Calculus 1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS, horrible accent even for me I'm hispanic, i has no any touch or sense of relation to the class, his reviews have nothing to do with the test, hi skips exercises and is alway hurry teaching, if you ask him something he will act like he didn't hear you. not recommended at all.

MGF 1107 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Heavy accent, sometimes hard to decipher, but VERY thorough. Sometimes will spend an entire class on one or two problems, explaining the same thing over and over. Never really talked to him, I just showed up, listened and left and I passed the class no problem. Attendance isn't mandatory but it helps to go and pay attention when you're there.

MAC2311 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Worst professor I haver ever had, doesn't give reviews, doesn't care about the students grades,any help,doesn't like to do all the exercise, and like to do very difficult tests. When you ask something he just say no I can't answer that. He explain the classes very quickly, even though I have taken summer classes this one is twice quickly.Bad accent

MGF 1107 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: C

Class was tough, but I somehow managed to pass the class, because of the curves he gives. Not the best professor, but not the worst. This coming from somebody that put minimal effort in the class. So you decide.

MAC1147 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He is a wonderful teacher. I always have had problems with mathematics, but professor taught me an important thing: how to study this subject. I did what he told me to do. I read the sections before doing the homework and I prepared a summary of what I learned. After that the rest was pretty easy. I got an A!

MGF1107 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Honestly anyone that complains about his class didnt try. His exams come straight from his reviews. He knows who goes to class, he knows me by name. He answers quest. and breaks everything down. I absolutely recommend him. Great teacher, great attitude. 15/50 kids attended class regularly(myself included) and hes definitely helping us pass.

MAC1140 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

The class itself is difficult because math is difficult but Presa does his best to get his students to understand the subject. He is very nice and always willing to help. I already took the class before and had to drop bec the professor was horrible. Presa is very clear and goes step by step through all his lessons. I really learned& recommend him

MGF 1107 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He's very nice and really does explain concepts thoroughly. If you are stuck on any problem he will help you through it. Attendance is not mandatory but if you want to have any chance of passing the class, you should go. It's a difficult subject but he does a great job of explaining everything. Only math class I've actually gotten a good grade on.

If you go to class, take notes, & be patient you'll be able to pass. HOWEVER, you get four tests, none of which are dropped, if you fail one then you're out of luck. Considering that my entire class this semester was angry (because we could barely understand him) I suggest take another teacher and save yourself a headache.

Pre-calc is difficult, but he is okay. His exams are hard and he does not curve or drop the lowest grade. Although he is nice and respectful, if you can find another professor, take them.

MAC 1140 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Do not take this professor. He does not make himself available to students at all. There are no curves despite the fact that everyone gets a terrible grade on his exams, and the review he puts up is almost never like the exam. Cant understand anything he says and has a childish teaching technique.

MAC2311 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He is very nice and respectful towards the students, although crazy about punctuality (don't come late). I DID NOT UNDERSTAND A SINGLE THING he explained, during the whole semester I spent 4 hours a day trying to do the homework or deciphering my notes. Exams are easy if you do the mathlab homework a thousand times.

He is a very caring teacher. Get on his good side, if he sees you are a CARING student he will CARE about you & your grade. I rarely went to class, followed the text-book to the T and did well in his class. He used some of the exact problems in his review on his test. STUDY THE BOOK & HIS NOTES!

MAD1100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Very hard class, the tests are very difficult and the review does not coincide with what's on the test. He is very knowledgeable though but difficult to understand and in math, if you dont know the concept might as well drop the class.

He follows the syllabus but is EXTREMELY difficult, provides test reviews the day before the test and then won't offer any help or advice other then "to keep going".

I've failed math every other year since sixth grade. But even I still managed to get an A in this class! Very helpful with office hours. Drops the lowest grade. And bases all of 3 tests and final from the reviews which he covers in class. DO IT HE'S AWESOME!

DO NOT TAKE. ITS NOT THAT THE CLASS ITSELF IS HARD, OR THAT IS A BAD TEACHER. HE PROBABLY IS A GOOD TEACHER BUT I WOULDNT KNOW BECAUSE HE IS INCOMPREHENSIBLE. HE'S ACCENT IS HEAVY AND VERY HARD TO UNDERSTAND. HE DOES EXPLAIN THINGS THOROUGHLY BUT IT IS VERY HARD TO KEEP UP WITH HIS MONOTONE VOICE...

This prof is great. A+ for him. He is very helpful, and is a true educator that wants students to learn, and pass. explanation are clear and to the point. I wish all prof gave you more exposure to knowledge the way he does. note that he explain in depth to you, but he covers for exams what is in the book only.
