Comment: one of those breadth courses that are harder than you think; quizzes/exams were difficult, but if you take it pass/no pass--it shouldn't be a big deal; subject is fun--you learn some cool stuff, but gsis of class acted like they didn't really care about the course; terry was good at teaching, but some concepts were simplified too much

Comment: He tries hard. And on the scale of teachers (other courses included) is very average. Just note: He's not bad. He's just fine.

Comment: One of the better physics professors at Berkeley. He knows what he's talking about and explains it well. Lenient on Mastering Physics. You do not lose points for fill in the blank questions if you answer correctly before all tries. His exams are difficult but not impossible. Mostly the difficulty comes from reading the directions, which are as long as an essay.

Comment: Exams were kind of difficult but fair, and Buehler was a really great lecturer. One of the better physics professors that teach the 8 series from what I can tell.

Comment: Extremely hard exams considering the exposure we get from masteringphysics/lecture. Also, tends to say a lot "you don't have to know this but..." and spends time on a certain topic that isn't necessary. It Is interesting but considering the shortness of time during summer session it isn't always the best idea. Terry is VERY helpful during office hours- highly recommend to go if you can.
