    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Chances are, if you're thinking about taking it then you need it for your major. Therefore, I would recommend it, although I understand it will be a challenge. It basically takes everything you learned in Calculus I and goes more in depth in everything; although towards the end, depending on who you have, the professor may already start trying to prepare you for Calculus III and this can be pretty jarring. Overall, the material can take a while to absorb fully, but will be worthwhile if you are choosing to continue. I personally found it pretty tough, and consider myself lucky to have passed with a B.

    Course highlights:

    The most important thing I believe I learned, personally, is how important it is to go to review sessions and get help, as well as to pace yourself. Calculus II contains some pretty rigorous material that is difficult to learn in a day of class, especially one that's a 50-minute block. But topic-wise, I think the highlights were series tests, because that's something that was introduced from day one slowly all the way until the end of the semester, and was applicable for more than half of it.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed, you need to go to the review sessions and even do the assignments that seem to only count for small points because, believe me, they'll add up and can make or break you. Both tips saved my grade, and even after getting a D on every major test except the last, I pulled a B on the final to get a B in the class just in time after going to reviews and doing the necessary study guides leading up to it. Let me be an example, because you won't need the added stress of wondering how you're going to pass just because you're a terrible test-taker like myself. If you can explain solutions to other people you're on the right track, and always show your work in addition to going over past assignments/quizzes/tests to make sure you understand the material better than you did before.

    Course highlights:

    you learn everything you need for Calc III

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are taking this course do not expect to just show up and understand everything. The hardest work will take place outside of the class. STUDY

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor DeGraw may move rather quickly in his teachings but he also makes the content rather easy to understand and puts the content into simpler terms for the class.

    Course highlights:

    I had taken Calculus II in high school but it had been a while since I had reviewed the material so jumping back into it was tough but once we got the the material he had made it all click in the minds of the whole class. In this course you learn anti-derivatives, volumes of a rotated function, sequences and series, etc.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I would give to students considering this course is to make sure to ask questions during class, email the professor, and go to drop-in tutoring at least once a week.
