Quarter Taken: N/A Submitted Dec. 29, 2014 Grade Received: N/A

Courses Taken: PIC 10A AND PIC 10B

The most important thing to know about Prof. Ouellette is that he does not curve. He cares about his students and is a nice guy, but it is very difficult to get a good grade.

PIC 10A: The first half of pic 10A is very easy, then it gets moderately difficult. I did well above average on all the exams, 100% on the homework assignments, ended up with a B in the class. That is because he did not curve the class, and my raw score was a B. I felt that my comprehension of the material was at an A- level, but I accepted the B and enrolled in his 10B class.

PIC 10B: The hardest class I've taken at UCLA. On the first day of class, the class and waitlist were full with around 65 students. After the first midterm, only 40 of us remained in the class. The exams were very difficult. Still, Ouellette cares about his students. He's always in the PIC lab helping us with homework, and he once sat down with me for two hours to go over my past exams with me. Such a nice person, but does not give generous grades. I ended up failing PIC 10B and I know I was not the only one. I will be retaking the class with another professor.

His Grading Scheme:
30% homework
15% Midterm 1, 15% Midterm 2
40% final
Tip: Check the testbank, he repeats questions and format year to year. Good luck!

He is a super nice guy and extremely concerned with his students! It's not easy to get an A thought

I took Math 33A Fall 2012 with Oulette and he's an absolutely GREAT Linear Algebra Professor. Linear Alg. can be a tricky subject that will make ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE with the wrong professor. Oulette broke it down and made it work. His homework assignments are all even #s so get Cramster. Study hard for the tests, - they're actually REALLY easy, but you never no. For midterm 1 and 2, he put 1 proof. No problems. Take him for Math33A! AS for Pic10A, I hear mixed reviews.

PS: He drinks like 6 cups of Coffee a day, so he moves at LIGHT SPEED! Good thing he can speak english like an American =)
