Comments on the course

I thought it was very well taught. It was essentially a review of high school Calculus but taught at a fast enough pace and with slightly harder questions so that it wasn't boring. Most of the course was very easy with a few hard problems every now and then. The final was made extremely difficult though.

Advice

Anyone who's taken basic high school calculus will do fine. That said, be sure to take the tests seriously as they can be challenging.

Comments on the course

Don't listen to the haters of this course, they are all just salty. Overall this was probably the one of the best run courses in term 1. The teaching team was great, and the exam style was quite good as well. Since you get either 0 or 1 for each question it really tests how complete your knowledge is instead of letting people bs free marks. If you made a calculation error or syntax error thats completely on you, since we are even allowed online calculators, in fact you can even input your raw answer into webwork(no external calculation needed). Syntax you should be completely used to, if you did the assignments(very well designed btw). Overall, it is just your standard difficult first year math course. Completely fair by all means in my humble opinion.

Advice

If this course is still online: they will generally ask more conceptual questions in the exam. So when you are preparing by doing other questions, make sure you not only get the correct answer(if not re-attempt the entire question from scratch until you get it), but you need to TRULY UNDERSTAND the overlying concepts. Understand, not memorize.
