Comment:
Prof. Viglino was overall a really nice guy and always offered help. However, his teaching methods were beyond confusing and never fully explained how he was getting the answers to his provided examples. He offers office hours but it honestly just makes what you were asking about more confusing. If you are not the best at math go to another prof.

If you have any other options, do not take him. He's a lot older so he tends to forget a lot of things, like adding students to the email listing. I never once received any updates and was unable to participate during class times. Complete waste of my time. He's nice but that's not enough to warrant the forgetfulness.

This professor is definitely not the move, quizzes every class and can mess up grading your quizzes. Avoid him if you can, but if you can't study study study

The only positive part about Viglino is that his quizzes contain problems directly from the homework, but there is a quiz every single class. He is older so he makes countless mistakes while grading, so make sure you look over your tests carefully once he gives them back to you. Will mark correct answers wrong so make sure to point out his errors.

Comment:
He's a very nice man, but should not be teaching. Math has always been my strong suit, but he completely confused me. He made so many mistakes throughout class that I ended up changing my correct answers all too often. There are no other options for MAT101, so I would recommend going to tutoring a lot. He really is very nice, but frustrating.

Makes dozens of mistakes during class on problems he expects u to know how to do, students will end up correcting him or he won't be able to figure it out. If u get the right answer but didn't do it his method he will take points off. Probably the worst professor I have ever taken. Only take if u can teach yourself or are naturally good at math!

This class was a mess and everyone was confused all semester. His problem is that he makes mistakes when explaining on the board and if we dont catch the mistake then he doesnt notice. Theres a quiz every day and hell take off 20 if you forget the negative sign. Also,he grades his exams wrong and will take points off for things that are right.

Very confusing, skips steps in his head which makes you even more confused. I took precalc in high school and it was cake. With him it just seems impossible unless i look at YouTube videos explaining the material to me. Plus the whole class is confused. Take a different professor if math is not your strong point.

Although Professor Viglino is a somewhat strict grader, his lectures are very educational and comprehensible. Yes, sometimes he makes mistakes, but that's just an uncontrollable/inevitable memory problem he has. Besides that, he's a great professor.

Viglino gets a bad reputation, but he really does care. The thing is, you can't just attend lecture and expect an A. Go to tutoring every week. Go to his office hours. Study!! After exams, go to his office to go over the exam & he may raise your grade. If you get an A on the final, you get an A in the class. Work hard and he will notice!!

His tests are very hard and hw is confusing since he wrote the textbook which lacks clear explanations. I got help from an outside tutor with a PHD in math who said the material was overly confusing. Unless you're confident in your abilities, you should avoid him. I gave him the benefit of the doubt and I regret it. Nice guy, terrible teacher

Seems like a genius, and knows a lot about the subject, but in his own head. Seems to be getting up there in years, and has trouble communicating his thoughts. He constantly messes up, and gives confusing explainations. He also wrote the textbook, so there's no outside clarification on the chapters. Will never take again

Calculus is not easy, but I found that the way he goes slowly and explains what he is doing helped me to learn. If you work along and ask questions, you will find he is a forgiving and helpful teacher. The other reviewers are probably disgruntled because Ramapo students do not work hard, because he is a good teacher of a difficult subject.

Professor Viglino is adorable and a very nice person but not the greatest professor. I took this class in high school so it was not terribly difficult for me, but listening to him definitely confused me more. He messes up when explaining problems so there is no point in watching him teach. Attendance is not mandatory but there is a quiz each class.

Honestly I loved Viglino. Although he is slightly confusing sometimes he's more than willing to give you back points on tests once you go over it with him. He's such a nice man just show up and do you're homework and you will do fine.

Let me start with, do not take him. He is unclear and not helpful. I felt as though I was wasting my time and money as the whole class did not perfom well on exams. He did not teach us what we needed to know and if we did not understand he did not explain. Please dont make the same mistake I did, take a different professor & save your GPA.

This class was incredibly frustrating for me. He is terrible at explaining problems and makes more than a few mistakes. He also wrote the textbook you use, and it has many errors causing confusion. The grading criteria is also extremely unclear. Take someone else to save yourself from months of confusion and your GPA.
