Professor Michael Mcalpin Reviews
Prof: Michael Mcalpin / Spring 2021
Apr 20, 2021
Never Respond to emails. Takes forever to post grades (almost 2 months and we don't have grades for HW1). Does not prepare for lectures most of the time, and you can tell because he gets stuck on a slide trying to figure it out. Some student questions go unanswered because he adds texts to the slides that he does not know. Slow communicator. Often talks about other things not related to the topic. on hand. He does not explain much some topics. Many mistakes on the exams. Promises to do things and never does. Lack of integrity. He is not a teacher at all. Stay away. You will not learn much. Student could not decide whether to withdraw the class because they did not know their grades. He struggles with Zoom. I can't believe UCF still hires him. Read the Rate my professor website.
If you HAVE to take him, go to office hours, use the slides to know the topics and research and learn about them on your own. Record the lecture and watch it in 1.7x the speed (he speaks slowly). He gives some review problems but that is not enough to be prepared for the exams
