Even though he seems really helpful but most of the time he tries to twist the explanation. His lecture notes are copy-paste from the book so is pointless to attend the lecture unless you have spare time to waste. Hw load is massive so be prepared to do 35-45 problems a week. Exams are pretty much same version of hw problems but he takes so many point off for small mistake even if you have the right answers (imagine you did everything right, exactly like solution manual but you gonna end up with high C) and there are typos in every exam. The only good thing about this class was the super helpful TA and the fact that final exam worths same weight as other exams so it doesn't really effect your grade at end

Math 132 with Arant was a decent experience. Arant is chill and easy to talk to. His lectures are pretty clear and I appreciate him live streaming and recording lecture. I do agree his lectures are pretty similar to the textbook but I'm okay with that. Exams are okay, with averages in the 80s but keep in mind that exams were online this quarter. He also posts exam review questions which are pretty helpful, so make sure you study them. However he does not post homework solutions which is a con. His grading scheme is
Scheme 1:
20% Homework (Lowest 1 dropped)
20% Midterm 1
20% Midterm 2
40% Final

Scheme 2:
20% Homework (Lowest 1 dropped)
30% Better midterm
50% Final

I think the cons of this class is homework can be very time consuming. All of his homework are problems from Gamelin's book. Each homework is usually 10-11 problems, however each problem can have multiple parts so you should start early. To be honest, I think the first two weeks of the quarter had the hardest material, which is chapter 1 in Gamelin. But maybe that's just me. It gets better after you learn about Cauchy Riemann and line integrals.

His lecture notes are clear enough to learn without going to class.

Homework is time consuming so go to OH.

Midterms and Finals are easy or at least fair but grader is meticulous and picky so because you have 24-hours for the test, you should spend extra time making your proofs coherent.
