at reading straight from the powerpoint. Test are not like the webassign, conceptual questions are really trick questions. Do not take him, unless you need an hour out of your day for a nap during his class.

2002 is a lot harder than 2001. Do not blow off studying for any exams, they are tough...and there are few gimmie questions. young is a nice guy though, and very pleasant in office hours...just be prepared to study a lot. no, seriously.

I failed to realize what a teacher this man was until my professor changed for 2002. Be certain to take him both semesters; most of the alternatives profs are unbearable. His lectures are well presented in class, organized, coherent, and fascinating.
