Do NOT take his course over the summer. He crams multiple sections into each class and waits a week or better before giving a quiz on that material. He also teaches multiple sections the day of the quiz. You must have a proficiency in math in order to follow his lecture. Quizzes are outrageously difficult and you rarely have enough time to finish.

Had Nedel twice, once for 1150 (Precalc) and again for 1172 (Engineering Calc); and I can tell you he's wayyyy better in higher level mathematics than in lower level ones. Avoid if you can if you're a lower level Math student, but don't worry if you're taking 1151 or higher.

He is an extremely hard grader, he reads the stuff directly out of the book and doesn't go more in depth on it. The homework is nothing like the actual tests/quizzes, the problems are like nothing you've ever seen and there is no half credit and if you don't write your answer his way: yeah, you fail. Never take a class with him as the professor

I found this class very difficult but not because of the professor. Prof Nedel was very clear in his lectures and was very helpful when asked questions. Downsides-only points are: 6 quizzes and 3 tests+final and he doesn't give out practice quizzes or practice exams. The class is tough so you need a lot of study time!!

Only prof that taught Business Calc so I was forced to take him. Passed but wasn't easy. Grades tough, quizzes aren't worth much overall. Final worth 30% and exams fill the rest. Fail an exam and you're likely done for. Make sure you attend and don't miss anything, he has a zero tolerance makeup policy. Only about 7 students by the end of semester!

If you want to learn a lot from a math class, this is definitely one to take. This teacher is very informative, sometimes too much so. Every lecture is packed with new information. If you have a question don't hesitate to ask because sometimes he blazes right through all the material. If you study and ask questions, you are guaranteed at least a B.

Lectures are packed with material which is good in a way but it's usually a challenge to follow the whole 2 hours.

HORRIBLE! Lectures are recited verbatim from the text, homework is all even # problems, quizzes and exams are rough, very hard grader! He spends so much time reciting the theorems verbatim that there is little time for questions or explanation. more worried about you using the proper stanix than teaching the material!

His calculus class is fast paced and difficult so you have to pay attention and ask questions if you don't understand. Never had any problems outside of the course work. Needs to work on not standing in front of the things he writes on the board since they are the notes we need.

hard grader, if the answer is wrong, then all the points taken away, no half marks. very fast paced lectures, hard to keep up. out of order, gives quizes to something we learned a week ago. never reviews. study guides are very vague. makes u feel dumb for asking questions, no one really raised their hand. if you want a good grade, dont take him.

He's a math guy and he'll make you work hard. If you do, you will do well. He will challenge you on his tests. Be ready to practice the homework and prepare for quizes/tests properly. I can integrate and analyze geometry like a champ now!

He took attendance and there were "journals" that were due each week but that was basically it. Super easy class, just sit down shut up and appear to be listening. He even allowed everything to be turned in a week late.

Would not recommend Mr. Nedel. He seemed annoyed by questions asked, his notes followed the book exactly and he rarely expanded. One day he got upset at a student and threw chalk across the room and then walked out of the class after letting us know that the last day to drop was soon and we might as well as we're lazy and all going to fair anyway.
