If you enjoy a challenge, this class is for you. If not, run! This guy clearly knows his stuff but is unable to relay ideas effectively. Questions asked also dont get answered effectively. You must teach yourself everything. Not sure what up with this situation...

Carlos is the man, but only if you love math. He's super passionate, but also super tangential. You'll need to take the initiative to study without mandatory homework & google things as needed. IF YOU ARE UNWILLING TO USE THE INTERNET THIS CLASS WILL SUCK. Also be familiar with undergrad level probability beforehand. The prereqs should be heavier.

Intelligent guy but don't take his class unless you have too (postpone if you can). No clear notes goes off his mind to write unclear stuff, confuses himself, multiple choice tests (in math), no textbook. There is no difference between taking the class notes vs not as "they won't help you". I would give him a 0 but it's not an option...

This professor is the worst one I have ever met. From learning perspectives, he is not accessible outside classrooms. He never replies email for whatever reason. He doesnt want to help in his office hour. He leaves earlier before class ends. He does not grade homework. From grading perspective, there is no clear criteria. He gave whole class B+.

Comment:
He's a passionate, but terrible teacher. His notes are disorganized, leading him to make mistakes, be stuck at a proof/derivation, or use notations that are not properly introduced. The exam questions are insane as they often include new concepts. Do lots of extra self study, but this doesn't guarantee you'll still do well. Try to avoid this guy.

Love his passion but this man cannot teach. He gives multiple choice tests which is completely absurd for this level of mathematics and not to mention they're extremely hard. Don't bother taking notes, even though the tests are open notes your notes are of no use. Go home and teach yourself. Luckily you only need a grade of 30% to pass the class.

Brilliant for a nice guy, hard multiple-choice tests. Praying that he has a huge grade curve. Hope that the final can be done before I got to sleep on it. Worst professor I have ever had in my college experience. Hope to never go through it again. All in all, great guy, horrible professor.

if you want to understand what is being taught to you, avoid this professor at all costs. he does not try to explain any of the things he is teaching. He leaves before you can ask him any questions about the material. no homework, so there is no reinforcement of the material. ALSO do not buy the book listed by the school, he used a free online one.

multiple choice test that are way too hard. he speaks with such passion yet you still fall asleep. i went to every class and left early because your better off teaching your self. But there is no homework open book tests one test can be dropped and the final is impossible no matter what book you have

Seems brilliant and probably a very nice guy. However he has little or no instincts of how to teach or how people learn. Gets frustrated quickly when students don't understand the problem he has posed, and just gives the answer with little or no explanation. Avoid this guy like the plague.

The worst experience I ever had in my entire educational life. A warm,friendly man,but a godawful teacher,totally indifferent to his students' needs,his only desire was to yammer incomprehensibly to a captive audience. No one understood him, mainly because he was under the impression that is was fair to teach undergraduates graduate level material.

Worst professor I've ever had. Doesn't care about students, multiple choice but still insanely difficult tests. Being in class was a nightmare. Skip.
