Professor Hernandez-Leon seems like a nice person, although I felt this class section lacked effort on his behalf. This class was asynchronous and he used reused lectures from a previous term which was alienating. Our lectures were always jumbled up out of order and the dates of our tests and assignments were confusing because of a lack of communication from him clarifying the wrong dates from his old lectures. It was disappointing to pay tuition to have a reused video lecture and a poorly organized discussion section, as well. I really felt like I was completely alone in this class. I never felt like Professor or the TA cared about our success in this class or put effort into making the discussion section/lecture helpful for their students. I feel like this ultimately hurt the students in this class, as many of us struggled with our difficult tests which she could have provided helpful insight into preparing for. He provided optional Q&A sessions which were never helpful either, as he would wait for a student to ask a question and then would spend 20 minutes or more answering each question for too long or getting off-topic. It was never a productive way to spend time. On top of that, the tests and quizzes accounted for 90% of our grades and were very difficult. I felt as if the questions were being designed to intentionally trick us and make us doubt what we've learned. The material for this course was not nearly as difficult to understand as the tests/quizzes reflected. I would not say the 90% of my grade they accounted for was a fair judgment of our understanding of the material. Sadly, I would not recommend this course to other UCLA students for these reasons, even though the material was interesting.
Despite a heavy workload, I really enjoyed this course, worked hard and would take it again.
