Calc 2 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A+
"Amazing lectures" "There for you" "Clear grading criteria"

He is the BEST Teacher I have Ever had in my Entire LIfe(In 12 years of studying). He must teach in Harvard Not GPC! Take him if you want to understand what is happening in math. Best explainer ever. So Smart! SO Hot! I had a lot of problems in calc one i high school. I was always sad that I don't get it. But Now I always leave the class Happy. He summed up everything. He reviews things in precal, cal 1 , algebra before start to teach something. tests are straight forward

He is not a hard teacher, just a very inexperienced one. He is very smart and knowledgeable, but lacks the skill to teach beginners. I would not suggest him for people who are unfamiliar with Trig.

MATH2432 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

While I probably failed this class, I will admit it was my own fault. The quizzes are directly from the homework and exams aren't more challenging than that. If you actually take some time to study and do the homework, you can pass the class. He does not round grades, which is his harshest aspect. Pay attention, go to lecture, and do your homework!

CALiibb Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I am an A student and had to withdraw from his class. He only goes over a few homework problems, and has no study guides. His tests are 10x harder than any of the homework problems. I am retaking calc2, and have a professor that shows how to do all the homework, which makes all the difference. I dont recommend taking him if you want a high grade.

MATH2431 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Puscas explains concepts so clearly, as long as you do your homework, you will get a good grade. He's very helpful outside of class if you need it. Also, you'll never uses the textbook in class, you just need it for the homework.

Puscas is NOT an easy teacher. However, if you're willing to try your best in his you wont just get good grades but you'll become a better student. Don't take him if you want an easy A, but do take him if you want to challenge yourself as a student.

MATH1113 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Mr. Puscas is an excellent teacher who clearly and thoroughly explains concepts. He is also very willing to provide extra help during his office hours. He may not be the most personable person, but he is friendly and an excellent math teacher. Asking questions is not a problem with him. It's not paying attention that he doesn't like.

Not an interesting class to take. Somehow tests are quite difficult. I know Summer is short. So, he teaches at the fast pace though. Memorization is required. If you missed something, then you are done on the test. (n)

calcu2432 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I took his class & attended all class sessions, and I ended up with a D, 68.8. I retook the class with Coty, I ended with an A, 98.7. I am an A student, but I don't know how I failed his class. I don't blame myself but the teacher. Teaching Calculus's level, Puscas lacks the ability. Even worse, he tried to make the tests hard that it should be.Bad

Not suggested. He doesn't care about the students. His tests are hell difficult. The tests' average are always low. He gets scared sometimes. If you want to bring your GPA down, then take him.

He is a nice teacher; he tries to help students and always push to do the homework. His tests are not easy at all; however, if you understand the concept of the chapter, then you would do good. I have got an A in the class.

CaL2431 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

What a heartless teacher. I needed only some fractions on the final grade, but this dude wouldn't round it. From the 1st day to the last day, he tested us on difficult questions. I did all the hw, but I still did poorly on the test b/c of the difficult questions. Literally, hard to get an A in the class b/c of the HEARTLESS Teacher.

Puscas is a good math teacher. He is very willing to help you and explains things well. He is not an easy professor at all but you will learn a lot. His quizzes are always problems taken from your homework. If you do all your homework and strive to understand the concepts, you will do well in this. Also there is always extra credit!
