A few days ago, I was in a horrific car crash. At some point, the paramedics told me that my heart stopped beating, and I was considered medically dead for 2 minutes. At some point in my period of unconsciousness, however, something incredible happened. After being in a state of utter and complete blackness for what seemed like an eternity, I suddenly woke up in a bright field with a long staircase in front of me. I walked up the staircase, feeling a pleasant warmth from the radiating sun surround me as I did so. Eventually, I reached giant golden gates at the top of the staircase. That's when the memory of the car crash hit me like a ton of bricks, and I suddenly realized that I had died and I was now at the gates of heaven. However, I wasn't frightened. There was something calming about this place. After waiting a few minutes, I saw a figure slowly walking towards me and the gates. He eventually reached the gates, and without even touching them, he summoned them to open. Something deep inside told me that this figure opening the doors and about to confront me was God. When the gates opened, he stepped forth, and that's when I saw his face. Standing in front of me, in all his godly grandiosity, was Akram Almohalwas. I was frozen with awe. He handed me a chi square table, and told me that the meaning of life can be determined alone from taking his Stats 13 class. At this moment I was certain: Almohalwas himself was God. I reached to touch his beautiful face, but that's when I woke up in the hospital. I will never forget this experience, and my life will never be the same afterwards.

Summer 2019 - Wow, this guy is literally the G.O.A.T. Stats 100B is probably one of the hardest statistics courses at UCLA, but this professor made it incredibly easy to understand and definitely made the material interesting to learn with real-life examples and applications. (NOTE: This applies to his summer course. I am not sure if this will necessarily apply to his regular quarter courses). He is also super patient and helpful in office hours as well. I think this guy is underrated, especially when everyone raves about Christou. However, Almohalwas is probably one of my favorite professors so far at UCLA. The homework is incredibly INCREDIBLY helpful for the exams. MAKE SURE TO DO THEM AND UNDERSTAND HOW TO DO EACH PROBLEM because again they are VERY HELPFUL for the exams! Also, he gives out extra credit on his final and a bunch of other free points (attendance, participation, etc). Also, he is a little bit messy as the previous reviews have stated (there are files everywhere on CCLE), but he just wants to give you all of the material you will ever need to help you succeed and master the course. Honestly, the hardest part about his class is that the class is essentially straight-scaled (since everyone knows the material really well and so do really well on the exams). So, it may be hard to come back if you don't do that great on one of the exams. However, it is very doable to get an A. Literally, amazing and highly underrated in my opinion. 10/10 would recommend and would take the class again. I look forward to taking more upper-division courses with him. This guy is definitely a few standard deviations above the mean for amazing professors!
