"Clear grading criteria" "Would take again" "Skip class? You won't pass."

Mr. Vicente used a program you download on your computer instead of using a textbook. The program consisted of practice problems that so happened to be the exact same type of problems on his tests with different numbers. It explained how to solve the problems step by step, so with a little effort you can't fail (math, by the way, is not my forte).

CIS 227 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

The class work itself was challenging. Often times, I find that I rubber ducked the problems I was having, but when I needed help, he would always respond in a timely manner and was very helpful. His Java classes were in my top 5 favorites.

CIS 227 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Spelling errors in his coursework, no book given so reading his classnotes was difficult, assignments were over the top difficult; I do not recommend this professor and will not take a class with him again. This is a fair warning to you!

MAT 122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He's a really smart guy. Sometimes he has trouble getting point across to the class, but to his defense Statistics is a tough subject to teach. Uses Excel often so if you don't know how to use excel, don't take him. If you're good with excel, it makes the class much easier.If you like to skip class, DON'T TAKE HIM..

MAT100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This is a hard class for people who don't know math at all. This is challenging. Take use of the free tutors. GO TO CLASS. Take a lot of notes. Hard to understand sometimes. DO NOT like the blended course. Talks quick and moves quick. All I can say is you're doomed if you're bad at math.

He was fair and would offer extra help to anyone-you had to go to class-do homework-listen and study-he prepared us well for the more challenging courses we would face at four year colleges-he did his job WELL!!

He knows his stuff-has a little trouble getting it across-you have to attend every class, listen, go for extra help, and study-that's what college is all about-he prepares students for the more challenging courses!!

Very poor communication skills, extremely hard test, sends out assignments with spelling errors, no attention to detail. I would stay away from Rafael if you care about GPA.

Mat122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I took this class online, the professor does not allow you to contact him by phone, and does not offer oncampus office hours. Contact is only allowed by email or skype. Course was confusing, professor was very unhelpful, contact via skype? what about students that don't have/use skype? I strongly advise NOT taking his classes!!!

If you are not comfortable with Excel, then do not take this class. This was blended and a lot of work was online. This is very fast paced for lecture. Nice guy, understanding and willing to take the time if you have further questions.

Stats01 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

A professor with an in depth knowledge of the subject. It was a blended class, most of the work was at home with follow up Q & A in class. Not an easy class, but if you do the work expected not just the required homework you'll do fine.

Out of 25+ students 3 passed in my class, I was one of them. Very tough teacher, very confusing methodology of teaching. Would consider taking a different teacher.

He is extremely good at explaining and making you understand the subject. He is, however, a little fast paced. Most the of the work is done at home. Class times are mostly lecture and questions in regards to homework. His tests can be overwhelming
