MAC1105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I really enjoyed this class. I took it online. As long as math comes fairly easy to you, I recommend taking Cifuentes online. Math is my favorite subject and I found it very easy to keep up and do good on the tests. You have to do 2 discussion board posts a week for mandatory attendance and tests are taken at campus once a week.

MAC2312 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She teaches at you and not to you. You either keep up or keep quiet. She doesn't like it when she has to stop to answer questions and will make you feel bad and stupid for doing so. She is very intimidating and unfriendly when asking for help during her office hours. I had to go to another professor for help.

mac1105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

If you are an artsy person, then why would you take it online? Doesn't make a lot of sense. Anyway, I took Ms. Cifuentes online too. I found her very helpful. I went to her office to ask questions, and she sat there very patiently and explained things in detail. Be prepared with real questions though, don't just expect her to give you everything.

MAC1105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I took Ms. Cifuentes for a summer A online MAC 1105. When I would go by her office in search of some advice or guidance, she never had anything to say. I needed a lot of aid, as I am a right brained, artsy person, and don't understand math. She wasn't sensitive or understanding at all! I spent the summer searching elsewhere for someone who could

I've had her for several calculus classes and she is always helpful and willing to help you understand. She will make you work for a good grade, but she isn't unreasonably harsh.

I took her class online and thought she was great. I would go by her office at various times, and she was always willing to help me. Take her, but be prepared that you have to learn in her class.

She never responded to emails and questions in the discussion board in time for it to help you at all with the class. You teach yourself the whole thing (maybe) and her reviews for tests are usually the night before between 10-11 PM!!

This was the 4th time taking college algebra, and the way she taught, the light finally came on and I was the top of my class. If you have trouble with math, take this class!!!

I took her online stats class. She was very helpful. Make sure you read her syllabus. She doesn't have much patience for those who don't. I think I'd lose mine for half the questions that are asked.

I had her online too. She was a good online teacher who was willing to help those that actually asked questions. Perhaps the other person here needed to read her syllabus!

I had Ms. Cifuentes for an online class, and although she may be a good teacher in the classroom, she's a poor online teacher. I pretty sure more than half the people that signed up for her online class dropped it.
