Queensborough is exceptionally experienced when it comes to teaching and building up basic skills. However, since most students' academic knowledge and skill vary, not everyone learns what they expect to in class. Professors spend much of the lecture time on a few specific topics in order to match the students' academic performances. Generally, professors move slow through material, waiting for confused students to ask questions. Therefore, many students are able to catch up or strengthen their academic skills at Queensborough. Unfortunately for students with excellent academic performance, the learning experience might be different because the lecture is never really in-depth or thorough.
