Make sure you have a solid understanding of algebra and trigonometry
This class was tough.

Understanding this math level is important in finance.
Course highlights:
The instructor made himself available to answer questions and clarify concepts. We learned how to work with derivatives which can be very complicated.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure you do all of the practice problems as many times as necessary. It makes taking the tests very easy. You have a limited amount of time and if you dont know what the question is asking, you wont know what to do with the formula sheet. Practice!
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This course, after taking 122A, really helped me strengthen my grasp on calculus. Before enrolling at the University of Arizona, I took Calculus 1 in my senior year of high school. It was the first C I had ever received in a class. After taking this class, I feel like I have control of the material in a useful way.
Course highlights:
Coming from a certified math nerd, my favorite thing about this class was the independence we were given. I felt as though I had access to a seemingly endless number of problems and exercises to help me understand the concepts. The lectures were always helpful and interesting, and the homework assignments always pertained to exactly what we were covering in class.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Be ready to work. You're going to have homework every night. You're going to have to study before tests. But when its all said and done, you will know the material like the back of your hand.
