Pretty easy, overall.
The main reason I want to recommend this course to anyone who is eligible to take it is because Jeff was the best teacher I had at Umass my first semester, and maybe ever. He was a phenomenal teacher and really made his best effort to make sure that everyone understood what was going on in class. Although the class had close to 200 students in it, he was able to give it that "high school feel" and it really helped me in class.
Most of the material in class was information that was covered in my high level math courses in high school so most of the material was review, but Jeff still did an outstanding job of making everything clear in class.

Advice for students:
The most important thing a student can do in this class is to just pay attention in class and in discussion. The material is relatively easy, so if you pay attention in class, you should be perfectly fine.
