This class was tough.
The course itself is incredibly challenging to begin with, then to top it off, the professor is terrible. He shows up to class unprepared, his tests are nothing like what he says they will be like, and he sadly misuses the time we have in class. Overall, i would really advise against taking this class with Dr. Baylis
This course is all about MATLAB ad Mathcad, both of which are hard in their own ways. In the long run, I do feel much better prepared to take on challenges that I will face in my major!

Advice for students:
If you have the very unfortunate luck of being stuck with this professor, definitely go to office hours, but suck up to him and his stupid research while you are there. Find a group that will be your ride or die, and then ride it all the way through with them (that is the only way myself and several other students passed).
