I'll be honest. I disliked this subject - and I know many others who do too because the return I received was not enough for the amount of hours I put in the subject. The lecturer's fine but there were times where I had to seek out youtube videos and even lecture videos from the previous semester to understand what he was explaining. I would say all of the content you learnt were relatively easy/reasonable (you can understand it as it was pretty basic), but when you enter the tutorials, you will begin questioning yourself as to whether you really DID understand it. I struggled with the tutorial questions because they were out of my comfort zone. The tutorial questions pushes you to think further about the concepts more than what the lecturer had showcased in the lectures. I didn't get much out of the tutorial because I found it too difficult. Because the subject is under the pure mathematics department, don't expect it to be a breeze if you came out doing well in the first 3 maths subjects (calculus 1, calculus 2 and linear algebra). Rather than expecting a certain answer (like what the calculus subjects taught you to find), the subject focuses on proofs. One of the things that annoyed me about the proofs was that sometimes you had to work backwards to be able to write up the whole proof. My tutor was harsh on taking off marks but the assignments were ok. They weren't hard but I would say dedicate a day to complete them. The problem book did not provide answers to all the questions. overall the subject was definitely.. different. The main reason I disliked the subject was because the amount of hours I spent on the subject only got me an okay mark. otherwise, despite it being a painful journey across the semester, I am thankful that I got the subject over and done with.

I think everyone should try analysis, it is very important, but personally I did not enjoy it (mostly because I found it exceedingly more difficult that other courses). But this is purely a personal taste, and there are some very interesting things within real analysis. You cannot know without trying your hardest at it, you never know!

Quite an interesting subject. After doing this subject you'll never look at a proof the same way again! Having two tutes a week was quite useful. Unfortunately it is very easy to fall behind, and the level of rigour required for your proofs can be quite inconsistent between lectures, tutes and assignments, so that became a bit confusing also, but otherwise a good subject if you're interested in maths.

A very interesting and enjoyable subject if maths is your thing. It's easy to become overwhelmed and fall behind in the course content, but the tutes help to keep you on track. The content is hard and you are made to think about maths in a totally new way, so don't be afraid to feel stupid in the tutorials and ask questions - thoroughly understanding what is going on is the only way to pass this subject!

I liked the subject and the way it was taught, however I think that the way they teach proof-writing is incredibly poor and it could use work. It wasn't until 'Metric and Hilbert Spaces' in third year that I learned "Proof Machine" and honestly I think it should be taught during Real Analysis.
