Advice for students:
There are weekly short quizzes that are not easy. If you take this course, be sure to study thoroughly every week. Even though the quizzes seem small, they are a hefty part of the grade; doing well on them is just as important as doing well on the final. The course is packed with information, so procrastinating will be much tougher!
