Holy smokes. The professor does try her best to help and is a pretty good lecturer. However, be warned that the homework takes 10-12+ hours for 6-8 problems total and the exams are brutal (final took me morning to evening). I took 110AH, 115AH, and 131AH, but this honestly was harder than them all because of how abstract or meticulous the problems I got. The class definitely makes your other upper-div math classes feel like a breeze afterwards though...good luck!

The homeworks are hard, which normally you would expect to spend a 5-6 hours weekly on homework. But the exams are generally easier than the homework.
According to the TA, Killip is the best professor to take to truly understand the material. "He teaches you 200% of what you need to know compared to other professors. So even if you only retain 50% of what's taught, you've mastered 100% of the material for 170A."

Would strongly recommend to go to his office hours and the TA's.

Professor Kim is a very professional instructor. His lecture is very organized and easy to follow. By using enough examples, the concept he taught are easy to be grasped. He replies the emails on time and gives a lot of hint on his homework. Most importantly, he provides practice exam and study guide for midterm and finals which are extremely helpful. As a student in UCLA, I do feel flattered to have a math professor who provides study guide and a whole lecture for review without any students ask for it! Overall, he is a good professor and I would not mind to choose him again if possible.

Dope professor who makes the effort to plan his curriculum really well. Made sure material was explained thoroughly and everyone understood it. Will take his class again for sure!
