How does your course compare?

Let’s say you are taking a course in Calculus (or Differential Equations, or whatever) and you want to know if it is up to snuff.  I suggest that students go to the MIT OCW (OpenCourseWare) site ( and look up the same course there.  You can find the course description, homework problems, old exams and a list of the skills that you should acquire from the course.  Then you can compare your course with one of the best.  You can see how well you are learning.
