This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Unless someone absolutely has to take this course, I would definitely recommend not taking it at Clemson. The course is too rushed at Clemson. Most students seem to consider the material in each section anywhere from relatively hard to very hard to understand. But what really makes this class so tough is that almost everyday each class will go through multiple sections of material. Also the class time allotted will prevent the professors from truly teaching the material. Instead the professors will just briefly talk about things while the students write notes. Where you learn the material will almost always be outside of class doing the homework with a group of people. Because the homework is so tough and students can not truly learn the material inside of the classroom, most students seem to work in groups to do the homework.
Course highlights:
After finishing this course, I learned many different ways to solve integrals. There are many integrals I can look at and solve in my head now.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
If the option is available to you, I would take this course at a high school that offers an AP equivalent or at a college that does not rush teaching the material. Four friends of mine who failed the class at Clemson decided to take the class at a community college near them over the summer. All four of my friends finished with A's and told me that it was a lot easier at the colleges they went to.

Hours per week:
3-5 hours

Go to class, those who do not will not pass.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Dr. Reba gave out a packet every class that outlined the topic of the day, as well as review sheets with important material. This was particularly helpful when it came time to organize and review notes before exams.
Course highlights:
I learned a lot about calculus in this course but I also developed my organizational and studying skills.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Don't put off studying until a week before the exam! do practice problems from each chapter you learn (good practice problems can be found on the course website in the 'skill set' document)
