Review #1 / Course: MATH 2057 / Instructor: MALISOFF M
This guy looks like a skinny wimp but he knows his stuff and communicates really well plus he's good at prepping students for the exams and the tests and quizzes aren't really very hard so overall I'd recommend him.

Review #2 / Course: MATH 2057 / Instructor: MALISOFF M
Multi-variable calculus is more interesting than single-variable in my opinion and having Malisoff around to teach helps. He's funny and a bit strange, but he curves his open book exams plus includes quizzes that are worth bonus points (first five quizzes count out of 10 or 12 given). His final exam is closed-book, but at least half of the problems are previous quizzes/test/homework problems. He can be a little demeaning if you don't understand the material or dare to ask questions, but his humor makes up for it.

Review #3 / Course: MATH 2057 / Instructor: JAVIER W
The material was okay...but this professor was CRAZY! 4 exams plus a final, no curve, no dropped grades, no graded homework. My first two test grades were 86, 104, then my next was around a 40. My average going into the final was a D and somehow i made an A (i think bc i went to class every day). Goodluck if you have him!

Review #4 / Course: MATH 2057 / Instructor: RUSSELL H
This woman was totally clueless. She kept messing things up on the board and she treated the class like dirt. She gets very defensive when you complain. I guess it's because she's really young and new to LSU. She speaks well but she doesn't say anything we can use because she has no clue how to break the problems down into individual steps. She tries to make things right by giving extra points but that's not going to help me learn. Someone should show her how to teach. Avoid this woman if you can because she'll make your life miserable.

Review #5 / Course: MATH 2057 / Instructor: MALISOFF M
Math 2057 is pretty brutal, I'd say in equivalence to cutting your own hand off with a dull knife. It's like any other calculus with straightforward formulas, except the abstract other stuff that comes along with it. If I hadn't had Malisoff, I wouldn't have gotten a B. He gives 3 open book exams during the semester, along with open book quizzes. He takes your first 5 quizzes out of 10, rather than your HIGHEST 5 which is a bit confusing and dumb. But overall, he's a nice dude. He is pretty strange looking and you'll see people snap pictures of him on phones but he is goofy and funny so it doesn't make the class too brutal. He is all over the place sometimes though so try to take good notes because the final is the only thing that isn't open book in the course. His final grading scale is RIDICULOUSLY curved though. If you have to take this brutal class, you won't learn much with Malisoff but you'll get the grade.
