    if this wasn't a pre-req for my major, i wouldn't have taken this class. professor o'neill is a great guy, but as a teacher he is all over the place. i found it so so difficult to grasp the concepts and relied a lot on my TA and the discussion sections. maybe try taking this class with friends, or try to make sure you clarify confusing concepts with the professor or TA!
