Dr. Tian's lectures are very involved in that she has printed out notes but you must pay attention in order to fill out parts of these handouts.

Advice for students:
All the tests are taken online so be prepared for that. Also be sure to go over the homework and class notes that she posts online. Her tests are usually half conceptual and half problems so make sure you actually understand what is happening behind the math rather than just plug and chug equations.
