Ahhh Mr. Cardona, one of those teachers that made my junior year worth while. Well, To be honest, he does have a harsh attitude and also seems to have a thing where if you made one little mistake, the entire thing is wrong. It's kinda bull, but at the same time, he does get a little entertaining at times. He's either one of those teachers that you like or dislike, so really 50/50.

Honestly, some people are overexaggerating. However, if you do end up in a class he practically HATES, you might be screwed lol. He does have favorites, makes you waste a lot of paper and stuff. But, his quizzes are very easy, just pay attention to his lectures&you'll pass 95% guarenteed, and every new section is very repetitive so youll get into the vibe easily. His finals/tests are technically all the quizzes in the section combined so its quite ez, so if you just listen, youll pass w/ an A :)

It's stupid how he grades things. If you don't have the exact word, he'll mark you down. The source evaluations are stupid also. It's credit or no credit (no credit meaning 0) so if you miss one LITTLE detail, you have a zero. That'll make your grade plummet. Don't take him unless you want to fail for stupid reasons and not learn a single useful thing.

You arent going to learn much. He takes a lot of notes and rushes a lot. The ratings arnet even exaggerated. they are true. Don't believe? Go into his class. I dare you. Good luck in opposite of heaven He is always talking to other people (ex. ta , janitor, on phone) and uses his phone a lot even when he doesnt allow phones like WTH. You're hands will litterly ache and just hearing his voice or seeing his face will get u mad within a week or less. He doesnt know when enough is enough either.

Wasted my precious paper, will make your hands hurt, looks like a mouse, has favorites and makes it very clear who they are, etc. DO NOT TAKE HIM. You will regret it. His voice will irritate you after a while and he talks nonstop. Probably impossible to get an A unless you are a favorite. Useless quizzes and his class is very repetitive. Just do yourself a favor and don't let his name tarnish your beautiful schedule.

Good luck on his quizzes BECAUSE ITS SUPER ANNOYING and he's very nit picky and very specific about your answers EVEN THOUGH the questions aren't specific. I also hate how he acts supercilious towards us
