    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a good course with a very charasmatic and thoroughly engaged teacher. Everything goes at a reasonable pace and the professor makes sure you have the tools to succeed in the course from day one.

    Course highlights:

    The professors joking and nonchalant manner of teaching that took the edge off of the - at times - challenging material. The way the professor handles the course and material helps the student prepare for future more demanding classes as well.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared for a LOT of homework. Also be prepared for the professor to make a big deal about details... As in you need to write formulas and equations a certain way throughout the course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course is not too difficult however it depends on the teacher. He/she can make the course more difficult than it is.

    Course highlights:

    This course is generally further into trigonometry, however the only new concepts you will learn involves the new graphs you will need to understand before proceeding.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Consider what I had done this semester. I taught myself the lesson the teacher assigned before the day he would go over it. It did help me more than I thought it would.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Memorize your formulas! Cant say it enough! This will be essential to your success in both calculus in the future and any of your science classes.
