I was terrified to take his class because his reviews of bruin walk said that he was a bad professor. I was so scared to take his class, but I took my chances.
Professor Gleizer is one of the most friendly and personable professors I have met while being here at UCLA. He was very patient, and always willing to walk through questions with students in his office hours.
During lecture, he would go over Precalculus and he would also lecture on the material for Math 3A. He was straightforward, and he wanted his students to succeed. He gave practice exams and they were almost identical to both midterms. The final was much harder, but I walked away with a B in the class.
Great Professor. I would definitely recommend to take him. Go to his office hours!

Math 32B with Oleg happened to be one of my favorite classes I've taken at ucla (it might be because I only took this class over summer session so more time to study but still a great course).
I had him for 2 hour lectures, and he would give us the break and most of the lectures were engaging and interesting. The material is really hard so Oleg would spend a lot more time covering the more difficult parts.
Really, in order to keep up, read the textbook before class. you'll understand what's going and then learn more in class why things are happening. Takes up a good amount of time but it'd probably be harder trying to memorize everything instead of actually understanding the material.
His office hours are really helpful, especially if you have a homework question or a question with something from lecture.
He cracks the lamest Dad jokes, but theyre so bad theyre funny and it lightens up the mood during class.
The other reviews say his accent is bad, but honestly it's a Russian accent that isn't even too profound: you can understand what he's saying.
Yeah, most of the material was learned with the book, but the professor helped me understand even more on what's going on.
