I decided to transfer after this class, now Im enrolled in CalPoly, and now I regret my first decision to attend ucla for cs.
With these non-sense classes, you'll waste a great amount of time.

I would definitely recommend Millstein for 131. The projects are all doable (there is one that takes more time to code and plan, but he gives you an opportunity to work with a partner and more time). He gauged our interest for the C# project and ended up not assigning it. Grading was thus:

Projects - 40%, Midterm - 25%, Final - 35%

I didn't know Java, Prolog, or ML but it was doable. Midterm was very doable (people finished early). Final was harder and trickier. His tests don't have a lot of straight out coding but instead do a lot of multiple choice or short answer/coding problems that ask you details or tricky parts about the language. I would suggest going over concepts and languages very closely instead of worrying about difficult coding questions (which he doesn't do).

I ended up with a B, but I didn't learn each language or concept that closely so that wasn't too much of a shocker.
