Comment:
Searched to see if Dr. Takei was still teaching, so thought I would leave a rating. He is an excellent teacher, and I enjoyed the class a lot ( Spring, 2011). It was on the easy side for me as an engineering student, but I was interested in biomechanics and he was very knowledgeable. A good background in physics helps a lot with his class.

Dr. Takei knows his stuff, but makes you work for it. His tests are extremely tough. do not try to cram for these go over notes everyday. if you have a final after his try to reschedule it. I had a death in the family and he was very understanding, unlike another professor at the school. He is a good person and a very smart man he will challenge u.

Be ready to memorize everything. The book is useless. Smart prof but can't convey his message, impossible to get an A.

*Preface: I'm talking more about the class than the prof.* He's an ok guy. The class is Easy but completely a waste of time. 32% of grade is just showing up with four evenly weighted tests also. Uses ppts by book publisher and reads them to us for 2 1/2 hours (night class). Buy the book. Take this with a friend is my advice.

Comment:
Very hard grader yea, but will work with you to get extra points. People were getting double digit points for just seeing him. VERY SMART. He tries his best, which isn't always the best for the student. Would recommend him for anyone looking for a challenge, or really want to get into BioMechanics because he knows every aspect of it.

He grades tests like none other. You can miss tons of points for the smallest little errors. Nobody has gotten an A on his first exam in like 10 semesters or more. He is a very good teacher and shows tons of enthusiasm when he teaches, but he is pretty strict. I hope there is a curve!

Comment:
I would spend forever on his assignments, and I would get C's on them. I would go ask Takei if he could give me some insight as to how I could improve my work. All he said everytime was..I am an expert in the field. That's the grade it deserved. How do I improve with that kind of comment? Don't tak

What a waste of time! The tests were really hard and there weren't a lot of points in the class. I could have learned everything in that class in about 3 hours if he wasn't such a horrible teacher.

ALthought the class is hard, Dr. Takei makes it rewarding due to the fact that the knowledge given in the class may stay with you forever
