The prof is really knowledgeable and helpful, but I found the course really boring most of the time, especially since it was a 2 hour long night lecture.

Great prof - his lecture notes and lecture CD are very useful. The textbook is only useful for some of the tutorial assignments, it's superfluous to the actual course material.

Professor Bols is amazing ! I would recommend going to class just because of how funny he is, but if not, the lecture CD is basically the same as his lectures, plus provide diagrams. Textbook is completely useless, so don't buy it. Very good course, it's a prereq for many courses, so you should take it if you're in science or AHS !

After about 4 weeks i didn't go to any more lectures and used the cd to watch lectures instead...bad idea. I got really behind. The cd is helpful especially because in class he goes kind of fast. Niels Bols is a great prof everyone loves him! However the course itself is a lot of material and the exam was pretty difficult.
