    Their basis for that list was ratemyprofessors.com. So, yeah, that's not a real list.

    Re: List of Worst College Professors

    RateMyProfessors.com. is used seriously? I remember reading that in college and a prof would get 5 stars if she was easy on the eyes and a 1 star...well you get my point.

    Re: List of Worst College Professors

    I could see this based on my friends experiences in the engineering school.

    Re: List of Worst College Professors

    Does ISU have too many old fogies that grade tough or what is the theory?

    Noticed Des Moines U was rated much higher than ISU, UI, UNI.

    So it's a top 25 list of whiniest students?

    Re: List of Worst College Professors

    I've had some good profs and some bad profs. I feel that a person does poorly in a class and takes out their rage on ratemyprofessors.com

    I've stopped using the site for that reason and just ask friends who have taken the course or had the professor before. You'll get a much more sincere response

    Re: List of Worst College Professors

    Lots of engineering/tech schools on the list. I think that's probably a factor.

    Re: List of Worst College Professors

    yeah the list was stupid. Using RMP as your source is ridiculous....especially when, like the article pointed out, you have a high percentage of science and engineering schools on the list. Not exactly easy classes, so you'll have more students ********.

    Yep, Rensselaer was high on the list and it is supposedly a good engineering school.

    That being said, my son has had some truly awful ISU engineering profs. His Calc 3 prof was just terrible and he wrote a scathing review of him even though he got a good grade in the class. Luckily Calc 3 is much easier than Calc 2 according to him.

    Re: List of Worst College Professors

    I hated the one's that simply read from the book. Sometimes I would skip the class and spend that hour with the book for that class as that was a better use of my time.

    I never skipped as an undergrad, but I had one class I still regret attending. The prof started with "This textbook is written at a 7th grade level, so most of you will need to read it several times to understand it."

    I got it all in one reading. His lectures just covered the highlighted terms in the book. Attending that really wasn't worth much time.

    Re: List of Worst College Professors

    From the link:

    "It's notable that some of the universities that landed on the worst professor list are schools that specialize in science, technology and engineering, which are academically challenging."

    Like, yah!

    Whiny would be accurate. For instance, Calc is part of the Math department...
