Prof. Dario is absolutely wonderful! He was entertaining and engaging, two things many of faculty here at UCLA are lacking. He is one of the best professors I've had during my college career, and the course I took with him was certainly one of the most interesting. He really seems to care a lot about his students, and is always sympathetic if someone is sick or can't make it in to class. He is easy to relate to and lectures very well. I highly recommend taking a course with him!

it was an extremely interesting class. being my last class of the day (after 3 sciences), you would think i would be dead - but, he was quite captivating and made the entire class interesting. he cares a lot about his students and is easy to pay attention to because of his animated discussions. definitely the best class i've taken at ucla.

OK-- I did not take Anthropology 134 with Dr. Nardi, but Bruinwalk doesn't have Honors Collegium 25, so I randomly selected whatever course.

Honors 25 is basically a programming class, and that's what your homework is going to be, working with html and javascript. Some are challenging, but mostly they don't end up complicated, because Dr. Nardi helps you with them. Just ask. Btw, he is very nice and is also easy on the eyes.

The thing that I didn't like about his class is the grading. We never knew the grades we got per assignment. His exams are also a little hard to study for. On the midterm I got an A- (it was a computer-based exam that was quite confusing, and the average was pretty low on it). Never knew what I got on the final, although after toiling on the book (the textbook was a little boring), and with Nardi's book (I liked this one, it was an easy read), I'm pretty sure I did very, very well on that final. I ended up with an A- in the class. I wish I got an A, but hey, A- is cool.

I don't have enough good things to say about Professor Nardi. It is obviously a bit annoying we have to pay for a reader he made, but nonetheless, that reader will SAVE YOUR LIFE! If you have the reader, you don't really have to go to lecture. But if you don't have the reader, you will have to go to lecture and still find access to the reader because you need it for the tests/quizez. I also need to mention it is the best structured reader I've ever read so you get your money's worth. The way the class is graded is 10% participation (from stimulations we do. Answer questions and turn in to him), 30% final paper (which was actually extremely interesting and not too time consuming), and 60% tests (20% for each of the 3). I did not go to class much (I was taking 4 classes who were kicking my butt) but I must admit that everytime I did, I truly enjoyed it. I wish I had the time that quarter because the things he would bring up in class were so interesting. Anyways, point being is... TAKE THIS CLASS! You won't regret it!
