Comment:
I've been to several schools, and by far this is one of the worst professors I've ever had. He admits to not knowing any of the derivates off hand but expects all the students to know what they're doing on tests without calculators and formula sheets. He is such a terrible teacher that he said the class did good when the average was a 46.

Lectures exactly what you need to know for the exams and gives great sample problems. He also reviews the past exams from last semester before each exam. Awesome guy and very willing to help. 100% recommend for stats.

Comment:
Be prepared to teach yourself in this class, he does not teach the topic at all. He will throw topics up on the board and expect you to remember them from when you were in high school. Make sure to have a friend take it before you and use their notes and old tests since he doesn't change the tests too much. Will never take this professor again.

Has to be one of the nicest professors I've met. He also has to be one of the worst lecturers I've met.

Comment:
Dr. Pryor is a great guy. He is also very intelligent, but he gets confused a lot in class. He grades on a curve, so it is almost impossible to fail his class. I highly recommend him. Compared to other Math professors at Wilkes, he is extremely laid back.

The homework is about as much fun as getting your teeth pulled out. Take the class when you have the time to do over 18 hours of homework a week. Oh wait your most likely an engineer and dont have that time in the first place.

Awful professor, homework was absolutely on another level of difficult compared to what was done in class, and he's no help at all if you go to him. For a required class for engineering he does nothing to try and actually make the material understandable.

Comment:
He would make mistakes when working on a problem and we would have to point them out to him. He also jumps around a lot. But he really provides examples to help us learn the material. Tests were pretty easy.

Comment:
Pryor is a really nice guy, but most of the time he makes mistakes in his work and just jumps right to the next step with out explaining why. And he relies on his students to help fix his errors and figure out problems he can't even though he came up with them. Not my recommendation.

Very nice guy, reasonable grader, he does so much to help students pass that to say he's anything less than awesome is a bald face lie. He breaks down the material well too, and he pits everything online which helps big time.

I don't know why many people don't like this guy; I've had MTH and CS courses with him, and I think he's a great guy. He even teaches you some things you'll never learn in another course. He grades fairly, he's interesting, and he's a nice guy who will help with any questions.

Comment:
Dr. Pryor is a nice pleasant person who means well. However, he is just awful at teaching Calculus. He relies heavily on his calculator to solve problems. It became evident after the first week that he had a problem of never finishing example problems on the board. Bottom line don't take his class. Sorry Dr. Pryor

Dont listen to the comments below. Pryor is a good guy, he moves a little fast but if you can add subtract multiple and divide at a college level, youll ace the tests. Just study and its easy, he also has a great grading system.
