Most Helpful Review

I took Professor Catton for MAE 157 during Fall Quarter 2013. His lectures can get very boring and off-tangent at times. But its fine, since the quizzes in the class are based off the lab manual/powerpoint slides from another professor. For lecture courses, I wouldn't recommend Catton, but for a lab class, his class isn't that bad and I feel that the grading was nice. Also, he is a very knowledgeable man, but isn't very good at lecturing.

As I mentioned, there are quizzes before every lab. To prepare for those, just read through the lab manual andor powerpoint slides. They consist of three questions and are not difficult. Most questions are based off the objective of the lab, simple equations, etc. For the lab reports, there were three group lab reports, four individual summaries, one individual lab report, and one error analysis HW assignment. Not bad as long as you do everything that is required for the reports.

this guy is pretty cool. I don't have strong feelings about him one way or another. since this was a lab class I didn't find out about his lecturing prowess. this is all irrelevant anyway.

this one time we were doing the data acquisition lab and he kept coming and asking us if we finished it and we would be like "...just one more to go" but he kept doing it every 15 minutes and we were like whatever so then we finally finish it and we left and went downstairs and exited the E-IV building and we see this guy coming out the parking lot swerving and shit. he saw us too. turns out that there was a jamba juice promotion that ran until 5PM where they gave free jamba-juice with a coupon that you had to print (they sent an email to everyone) and he didn't want to miss it so he ran to his car as soon as we finished and raced out the parking lot. [unlikely but the first part is true]

he gave me an A though so I like him but not as much as I would have if he had gave me an A+.

One of the best professors I have had at UCLA. Professor Hu's class is very enjoyable. He cares about students' understanding the materials and he is very knowledgeable about it. I believe that I learned a lot from this class and it helps prepare me better for my future career.

He knows his stuff. However, when you try to reach him through email, he gets back to you really late and also doesn't really help much. Basically, when I ask a question, he says stuff like, "By studying..(general concept)". He's not helpful AT ALL!
