Dan is the man! Seriously, if you have any doubts about who to take for analysis, take this man. Easily one of the best profs I've had at UCLA. He bends over backwards for his students, and is really amusing and engaging. He also sets clear expectations and gives you all the tools you need to succeed. The only thing he could do better is post lecture notes online. You really have to attend every class because of that.

The homework is a LOT of work every week. Prepare to sit there for several hours just staring at a blank page trying to think of a way to prove something. Or you know, go to office hours like I probably should have done more often. Discussion and office hours will save your life. Tests are challenging as well so study your butt off.

I have mixed opinions on Madrid Padilla. I felt his lectures were a bit slow but I guess better too slow than too fast. What irked me about his class was his exams. He would give a problem on the exam on material from the lecture right before the exam. It felt a bit weird because he would only really tell us the basic definitions of those concepts and thats about it. His homework schedule was very random as well. We had 6 homeworks total. He has a bit of an accent and I honestly found it hard to understand what he said sometimes. Also, his handwriting isn't amazing (but also isn't terrible!). With all that out of the way, he is one of the nicest professors I have had. He is VERY generous with grading. The medians for the two midterms were 19/25 and 21/25 and undetermined on the final. I scored a 22,21.5 and a 49/60 respectively. After calculating my final grade, I had a 87.3% so I should have gotten a B+ but I ended up with an A! Maybe the final exam had a very low average or something but regardless, I am very happy he curved so generously. He said he was not going to fail anyone and after discussing in the groupme, it seems like most people received A,A-,B+,B,B- My TA Robert Housden (Robbie) is one of my favourite TAs in the department. You can tell he cares about each student and really puts his all into it. His material was significantly easier than Raymond's (the other TAs) stuff. Raymond carried us for homework, essentially doing every problem during his office hours. Overall, I am quite happy with my experience with this course.

Good professor in my opinion. Would have him again for another class. He was very helpful, nice, and approachable in office hours. The class was mostly very difficult because real analysis is a very rigorous topic. As far as individual professors for this course go, I have heard of there existing (lol, a quantifier. math joke) worse professors for this course such that they give unreasonable homeworks. His homeworks were very reasonable yet challenging given the nature of the course. His two midterms (I'm writing this before the final) were doable but not necessarily easy. The questions just weren't what I predicted based on the the homeworks and course material but the questions would absolutely fall under the category of what you would consider fair game (so just be sure to study comprehensively as opposed to focusing on certain topics). The average for my class on the first midterm was actually very high, but he explained this was atypical as it was not as high last time he taught the course (a.k.a., my particular class was probably just smarter). I would not necessarily suggest taking him for lower division courses however; he is a very intelligent professor and his math skills manifest in his lectures to the extent that lower division students likely cannot keep up with him. Anyway, I really liked the course. Not a bad idea to take Manion.
