1) A nice lady, but you may find that she pauses quite often, and keep saying "uh..hmm...." But it's not necessarily a bad thing as you can take your time to take note.

2) Never read the book ($82 course reader, too expensive), just studied my lecture notes + internet source

--> Midterm = 93 (Mean = 83)(rank 6th out of 6X students but still only A-)

Simply memorize everything from the lecture slides (no Q from the book luckily).....just a matter of rote memorization really (kinda like LS3)

--> Final = dunno but definitely worse than midterm, at most 8x.

The final was much HARDER, and TA has warned us that in advance....some questions are not as straightforward but still doable if you're familiar with the material....One question was from book (I skipped it)...

Final Grade: A (I can't believe it, she must have curved it up a lot)
