How can this course receive 5 stars ? I used to watch Great Courses to understand what I saw on the internet. Now? Now I must search the internet to explain what i just watched on Great Courses math lectures. Much of the theory here is inaccessible to beginners and the concepts are strung together and become unwieldy. . The Professor all but seems to read from a textbook and the graphics are just restatements of his text and not sophisticated in any way.. This course is not for beginners and in no way can one master the topic unless one is already a master. It's NOT the Professor's fault either. Great Courses has deviated from the older format (i.e. See Edwards and calculus) and adopted an abbreviated "race track" approach of dumping materiel onto the viewer as quickly as the Professor can in 24 lectures. I would prefer the 36 lecture format with the classroom feel to the neatly packaged new format of this lecture series (and "Differential Equations a Visual Approach" as well) . Sample a lesson and see for yourself. You'll need to go to the internet too I'd bet.

I have not watched this course yet, but I am giving it 5 stars just for the guidebook, which is the best that I have ever seen on the Great Courses Plus. I love the colorful illustrations, highlighting of key terms, and the highlighting of key points, including definitions and axioms. Like the rest of the Great Courses, I would love to also see this in EPUB or Kindle format so that it could be more easily read on the phone. I hope that the Great Courses continues to publish better guidebooks, since I do believe it makes it much easier to learn the course, and to review the material.
