Quarter: Summer 2019
Grade: A+
Aug. 12, 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!

If you consider copying slides from others and being utterly disorganized as a style, then yes he has a style. He crossed the other professors' names off the slides he copied in the hope we won't notice.

Given that, my friends and I self-studied most of the material as his lectures are not helpful. His final tested the last two chapters (9 in total) which he quickly covered in week 10 because we were running out of time.

Take Christou instead if you want to learn

Not as intense as Christou, but also covers less content though.

Pretty much the best professor I've ever had. He genuinely cares so much about his students and it always fair. Great lecturer as well, explained the concepts very well. Such a gem of a person, so glad I took this class with him.

Almohalwas copied Christou's lecture notes (plus a bunch of other random notes from the Web) and posted an overwhelming amount on CCLE. Slightly disorganized, but he was helpful in explaining the challenging concepts of 100B slowly. If you're looking for a less intense version of 100B, have a solid math background, and can be patient with his disorganizedness, take him.

Professor Almohalwas is such a great professor. He is very passionate about his teaching and is very easy to approach if you have any questions or need clarity. He is very clear about what he expects and makes all of his lecture notes available online. He provided formula sheets for the midterm and allowed 1 full page front and back of any notes you wanted for the final. Overall, great class! If you study you'll get the grade you deserve.

He seems confusing at first because his teaching style is a little different. The most important thing that you can do is know everything in the notes he provides and write down all the examples he does in class. To succeed I went to many office hours and asked him to redo profs and all the examples I wasn't able to follow in class. He is extremely patient in office hours and has many of them- so take advantage! Other than that, his tests are fair and directly mirror the in class material.
