    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Calc II at Clemson is one of the hardest yet most rewarding class I have taken. It is harder than necessary and my professor in this class did not seem to understand how hard the class really was. Never take a bad grade in the class, dispute until you are proven wrong to your satisfaction. I would chose a different professor for this class. I enjoyed it though and felt like I got a full understanding of Calc II, which included sequences and series for some reason.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a full and through understanding of Calc II from taking this course. Do not take Calc II anywhere else if you are going to be in the College of ENGR and App. Sci. It is easy to go somewhere else to take this course, and, even though it is hard, you are doing no favors to yourself by taking it somewhere else. You have to rough it out and do the best you can. Because you are going to Clemson to get a top notch education, do not skimp because it is hard.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    To study for this class do the homework, take old exams, do all practice problems, go to study sessions, and if you need help do not wait to get it. You have to be on board the proverbial train when it leaves the station for this class, because you will have a hard time catching up. I would also recommend that you see which professors are best for this subject, professors are very important for this class.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is very rigorous, but it is definitely worth taking. If you can manage this course, you can take on any course!

    Course highlights:

    A lot of the material in this course should be review for anyone who has taken the first semester of calculus. Sequences and series can be very tough to get a handle on at first, but if you sit down and work through the problems and practice every day, you will be able to handle it. Derivatives are mostly first semester calculus problems, but you should still practice them because occasionally you will have to do a derivative. Antiderivatives are much more common in this course, but as I said, sequences and series are the bulk of the course and can be very difficult to learn. Professor Bentley is a great teacher and will work with you to be sure you understand the material before the test if you ask him for help.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    STUDYING IS EVERYTHING. The Supplemental Instruction (SI) classes are very helpful. Ask the professor for help if you don't understand the material.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a Calculus course that most Math and Science Majors have to take.

    Course highlights:

    This is a very interesting and intense course. I learned how to effectively study during this course. The biggest highlight is finishing. Nothing feels better than being able to say that you've passed the most failed class at Clemson University!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The biggest tip is to get help as soon as you feel there's a problem. DO NOT WAIT!
