I took MATH 33B during my freshman year. To be honest, it was not a wise decision. Please take 33B at least along with 33A. Otherwise, you would miss out on the linear algebra part and it can be dangerous (I didn't know what dimension was when I was taking the final. Fortunately, the exam was open book and 24 hours due to the pandemic. But imagine what would happen if it's a 3-hour exam in a lecture hall).
But the living legend, Adam Moreno, made it possible for me to get that solid "A". Please don't hesitate if you have an opportunity to take any MATH class with him. He's definitely the best Math professor you could expect. I got to know him when I was still taking MATH 31B and struggling with the guy named Brizolis in Fall 2019. Moreno was teaching the previous MATH 31B session and I went to one of his classes as an audition. I remembered that he was able to explain everything so clearly that I immediately made up my mind to sign up for his class in Winter 2020.
About the class itself, fair grading methods and really fair exams, weekly assigned homework but with doable amount of workload, and the best part is that Moreno does not expect you to know anything before you come to class. But when you are leaving the classroom 50 minutes later, you might have already established a decent understanding of the materials. Then a little bit of study every week and some revision before the exam will help you succeed.
By the way, to anyone who's planning to take Moreno's class in the future, please help me count how many Disney T-shirts he has. He's an interesting guy and that's probably something that drives me to go to every single one of his classes lol.
Adam Moreno is super clear. He's actually a good lecturer, which had me shook because I usually don't find lectures helpful. His homeowork assignments are very reasonable and his tests are just like the homework problems. Review the homework before tests and all you'll need to do during the tests is move your pencil from muscle memory. great breather class in a 4-stem quarter.
