Professor Szeto is a nice, caring professor, but his lectures will not be helpful. He refers to textbook use, and skims very quickly through textbook sections, talking more about "why this matters" than "how this works." Make your own notes from the textbook, and do as many practices as possible, and you should be okay. Don't rely on the lectures.

He is good in making complicated math much simpler and explaining it, but he is a hard marker. He is a also a pretty nice and smart guy. Plus, the greatest thing about him is he tries really hard to teach and convey the message to you.

Hard class, Szeto will remind you regularly to drop if you can't do well. But it's not so bad. He drops your worst test score and curved a bit at the end. The class is almost directly out of the textbook so its a matter of preference how you like learning the material from him or the book. If you get a chance to speak to him hes pretty cool.

He has to be the worst math prof at york. Makes the online assignments so hard and the tests even harder. He'll teach you stuff that he'll never test you on. Lectures are waste, just does examples from the textbook that have already been explained in the book. If possible, avoid taking the class with this prof COMPLETELY. ~easy material, hard prof.

Professor Szeto's lectures aren't helpful; they're good for clarifying things. This means if you want to do good in the class, you have to read, take note of, and do as many practice problems pertaining to each section that is going to be examinable. His lectures are more about "why should you care" instead of "what this means." Tests are tricky.

He's a nice guy. Very approachable. You only get 45 minutes on tests, which includes some stuff you've never seen before. Allocating 10% of the test to a proof isn't a smart idea for an applied calculus test. Lectures are useless, he just reads the textbook. Take advantage of pass sessions - you'll need them!

You need to attend His classes on a daily basis to achieve what you want,certain questions require his approach, do all exercises in the text and finally approach him whenever u need help. He is the best Math Prof. Maurice say so

I wasn't thrilled. He was not very clear, and his notes were not that great at all. I found Google a lot more helpful. He is very helpful though, if you go and see him during office hours. Please avoid this class or take a substitute unless it is absolutely necessary.

Very boring lectures, I actually could not keep my eyes open. Easy tests but sometimes theres a hard question. People are so stupid so its easy to do well in the class. Very helpful outside of class. DONT go to lectures instead go to him during office hours.

i found his lectures dull and not helpful. i stopped and started attending tutorials rather. tutorials and webassign were so beneficial. you have to work fast during midterms though or you'll run out of time. and he talks a lot during tests which bugged me. overall he's actually not horrible. but i couldnt deal 3times a week..

Easy tests if you study the pretest outlines. He curves the final marks MORE than generously. He wants you to do well. The people saying his tests are difficult are just dumb. The ones who say he's not helpful never went to office hours. I saw him spend 10 minutes straight trying to explain the simplest concept to a girl. Good guy, generous marker.

I was in his Calculus 1 class. His classes/lectures were so boring but his tutorials are quite helpful, since there are less people. The BIGGEST PROBLEM with this prof is most of the marks in his tests are asking for you to explain the theory of every step that you do. I solved the questions, but still failed the test :(

He is a great professor. He explains concepts in a clear and neat way, saves you a lot of time on reading and understanding the textbook by yourself. Tests were easy if you've got a solid foundation in Gr.12 math.

Very helpful, course website was clean, neat and everything was easy to find. Samples were given before every quiz and the questions on the tests were similar to samples. His TAs knew him well, and they made a good team. He finished on time and left two sessions to do a review of the course. Very polite, good sense of humour, but a little demanding

He is a horrible professor who has no teaching skills what so ever. if you are in his class. it would be best to skip and just study from the textbook and the WEBASSIGN questions. In other words his class is a waste of your time!!

This professor is amazing. His tests are fair and easy...as long as you take your time practising the problems in the textbook you should be fine. He takes his test questions from the textbook problems. Exam was hard but i still ended up getting my A. Good prof, deserves better ratings than what hes getting.

I DON'T know how these people are saying this guy is bad. His tests are very fair and easy, I was a sceptic because of these comments going into his class but this man is really good and doesn't deserve these ratings. He gives easy tests, online assignments and explains the textbook perfectly. If you can get into uni u can pass his course. Simple..
