    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's a high level math course: you're going to have to actually use time and effort to pass.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    He was a very interesting teacher, very engaging in understand calculus 3 rather than just reading and doing problems straight from the book.

    Course highlights:

    We learned a little bit of everything in calculus 3 like vector fields, some partial differential equations and also triple integrals!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you do all the homework, make friends with at least 2-3 people to share how you did each problem. Also make sure you re-practice problems before the test.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Pertinent information for various calculations using real-world applications

    Course highlights:

    I loved that the instructor used a lot of real-world applications, rather than have us do random calculations without knowing how that information is applied.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Obtain sufficient understanding through every aspect of the course, as it is progressive. Don't fall behind.
