Very hard prof. Tests were super hard. There was no way to prepare for the quizzes or exams because all the problems were harder and different than the homework and he does not curve. Would not take another course from him.

Tough but fair, and an all around good instructor.

He gives good information during his lectures, but if you ask for clarification on a test he is vague and normally grades against you on it. Attendance is something he does not budge on if you have family issues. He also has a bad attitude. I would advise against taking his classes.

His lectures are great, he is brilliant and witty. His tests are very challenging -they are conceptually based, but the curve is generous enough that if you put the work in and have some math ability, you will do well. It is not an easy class by any means, but you will understand calculus when you get thru with it.

I took him for diff eq, multivariable and algebra 2. Me and all of my friends agree that J-Gow is the best teacher ever. Guy's a genius. He gives great lectures and is always cool at office hours. His tests are crazy hard though. But he's always been fair about grading in the end. If you want to slack off don't go to inver to begin with.

The bottomline in his class is that you understand the fundamental concepts very well. If you are the student who thinks math is all about mastering the problem solving techniques/rules, you will be in for a rude shock. He is very helpful and genuinely cares, but is not a math nanny or a math baby sitter.

Took his calculus class, and the class took a lot of work. The homework was not part of the tests. There was no way to prepare for tests. He doesn't care if you fail. My class started with 25 people and finished with 8 people. I took the class again with a different teacher and aced the same course. Don't take his class, you'll save time and money.

I don't know why my last comment that I posted last week is disappeared. I just said the truth about this mean teacher. Do I make a mistake or I cannot say the right thing about teacher here. I just want to say, he is really mean to students and don't want his student succeed. Do not take his class, otherwise you will regret to do that.

Did not like him at all! hes extremely bad at explaining things, which, last time i checked, is basically what teaching is! Cannot relate to his students at all when they are asking questions. Very boring class. hes very arrogant and does not want to help anyone out.

He is the worst teacher ever! On a test, if you do not turn it in before or at the time class gets out, he will take 10% off. For a quiz, if you missed the deadline (all the quizzes and homework is online) you cannot make it up. I had power issues and just missed the quiz by a few minutes and he didn't let me take it. He is down right mean.

Couldn't answer many of the classes'questions! Tests were very different and much more difficult than the homework. Most of our class failed, and he doesn't curve. He's ok at teaching, but it doesn't matter because the tests are SO hard! He's not the nicest guy to talk to/get help from and has this "air" about him. Assigns WAY too much homework.

Good luck on the tests, they are impossible and MUCH harder than the homework. Plus, he can just be plain rude and inconsiderate. Doesn't seem like he wants his students to succeed whatsoever. Assigns an unbearable amount of homework. Take a different professor.

Very strict on not letting you make up quizes or tests or homework for any reason. Half the people withdraw from his class by the end of the semester. With a class of 8 people you would think he would involve the students more in class instead of acting like he is teaching in a lecture hall. Not very helpful with explanations at all.

He is the worst teacher I have ever had. His explinations are not clear and doesn't take time to actually teach you the material. He acts as if you should already know everything he is doing. His tests are also very difficult not exactly what is in the book, you have to go beyond the material and if you can't do that then you will not pass.

I have a high aptitude in math, and he makes me confused on the subject. He does problems on the board, skips steps that he assumes you already understand, and then moves on. This class is not for those who struggle with math. Those who get math quickly, beware, he will make you second guess you abilities! AWFUL experience.

EXCELLENT CLASS! NOT FOR SLACKERS! If you want to be a pro at the subject he's perfect. You are expected to read ahead and will be quizzed on the material. Its the way I'd imagine grad school to be. But he is fun and very helpful. Highly recommended.
