Attendance not mandatory but I highly suggest attending class. Quizzes are take home along. Test are easy if you study the notes and the test also have a take home portion. Recommend taking Arciniega for this course, he is also funny!

This developmental course was really easy for me to understand, although the professor has a strong accent and writes really unclear. The homework was easy to complete because it was all submitted through My Math Lab, and he made up reviews for our exams after we completed the first one.

Most everything is online and pretty easy. Funny guy (if you even decide to attend. You can probably pass with minimal attendance) however, barely helps you individually. Emails to him will go unanswered for days at a time and when he does finally respond it's likely he'll just have you meet him in his office. Easy class, but not very helpful guy.

I loath that I had to pay to take this course AND for mymathlab. No point in going to class. Hes super nice but super lazy. Use mymathlab for everything, hw,tests,even the final. Basically taking an online course. Encourages cheating. Bad teacher, easy class

He doesn't know how to explain math! His accent cannot be understand. in the syllabus he told us everything online expect the final (25%) He gave you two attempts for each test and unlimited time and you can save your answers and complete later. Finally he said the final will be online so you can get A while you are at home but without knowing Math

Funny guy, very easy going, and willing to help. Everything is online (awesome) but the final is not. Do not take him if math doesn't come easy to you. This is the first time I've taken Calc. and i will be retaking it next semester. However if you have been through the material I'd say go for it! super easy A if you know what you're doing.

Basically teaches directly from the book, but usually modifies examples slightly to promote a better understanding of the material. Grades VERY leniently. As long as you do all the homework, (take-home) quizzes, and know what you're doing on the exams, it would be very difficult to receive any grade other than an A.

Took Real Analysis I, took all the tests early, did the homework and the take-home quizzes, get an A. Simple as that. I read the earlier reviews and was surprised by what was said. Either he is another Armando Arciniega or a completely changed man. Subject is hard, not him

My class was mostly online and extremely easy. No limits on HW and that made the tests extra easy if you feel my drift... found a loophole in mymethlab ;)but he's a cool and funny teacher. most likely easiest calc 3 teacher at UTSA. I got an easy A with little effort... hopefully it doesnt f me in the a.

There are very few upper division math professors that are this good at teaching, but he is definately one of them. He goes through problems and tests are written (instead of multiple choice). He is great at explaining and should you be confused about something he will go into further explanation. Definately one of my favorite professors.

This professor is very easy going. He will let you make up work and his tests all have a take home part. If you take the time to understand the homework the quizzes are easy. He gives credit for at least trying the problem. He teaches like you would expect a math professor to teach, all chalk and little chat.

He is a very nice guy, but he is not a great teacher, and I think he's know it. His lectures are extremely fast paced and often confusing. To compensate, he grades his tests and quizzes very easily and will give you extra points on homework if you ask. It's not hard to make a good grade, but don't expect to learn much in his classes.

This guy is truely amazing... It was a really hard subject for me until I signed up for Arciniega's class and made a B. He's very understanding and allows makeup work as long as your not BSing. Work load is high so you cant stop going to class or not do the homework. Every part of his class is important!!! But its definitely worth the effort. =)

He's a great teacher! You do have to do your share of work but its a math class what do you expect? He does have quizzes every week but they're only 2 questions, Homework is every week. Tests aren't bad as long as you do homework. examples done in class help a lot also. Plus, easy grader on tests.

Goes over every section. The class gets easier as the semester progresses because he ends up with a lot of take home quizzes.

He's not a bad teacher like many say. You'll do well if you study;I got an A. If you don't understand something, you can go see him and he'll explain it to you. I did all the homework that was assigned...it wasn't tedious or anything. One of the downsides, however, is that he doesn't explain concepts so clearly; that really annoyed me though.

He is useless. Wanna know why? Everything he wrote in his lectures is exactly the same as the book. Offers nothing new to say except "The test will be on the date of..." The take-home final test was a nightmare for me. If you are really brilliant in math, take him...it's an easy A. Otherwise, go be strolling along. LOTS of HW, QUIZZES, and TESTS.

AWESOME professor!! Having transferred from a junior college to UTSA, I didn't know what to expect. This professor laid all my fears to rest - he's the BEST! Explains things in depth, uses examples (and variations) from the book to explain step-by-step, and the exams are identical to his reviews! I would definitely recommend!
