This class was tough.
This class is very hard for the amount of time you get to take it. At DU, on the quarter system, all of the classes are completed in 10 weeks. This course is also challenging because you meet everyday, but only for 50 minutes. If you are good at math, however, this class should be easy. It is a lot of review in the beginning.
This class starts with Algebra 2 review, then moves in to pre-calc review, then into actual calculous. The instructor moves quickly and has trouble explaining things a different way if you aren't understanding the first time. However, she is very patient and willing to help in her office hours. The tests and exams are worth A LOT of points, so don't blow them off. Also, you have to take the gateway test until you pass, so practice the first time.

Advice for students:
The professor offers office hours and so the TA for the lab. Take those office hours. DU also has a math center open Sunday-Friday. Both of these are great resources. Make sure you show up to class, because Kelly gives easy in class points on days when lots of students don't come to class.
