Professor Svetlana Oshkai Reviews

An essential course for anyone interested in engineering - though basically a repeat of Calculus 12 if you took it in high school. Svetlana's lectures were at a good pace and informative. She handwrote notes on the projector which is much better than skipping through slides.
Take this course seriously. Overconfidence from high school lead me to a poor grade. The textbook is shared for calculus 1 - 4 so it's worth buying a copy.

difficult but necessary for a csc degree.
Calculus is always difficult. Not sure if I'll end up applying it once I've graduated.
Prof. Oshkai is friendly and good at explanations. I think she does her best given the absurd difficulty of the course content.
This is statistically the most difficult calculus course. Spend as much time on it as is physically possible, 2-3 hours per day minimum.

Probably the hardest calc class out of Calc 1-4, this is mostly because the class is heavily theory based. Svetlana is not a good prof, I would try and avoid her if you can, there is lots of other Calc profs that are better. Nothing against her really she seems like a nice person, just is not very reasonable, her examples are not good, and sometimes her writing is hard to understand. Midterms were fair, final was brutal. Keeping up with the weekly homework is the best way to study.
Do lots of practice questions and try and get Trefor or Mohammed as a prof, or really anyone else.
