Good teacher, wants students to succeed. Tests are hard, and making simple mistakes can result in a bad grade on a test. Practice the hw consistently

MTH-1002 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

His accent makes him hard to understand, teaches quickly, and does about 1 example per lecture if you're lucky. He is more worried about the concepts than actually doing the math which makes him much more difficult.

Great professor, does not make it easy though. You need to do LOTS of homework to do well in any math class, this is no exception. Expect to work hard, but that A feels real good.

MTH 2202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This is a very demanding course but not impossible by any means. If you don't understand something you MUST be proactive and get it cleared up before class continues. It is a not hard to get an A if you kept up with the work. Do problems (and the homework), watching him work problems in class will not get you an A. Most tests are homework problems

The most knowledgeable professor I have met. He makes sure you understand every concept in his course. You will learn in this class. Test are hard, but he wants you to know the work in every aspect. Definite choice for Math majors and people who love Math.

People complain that he's difficult but he's really one of the best math teachers I've ever had. Yes, the tests are not easy, but there's a curve at the end. Don't pay attention to what's on your paper when you get it back, just look at how you did in comparison to the class average and understand where you went wrong.

Wow. Hardest math class I've ever taken but I definitely learned the most. Unfortunately, his tests are structure such that you must be perfect to score well. Actually cares, but the class is probably far more difficult than it needs to be.

Everyone says he's hard but as long as you attend classes and do your assignments you'll be fine. He also curves at the end of the semester. His exams can be a little hard tho.

He is possibly one of the best instructor I ever had. He has a philosophy of "thoroughness" and "not mere familiarity" which is good except that it takes a lot more work outside of class to reach the level of thoroughness he expects.

Tenali is an amazing teacher if you really want to learn a subject. I took his Linear Algebra class for Graduates and found it to be among the best classes I ever took. His explanation are crystal clear and makes the understanding of any topic extremely easy. The subject is not an easy one but having Tenali as the instructor really helps.

Dr. Tenali answers questions before, during and after class And I assume during his office hours. He is very interested in helping the students succeed. The course is very well taught, exceeding my expectations so far.

I really enjoyed this professors class. you will never need to use a text book but, his test are way to hard and there is some how always a curve ball in there that causes the class to lose a lot of points. If you want to learn you will love his class but this class will NOT be easy at all. I'm grad I learned but did not like my finial grade

You never need the textbook because he instructs very well. He does not water-down the material. If you want to learn, take his course. If you want an easy A, then why are you at an institute of technology?

Had him for Linear Algebra for graduates. He is very clear and very helpful in and out of the classroom. I found that the questions he sets for exams are very logical and are easy if you study. He will not treat you like an idiot while he teaches. He enjoys teaching and expects his students to take an active interest in their learning.

The man is a genius and wants nothing more than for his students to learn. Provide students with study guides and past exams that have similar questions to upcoming exams. Extremely helpful if you actually ask. Don't blame him for teaching difficult subjects.
