Fall 2023 - This class is good for the most part! My biggest issue was that Professor Andalon doesn’t teach, and I mean that literally. He started lecturing week one material on week three, and then just kinda stopped? He assigns us a book to read (which he provides) but then never once talked about it in class. I gave up reading the assigned text after he said the only thing that’ll be on the midterm is lecture material, nothing from the textbook. That being said, his class is an easy A. There is 100 points total for his class, here’s the breakdown: ATTENDANCE: 20 points total. You don’t have to show up for class to receive these points because attendance is taken on BruinLearn via an “attendance quiz” which he literally provides the answers for in the description of the quiz. MIDTERM: 30 points total. The midterm is open note/open BruinLearn AND we got three days to do it (we could enter and exit the exam as much as we’d like). 10 multiple choice questions, one essay question. PROJECT: 50 points total. Broken down into 3 separate assignments, so assignment 1 is 15 points, assignment 2 is also 15 points, and assignment 3 (the final draft) is 20 points. This project is done all throughout the quarter. He always extended the group project dates, so if it was due on Friday, he would change it to Sunday. It can be done either alone or with a group. I recommend a group to lessen the workload. EXTRA CREDIT: He also offers 4 points of extra credit at the end of the quarter. The only way to get an A+ in his class is to have 101 (or more) points in his class, and you can only get over 100 points if you do the extra credit. Andalon is super nice too. He always comments on our assignments, encourages students to go to office hours, and is always willing to help if you needed it. He almost always replied to emails the same day. He is also a quick grader, usually getting your assignments back within a week. Overall, I’m grateful that the class was easy, but I still wish he lectured! It was nice not worrying about a class though. I would recommend if you need the units or just want an easy A, but don’t expect to learn much.
