    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course, but only if you are fresh out of Trigonometry and/or Pre-calculus, like I was. Calculus is like a (very complicated) expansion of Trigonometry. This professor moves very fast with this course, so if you don't understand something at first, DO NOT WAIT to ask questions. He will move onto another topic and you'll be left behind and confused for the rest of the course. Try to understand everything taught to you and practice the topics taught each day until you have a complete understanding of them.

    Course highlights:

    From taking this course, I not only learned Calculus, but I also learned that math is not always going to be easygoing (for the math geeks out there!). I learned that I have to practice math at home to actually remember the material for the next class. I also learned that it is okay to ask questions. At first, I felt stupid asking a question. But after I finished asking the question, I was surprised to hear mumbled agreements from my classmates, who also had the same question. Be brave. This is your education.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class was tough, even for me (I was a math geek in my high school classes). Do not be afraid to ask questions, as it is your education. Put a few extra hours into studying, not only for tests, but to be prepared for the next class. This is a very fast-paced class and this is the way to keep up with it. The professor is good at what he does. He starts from a smaller, broader topic and expands it further and further. All you need to do is pay attention and keep up with him, and you will be surprised with what you will be able to keep up with. I know I was.

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to study a lot of succeed in this course. Also never miss class because it'll come back to haunt you
