Great Professor! and keeps class entertained. Class is 3 exams and percentage worth increases from first to last exam. Exams are exactly like the review test he gives before each exam. Doesn't check homework but definitely helps to do it. Attend class & take notes and you will do great. Got a A in the class and I didn't kill myself in studying.

Wouldn't say he's the best but he's better than a lot math teachers that I had. Unlike teahers who make you study bunch of gabages before a test & none of these gabages are on their tests, at least, his tests are taken right from his classroom notes/examples and review materials. He knows his stuff & I found his reviews very helpful before exams

No doubt, he's the best I just had him for both , Statistics and Calculus I. His examples and study guides are so good, I hardly had to do any homework or even open the book. He's easy to learn from and do well in his class

"Ready for math? Yes no maybe!" He's hilarious with the funniest jokes and stories, but would go off topic too often, and then complains about not having enough time. Excel project is easy, but takes a lot of time (a good 5 hours AT LEAST). Really interesting guy, I would recommend taking it because it was so easy, but he's not the best professor..

Rude, defensive, and always late to class. If you email him he doesn't reply at all. He knows his stuff, and gives great reviews before the tests but overall I wouldn't suggest taking a class with him.

I took his online Stats class. Thank god this wasnt my first time taking the couse because it was all on your own. He wasn't clear when I emailed him, and he was very unorganized with weekly updates and due dates. Brace yourselves.

I have never had a teacher I hate more than him. Late consistently, demeaning to students, interrupts questions with comments that have no relation to the actual question. People making reviews on here must have been teachers' pets or had no desire to really learn, for calculus at least. Don't torture yourself.

The online Statistics course was scary at first but it was alright toward the end . Look out for his statistics Excel project. It's not an easy project.

I just finished Calculus II. It was not that bad. This guy made it easy. I mean really easy.I just followed his notes on the board and focus on his study guide before the tests and I did well. The study guide was great. He got mad at time but he was a OK. Good professor!

Great teacher. The people who can't understand him are the same stupid people that talk during class and don't pay attention. Really nice guy, and great teacher!

His accent is ridiculous. It is hard to understand him & he hates repeating himself. He doesn't drop your lowest test grade. I found his class difficult and I found him to be overall mean

I found his classroom notes easy to follow. This guy teaches so well, I was able to follow his class room examples and his study guide before tests and still do well in the course without a book. He's alright , you can take him next semester

One of the easiest and nicest professors in RCC. He is comical. The 3 tests he gives are a mimic of the review sheet.

I found his study guides to be very helpful prior to a test. He made calculus looks and feel so easy.. I heard every one talks about how hard calculus is but professor Salvadon made it looks so easy..

"i'm no rookie, i've been teaching this for 20 years" he's okay in dealing w/ problem students, & he's good at slowing down when you ask, he's a really nice guy, but if he's in a mad mood he'll take it out on the class. only four tests that's what your grade is solely based on. should make sure he takes attendence daily though
