If you can keep up, you'll do fine. Learning from her is like drinking from a fire hose -- you'll get a whole lot of water, but it's gonna hurt getting there.
Extremely intelligent (valedictorian of Harvard '84, I believe?) but not always clear as she thinks faster than just about everyone else.
Loved her, loved the class, good luck and godspeed soldier. And if you're really struggling, go ask TSmith. He's Farrell but on a less Ludicrous-Speed! level.

Gives opportunities to students that commit. Really nice and straight-forward. Little challenging, but really helpful in terms of learning. Somewhat Strict, but for the right reasons.

Really nice if you're nice to her. She knows what she's talking about, which sometimes gets in the way of her clarity explaining to student how to do something.

She belongs in college as a professor. Sometimes rude. Always seemed to give her AP calculus students higher priority. An authoritarian.

Makes the math department what it is. Polymaths, especially ones who can teach, are quite rare.
