MATH 110AH is a really fun course. The first week or two is spamming division algorithm and GCD and the remaining eight weeks is group theory. Having a strong linear algebra background really helps with this course. Now, independent of the course we have DAG. I have no idea how to feel about DAG. On one hand, his lectures are hard to follow and pulls random stuff out like dropping the takehome midterm on a brisk saturday afternoon without warning. On the other hand, he has to be one of the nicest profs I have ever have and really wants everyone to succeed. I ended up just reading Pinter's Abstract Algebra text and Elman's notes (which in itself i found a bit hard to read). There was a midterm, take home midterm and a final. The midterm was not too hard but the average was probably like 100+. The take home midterm is 19 problems (only 8 of which are graded) and its essentially one really big proof which has a REALLY satisfying end result. The final was 5 questions and 6 EC questions. The 5 regular questions were pretty easy but those 6 EC questions were pretty difficult. The graded homework was like 1 question per week. Unless you keep practicing the material with questions not assigned to you, its really easy to slip and fall behind. However, our TA, Ben, is one of the best TAs I've ever had and would answer my dumb questions a bunch.

Professor Gieseker's lectures aren't lucid, however he is very kind and answers any questions you have. I enjoyed 110AH with him.
