Quarter Taken: N/A Submitted Nov. 9, 2011 Grade Received: N/A

I took Klug for both 101 and 102, and he is my faculty adviser and an all around great person so my review may be biased.
101
He gives quizes every friday, but they are very similiar to homework problems, maybe a little bit harder, and you only get 10 to 15 minutes. I know that seems evil but they really do help you and he is a very nice grader. His tests are straight forward, maybe one curve ball but nothing evil or insane. Like I said he is very fair and grades nicely. I strongly recommend going to his office hours even if you do not have questions he is a great guy to hang out with.
For 102 he still gives quizes every friday. The material is a bit harder and you may feel lost because he teaches you to derive everything and does not use the formulas. After about third or fourth week you will understand it perfectly and really appreciate his approach to the problems. Again he is a fair grader. Warning to you do not use solutions manuals in this class, he warned both classes each quarter, I am not sure if he ever did anything about it but it really is in your best interest to do the hw yourself.

Klug is a great professor I strongly recommend you take him if you get a chance.

FOR 101/102
Klug is a good prof who takes the time during lecture to explain himself clearly and do good ex probs. He assigns way too much hw, but if you make the effort to go to office hrs, he'll work out entire probs with you. He really cares a lot about your understanding and isn't set out to fail anyone. He sometimes does extra credit and his exams are typically a lot like the hw/quizzes. You must submit work for EVERY hw prob to pass the class, though he post soluts you can copy later if you don't get it.
