Comment:
Bitter, hostile, angry. Openly insults students and ended class after having a meltdown for no apparent reason on more than one occasion. Work is not the worst possible math ever but if you aren't sure about the subject going into it, he sure isn't going to make it any clearer. Does not give partial credit although he claims he does. AWFUL.

Comment:
For a required math class it was pretty painless as far as workload. However the class itself was boring and Brook had a tendency to be unclear in his teaching at times. No explanation of grading on exam and test questions. Also was rude to students during class. If you can deal with him then this class is a breeze.

He's nice if you talk to him after class, but sometimes he's just rude no matter what you do or say. Very unclear. Very strange. Loves to spell.

Brook could be funny at times, but other times he's very moody and gets annoyed at everything.

Don't take this class. Find someone else to teach you, to get your math credit. I found him to be alot like hs and he is defintly not clear or conscise on some of the things he teaches. I feel like he is more interested in spelling then teaching us.

Comment:
Not a fun class. Very unclear in explaining stuff. It was easy stuff, but I am a history major and had to get math out the way and found myself very confused. My quiz average was less than a 50 and I failed one test, but did well on the final so the course policy which states if you do better on the final than a previous test the grade changes to w

If you think this class will be a breeze because you took it in high school, don't take it with Brook. I remembered all this material from high school, but he is just really unclear and confusing. Although, he does make me laugh because he's old and senile. He repeats himself a lot and his rules are like being in high school. Don't take it with him

He should have been out of the game years ago. Old, senile, and passed his time. Repeats himself 5 or 6 times. Very disrespectful to students. Would not recommend him AT ALL. Makes mistakes during examples, loses papers. Worst professor I've ever had.

He was pretty disrespectful to many of the students and extremely boring, but other than that his class isn't too hard. It's only painful.

He is kind of dry but if you actually pay attention, really funny. he makes jokes that you don't really know if he's joking or not but he usually is. as for material-if you ask him to explain something he will. he also repeats himself numerous times, making learning much easier. it's hard to do bad in this class

Comment:
Horrible teacher! I appeared to be doing bad because he is **** (favoring girls) and he was constantly unclear in his questions. He also made at least 1 mistake on an example per class and when we would catch him on it, he would defend himself by saying "Just trust me, I'm right."

Comment:
If you can manage to get another professor for this class, I would highly suggest doing so. His explanations were vague and often misleading. I managed to pull an A based on what i remembered from high school, but I felt bad for students whose first encounter with the material was in his class. He's confusing, dull, and slightly arrogant. Watch out

This class is very easy, dont do the homework and you will still get an A. Brook is very straight forward and will prepare you well for the test. HE is also very boring and will put you alseep. I do recommend him however

Comment:
His class is generally pretty straightforward and clear. Doing the homework probably helps, but I don't and I'm still doing fairly well in the class. He's kind of boring, but he usually lets class out early... not always, and sometimes it's only by five or ten minutes, but he hasn't kept our class there for the whole time on too many occasions.

Comment:
Really not as bad as these comments say he is. Very easy class, great for winter session. Dr. Brook can be a little boring in his lectures, but other than than is a pretty decent guy who knows what he's teaching. He is very helpful if you ask him and always reviews before quizzes and tests, which are usually easy. Pretty nice guy overall.
