    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class was really interesting, and not too difficult if you have a solid grip of 5B and do the homework. The professor gives pretty good lectures and the classwork forces you to pay attention. The material isn't super interesting, but it is more interesting than 5B by a huge margin. The professor is also VERY helpful as long as you approach him.

    Course highlights:

    The professor's helpfulness when approaching him was awesome. He's really good at tutoring one on one. He's also pretty good during lecture, especially when he gets heated. (He stood on a table once.) You also learn a lot--pretty much all of multivariate and vector calculus. The main thing I learned was how to think (and draw!) really well in three dimensions. There was a good mixed of applied problems in there too, so I didn't constantly feel like I was just slogging through sets.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO THE HOMEWORK. I could have easily gotten an A, but I chose not to do the homework, so I scraped by with a VERY low B that he basically gave to me out of the kindness of his heart. Don't reply on the kindness of your professor's heart. If you do the homework, the class is very tractable. If you don't, you'll be staring at the final for an hour wondering what in the world Green's Theorem is. Which is not recommended.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend if you are good at understanding Calculus well and have strong knowledge of the previous courses. If not, then find a different teacher that has been told to lecture clearly and thoroughly.

    Course highlights:

    Due to the fast paced lectures, I didn't learn as much as I should have. It was very demanding. You'll definitely get a good understanding of multivariable derivatives though and 3 D functions!

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to study almost every day and take note on every bit of information given in lectures as much as possible. Record lectures as well. This teacher will hint you on key points that could be on the exams. His exams are tough but you will pass if you truly understand his Calculus logic.
