This class was interesting and not too challenging! Professor Andalon designed the course in a tangible way that built our skills with assignments. He is a great professor, however paying full attention during lecture can be challenging as it was 2 hours long. He provides a study guide for the midterm and final which comprise 10 multiple choice questions on the exams. Professor Andalon also allows two absences before lack of attendance impacts your grade.

This class was great. Andalon is a great instructor. He cares about the students and it was easy to get an A if you turned in the assignments. He divides the research paper up into 4 parts, and each part leads up to the final paper. He doesn't try to trick you - he just wants the students to learn and be passionate about the subject matter. I would definitely take a class from him again.

If you're debating whether to take this class or not, I'm a 4th year w hella experience right here letting you know that all his classes are as good as it gets at UCLA. HE IS AMAZING, UNDERSTANDING, CARING. You hardly ever get accessible classes w professors who care but he does. Take it. Workload is reasonable and you learn so much. TAKE IT

I feel like Professor Andalon is one of the best professors at UCLA. Although he is a well-known and very reputable professor, he is very kind and respectful to his students. He is very organized, and his lectures are very clear. One thing I want to point out is that he always dressed in business-casual clothing (dress shirts and suit jackets) to give lectures. He always spoke to us in a professional tone (as if he was speaking to his colleagues). He never demanded respect because he is a professor, but all his students love him and highly respect him because of his character. Regarding the class grade, it is made up of 10% attendance, 20% main exam (open book/multiple choice), 55% group project, and 15% individual assignment. He also gives a 5% extra credit opportunity! Professor Andalon wants you to learn and cares about what you will take away from his class. So, instead of assigning unnecessary busywork, a crazy amount of readings/papers, and nerve-wracking exams, he focuses to engage students in the course material by group collaboration work. I wouldn't say it's a super easy class (because you do have to put in extra hours to work with other group members), but it's rewarding. As long as you put in your work, you are guaranteed a good grade. I really enjoyed his class.
