    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Guyeax is an amazing teacher. She gives you every bit of information that you could possibly need, and every resource to help you. She loves to answer questions, and helps you really understand the information.

    Course highlights:

    She records her lectures so you can go back to review them. She has notes that guide you through the lecture. She gives real world examples of when you would use the material that you are learning, and gives you plenty of opportunities to ask questions.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you stay caught up, attend all of the lectures and don't be afraid to ask questions! Always do your homework in the math tutoring lab so you can get your questions answered right away.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    For any math or science class do the practice problems in the book.

    Course highlights:

    This class really helped to prepare me for my college life experience. It taught to learn and plan out my study schedule and what was needed to be on top of assignments and quizzes.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make a study plan as soon as you get your syllabus. Plan out the rest of the semester, so you stay on top of all your assignments. I always tried to complete everything two weeks before an exam, so I could just use those two weeks as study time.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking this class only because it is required for most of the majors at Utah State University. This is quite a time consuming class however so if you don't absolutely have to take this class I would not.

    Course highlights:

    I certainly learned a lot more about math, but more importantly I learned how to manage my time wisely because of the large assignments. I also developed my study skills significantly through this class since there were no reviews provided for the tests, so I had to learn how to pay attention to how well I was learning certain topics and make sure to review sketchy parts of my learning by myself.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You absolutely need the textbook as well as a graphing calculator. I would make sure to study not only right before each test but throughout the week leading up to them so you don't run out of time and miss reviewing certain important topics. Definitely don't procrastinate doing your homework, do it the day you are assigned the homework otherwise you will be quickly left in the dust.
