I really liked Professor Eberhardt! He was super funny, easy to talk to, and made his lectures engaging. However, if you have the option to not take the 31 series, I wouldn't. I think every professor for 31A is going to be difficult, and I wouldn't waste your time on this since it is basically just calculus from high school. I would say that the homework was pretty easy since it was just the same problems we went over in lecture/discussion but with different numbers. The thing that really made me want to drop this class were the midterms. I bombed both of them because they were so much harder than what we did in class. It was nice that he allowed us to use a cheat sheet, however, it didn't help me much since I actually had zero clue what was going on during the exams. If you need to take this class, I really liked Eberhardt but maybe find a professor you know is a lot easier.

Eberhardt is a lot younger looking than you would expect from an average professor, so don't be shocked when you see a "student" going up to the front of the class to teach! Overall, he is a great professor. Jens is smart and lectures in a manner that builds understanding in his students. He has an accent that is a little hard to understand at first, but you'll get it after a couple of lectures. Eberhardt's office hours were helpful but were always super packed. His tests were reasonable and were multiple choice math concepts/rules and actual hand-written computations.

I really liked Eberhardt and thought he was engaging in class and really good at explaining what we were learning. If you put in the work the material is understandable and easy to work through.

Jens Eberhardt is a wonderful prof and I loved going to his lectures. He is very entertaining and funny. At the end of the last lecture, everyone cheered so loudly; it’s very obvious that most of us loved him as a teacher.
Midterms and final are extremely easy. The only “tricky” part are the multiple choice questions that are very theoretical, but really doable. This class is an easy A if you know a little about calc and he’s so friendly and funny that it is totally worth it! I would choose Eberhardt any day if I could :)

Jens is a great lecturer. Very clear, engaging, and funny. His two midterms are very easy so make sure you do well on them because his final is significantly harder than the midterms. The workload is low as well with the homework taking maybe 10 minutes max. I got high A's on both of the midterms but the final was pretty difficult and brought me down to a B+ :(

I thought Jens was really good! The homework was easy, midterms also pretty easy-- especially the first one. Final was kinda tricky but as long as you understand the concepts well, you should be able to logic everything out and do well enough to get an A in the course! Definitely one of my favorite professors since he was funny and kept lectures light and was straightforward.

He is a pretty good professor and seems to care about students. Both midterms were pretty straightforward but the final was a lot harder. He allows for a cheat sheet on all exams so expect more theoretical/multiple choice questions instead of typical questions you would write down.

Jens is one of my favorite professors I have taken at UCLA. He is young, funny and makes sure his students understand the concepts in lecture. Goes through lots of example problems, homework is super short (less than 6 problems per week). Midterms were pretty straight forward and fair, final a lot harder - which is to be expected. He allows for cheat sheets on the midterms and final which can save you. Overall, if you have to take this class I would take it with him because he is great and you will really learn a lot.
