Professor Murfet is a nice guy, but a horrible teacher. I took calculus in high school and still struggled in this course. The way he teaches in ineffective because he spends too much time explaining concepts, instead of actually helping us understand them. He is very neat and puts time in to the class, but if I could register again, I would not pick him as a professor. His midterms are about 27 points each, which gave me the idea that he almost wanted us to fail. His tests are much more difficult than his practice exams, and some of the questions seem almost impossible to answer. His exams are tricky, so you must study hard in order to recieve a good score. Take advantage of whatever tutoring you can find, and memorize the concepts from his lectures. Do the book problems for extra practice. Some of the things he teaches though, are not in the book or online anywhere because they are "made up." But on a positive note, his accect is very nice, and you can get a giggle out of the lectures if you pay attention. You can get a good grade in the class.

Good luck

Professor Murfet is quite dedicated in his teaching. I mean, he spends a lot of time taking material from the book and rewriting them into more readable lecture notes for every lecture. That being said, he follows the book very closely and he puts his lecture notes online anyway so if you read through the book, you can get a decent grade without going to any of his lectures.

honestly, the man should not be teaching upper division courses, i am a math major taking my upper divs and he clearly does not know how to teach upper div math courses, he goes straight from the book which is something a 3a, 3b, 3c or 31a, 31b, 32a... professor should do. hes a nice guy though. oh and his teasts are wayyy harder than his homewokr assignments and notes.
