Hard class, especially the second half. Chenflix and boilerexams are very useful.

Stopped going to actual lecture after the first class. ChenFlix all the way. First midterm was easy if you studied well, second all kinds of BS with questions nothing like what were on the practice exams. Final somewhere in between the two. If you reliably understand how to do the hardest questions on each homework assignment, then you'll probably do okay.

Honestly not too bad. our sem huge curve.
Very stupid u pay 70$ for book access on hw. Not very useful i would say, harder than typical calc 3 classes at universities. 2nd half is tricky.
Notes are clear
It is probably good idea to take in comm college over summer before freshman year. You can take more interesting courses faster

Overall, and compared to Calc 2, I found Calc 3 slightly more tolerable. The concepts, though conceptually challenging, felt more understandable than calc 2. Exams were just as hard however and would recommend a lot of studying beforehand.
I really like my professor. He was great at explaining three-dimensional concepts and would actually go over some of the things we needed in the homework.
Manage your time. I was doing pretty good earlier in the semester but towards April, I started letting things pile up. Just stay on top of your studying and make sure you understand each lesson before going on to the next one, they all build on each other.
Even though I didn't have him, Chen is one of the best if you can get him. Very clear lectures, but even if you don't get him you can still watch his recordings for clarification.

Course is horrible. You will have no idea what you're doing most of the time and you will bomb exams only for the curve to save your grade/
Professor was good, just very hard subject matter and information.
Course is structured well
Chen is an understanding professor not to mention a good one. You'll enjoy having him.
Do your work and attend lecture. All the resources are there for you
Very high workload in the middle of the course, but the early/late content takes very little time to complete and understand
Tough. Just MyLab Math homework, but difficult content that you need to master
I had some other professor but switched to Chenflix in the first week. #1 way to take it.
Lots of practice, lots of studying, lots of wishing
Dr. Chen for sure made the best lectures, all available on demand and at your own pace. Hail Chen

Not as hard as calc 2 but still a beast
Chen is well loved at Purdue. He certainly is better than any other professor I've had (though I've heard Kenji is amazing), but I wouldn't call him outstanding. His notes are detailed though and actually legible unlike most math professor's :|
Study study study. Do lots of problems
Dr. Chen 100%
