I feel like Professor Andalon is one of the best professors at UCLA. Although he is a well-known and 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 dresses in business-casual clothing (dress shirts and suit jackets) to give lectures. He always speaks to his students in professional tone (as if he is speaking to his colleagues). He never demands respect because he is a professor. All his students love him and highly respect him because of his character. Regarding the grade composition, it is made up by 10% attendance, 20% main exam (OPEN book/multiple choice), 55% group project, and 15% individual assignment. He also gives you 5% extra credit opportunity at the end of the quarter! 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 your group members), but it's rewarding. As long as you put in your work, you are guaranteed an "A." I really enjoyed his class.
