Comment:
He always seems like he is overflowing with happiness. Talking with him makes my day better. His class started out really easy; I thought about dropping it because it was too easy. By the end, I was struggling to to complete the homework. Dr. Campagnari is always ready to answer your questions. I highly recommend him, if you are ready to work.

Two words: awesome curve. His final average was an 80, he still decided to curve the class average to a B+. Very nice and lectures actually make sense (unlike most teachers in the 20 series).

Meh, this class was okay. It was hard, but I would recommend going to office hours since the grades are flexible and curved. CLAS is important. Class is helpful and necessary. Do the practice problems and homework. I think the only teachers for this class are him and another guy who has a similar teaching style so this review is rather pointless :)

He is an OK lecturer and I did a lot better than I thought I would. I wish he taught the entire 6 physics series.

Comment:
Professor Campagnari is brilliant but relaxed in his teaching and very approachable. I went to around 75% of his lectures, read the book, and did the hw and there were no surprises on his exams or final. He's also really reasonable with grading and curves. Wish I had him for 6B.

Overall good Professor, makes problems more complicated then they are sometimes but is very good at explaining basic concepts. Tests and exams are challenging but his curve is more than generous! 75-90% is an A in the class.

This is a very difficult class, but Campagnari was good at breaking down information during lecture. You definitely have to rely on the book to do well though.

Comment:
Not easy. The final had about 50 multiple choice questions that were not straightforward. Stressed by the second half. His teachings do not help, 1/2 the class didn't go. If you want to get a good grade, definitely read. Homework doesn't really help either.

decent lecturer. the tests are multiple choice but they are still somewhat challenging. he is honestly interested in making sure that students are learning and cares about how they do. id you go to him early in the quarter he will gladly take feedback on lectures and try to improve them according to students needs.

Comment:
Campagnari is a decent teacher, but reading the book is definitely required for a complete understanding. His midterm and final are both multiple choice and VERY concept-oriented. You will not have to do a lot of calculation and such to get these exams. The guy can get frustrated/frustrating at times, but sometimes he's funny.

Comment:
He was one of the better Physics teachers i had. Mechanics is as boring as it gets but he managed to keep me awake. Not too hard of a class if you do your hmwk. I didn't do mine and got a B. If i did do it an A would have been easy to get.

Comment:
His tests are long, part mutiple choice with two written problems. He drops one of your lowest Quiz scores. The book blows. You're better off with the book they use to use University Physics Young & Freedman, that book goes all the way up to the beginning of physics 5 so if you're an engineering mayor check it out. CLAS with VINCE.

dude that podium thing was awesome. I also remember when that guy was spinning on the stool and pulled the free weights closer to himself to lower his moment of inertia and almost fell over because his rotational velocity became so high. good stuff.

ehhhhh he was ok. Im not really into physics so I thought I was gonna die in every boring lecture. He has weekly quizzes though too, which I didn't like, I thought they were sometimes a little difficult. The midterm I thought was really easy but the final was quite challenging but the curve helped out so an A is possible even with the confusion.

Comment:
Physics is a conceptual class, if you get it, you get it, and if you dont, you dont. Therefore, he is described by people who dont get physics as "hard" and those who get physics as "easy". So if you're an average student, put in the extra effort and you'll get an A. the curve was rediculous. anything above a 75% was an A. wow
