Professor Fernandez rules! He's definitely one of the better professors in the math department, and since I heard he might not be teaching at UCLA much longer, it would be a REAL treat if you could take him for any math course. Be prepared to take a lot of notes as Fernandez writes A LOT during class. His handwriting, however, can be sloppy at times, so it can be kind of difficult to make out what he is writing. Nevertheless, he's generally clear when he's delivering the material. One of the reasons why Math 132 wasn't terribly bad was because Fernandez used a different textbook for the class, and from what I have heard, this different textbook is better than the actual textbook for other 132 classes. While the book may not be clear at times at presenting concepts, their examples are generally understandable to the point where you can pretty much do the homework without even reading the introductory parts of each section. His midterm was a little trippy, but it really wasn't too bad as long as you study the homework assignments and the different formulas in the textbook. The final was pretty grueling, but not terribly hard. I would HIGHLY recommend going to his Office Hours because he can help you a lot on the homework. He taught two classes when I had him for 132, so his office got pretty crowded, but other than that it's not too bad. Plus, when I was the only student who showed up at the beginning of his Office Hours, he even bought me some tea and taught me how to make it! The TA was pretty cool too, although I kind of wish he covered more about the homework, but his office hours help too. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
