Fall 2016 - First of all, I have to admit that Christou is one of the best professors at UCLA. He is the most approachable professor I have ever seen. He usually holds approximately 20 hours of OH a week, if you have any question anytime, u can find him. His office hours help a lot and he is extremely helpful. HOWEVER, there is a big but... His lecture is usually at an extremely fast pace that if you miss one lecture, it can be really hard for you to know what he is talking about in the next lecture. He gives tons of handouts and he doesn't use textbook, but these handouts are really helpful. THE MOST HORRIBLE THING about Christou is his exam. I just finished my second Midterm and I would say it is the MOST, MOST, MOST difficult midterm I have ever seen in my LIFE. I studied really hard for the midterm but I think it would be hard for me to get a score over 30. When I got the midterm during the exam, I found I don't know how to do question 1 part a), then I moved up to part b), then i found I don't know how to do part b), then I moved to part c), and I found I don't know how to do part c), I moved to fking part d) desperately. His tests are ridiculous, those tests are useless tests that make us study really hard to get a freaking low score. And by the way, his midterm is three-hour..... a little bit shorter than a final... Honestly, you don't need to prepare for the exam because staying up late at night won't improve your score even a little. He is still one of the best professors at ucla even though he gives ridiculously hard exams. But I do not recommend to take his class if you want to get an A or if you don't want to spend hours and hours of useless time on preparing for his exams while getting a heartbreaking score.
