Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
It is a great course for people interested in calculus and a good introduction for those considering to do a major/minor in mathematics, NOT a specialist. It is mostly for life science students giving a good introduction to basic calculus. Material is not very difficult to learn, unless you have not learnt any calculus previously.
Course highlights:
The course includes concepts such as limits and continuity, Differentiation, Applications of Differentiation (Maximum & minimum, optimization, related rates) and an introduction to anti-derivatives. This also includes concepts from logarithms, higher derivatives, exponential functions and trigonometric functions.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Practice, Practice and Practice! To an extent, weekly assigned problem sets (homework problems) can help, and should be done regularly to prevent loss of touch. However, if it has been 2-3 weeks since you have touched math and a mid term or final exam is nearing, do past tests and final exams. They really helped me. Do it and go over the solutions. Do a similar test to see if you have understood the solutions. There will be always an 8-mark written question which nearly everybody cannot do as well as the last few multiple choice questions. My advise is, make sure you have finished all the questions on the test and done them properly. Then, if you have time, attempt those challenging questions.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.

Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
It's a lot of high school review, one tip I have is to do lots of past midterms to get a sense of the questions that would be asked.
Course highlights:
Learned about derivatives, l'hopital's rule, etc.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
You should definitely do the problem sets and the past tests.
