Class can be difficult. Quizzes and exams are intentionally hard. Professor had a student who had an anxiety attack during the midterm and asked us to "not do that."
Material is interesting but very theoretical at times. The TA saved this class for me.
Homework assignments take a long time, start them early.
Overall not terrible but I recommend another comm for this required core.
I had very mixed feelings about this class throughout the quarter. In the beginning I loved it, the professor was super passionate about what he was teaching, the slides were well organized, lectures were thorough. But then the class took a turn with some very simple but unexpected math and the use of a software program that made me hate it for a bit. At the end however, I am back to really enjoying the class, I mastered the use of the software and found out some information that I think is relevant beyond the class. Midterm exam was very easy if you study, all multiple choice and True/False. There are quizzes every Monday, the lowest one is dropped, but that means attendance is pretty necessary. The professor was willing to clear up any questions and really elaborate if the class was confused. There are no TA sections but the TA was readily available to help if need be. This class is about real social networks in life, not about social networking sites, just FYI.
