"Clear grading criteria" "Skip class? You won't pass." "There for you"

He's one of the very few good teachers out there. He's there if you need help and is willing to go over the problems you need help on. He also makes sure to ask the class after every chapter if it was clear. He's also very organized and wasn't late when I was in his class. HIs homework isn't mandatory, but its helpful for you to memorize the stuff.

130 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

His lecture was okay, but his way of teaching was horrible. He gave us homework that has nothing to do and out of topic from what we took a note in class. Study your notes and some of your hw and you'll do fine on the quizzes. At the beginning of class there were 20+ people, but now there are 4 left. You have to bug him for help or you'll fail.

MATH 80 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

Easy to ask for help, answers ?'s w/o making you feel dumb. Straightforward, no surprises & organized. Took class in summer. Gives xcredit before exams that count toward exam. Drops lowest quiz, class/group assignments & final exam score replaces lowest exam. Hw pack due exam days. Grades fair & results are quick. Got an A but had to work for it.

He is a straight forward teacher. Just make sure you write down the notes on his lecture and practice the problems he gives you in your homework because he'll give something similar to that on his test/quiz. You have a quiz every week and a test every 2-3 weeks, but if you study the notes you take then you should get an A in his class.

I really like mr. shihabi. he's the type of teacher that gets straight to the point. he doesn't laugh giggle or play around. he teach you and go home. if your the type of person who loves to learn then take him. class is easy just do all the work. come in class pay attention and do the work, thats it!!

I wouldn't suggest for everybody to take Mr.Shibabi.He makes it seem like you are doing well and passing his class,but once you receive your grade it is far from what you expected.The final can either make or break you and if you are like 1 or 2 percent away from a C,he will not bump your grade up.He will give you the D.
