I decided to take this class thinking it was going to be easy but I was wrong. I found this class difficult. He does not provide a review sheet and his test aren't multiple choice. I had to withdraw because of family issues. If u aren't good in math and don't want to hurt your gpa don't take him.

One word. HORRIBLE. Got a B but WHAT A RUDE PROFESSOR!!!!! Took his online class, he would only reply to the emails he understood, his syllabus stated he would drop lowest, that never happened! I asked and he gave me a harsh response. This class is not easy, with him it will be worst! Stay away! Believe me!

If you do not want to hurt your GPA, do not take a class with this professor who is both unwilling and unable to help you learn let alone be successful in the course. The label professor is an undeserved endearment used to describe this professor.

I think he is ok. No review. Only homework. Tests straight from homework. Some questions on the test were not even in homework so you will miss out on those questions. I think he did this on purpose so no will make A. The only good thing about tests were that you have 3HOURS!!! That's Alot. Enjoy

To call him professor is an undeserved endearment. This man is the epitome of laziness and rudeness. He responds to emails very promptly but he might as well not respond because his answers are rude and unhelpful. He provides no valid notes, no explanation of points and his tests are hard. This class is not worth a dollar.

Worst math class I have ever taken! If you don?t have time to waste money, don?t choose him! He is a teacher who does not break things down. He expects for you to already know what he is doing and he also expects students to remember everything they have done in the past. In my opinion he is still learning himself!

Yells at you if you give him the wrong answer. Has trouble seeing but I guess he can't do anything about it. I took his class in the winter mini term and just sat their and paid attention. Don't answer questions unless you have a thick skin! Just do the packet stuff he gives you and some book problems and you should get at least a B.

When asked about hw he said to do all the odds cause there are answers in the back. Doesn't communicate with student, or curve nor drops any test. Learned nothing from him. Basically he got paid for not even teaching.

Shagroni was the only one offered for Calculus I during the winter mini session so I had no choice but to take him. He yells a lot and makes you feel retarded if you answer something wrong but overall its not that hard if you study his packets. If you get your feelings hurt then don't take him. Also, DON'T even think about cheating in his class!

Took Dr. Shagroni's Calc II class online. Also had him for Calc I, which was a marginally better experience. The content for the Calc II class consisted of a one page PDF which indicated only test dates and which chapter of the text each test covers. A good way to get the credit if you need it and either already know calc or can learn it yourself.
