Comment: Golightly is just like his name sounds. He is always calm and well-composed during his lectures even when the demos don't turn out perfectly. Occasionally it is a bit difficult to pay attention but I always found his lectures helpful and applicable for the homework assignments and exams. His class is very well structured and he breaks everything down on day 1 so there aren't any surprises in terms of grading, homework, and test questions. His exams are predictable conceptually (i.e. you can guess what's going to show up). Golightly definitely knows the material and clearly has the experience to command this class. Highly recommended :)

Comment: Prof. Golightly is a good lecturer, and the demos for this class are pretty cool. Plus, he gives us a short break halfway into classes, so overall, the lectures are pretty enjoyable and helpful. Also, he gives us unlimited tries on MasteringPhysics, so we can actually work on the problems and try to fully understand them without worrying about our homework score.
