Comment:
Professor Mullen seems to like statics very much, and initially gives students hope that they could potentially learn. Unfortunately, however, he is not a good communicator. The professor's writing is hard to read and most of the learning takes place via poorly-written textbook. The TA's try to help, but sometimes even they can't answer questions.

Comment:
Mullen is quite possibly the worst professor at Case. Lecture is worthless. I probably learned more about statics by just reading the book. Why do they even need to pay this man to teach the class? He's a waste of my tuition.

Comment:
He is a decent professor. He's not always clear and sometimes makes mistakes when doing problems in class but he's a nice guy and very approachable. His exams were challenging and sometimes tricky. He balanced this by curving the grade at the end of the semester. For example, the A cutoff has ranged from an 82 to an 89 depending of the semester

Comment:
Mullen is a really nice guy, but he's a horrible prof. There's homework due every class, but it's only worth 10% of your grade. The tests are impossible (he actually had a problem that you had to do in a way we were taught NOT to in order to get it right). I know a lot of smart people who got B's and C's in there. I don't know anyone who got an A.

Comment:
Mullen can't teach to save his life. He grades rather harshly and the exam questions are just unfair and full of trickery. I do not recommend him at all. Probably the worst professor I've had at Case so far.

Comment:
I think Professor Mullen is a nice guy and is approachable, but as far as teaching statics goes, it isn't efficient or much helpful. I don't attend class mainly because of that reason and rather learn the material on my own instead.

A nice guy, but can't teach engineering core Statics to save his life. Frequently gets problems wrong during class, asks ridiculous questions on exams, and frequently loses homework assignments and exams. Avoid.

Comment:
Mullen is dedicated to the cause of wrongness. He gets answers (on practice problems and examples) wrong at least as often as he gets them right. He's very confusing and hard to learn from. Homework is excessive and is assigned before material is taught (which is never). Exams are ridiculous, covering material that wasn't even mentioned in class.

Comment:
While his Michael Flatley impression is entertaining when he gets excited, his lectures are unclear, material on/difficulty of exams are a crapshoot, and he is incapable of completing example problems without committing many, many errors.

He's so bad, his tests should be easy but he can't teach at all so they're hard and pretty much don't take him unless you have to

Comment:
Hes a nice guy, he teaches the necessary concepts in a very straightforward manner, sticking closely to the book. He posts his class notes in typed form on blackboard, which is helpful if you miss a class. Sometimes he is unclear and sometimes talks about unrelated concepts in a confusing way, but overall he gets the necessary points across.

Pretty sweet guy. Lectures are excellent and his TAs were high quality. Made statics easy. I'd take him again.

I don't really know why so many people are ragging on Prof. Mullen. I thought he was very nice and helpful, and his tests were easy. I guess people thought the course was difficult, but I got an A without hardly going to lecture.
