Different from any other math class, exams are definitely doable as long as you study first

The content wasn't terribly difficult to learn, however there is a constant stream of coursework to complete until week 8/9 of the quarter -- this was by far the most challenging part of the course. There are assignments due Wednesday/Friday/Sunday. Don't wait until Wednesday to start homework assignments & attend the exam reviews; this will set you up for success grade-wise. Kimberly Brehm's Discrete Math series on YouTube is a lifesaver.

Read the notes. Be active in discussions and visit office hours. I have an engineer background so I've gone through a lot of math. This course still took a lot of time for me to understand and get through the notes/assignments. Put in the time and effort and the material isn't too difficult.
