I've used both gas and electric stoves, and in a perfect world, I'd have a gas cook top and an electric oven.
That being said, my new electric glass top stove is wonderful. It heats up and cools off very quickly, and the temps are very accurate.
However...I have cooked with a lot of apartment stoves, and I suggest you follow Uncle Bob's advice about getting an oven thermometer, and then just get to know your stove and what it will do.
If you can afford it, I'd suggest investing in an electric skillet. You can go to the discount store and get a real nice one for about $30. Get the big rectangular shaped one with a deep lid, and you can use it for anything from frying chicken to making pancakes, burgers, casseroles and more. And you always know what the exact cooking temperature is.
