Yes, Brent was tough and his midterms often impossible to finish in the alotted time, but that just means PARTIAL CREDIT. I got away with so much partial credit on problems I didn't have a freaking clue how to do. Just write down shit on the tests and you're bound to get some credit. NEVER leave a question blank, always write what you know, equations or what you think you might do if you had the given time/prerequisite answers. In general, as hard as people say his tests are, they are do-able. The final especially is on the caliber of the midterms, but you have an extra hour for two midterms worth of material. So it is totally do-able. Also, if you are willing to do the homework, many homework problems do share similarities to his test problems, even though he states they are nothing like them. If you fully understand the homework you should do fine. All I have to say is ride the curve. Also, his workshops are a real plus, since he gives you really good problems that are taken from his own midterms and you get an exact feel for it.

Overall he was a great guy and he was enthusiastic and I loved his sometimes morbid humor. Either way he was out there enough to get a good laugh out of the class. Great professor and incredibly knowledgable. If you're here to learn (which you should be) you should take him. It's not all as bad as some people make it out to be.
