I personally really enjoyed this class. I was nervous going into it because I had taken a few quarters off from taking any PIC classes but professor Azencot made it pretty easy for me to jump back into it. His teaching style works really well for me. He typically poses a question about how to do something and makes students think through how they would do it. Then proceeds to show us the right way to do it. If you engage in class and really try to think things through it works really well. I learned so much in class I barely had to study for the exams outside of class. The tests were fair and not too difficult although the timing was definitely tight, but I might just take a while to think through programming problems. Our TA went over how to do the homework every week so if you attended section (which happens twice a week) at least semi-regularly you should do pretty well on the homework. The lecture slides and code done in class are posted online so they are easy to go back and to refer to. Professor Azencot might not have had the best ratings but he is honestly one of my favorite and most effective professors I've had at UCLA.

The exams for this class were a little bizarre; the first midterm was extraordinarily hard, but the second midterm and final were extremely easy, with averages in the low 90s. The final was actually only two pages.

Hyde is one of the sweetest and most wholesome professors I've taken a class with. He's very caring towards students and wants to help all his students do well and succeed in the class. His lectures are pretty entertaining and engaging. However, they can become a little tedious and a little hard to follow as the quarter ends when the material becomes heavier. However, Hyde is more than willing to help his students out whenever they have an issue, during lectures or with homework.

There are 5 homework assignments, of which 3 are relatively short and straightforward, while the other 2 are long. Those 2 projects are definitely very tiring and challenging, and will take a good amount of time to complete, so be prepared (Hyde warns you multiple times about this too). However, they definitely ensure you totally understand the concept they touch on.

The midterm was really straightforward and easy, while the final was significantly tougher, although not the worst. The homework alone was worth 50%, so doing well on the homework and midterm is key to getting a good grade.

All in all, I would definitely take another class with Hyde. However, this class is pretty tough, so expect to put a good amount of work into it.
