AngularJS: Is using controllers, service and directives pretty common?

I am new to Angular and wonder if the great PluralSight video called "AngularJS Forms Using Bootstrap and MVC 5" is right on the money.  It explains the architecture using AngularJS controllers, services and directives.

When you combine with MVC5, that will mean there will be controllers on both the front and back ends. Does this mean the client side is also using MVC?

Is this a common pattern for Angular?

Curious.

Thanks

Hi,
Before starting with Angular, please read some theory about it. This will help you a lot.
Actually Angular is MVW (Model View Whatever).
so in place of whatever you can put anything like Controller / Presenter / ViewModel, etc.

thanks!

why is it called "MV* framework"? Is there anything but 'C' that could replace the wildcard character?
