Leary is a pretty bad professor. He writes literally everything he says on the board and so going to class is equivalent to having the book read to you. Tests are fair, but everyone does really well which means that even missing one question can cost you a good grade. The main issue I had with the class was that the graders basically graded half of the assignments in the class incorrectly but Leary didn't really seem to care. This means that how much you know doesn't correlate well with your final grade. Overall I wouldn't recommend this professor.

Class is pretty easy, but this guy writes everything, I mean, EVERYTHING, that comes out of his mouth onto the whiteboard. For simple proofs, he can easily use up 4-5 of the 6 sliding whiteboards in A51. And don't get me started on his code for algorithms; you will write down a full page of pseudo-pseudocode, and in the end have no idea how to do whatever he was teaching.

Lectures are above-average quality and can get a bit wordy, but Prof. Leary is very approachable and helpful during office hours.
