Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
It's one of the requirement if you are engineering major. Since the course is designed to combine both Linear Algebra and Differential Equations into one course, I would strongly recommend you to take it during the summer, for the sake of grade. Otherwise, I imagine it would be really enduring and heavy in the year.
Course highlights:
I learned a lot. Most of the stuff (if not all) were new to me. HOwever, due to time constraint, we only gently brushed off the basics in Linear Algebra and Differential Equations, so that you would be able to solve the simplest related problem.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
For whatever Math course at Berkeley, I would always advise others to do as many practice problems as possible. That's the only way to thrive here.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Serganova was not the most organized professor. However, the course material itself was engaging and challenging.
Course highlights:
I loved Linear Algebra! It was all very new to me at the time, and I think I learnt a lot.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Do all the homework, attend all lectures and discussions, and keep up with the material and readings.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Great introduction to Linear Algebra and Differential Equations
Course highlights:
Learning a large number of concepts in a short time
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
To organize their study sheets by new concepts and not new chapters
