This guy is really all about respect. He will be rude if you are. He will be nice if you are. He is super retentive about attendance. He genuinely cares about his students, and wants to see you succeed.

I hate the way he teaches. He goes off on random tangents (excuse the pun) and he take forever to grade. He tries, but he almost never answers the question actually asked. I dont recomend him at all.

Had him for Intro Linear Algebra. Lectures focused on method, then theory (wearisome but complete). Quizzes everyday, but plenty of notice/ review before. Instruction sometimes confusing, but very open to feedback. Strongly prefers students show early and stay till the end. Shortcomings aside, he bears Golden Teaching Attribute: he cares about you.

Nizar is a good teacher. He is really helpful and understanding if you forget to turn in a homework (he gives a lot of homework). He gives a quiz pretty much every class, but he lets you drop a lot of them. The quizzes and all the exams are easy, except the final. The final was terrible. The book is also very helpful

Nizar is a great teacher. I found his tests to be extremely difficult. He also assigns a great deal of homework, but I came out of his class knowing Cal A very well. He made a few mistakes grading my exams, but when asked to explain the problems he graded wrong, he would catch his mistake and correct it. Great professor for really learning calc.

Great professor. He gives clear guidelines on what tests will cover and grades fairly. Also, he was pretty laid back; being in his class was almost relaxing!

He does try to help, but is disorganized. Homework was assigned/collected at random. He would call out homework problems or bonus problems then forget which ones he assigned. The examples in class tended to be much easier than the test questions. Would have dropped if I didn't have a great PASS leader. Great teacher if you are good at calculus.

Best professor ever. Understood his lectures perfectly, even w/accent. made sure students understood. gave study sheets for exams, often exams recovered sections from prior exam. hw pulls up grade, thought he was too lenient on extending the deadline to those who were irresponsible. willing to answer any questions. funny and intelligent man

Took him for cal 1 and couldn't follow him after we got into the integration and summation material. The PASS tutor did a better job at explaining things than he did.

Really helpful guy. Nothing to out of the ordinary on his tests, and fair amount of homework for the course. I would take him again

If you can avoid taking Mr. Abudiab, do it, for the sake of actually learning the material. But if you have to take him, he isn't all that bad. Tests: told us to study odd problems, and half of 2nd and 3rd test were even problems. Says he grades tests by comparing "smart students" answers to the rest. Doesn't use answer key. Avoid if you can.

Mr. Abudiab is extremely helpful and willing to go over anything you don't understand or haven't looked at in years. Take notes and do the problems he says to do and you will be fine!

English is his second language which makes understanding him hard at times, but he tries harder to help you because of that. He is extremely helpful. Go to his office hours. The final was super easy but tests 2 and 3 were difficult. He gave me the best recommendation of my life. I'm still in contact with him.

He was a nice guy overall but he didn't explain things very well and his tests were nothing like the homework problems. Before finals pretty much more than half the class was failing and somehow we all ended up with at least a C. He does care that the students do well. I can't say I would recommend him for students that aren't experienced in math.

This professor is super intelligent, but does not always present the information in a way non math people understand. Over-all he is pretty good and he does try very hard to be a good teacher!

Mr. Abudiab is a great person and very approachable and helpful. However his tests were very hard, and most of the time looked nothing like the problems we covered in class. He also used a grading scale completely different from what was stated in the syllabus.

Very good at explaining the rules of calculus but no so much the applications. Workload is moderate but his tests can be very tedious if you haven't brushed up on your Algebra skills. If you haven't taken calculus before and don't mind studying a bit I highly recommend this professor.

It had been 8 years since I've taken math and this teacher was amazing. He makes sure you get the material before moving on to the next. He also gives as much points as possible if you talk to him about your test/quiz. Math does come easy to me but after not taking any classes for 8 years, I feel he did wonderful.

He's very nice, but the class is boring. Mine was at 8 a.m. so it was very hard to get myself to go. The class was pretty easy, I didn't pay attention and taught myself out of the book, but he screwed everyone over with the final. It was nothing like the other tests.
