 so after i got into this guy's class i heard most ppl disliked him.. too late for me. i failed my first test because i thought it'd be very easy; but once i realized i needed to study (a li'l time goes a long way in this class) i got As on the next three tests (inc. final). this was enough to get me an A in the class. (granted i spent a fair amount of time learning on my own from the book.) dangello frequently labeled students as "mental midgets", (usually as an entire group) and made frequent references to downing 6 packs while correcting tests and his "vodka fountain" (more well known as a water fountain), but he assures you that the dean has already spoken to him on several occasions so it's not worth your time to bring it to his attention. basically if you don't mind studying a li'l in this class you'll do alright, just make sure to start studying for the tests in advance as those are your only opportunities to gather points.
p.s. every true/false question (15-20 of them throughout the tests) were all false. after the second test he scolded students for answering any "true" as they should have picked up on it after the first test. haha... oh and he took off the first day of buck season.

 Dangello may get a bad rap but it's just because he tells it like it is. I think he is a brilliant man and his teaching style is different but not impossible. Take him if you want to learn and don't be intimidated by him! That is my advice :)

 13 of 39 students found this review helpful.

 He's looking for attention by making fun of women, and I had a girl in my class to who gave him a hard time right back. It made class more enjoyable and the girls in the class relaxed a little more. All in all, it was a fun class. You get out 15 minutes early every day and the tests were not as hard as people make them out to be. I recommend him...... Sometimes I would be taking notes and look up only to see that D'Angello had vanished from class. This was usually because he was checking the hallways for other professors before he would tell a really offensive jokes. And they were funny, you have to admit. If you don''t have a sense of humor, go take Nordai.

 Really easy classes, all the same. Walk in, go over any questions from homework, start new section. Really funny guy, he will make you laugh every class. He doesn't take attendance, and his tests are always about 8 questions, all fair and related to homework and examples. Highly recommended, I don't know what everyone else is talking about.

 He is really not as bad as everyone makes him out to be. I thought he was pretty amusing. Yes, he does make fun of people, acts like a hard ass, belittles women and certain majors, but he does it all in good fun. The class was not very hard at all. The exams were very fair and predictable. He also is very helpful if you actually go to his office hours. Plus, who has any complaints for a prof who ALWAYS lets you out 15v minutes early. The hardest thing students have to get over is his mannerisms and sense of humor. If you are easily offended, forget about him. At heart, D'Angello is a good guy.

 The main problem with him is he expects you to already know the material. He only "teaches" it for about 10-20 minutes then gives homework. He begins every class by saying "Any Questions?" and you ask if you don't understand the homework. He goes over it but doesn't really explain much. If you're forced to take him expect to see the tutor a lot. She is of much more help then he is.

 Dangello is the worst professor at Ship. He is an obnoxious, sexist townie who does not know how to teach. I went to class every day and paid attention and still did not know what he was talking about. Then he books it out of the room as soon as class is done so you can't even ask him questions. Overall, he is just an ignorant and horrible [] professor.

 Teachers are supposed to give knowledge and information to people, that they don't already have. Unless you already know everything about applied calculus before the class, you might as well just forget about passing because he doesn't teach ANYTHING!

 DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS NO MATTER WHAT!!! He doesn't know how to teach and half the time i'm not sure if he knows how to do the problems. It's impossible to get help outside of class because he thinks everyone is stupid and no one else can help because he does everything his own wierd way. [] He is constantly making fun of the girls in the class. I still don't know how i passed this class--he just gave out some passing grades b/c just about everyone failed. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED

Subject: He only cares about beer  (Nov 12 2003, 09:56PM)
Student: Anonymous ()
Class:N/A (--)
 13 of 38 students found this review helpful.

 Dangello was the worst professor I have had so far. Most of the time someone would ask a question he would act like they were stupid for not understanding how to do the problem. He always tried to explain the problems in the fastest way possible so he could go drink beer, and the way he treated people like they were stupid didn't help anyone speak up to ask questions. If you want a professor that will actually try to help you rather than telling those who fail the test to go work at Walmart then don't pick this d*ckhead, because he doesn't give a shit whether you pass or fail, all he cares about is a paycheck to go get more beer and going hunting!

 Does not have the time of day for question in class and especially out of class. If you are good at math take him because you get out early. But if you are not good luck. Stay clear he thinks he is tough.

 His catch phrase has now changed from "Going once, going twice, three times for the slow people..." Other than that, nothings changed. Beware if you are majoring in anything besides Math and Business....you'll be the butt end of his jokes. Very sexist and opinionated. Subject material not too hard...but boring as all heck to sit thru.

 Prof. Dangello has no respect for the individual needs of his students. He opts to talk about beer, wings, football, and hunting over mathematics many times. If you are serious about learning or need a course I would not recommend Dangello.

 He's not funny, he just thinks he is. He's sexist and rude. He picks on people if they try to answer and then makes fun of them if they're wrong. The one good thing is that you get out of class 15 min early every day. Tests suck. Avoid him, he's a d*ck.

 There isn't much else to say except this guy is pretty poor at teaching. He moves at a pretty quick pace and doesn't answer questions effectively. He does make fun of the girls alot, which is amusing, but frustrating for them. He just seems to teach for the hell of it, he doesn't care about the students.

 He is the absolute worst. 3 tests the whole year... if you screw up on one, thats it. I did poorly on the first exam and had to drop the class. He is kinda funny, but really annoying. A typical class with him is he walks in a few minutes late, doesnt say good-morning or anything, just "Any Questions?... Going once, Going twice... Going 3 times for the people who are asleep" Then he ends every sentance in "Right?" And then he just randomly walks out of class 15 minutes early without saying a word, and you just have to assume that class is over. He is the worst! DO NOT TAKE HIM!!!

 Dr. Dangello is the wosrt prof. ever, he doesn't care if you do good or bad. He runs out of the class before you can ask a question. He is very sexist towards the girls in the class. If you are a girl, do not take him. He also likes to pick on certain majors as being stupid such as Criminal Justice. This man teaches right out fo the book. You really don't need to go to class, I might have done better if I hadn't gone to class and just read the book. He also hates to be wrong so if you catch him marking something wrong on a test, forget it, he will not give you the points back even if you prove him wrong, I hated this man, no one take him!!!

 Dangello is not too hard a prof. His tests are short, fair, and are always related to the homework. If you are taking him beware...he likes to joke about how stupid women are and talks about beer a lot. I didn't really like him as a prof but if you keep up with the homework the class really isn't too bad.

 Professor Dangello is a nice person but his classes were boring as hell. Whenever he would do a problem he never made sure that the class was understanding everything he was doing. On the positive side though he was always in his office during office hours and is always willing to help anyone who asks for it.

 This professor is very hard. I learned absolutely nothing all semester. However, he gives a big curve. So even though you won't learn anything, it is possible to get a decent grade. He does have a good sense of humor, but I still try to avoid this professor if possible.

 Dr. Dangello's teaching method is not the best. However, if you can do the homework, you can pass the tests. Very reasonable tests and if you can accept his humor (mostly drunk jokes and busting on the girls). A good man though even though you don't get that impression.
