"Tests are tough" "Get ready to read"

By far my WORST science instructor I have take. My class was hybrid. Online homework you can google the answers. Online quizzes are fill in the blank equations. Doesn't tell you what will be on the tests or final exam. Final exam was 65Q. Knew about 45 questions and the rest was insanely hard and even the A student said it was difficult.

"Tough Grader"

Its a hybrid class , so if you miss a quiz or an assignment it means there is no way to redo it again even if it was an emergency. please do not take this class and go for the regular class because the instructor feel lazy to let the student retake any assignment . I am taking another class of physics with different school(PHY111) and I am at A.

MAT 150 Taken for Credit:No Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

MAT 150 is considered a very tough class, regardless of the instructor. If you don't apply the study time prior and after class time, you WILL fail. Berisha was able to clarify on how to do the applications but if you can't keep up with his pace, then you most likely need to see a tutor. Overall, I enjoyed his class.

MAT 121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He has a real strong accent. When you go and ask him a question he just gives you a look and continues talking. He sometimes didn't even know how to solve the problem, we would correct him on it.

MAT121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Barely got through this class and my friend failed.Of course you need to take initiative and study on your own but let me say I have never seen so many students drop a class. Yes you study on your own, but if math is not a strong subject for you then you risk doing hours of homework just to scrape by with a passing grade.

the class was hybrid, (which I hated and caused me to fail). But Dr. Berisha was FANTASTIC. loved learning from him and I found him to be very helpful.

Only take this class if you're trying to fail. Very difficult teacher to actually learn anything from. Expects you to know what he knows.

MATH121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Extremely intelligent and knows his math.The doesn't take the time to actually teach you the math thoroughly and skips through most of the steps.He had a horrible habit of teaching a new lesson on Tuesday,then review for the quiz for the old lesson very briefly the following Thursday, teach a new lesson, and then give the quiz for the old lesson.

Math150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Yes he expects college students to do the work but he has no time to really teach you Algebra. Not worth the money or the time to learn from this man. If you do the homework you'll never know if you got it right. Very poor communicator

Nice guy, hard teacher for MAT150. If you are exceptional at math, you might enjoy his class. If you are not, you might want to look elsewhere. I was a straight A student until now and worked very hard for a C.

You need to be self motivated and disciplined to take a class with Berisha. He expects college students to put in an effort to learn material. It is annoying how he doesn't finish problems in class but you also need to do your homework if you expect to learn. I have had better math teachers but I have had far worse. You get what you give.

While in his MAT150 class, he wouldn't finish the examples on the board and told us to finish them at home, even though we were still learning them in class. The next day when the class had multiple questions for him he actually told us to quit asking so many questions and moved on to the next lesson.

MATH151 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Attendance is a must to keep up with the class, as is working problems from the textbook. He does not assign homework, students need to take the initiative to study on their own, we're grown-ups now. He did address textbook problem when asked about them during class. He understood his subject and was patient with students who missed class. OK!

He's an a pretty good teacher. he is very clear and nice. never gave any homework, its good if your self motivated unlike me who never studied. thats why im proubly going to get a C in this class. but it was my own fault. your grade is basically based on chapter test, so make sure you do well in those!

GREAT slow place very clear teacher. He has an accent you need to get used to at first but not too strong. He is VERY good at making sure you understand the material before proceeding farther. He does not give mandatory homework and the quizzes and tests aren't too hard. If you need a step by step understanding teacher get him.

MAT151 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This was one of the worst classes I have ever taken, I would highly reccomend looking elswhere. I dropped after about the seventh week. I am a straight a student and was pulling a 48% in this class. The class time is useless and the book is incomprehensible.
