    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    I learned that profit is just a number and easy to calculate. The money is made up and the points don't matter.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This was a fast pace class that was only graded on test and quizzes. Dr. Schlemper felt on homework anyone could copy so it couldn't show if we the students truly knew the information. In the class we took 11 quizzes and the lowest one dropped which help the students know how good they needed to do on the rest of the quizzes.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite thing we learned was long hand division with factoring to find a slant (oblique) asymptote for a graph. Even though you could make a lot of simple airs this concept was the most fun.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If a student is considering this class they should be prepare to do the homework. Everything on the quizzes and tests were all covered in the homework. Neglecting the homework will definitely hurt your grade.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking this course with the instructor I have listed. If you enjoy math and are good at it this will be a breeze. However if you don't, you are still able to succeed if you put in the effort and time and communicate with the instructor openly with any questions or concerns. My instructor was awesome and worked with me as he knew I was putting all the effort I had.

    Course highlights:

    I've learned so much material from this course it's unreal. One definitely has a better understanding on how to use complex calculators. Also, I've learned how to breakdown word problems to understand what they are truly asking. You learn everything from factoring, fractions to solving polynomials and everything in between.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Work hard, and it shall lay off. Make sure to do the homework assignments as this is easy points. Also you will be given a study guide before each exam, I highly recommend that you complete this in order to get a feel of what will actually be on the test.
