TAKE HIM IF HE EVER TEACHES 14C AGAIN. Two midterms and a final make your grade in this class, but they're all very doable, especially because he structures his practice exams VERY similarly to the real tests. If you go to his review sessions where he provides answers to the practice exams and spend some time on your own to truly understand the material, you will do well. I'm surprised the class average wasn't higher. Put in work and you will get an A. There was such an awesome curve at the end of this quarter I was a tiny bit sad that I got an A and not A+ LOL and this is coming from a student who has gotten straight B+'s in 14A and 14B. TAKE CHANG! He's funny, too.
I had Dr. Chang for 30B, and he is literally my favorite professor that I've had at UCLA. He knows his stuff, but more than that, he knows what will be complicated for students to understand and is able to break it down very easily. Also, he has the best sense of humor and is a great lecturer- so class is actually fun AND you learn things. I really wish I could have had him for more than one class!! Hands down a great professor and a great person! Tips: do the practice midterms, and if you don't understand it ASK during office hours and the tests will be super doable!
This class have massive amount of material to learn. Dr. Chang had a detailed lecture notes that was uploaded after every lecture. It was helpful. The midterm was very hard but final was ok. He goes pretty fast.It took me a while to catch up with the material and know what I am studying for. I think an outline could be helpful.
