131 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A
"Tests are tough" "Participation matters" "Would take again"

I'm not terribly smart, and I had to take 131 three times before I finally passed and this is the man who helped me make it happen. His lectures are clear and simple and his reviews before the tests are extremely helpful and thorough. It was great, I totally recommend him.

Math 7a Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He is a very good teacher, his lecture is crystal clear and very thorough. He did give a lot of homework but it will help you on the test. Just write everything he writes on the board and you will be fine doing his hw. Go to his office hour and he will help you.

MATH5B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Underrated. He is a great professor (for 5B at least). He was organized, clear, and understanding and helpful if you were lost. He went a bit fast, but he was always willing to help in his office hours. He is intimidating at first, but as long as you're not lazy and you try your best, you should do fine.

MATH 5B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Great teacher! Very thorough. Some tests were really tough, but a lot of it came from the hw. If you work really hard, you will do well and enjoy his class.

MATH 5B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Yeganov loves 5B and often challenges students with hard problems not in the book.He seems cold upfront,but really he's a nice guy.He dislikes lazy students,but likes hard-workers,regardless of math skill.The key to doing well is to ask questions,go to all office hours.Never give up.After you survive you'll feel proud you made it through his class.

Got an A. This professor will give you a book from his class notes. Just review that and do the tough hw problems. Good professor. Knows what he is doing real good. But if your not good at math or dont study a lot or are lazy your really screwed. His tests are hard. But you should be ok. Take him if your a serious student and you'll get an A

Math 125 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I couldn't agree w/the other post.This professor is difficult.He moves extremely fast and assigns a lot of homework.Its clear his time is more important than yours.Nobody rarely spoke up b/c when they did,he would really explain it clearly.Make sure you grasp the 4step rule otherwise you will fail this class.Avoid him like the plague! He's that bad

first, I didt not like the way he taught.However, after one month, I like the way he taught. He explained every thing.That is how I learned every format . I miss him. I was confusing after I took him course because I thinked which professor should I choose next time. anyway, for me, he is professional. his test was hard.

Math 125 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

The tests are ridiculously challenging for a beginning algebra class. Had it not been for some previous experiences with college leveled algebraic equations, I would not have received an A. Watch out for infuriating exam questions such as using four steps or having points taken away for showing some extra work for the problems.

Math 7A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I am not very good at math and if you are like me, you shouldn't take this teacher. He likes to go off the book and come up with his own, "interesting questions". His tests are hard and he takes away points that dont need to be taken away. For example, I came up with the right answer but I added an extra step. He took away points for that.

math125 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This mans existance at pcc teaching is a crime! He always picks up his phone during lectures and refuses to help student go over priblems. And like every other person on this site states his homework assignments are completely different than his tests. This man is unbelievable

Math7A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He pretty much gives you free points on the test, when you participate, and for attendance. He's willing to go over things again if you don't understand them the first time or if you walk in late. His tests are based off of homework, which there is a lot of. If you're lazy, don't take the class. do the homework, get an A. it's that simple.

The only thing to get an A is do all the homework he assign. I took him last fall and got and F just because i didn't do any of them, i'm retaking this semester and it's actually an easy class if you focus in the lecture and study all the questions he mentioned. Took 4 of 5 tests and getting 95% average so far.

He is very clear if you are good at math, though perhaps not the best if you have difficulties following proofs or don't like math in general. Helpful during both class and office hours. Pulls all his test questions from the homework assignments. Very good for students willing to work.

For all you students like me, that may not be the best in math, but are looking to learn STAY away from yeganov. The students that passed the class knew what they were doing before they came. This man does not teach the class anything they didn't already know. If you hoping to learn, not even get a good grade, but learn. Not gonna happen here.

Math7B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

WARNING: I attended every class and did all my homework had a C going into final and got an F in the class. He said that he would curve the class, but he did not. He said that students with d's and c's would pass. that was not true. he shows up late, and rips students. He is an impatient man that gets confused easy. Don't waste your time!

I thought he's freaking hard, and I shall never get an A. While I scored almost full points on final,and he gave me an A although I didnt meet 90%.5 tests are fairly hard,final's easy as long as you do study.Less than 10 ppl left,1/3 get A.
