Yeah not that great of a professor. Granted I got a little frustrated but here is why. This class should be fine for anyone who has recently taken calculus before. He expects you to have a general level of calculus knowledge but thats not fair because this is the first class... I have never taken calculus... my high school didn't offer it, so this class was incredibly unfair to me. I started with scoring way below average on first midterm, then slightly below on second, and then reasonably above on final so obviously I started getting the material. But its just not a fair class. my recomendation is if you havent taken calc yet then get a tutor before the quarter and review.

If it wasnt for my AAP tutor Saloni I would have absolutely failed. I learned far more from here than from Watson, his teaching is to theoretical and I had trouble grasping it. He needs to explain things more simply and slower for us out there who havent taken calc before.
