Math 120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A-

Coming to class was pointless as the professor basically read from the textbook and copied down the definitions and formulas he wanted you to know. He spent half the class going over HW, that can be taught to one's self. He is unsure of himself at times and takes a second to decide if he got the right answer. His grades are purely based on the test

MAT 241 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Very clear and organized professor; definitely knows his material. Grades are based entirely on exams. Though his two midterms are very fair, his lectures and coursework do little to prepare you for the heavily-weighted final, which is exceptionally difficult, and has caused students that had been doing well to either fail or fall into the C range.

Math 621 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Very helpful professor who goes over the materials very slowly. The questions from the textbook are related to quizzes and exams. The only thing is: You need to have some good understanding of how the textbook represents the materials in order to do well in the exams. Otherwise, this course may not be the one you wish to take.

MATH 142 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This prof will work you really hard,if you dare not to do your HW at least 3 hrs b4 each class- don even bother to come to class- u'll fail. He teaches more than u need (lil annoying: summer's short anyway, and the material is already hard). curves the tests a bit. overall if u work hard u'll b fine- read the book, ask questions- he always answers.

MATH 142 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Professor is very knowledgeable and willing to take the time to make sure you understand too. I must say he made calculus an enjoyable class, and I must admit that I always thought calculus is difficult. He explained integral calculus well. The material vas challenging, but the class was well organized. Best math teacher I had so far.

MAH1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr Ralescu is a good instructor. If pressed I would recommend him. He does have some problems, though. His main problem is that there is a disconnect between what he knows and what he has immersed himself in as opposed to what the students might know or not know. He frequently runs rough-shod through the material at times confusing some.
