Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Although it's a little tough to get past her accent in the beginning, she is a wonderful and very committed professor. You can tell she's interested in our success, even though she can be blunt and brutally honest sometimes, if you have any questions at all she does her best to answer them. Her lectures are very easy to comprehend as well, because she does her best to not just ramble but to incorporate the class into the lesson and keep our attention. During every class as well she's sure to incorporate how a lesson can be applied to real life situations like how derivatives can be applied to manufacturing practices.
Like I said in the last section Professor Makarova was sure to tell us during every class how the lesson could pop up in our jobs later down the line. Something thats also nice about the class is that you have endless practice problems, so if you don't understand something you can keep doing it until you do. Finally, if anything intimidates you about being in a Calculus class get rid of those fears. As long as you make the effort you can better understand the material and how maybe things actually could be applied to almost any business position.

Advice for students:
You can't just float by in this class... You need to put in effort and, even though it can be tough at times, make yourself want to learn the material. It makes learning so much easier. Finally, Make sure you use all of the study material and look at it all carefully especially before the test because everything helps!
