The best math teacher. Very rushed pace. Exams are light. HW/online quizzes are purposely made killller. His philosophy is "you learn math by doing, not on tests." (he's right) HW/quizzes are insanely difficult and time consuming. I once spent 8 hours on one quiz. Usually spent 2 hours on hw. Though plenty of extra credit. Helpful teacher, however.

HW's and Quizzes are just a diversion to keep you from preparing for his exams. Stick to the free textbook and lecture notes, the rest is just a smoke screen, but it's mandatory..

The hybrid class meets once a week so if your not a quick learner don't take it cause Gentile goes through the sections pretty quick. Hw and quizzes are mandatory. The first exam is a lot easier than the second. Meanwhile, the final is hard (Good Luck). Calculus is not easy, be prepared to put in a lot of time and you will pass. Pro txtbk is free!

He's the worse... Attendance, Homework, and chapter quizzes are mandatory, even if you've passed all you can still fail. Also, He enjoys marveling the complexity of his exams (Beware!). Btw he doesn't curve, don't believe the hype.

Took him for hybrid summer session.It was 6 weeks, 2x/week , 2 exams, online HW & quizzes. Aced the class after failing it twice with 2 other professors. Rushed alot and didn't really like answering questions since we had very little time, but he still taught well. He's one of the few Calc professors at Hunter w/ good reviews for a reason. Take him

He is the best math prof in Hunter, no doubt about that. Prior to taking his class, I read the review over here and I was not disappointed. I had 5 hour gap between my class because I really wanted to take his class.Trust me, it was worth it. He is the first teacher I've ever met who tries to make you understand math & he has a great sense of humor

Being this the second time I took calc I can definitely say Gentile made all the difference.His way of breaking down complex topics and simplifying them really made things better. He cares about his students and is considerate.There are times where he might rush a bit and be unclear. I highly recommend him!

Definitely one of the hottest professors at Hunter, but that's not all. He is a wonderful professor who sincerely cares about the subject he teaches, and he takes the class very seriously. It is a difficult class, but he is always more than willing to help a student in need. I've never had a better teacher than him. His looks are a bonus! ;)

150 isn't that hard of a course, but if you are taking it at Hunter, hope that you registered for Gentile's section. He is passionate about the subject.U se the DMLC if you need help. Textbook is pretty useless, but you need the online homework code. Do all your homework. Tests are fair. If he's stressed though, be prepared to learn on your own.

He is one of the best math teachers I have ever had. He thoroughly goes through the chapters;even teaching you things you don't need to know just so you can benefit from it. He is very organized; follows the syllabus 100%. Before each exam, he gives a review sheet which looks similar to the test. Pay attention in class, do hw, and you will be fine.

He likes to make 3 points very evident throughout the semester: (A) He must speed through and cover the required material, so 1-2 questions tick him off (B) "Go to tutoring" (C) and he loves to refer to his reviews on here ... like cmon man, anwsering a few questions won't hurt vs shooing us off to tutoring

Prof Gentile made Precalculus a much better experience than I was expecting. He's very clear, helpful and organized, and always lets you know exactly what to expect. Come to class, do the homework, and you'll have no problems. I want to take him for Calculus too if I can get into his class.

AMAZING prof! Take notes, do homework! He curves, very lenient. At the beginning, I thought I would have gotten a B in the course, but I ended up getting an A (due to all the generous curves!) wooooo. Only bad thing is he can pick up speeed... and that will confuse you a bit.

He doesn't thoroughly explain the material and just expects you to know things beforehand. If you ask a question he gets mad. His humor sucks and I just didn't like him. He thinks he's funny but he's just boring. Utilize the problem sessions, the textbook, and tutoring labs if you want to pass. And do the homework.
