Goes over material way too fast, introduces a new topic every class then quizzes you on it the very next class, never fully explains how to do the problem. Students just do the homework on their laptops during class and he explains only if you have a question which sucks when there are 150 students in class. Impossible to learn like this.

He's difficult to understand at times and gets a little impatient. Over all nice guy. I had to get a tutor and that helped a lot. Homeworks usually twice a week online. Quizzes on fridays, STUDY. If you go to class and put it work outside of class you will be fine. 3 tests. No midterm.

He's not as easy as everyone says. The key to passing is 1.) doing HW...or having someone else do it for you. MOST IMPORTANT >>2.) getting in good with Pui the TA. He will hook you up if ur not in good standing. Take my advice... youll thank me for it

Such an easy class. Sometimes he is hard to understand but other than that overall good.Plus he has TA's who are very helpful.

This is the best professors here at Oswego. The class uses laptops everyday, and focuses on excel. You need to pay attention but Naryan is willing to help at all expenses, go to office hours and he is extremely helpful. The TA's are key to this class, I signed up the first week and PUI has helped so much. If you need this class, take it with him

If you struggle in math I do not recommend taking this course online at all! It is a lot of work when taking other courses as well. There is long, multiple weekly homeworks assignments and the tests are all in excel, which isnt too bad but you have to explain how you get every answer. The TAs are great for this course. Take on campus if can.

Class was super easy. I treated it like an online course (never went to class). If you can do the assignments, it's a guaranteed A. Very exciting instructor, funny energetic guy. Would take him again.

TA's especially PUI is your key to doing well in class. Review sessions before test are crucial. tests are really what matters.

way too much HW online. every day hw and it's graded. the online hw is ridiculous and has to not only be entered in correctly or it's wrong but then you have to send all the work for that hw to him as a seperate grade TYPED. too much work when your taking a full class load.

Genuinely cares about students passing. Has homeworks assigned every night which are graded online. Bring laptop to every class. Pui helps a ton! Had a 96 in the class after a lot of hws and the first quiz, but then the first test i failed by a bit and it brought my grade to a 75. Hard to bring grades up after that.

Any one that talks bad about Professor Narayan is a complete idiot. He knows his stuff, just go to class and do your work. If you need help go to his TA Pui. You are going to need to go to class and do your work but it is not hard to get an A in this class. These herbs are just complete retards in math and have no concept of college level calc.

Professor Narayan is a very nice teacher but a very tough grader. His tests and quizzes tend to be on nothing you learn. He wants you to struggle so you will learn more. If it weren't for his TA Pui I would not have even been close to passing this class

He teaches one class a semester with roughly 150 students. I'm in the fall class of 09 that "had" 148 students to start. We as a class have lost over 50 students, thats over 1/3. Does that mean that 1/3 of the class is stupid? No, it just means he's not a good teacher. Set up tutoring right off the bat and and his TA's will help you pass this class

He's a good teacher. goes kind of fast, but he expects you to know the material. Just practice a lot by doing the problems over and over again. Tests are kind of tricky but he gives a lot of extra points to help you out. Bottom line, he's a good guy just study and know the material and you'll be fine

Very good instructor who cares about students. Gives allot of extra points to those not doing well, not much for those who are. Which is not entirely fair. People who put in MUCH less effort than I did get rewarded for it? Why did I work so hard to get an A?

He genuinely cares for his students and wants you to do well. Always will help you with problems. HW everyday and 50% of the time he extends it bc he assigns material that people have no clue to do. Tests are not too bad but can be graded incorrectly. For as boring as the class material is the guy makes it somewhat interesting.

Great guy. If you are confused with anything, simply see him during his office hours--he will answer any questions you have. I recommend him as a professor for this course.
