This class is interesting, to say the least. I personally didn't like the professor that much; his notes were always messy and unclear at times, all homework and exams were pretty hard and the textbook tended to have not many good examples for the types of questions we were given, and he was overall not clear/helpful when directly asked. My TA, Alexander, was outstanding. His discussion sections were great for getting good examples and a general review of what the professor taught poorly.
Most people rate this class great due to the pre-applied curve, that is if you get over a 50%, that is passing (C-). Although it is nice, the grading is extremely strict, especially that they will take OFF points if you put wrong work down, so you could technically get negative points (yes you read that right). Midterms are only one hour, and the final was only 2 hours instead of the allotted 3, which made it a time crunch for the amount of questions given. As long as you do well on the homework and aim to get 50% on the exam, you'll be good grade wise, but the class was a pain to get through in the very least.
Last thing, the material for the last three weeks of the course is extremely rushed if taken in the Winter quarter due to the holidays, but half of the final was on it. I would recommend taking it Spring as it has the least amount of holidays, so discussions and lectures aren't cut short.
(posted late bc this page did not exist) The professor was 5-10 mins late every day. Lectures were not the most clear but they got the job done. Homework was fine. Tests were rushed for time and a bit difficult but solvable once you find out a trick to simplify the problems. They allow a cheat sheet. Part of this being so manageable is that we had the best TA ever thank you Alex G
