Comment:
Dr. Slavsky is, in my opinion, the best professor at Loyola. He is fiercely caring for his students. He is very challenging when it comes to homework (I often spent 7 hours a week doing homework for the upper-level physics courses I took with him), but you learn so much and in such detail that it is completely worth it. His tests are very fair.

Comment:
Dr. Slavsky is a great professor! However, he makes you work for the grade, found this class to be very difficult. You will need to rely heavily on the book or going to see him to succeed. The homework is very time consuming but usually represents what will be on the test. He is very helpful in office hours and cares about his students succeeding.

Dr. Slavsky is one of the best professors you will have for physics. He gives homework every week that will take you at least 5 hours to finish. Other than that come to class and pay attention. He cracks a few jokes here and there.

I don't think this class ended up being as bad as everyone makes it out to be. Although the course was challenging, I still enjoyed my experience in it. Slavsky is a remarkable professor with an amazing passion for teaching. My only complaint is that I didn't enjoy the graded group work exercises. You really have to apply yourself to get an A.

Comment:
Dr. Slavsky is the most inspirational physics professor I have ever had the pleasure of studying under. Make no mistake, he is not an easy professor. I had an easier time in the class because I have a background in physics, yet I found myself relying on extra reading and doing homework problems two and three times over to do well in the class.

Dr Slavsky is one of the most professional teachers I've ever come across. That being said, his tests are very crammed for time unless you know exactly what you are doing.

The fact that half the students dropped the class after the exam is telling you something. Unfortunately, the class is pre-req for all upper division Physics classes.

You get out of the class what you put into it. His tests and homework are extremely fair and he will ALWAYS help you understand the material if you visit him in his office. Mastering the material will make your future classes much easier.

Good class, good review of previous material although I wish we did more at the end. Very clear lectures, prof always around to help, LOTS of homework but we usually got them back the next class period.
