    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I found that this course was very beneficial to me both for learning math, and becoming a better overall student. Not having to study in high school caused me to be behind in college, and this class taught me several different study habits and techniques that work for me. You have to work hard to succeed in this class and it will teach you valuable lessons.

    Course highlights:

    I found that when I did not put effort in this class, it was very boring and felt like a waste of time because I was not learning much. Once I began to put forth more effort, I found that I learned a lot more and it may sound crazy, but I found the math fun... I believe math is a topic that is a matter of effort, and as long as you put enough of it in, many of these concepts will make sense.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Work hard, go to study sessions, go to the calculus tutors available to you, and study far in advance. Do not cram for math tests, as it rarely works out very well.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Although I can't really say I would "recommend" this course because it is required for those in any STEM field major. One thing you should realize is that this course is very heavily based on Algebra and Trig, if you are at all uncomfortable with them I would suggest taking a PACe course (online math courses) in order to review because I struggled with the course greatly due to this (had to do a repeat-delete). Also, the TAs teach the course and depending on the TA you pick you may or may not have an easier time in the class.

    Course highlights:

    You do learn a lot and the curriculum moves very fast. Right after taking an exam you're already prepping for the next one and the cycle of stress and fear ensues. Spend a lot of time in office hours and do EVERY worksheet they give you.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely study your material and get help early on. It's a tough course that you can easily fall behind on if you're the careful. The exams are extremely tricky and is like that on purpose in order to trick you.
