The tests and quizzes are not bad. Dr. T does a decent job of teaching a relatively dry subject. His final exam can be replaced by a report using differential equations. This is a good way to secure high marks in this subject with relatively little effort. (Besides, he will give feedback if the report is finished early.)

Nice guy, soft-spoken but very clear. Uses the book, tests are straight from the text, almost identical to practice tests. No bad surprises on tests, he gives a fair deal. Gives a lot of extra-credit, in-class and turn-in. Definitely recommend him.

Gives practice tests that are nearly identical to the actual tests. You get up to 5% extra credit if you go to all the lab sessions, didn't take attendance during lecture. Also gave an extra credit assignment worth 30% of the total points for the class! He just uses the book PowerPoint slides for lectures. Ignore the complicated jargon he uses.

A nice guy but his teaching style is extremely difficult to comprehend. He teaches straight from the book but somehow he turns easy concepts into complete jargon. He is quiet and has a thick accent that makes his lectures even more challenging. After the first few classes of complete confusion, I decided to stay at home and teach myself instead.

MAS4156 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

In Vector Calc he is a nightmare! He thinks we're grad students or something. He asks if we understand but we're so lost we can't even begin to tell him what we don't get. He is nice though, and willing to help you during office hours. We can't even study because nothing we're doing comes from the book. On the bright side, he's easy on the eyes.

Moderately hard class, extremely hard teacher. His exams are very difficult, they tend to go above and beyond even the book's problems sometimes. He expects a total mastery of the material far above what most teachers would ask of their students. Also, there is no drop exam. Do not take this professor unless you love math and want to be challenged.

Razvan does a great job job when explaining the concepts you have to learn. He does tend to teach with slightly different notations than those shown in the book and it is therefore necessary to read ahead and try to understand the concepts before going to class (Don't be lazy, you're in college). Highly recommend him.

When I had him it was his second semester teaching so he was not perfect. He went too fast through the material for my comfort but I managed to pass his class in the end. Be prepared to practice a lot because his exams are intense. He asks if you understand what he is teaching often so speak up when you're lost. FYI, do the study guides.

The class is pretty easy. He gives practice test and quizzes that are almost identical to the actual exams. You are allowed to use his set of notes on the exams, but he doesn't check...His teaching sucks, maybe its his notation but i just don't understand him at all. I just dont go to class.
