Comments on the course

Very high workload in the middle of the course, but the early/late content takes very little time to complete and understand

Comments on the course

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.

Comments on the professor

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.

Advice

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.

Comments on the course

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/

Comments on the professor

Professor was good, just very hard subject matter and information.

Tough. Just MyLab Math homework, but difficult content that you need to master

Comments on the professor

I had some other professor but switched to Chenflix in the first week. #1 way to take it.

Advice

Lots of practice, lots of studying, lots of wishing

Suggest a professor

Dr. Chen for sure made the best lectures, all available on demand and at your own pace. Hail Chen

Comments on the course

Not as hard as calc 2 but still a beast

Comments on the professor

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 :|

Advice

Study study study. Do lots of problems

Suggest a professor

Dr. Chen 100%
