Comment: Somewhat interesting. Worth going to sometimes if the lecturer is talking about something you're interested in. Otherwise it's pretty easy to get the secret word from someone else.

Comment: You toil through many hardships to understand what this teacher is trying to make us learn, and then, at the end of the course, you will discover with horror, that you have learned absolutely nothing.

Comment: Mofrad is a great teacher, despite what you hear through rumors. He explains complex ideas clearly. Although his midterm and final constitute 70% of your grade, if you have done the homework, the exams are just like it. Do the homework and you'll be fine!

Comment: This class was okay, but the amount of work put into the project can affect the performance on the final. There seemed to be conflicting types of ideas presented about what the class was focused on; several times there was reassurance that there would not be memorization required, but the midterms and final seemed to go against this. The topic for the project was actually quite interesting, but my group wished there was more freedom to focus on different problems.

Comment: Havent made it to the first exam yet, but if the homework is any indication, it is gonna be a killing field. For anyone planning on taking this course: the homework is given out on Weds make sure to start it at least by Friday. If you do you will find yourself struggling HARD to get the answers. Other than that, labs every week, homework every week. I will say Mofrad does try VERY hard to lecture well, but his personality overall is rather quiet Ill say...

Comment: No real application-oriented thinking in the class. And without application, we found the material very useless. He's enthusiastic about the subject, but he explains things for WAY too long sometimes. Tests are random as some questions pop out of no where (meaning its hard to study for because you dont know what he wants.)

Comment: 102 teaches important fundamentals for bioengineering no matter what major you are, but Professor Mofrad leaves much to be desired in the way of teaching technique and ability. He tries to be a nice guy outside of class, but the material is very hard and tedious to learn from him.

Comment: Take home tests. Hard homework, but fair grading. I think that what made this class for me was the fantastic GSI, so don't hold this review with too much weight in the future because I doubt that you will find a GSI as good in the near future.
