What do students have to say about the course?

While it starts off with where things were left in class 12th, it diverges from it the further we move through the syllabus. I suppose your relationship with Maths remains the same. It’s fun if you understand what’s going on and you can solve questions, and it’s extremely hard if you don’t get the topic.
