Comment:
Professor Kaiser's idea of teaching revolves around throwing as much content at your face in the shortest time possible, and hoping you keep up. There is next to no theory taught in class. He does example after example by himself on the board, does not pause to take questions, does not encourage student participation, and does not hand out notes.

Comment:
Took him for fields and continuous systems. Definitely a hard prof. Go to his office hours, study all the previous tests, and don't slack off. Finals are curved. For fields, I went in to the final with an A. Out of 5 questions, I only semi-answered one, and I still got a B+. He will not take pity on you if you don't try or reach out to him though.

He is the best professor in ECE department. But honestly, his tests are really difficult.

Comment:
This is baby circuits and he know it. Lectures are solely him working through problems from tests and quizzes. Then, the day before the quiz or test, you have a chance where if you can do the problem perfectly you get credit for it on the test. focus on the pre-tests and you'll only do 1/3 of the questions on each test and get an easy A.

Comment:
Kaiser is a prime example of why a Ph.D. is not equivalent to a teaching degree. His teaching method is throwing things at you as fast as possible without pausing to make sure that you understand what you are doing. Also didn't let a class pass without lauding himself for how difficult his class is. Kettering's worst professor hands down.

Comment:
Any class where the prof will give a student a B+ because they could not guess the right answers on the A final even if you have 100% in the class going into the final and did well on the B final is no friend of his students. Be prepared to be insulted and have to deal with this man constantly boasting about his achievements and intelligence.

Kaiser took an easy class and made it extremely difficult, half of the class had dropped at the end term, and some students still failed after that. If you can take this class during other term where he isn't teaching it, DO IT! The man makes no sense and it takes maximum effort on the students part in order to pass. Kaiser will fail you real Fayst

If you end up having Kaiser as your Professor for EE 212, good luck passing the class. Your grade is based purely on exams and the final, no solutions are ever posted for any. Very bad at actually teaching useful information. The only thing you get from attending class is example problems which he races through at a speed you cant retain anything.

Comment:
Kaiser is by far one of the worst professors that I have ever had. Terrible at actually teaching, he only starts out with examples, moves way too fast, and is very unreasonable. It is a joke that Kettering has allowed this type of a person to remain at the university for so long.

Comment:
Circuits should not be difficult and Kaiser finds a way to make it nearly impossible. Tests are impossible the first time around, but he offers make up tests at the end of the semester. Finish all the material in 7 weeks and had 4 weeks for "review." Had a study group outside of class and managed an A, but I was 1 of only 2 out of 60+ students.

Comment:
His lectures consist of about 100 example problems, conveniently not explained for the sake of doing more example problems. Your questions will be greeted by more example problems which I can only hope you will understand if you had/have to take him. There is no homework. No feedback until after you take a graded example problem.

Comment:
If you did very well in circuits 1 then getting Kaiser for circuits 2 isn't the end of the world. He's a decent professor but you have to be willing to put in the time outside of class to really learn the material. All of his old tests are online and I highly recommend you study from them and study for every in class opportunity.

Comment:
Professor Kaiser's class is awesome. A lot of people complain about it being too fast or too difficult, but that's what this school is about, doing it at a fast pace. I think he does a great job explaining the content and presenting it. He does it in a way that once he is done talking, you can actually understand what's happening. Absolute genius.

Comment:
Weekly quizzes are tough: he will use a lot of trick questions. Greater than half of the class was failing after midterms. It is all theory in EMC, and the questions are of applications. The issue is that he dosn't provide any CORRECT examples. They all have major issues and he moves on and ignores them. Never miss a class or you'll regret it.

Comment:
Final exam questions from the Professional Engineering Exam. Second final exam required to attempt an A. Virtually no partial credit: Exponential scale of point deductions. In-class ex's riddled with errors. "Well you guys can work through it and find the error", giving you no correct examples to learn from. Most D's were to keep his fail % down.

Comment:
Kaiser is not for everyone, but he is NOT a bad professor. He teaches strictly through application, with minimal theory. Theory light classes must be supplemented with reading the book and doing example HW. You will earn the grade you deserve if you put the time into the class required to fully understand things. You WILL learn though.

Comment:
His class is rather easy to pass no matter what anyone says. All you do is practice his test questions and you're done. However, that is all his class feels like. Since he goes over the material super fast (doing Test 3 material before Test 1 is done), I believe he would benefit greatly from filling some of the time with deeper explanations.

He is very smart, just a terrible teacher though. I think Kettering keeps him around so he can fail students after the refund date. Good guy, just very twisted. Sorry, very poor quality prof. Gives KU a bad rep.

Comment:
Avoid, His class is a game show. No theory is taught. He provides the cribs and you review them in class every day until the exam. The material isn't terrible but, the time constraints drop your grade. Take Palmer or Rust. His class is an expensive waste of time. He is one reason some student hate KU by the time they Graduate.
