Bad accent, worse teaching, straightforward tests.

Grading is 20/40/40 or 20/20/60 HW/Midterm/Final. Weekly homeworks are about 25 problems apiece.

He's bad, but not the worst out there. Thankfully, 33A is a class where you can self-study for the most part and do well. Having a good TA makes all the difference in this class-- go to discussion!

Professor Ma is the worst professor I've had during my first year at UCLA. He seriously sucks. Most students say that 33A is way easier than 32B, but with Ma as my professor, 33A was horrible.

His lectures are straight out of the book and he has a thick accent. There's absolutely no reason to go to lecture. Just read out of the book, go to discussion, and do a lot of practice problems.

On top of that, he's rude and mean. Just don't go to class.

Recommend him, seriously. Despite his accent he really makes himself clear, and most importantly he seldom makes calculation mistakes. His grading policy is fair and midterms not hard. I suffered Burke, so I know how well Prof Ma teaches.
