Watson was pretty douchey, but after having taken some other math classes in comparison he was ok. The homework was difficult and often involved concepts not discussed in lecture, but his tests were very fair. Although they definitely were a bit of a time crunch, if you understood the material there was no reason not to do well. I got an 84 on midterm 1, a 90 on midterm 2, and a 92 on the final and got an A overall so his grading was pretty fair.

Great professor, has an interesting sense of humor that makes lectures semi-entertaining. Gets the content across very well. Tests are usually very fair; he'll have most problems be very similar to HW problems and then one or two that test whether you truly understand the concepts behind everything. He said that he doesn't curve much (although he admit that he'll give an A to anyone who gets an A on the final) but I still got an A- even though I averaged around a B on all exams.

Awesome professor. He has amazing lectures and explains all of the concepts extremely well. During office hours, you have to ask individual questions. Homework is pretty long and the graders are pretty picky. Midterm and final exam are really long and you will run out of time. They are also pretty tough, but if you really understand the concepts and have good critical thinking then you will do well. He says he doesn't know what curving is (he understood by the end of the quarter), but he still doesn't curve the class much. I still recommend him for any math course because he cares and you will really understand the concepts.
