This guy is insane, I had to study day and night to barely get a B in his class. It's a good thing I only took two hard classes (his included) and an easy elective otherwise I would have died. He is a VERY caring professor but he is also very young; because of this, I don't think he knows how to teach yet. For example, the first midterm, I think the average was in the low 30's -- he had to give a massive curve because even he thought he messed up on the difficulty level. Basically, if you were to google professor Teran, you will know his calibre of intelligence; and because of this, concepts that are easy in his head cause normal students to cry. If you can't get around taking a class with him, good luck :]!

Please take 151A with Teran if you can. His curve was super beneficial to our class, and the subject material is VERY useful. There is a LOT of information, so it is important to know the formulas and theorems, and get a good idea as to how to derive and quickly use the major formulas you’re given in class. Sometimes, Teran may write a lot of derivations and you may get lost. But just make sure to write everything he writes and catch up on the material after so that you don’t miss out on important facts. Our TA Jean-Michel was absolute godsend. If your class is strong, Teran will pull through. Definitely recommend. Oh, and he also worked on recent Disney films such as Moana and Frozen. So take him!
