    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This was a great class with good, challenging material. It's a requirement for some majors, so the class may be pretty packed, but that's more often than not only at first.

    Course highlights:

    The discussions were great. I learned more there than the actual lecture.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's a great class, but make sure you get the right professor for it. Also, don't be afraid to study your butt off. To this day I'm upset that I didn't take this course immediately after taking Calc 2.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it simply because Sergey is one of the most understanding individuals in the school, as are many of the math professors I've had. He truly wants for everyone to have an A in the course and will help you get as close to that as possible, despite what the assignments will have you believe.

    Course highlights:

    I'm still taking it, so I'll reserve making comments on highlights.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    GO TO LECTURE. GO TO DISCUSSION. TAKE NOTES, THEN COMPARE WITH THE POSTED NOTES, BOOK, AND OTHER ONLINE SOURCES (Khan Academy, etc.). I cannot stress enough that if Math does not come that naturally for you (Calc III was nearing my breaking point), then you should gather as much in your arsenal as you can.
