The level of maths is higher than they suggest, you do need to be familiar with complex numbers and calculus.
Most of the course was taken up with deriving various equations from first principles. At the end of each lesson you were left thinking "so what" - I don't really care where the equations come from, but I would like to have been told more about what they relate to in practical terms, and how to use them to design circuits.

There were also problems with the 'build your own guitar amp' section - a couple of design errors in the circuit left students with an amp that didn't work and no help from the staff - the issues were only resolved by fellow students in the forum.
