Comment:
Professor Baruch is, hands down, the best math/economics professor I have ever had. He knows the material inside and out, he will explain everything in detail with examples if you ask. He always answers emails and is available during office hours. I can't speak highly enough of him, he is amazing. Definitely one of the best professors at Pace.

I took him for MAT144 and ECO380. Both courses are incredibly hard, but he is an amazing professor. He offers lots of office hours and is always quick to respond to any emails with questions. He's very knowledged in what he teaches. The work is a lot, but if you engage in class and take notes during reviews, you'll be fine.

Professor Baruch is the first math professor I really liked. He made the information easy to understand and really cares about his students. His economics statistics class is definitely one I'd recommend

Baruch rocks. One of the best professors at Pace. Really nice guy who cares about his students. He posts detailed notes for every lecture. He explains everything in great detail with exceptional clarity. You will really understand Stats thoroughly if you take him. Only problem is that his tests are too long and hard to finish on time.

Great teacher. He makes the most complicated calculations digestible. Still, you must attend, take precise notes, and listen to his lecture. His lectures are fast-paced, don't miss a class, and you will do good and learn a lot. He is always calm and caring. Also, he is accessible if you require some extra help.

Amazing professor. Lets you stop him if you don't understand and he goes back through the material carefully. He actually cares about whether or not you understand and makes his best effort to get the information across. Gives great lectures and note during them. The exams are based on the lectures, so show up and pay attention.

Prof Baruch was hands down my favorite math teacher. Econ Statistics is in no way an easy course but he really did try so so hard to get us all to understand. and in the end, we all absorbed the info super well. 10/10 would take again!

Professor Baruch is a wonderful teacher, I've learned so much and have gained more mathematical skills in 1 semester taking him then I have ever received in my life. He is very passionate about his lessons, but this is not an easy class if you do not pay attention, so be prepared to work hard.

He taught calc 2 better than how I learned it in high school! He gave us great application practice problems, and they were similar to the tests. And his lectures are easy to understand. I admired how he explained the theory behind concepts in calc 2 and differentials very well (which I feel many math teachers/professors don't do). Just go to class

Prof Baruch is the most knowledgable professor in statistics at Pace. He is super passionate about his job, and explains everything very well. There isn't much hw (6 assignments due online at the end of the semester), but the tests are very content heavy and difficult. As long as you listen in class, he will prepare you for everything you need.

Took his 240 and 234, and got A. To be honest, he is doing ok at teaching math but terrible at economics. His lectures are not organized and do not help for about half Econlab homework( for 234 only). Exams are not hard but you have to study for them.

Professor Baruch is one of the best professors that I have ever had at Pace University. He has a very unique personality and is very enthusiastic about the course material. As long as you attend class and do the practice exams/homework online, you'll have all the material you'll need for the exams. Definitely take this professor if you can!

The material is tough, I'm not gonna lie. But he is an excellent teacher. You have to pay attention in class, he does tend to go fast. His exams are identical to the practice exams. The math itself isn't hard, you just have to know when to use what equation/method and what it means. He can be very monotone and boring, but he's efficient.

Comment:
Baruch's lectures were very clear, and he gave great examples and review sheets. Go to the lectures b/c there's no textbook. He has a different personality, so it's sometimes hard to read him. If you participate a lot or sit in the front, he'll pick on you to answer q's (which is sometimes uncomfortable). I'm a math person, so this class was easy

Professor Baruch is easily one of the best professors I have encountered. He is brilliant, accessible, enthusiastic, and incredibly understanding of the fact his subject is difficult, and will work directly until you get it. He is frankly, awesome.

Baruch is one of the best, if not the best, professors at Pace. Any class you take with him is going to be interesting and useful. The material is rarely easy, but he finds a way to explain it to anybody, who works and asks the questions. His tests are tough, but reasonable when you study. His classes get full really fast, be aware of that.
