This class was definitely hard. Do the homework and know it well for the final. Midterm one is definitely harder then the second one. Go to office hour and ask questions. His writing is not the best and his lectures are all over the place. Make sure you get a great TA and you should be fine.

Professor Gieseker was excellent in my opinion. He's getting kinda old, so sometimes he'd make little notation errors (say, a basis alpha was v1, v2, ... And then the next line he'd write T(alpha1) instead of T(v1)), but other than that he was good. At the beginning of the quarter, I was a little lost with what he was doing, but I started reason before class and everything made more sense. The homework was fair, he marks a few problems that worth 15 points each, and then you get an additional 10 points for completing the remaining problems. We haven't had the final yet, but the two midterms were very straightforward, almost like homework plus practice midterms. He hasn't really told us any sort of curve (like what percent is A etc), but I think a lot of people will do well. I also had an awesome TA which helped but yeah, I would recommend this professor, and he's extremely nice and easy to talk to in office hours.

A really nice guy with a sense of humor. But at the same time, frankly, I learned nothing from him.
