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.

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.

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.

He was awesome ! The class is quite easy if you focus and do your work. He makes everything easy to understand and give clear examples all the time. Loved his class <3

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
