To all the people who want to take this course, go find yourself another one! The professors are nice but I really don't think this class is designed for undergrads. First of all, it's very fast-paced, you need to learn one paper per week. Sounds easy at first, but you will know it's not the case later on, especially during midterm and final weeks. Second, the exams are unreasonably hard if you don't have enough background info. I feel like the professors mentioned the relatively shallow things in the lecture, but what on the exams were actually trillion times harder and trickier. The premise for you to get a good grade is that you know your shit and you fully understand the papers, including the jargon, techniques and so on. If you don't know them, bro, you will be surprised when you see your exam. Don't get fooled by the "open book" setting because you basically don't have enough time. I also don't think the discussions were that helpful either. I would not go if it's not for the discussion quizzes. Also, I don't know what my final grade is based on since they did not give a detailed breakdown. I thought I had a pretty solid standing in the class but it turned out to be a B. If you check the grade distribution for the past years, you can notice only 30% of the students can get an A- or above and you are competing with grad students in the class as well. Well, now you know
