I almost failed calculus in high school but got an A in this class Will is a great professor and a good guy

He's the best seriously! I always struggled with math but he really made it easier to understand. I couldn't have had a better professor.

If Peter Parker became a math professor. Conley was extremely accommodating with the online learning format. He didn't make live lectures or discussions mandatory, recorded his lectures, etc. He stays over his scheduled office hours time to help out students and even gave a 5 hour review session for the final.

Since this is technically the second time I'm taking this course (I took AP Calc AB in high school but didn't get a 5 on the exam), the course was manageable for me. However, the difference between my high school teacher and Conley is night and day. While my high school teacher wasn't bad, I never felt like I fully grasped the material based on her lectures alone. With Conley, I had a significantly deeper understanding of the material because he explains topics so that you understand them conceptually.

Great professor and great guy, I felt lucky to have him as a professor.

Conley is an awesome prof, take him if you can. Super helpful and makes a ton of exceptions on deadlines if he notices the whole class is taking longer than usual; really in touch with his students.
I have a brand new copy of the textbook , still in its packaging that I am looking to sell for $60. Text me @ (925)289-6294 if you're interested!

Professor Conley is by far the best professor I've had at UCLA thus far. His lectures are super clear and he is always willing to go out of his way to offer extra help outside of class. I definitely recommend going to his midterm/final review sessions as they were super informative and a great review of the material.

As a math major this class was easy for me. I took this class simply because I want to review some math material since I haven't been doing math for quite a while before college. However, Dr. Conley's background in abstract algebra can never be underestimated, and he delivers excellent talks in advanced topics outside his usual lower division classes.

Professor Conley is one of the best teachers in the Math department. He explains very clearly the topics and really cares about his students. Every lecture he would start by doing a quick review on the last one, before continuing to new topics. He makes this class really simple and helps you understand wat better than other professors. There is weekly homework, two midterms and a final. You can drop your lowest midterm. There is also Sapling. What was really great about him were his review sessions, He would spend 4 hours in a classroom reviewing all the topics for a test, without getting tired!
Professor Conley is one of the only lectures I have had that actually enjoys teaching. If your knowledge in Calculus is not strong, you should definitely take this class.

Will Conley is a G. His class is insanely easy because it's basically AP AB Calc. honestly, my high school calc class was harder than this class. And even if you are confused on something, Conley will help you bc he's literally the nicest guy on earth. Also, you probably don't need to go to any lectures if you took AB calc in high school and got a 4 or 5 because it's all a repeat of that stuff. Just go to the review session before the midterms and final because he basically reteaches everything from the past lectures in a matter of three hours. So if you go to the review sessions and never go to lecture you probably could still get an A lol. The discussions are also nice because you just do practice problems and they don't take attendance. Take this class with Conley... it's the easiest math you'll take at UCLA I guarantee it.

Conley was a decent professor in this class. I found his tests to be quite difficult, and much of the homework assignments we were assigned out of the textbook (10% of your grade) were completely different from the types of questions he would ask on the exams. My TA (B. Stone) wasn't all that helpful either, and we simply just did a series of worksheets for the first 30 minutes and then he would attempt to explain them. I found the discussion sections to be quite useless, to be honest. I wish I had known about the Student Math Center at the beginning of my first quarter. It was by far the most helpful resource I found in getting through this class. Overall, I don't think this class was easy, but I think Conley was fair, especially when compared to other instructors.
