Math 33A Linear Algebra and Applications Professor Laub can be a little difficult to understand in class or office hours. He may not make everything clear or bother to explain it. Luckily I had a great TA. His exams however were not very tough. You get to have a two-sided page of notes on the exam. His practice exams are pretty similar to the actual one. If you are burdened with classes for a quarter with this class, I recommend you take it with him to reduce the workload.
Never take his course! You will learn nothing! He is not responsible for the test! Just use practice ones. I thought I learnt well in Matrix but I did not know he would use the same questions as his test...I got B because many students have already do the test... Never take his course I regretted to take his course!
