I personally loved Lorenzelli. He is a very nice person and he really loves what he does. It is refreshing to have a professor that isn't a pompous ass.

I learned a lot from the class and found it all very interesting. I couldn't ask for more.

Professor Lorenzelli is nice and professional. He provides well written (as in organization but maybe not in handwriting) notes. He would try his best to clarify things in class, and he can be easily accessed outside of class. Perhaps more importantly, he is a very kind human being, that he would try to accommodate everybody's needs and you could always talk to him if you need anything special (ddl extensions and etc).

Professor Lorenzelli is a great guy. He's not the most energetic lecturer but he is thorough and clear. If you follow what he teaches in lecture or review his lecture notes, you can do pretty darn well in this class. Homework assignments were usually very straightforward and didn't take as much time as my other classes. Breaks were sometimes accompanied by a very special guest speaker-- his cat! Lorenzelli's cat is best cat 10/10

Flavio was very nice and funny when I took him for EE 131A! He has a pretty soft voice, but makes up for it with a nice lecture style that keeps everyone awake during the full two hours. He's willing to help, and there's nothing really bad about him. I'd definitely take him again if he were teaching another class in the EE department!

The homeworks weren't too bad for the most part, considering the TA was quite helpful on the more difficult problems. The midterm was a piece of cake, but the final was a little trickier.

Nevertheless, Flavio really likes to use the board A LOT, so be prepared to take several pages of notes each day. It will be difficult to gather all the concepts during the second half of the course, when he started to write more and more.

The project was kind of difficult, but the good thing about it is that Flavio would let us work in groups of up to three.

His grading, I imagine, is very fair. I finished in the top 10% of the class, and that was good enough for an A+!

I highly recommend Flavio for ANY course he is teaching.

Do not take this Professor at any cost. Nobody could follow anything he's doing and when it came to exam time I was extremely under prepared. the HW is not helpful and the lecture notes are a mess, the TA discussion notes are somehow worse. He doesn't post solutions for his exams so you won't have the option to review what you did wrong on the midterm while preparing for the final. I alway fall asleep during his lectures, yes they are that boring and it's all theory. There is an extra credit project that im unsure as to how much its worth but that too doesn't depend on your knowledge from this class but rather your knowledge on Python and machine learning.

Very interesting class if you are into linear algebra and MATLAB, that was the cool part.

It's also a pain in the ass, homework took me anywhere from 5 to 15 hours to complete each time. Lectures are hard to keep up with, because the professor mumbles and often seems uninterested. For example about seeming uninterested, on the first day of class he suggested that if you are genuinely interested in the subject that you should drop out of the class and take it with the other prof named Vandenberghe. I think he is sort of overrated on this website, not sure how.

Anticipating I will get a B, not sure how the curve for tests goes.
