Ralston was an overall good professor. His lectures were easily understandable and he seemed to know exactly how to teach the class. He sort of even yelled at one of the other Math 32A professors because he was teaching his class something he shouldn't be spending his time on. The tests are comprehensive and predictable, and for my class, the quizzes were online which basically meant free points. Overall a decent professor. Nothing wrong with him.

Professor Ralston is a adorable guy. He has the energy should not appear in his age. Extreme easy midterm but hard final. Exams relevant to the book and you dont even go to the lecture. The grading policy is fine as long as you get 80+ overall, your are guarantee a A-. I did every single problem from the book and got A in the end.

I see this professor all the time when I walk through MS. He's always available. Math 33B is the easiest of the 30 series, although the 31s were easy. Class continues what was introduced in 31B. He stresses the theory of differential equations, which can be tricky but shouldn't be too bad if you really understand it. Only bad thing is there's no cheat sheet and the quizzes can be annoying and stressful.

It was a pain being in his class. I'm a math major and I love math, but this class was just too darn boring, and it might have been due to Ralston. He knows the material, but doesn't know how to deliver it. His midterm was fair, but the final blew me out of the water (I got a D on it, but somehow it was the 7th highest grade in the class, out of 40+ people). I wish he had a better way of making us understand the material or seeing its importance, but he couldn't. I shall avoid him at all costs. (Got an A- in the class btw.)
