Comment:
ENGR 2231,3233 and CENG 3331 are all hard classes no matter who you take. Navaee Is not the easiest professor however his test portray what he teaches and while he uses the book sometimes he does not expect the book to do his job for him. Fair Grading. Helpful in and outside of class. Pay attention and study and you will pass.

Comment:
Navaee uses the hardest textbook problems on his tests, a lot harder than the homework. He'll talk about the test DURING THE TEST, which is really distracting. He has a bitter attitude overall. Please take someone else for Mechanics of Materials!

Comment:
I personally didn't have the best Statics professor, so I really struggled teaching myself stuff I should've learned previously and the new material. Other professors while they might be easier, you know that upon completing this class you've truly learned the needed material. The exams make up 90% of the course's grade, so beware.

This dude is the rudest human being alive. He grades test pretty fair but will make you feel like an idiot if you ask any questions. Okay professor. Screwed our class with the final. Told us there would be four questions and we had to study four months of information and basically guess what will be the most important to look at. TONS OF HW

Comment:
Navaee is a tough grader. 90% of your grade is based off 3 tests. When you ask him questions in class he makes you feel stupid when he answers. And when he does answer your question he gives a very confusing answer. He gives a lot of hw. I actually put a lot of studying time into this class but will still fail. I would avoid taking him if you can.

There isn't a lot of middle ground with him. I have found that you either do really well because you put in the work, or you fail because you don't. His homework isn't worth many grade points but it is 100% essential to pass his tests. If you want an easy A, steer clear. If you want to know the material inside and out there is no better option.

Comment:
Horrible professor. Grades very harshly and does not have a fixed rubric so good luck with partial credit. Has a sour attitude during lectures and becomes very angry if there are not enough people participating. Acts as if the material is common knowledge and speeds through course material with reckless abandon. Assigns massive amounts of homework

3 tests determine your grade. Each test has 3 problems. Some partial credit is given but he is a tough grader.

Comment:
Gives A LOT of homework. But it's not busywork homework, he actually handpicks the problems so that you will be prepared for the test. The downside of the homework, its a lot of work, however at the end of the course YOU WILL understand the material. Also, tests are hard, but he gives lots of partial credit if you at least give him stuff to grade.

I had to drop this class due to the tests. There's homework every week that is very hard-even on test weeks we had 3-4 hours of homework due. The tests are 3-4 questions and he grades very tough. I went to his office and he said I shouldn't be working so hard because his class is common sense, elementary and basic. I couldn't deal with that.

Dr. Navaee is an amazing instructor. He is a difficult instructor but if you stick with it you will know the material. He will help you out if you help yourself. He does not grade hard on test but you need to at least give him some material to grade.

Comment:
First off, this is a 2014 review. I feel like he has read these reviews because he tries VERY hard to be humble and to make concepts as clear as possible. I have no complaints about this teacher. His tests are definitely a challenge, and there is LOTS of homework (going on 35 HW problem sets), BUT you will be amazing at this class once you're out.

Will give example and teach one thing, but will give test and homework over something completely foreign. Do not recommend this teacher what so ever, avoid if possible.

I took Dr. Navaee because I wanted to keep my schedule to classes only on Tuesdays and Thursdays and he was the only one who offered it class then. I ignored all the comments on here and thought I could take him. NOPE. Only class I've ever withdrawn from. Steer clear. If the sections with other profs are full, honestly just wait a semester.

Comment:
He wasn't bad. His tests were fair, very similar to the HW. He took a while to return the graded tests, but was very good about partial credit. He is arrogant, and the class is by no means a breeze, but an A is doable with some out of class effort. 3-4 question tests, no equation sheets, but you definitely learn the material. Knows his stuff.

IMPOSSIBLE PROFESSOR. MORE THAN HALF THE CLASS FAILED. UNHELPFUL. MAKES PROBLEMS UP FOR HIS EXAMS. Exams had 4-5 problems each and they were each worth 22-25 points. no extra credit.

Comment:
HE is a very hard grader and doesn't really give much partial credit. He teaches off of a projector and teaches through labs so that you have to find time on your own to do the labs. He only has three test grades and two homeworks. He grades only one problem from homework and it's typically the hardest. About 85% of class will get 'C's and that is "A" students.
