I did not think it was too difficult of a course. Much easier than calc 2. You just use the basics of calculus you learned in calc 1 and apply it to more dimensions
It was sometimes interesting. Drawing really helps
Mike was a pretty good prof. He was not a prof who just reads off a slide which I liked. He actually writes out notes on the board. His midterms were easy and he usually did almost identical problems during the review session before the exam. However, the final exam was absolutely brutal and wasn't really curved.
Do well on the exams and the weekly quizzes.

Very challenging, often felt like you weren’t prepared for exam problems even if you did ok on them. Ramped up in difficulty after starting off pretty easy on the first midterm.
Great professor but he’s in Canada now:(
Do the homework even if it’s optional, most quiz problems and some exam problems were almost exact copies of the homework. Stay on top of work early

Watch out for the final exam. It was brutal and nothing like the midterms/quizzes. It was also worth a large portion of our grade. Homework wasn't graded, but labs were. 6 midterms, 6 quizzes, 12 labs. Our lowest midterm and quiz scores were dropped. Our 3 lowest lab scores were dropped.
He just reads off his slides. That isn't what you want for a math class. Also, something about his voice made it hard to pay attention. It wasn't exactly monotone, but it was dull and not engaging at all.
Even though the homework isn't graded, do it. Some of the midterms/quizzes had similar problems with different values. Study well for the final.
Don't take Sherman.

Most of the course was easy but the final was nothing we had done before
