Quarter: Fall 2017
Grade: A-
Jan. 2, 2018

The way this class was organized was relatively straightforward, which is great when you're first taking a quantum class. The questions on the midterm and final are mostly from concepts already covered, and there's a good balance of the math and conceptual components of the class. Sudip goes into very great detail about the topics and he does genuinely care that every single student understands every topic covered, which is admirable especially in the physics department. One problem I had though was that we moved at a very slow speed. Most of the class was chapter 2 of Griffiths, and then there was a speed round for chapter 3 over the last two weeks, which I would have appreciated if it were more balanced and sped up other parts instead of lingering. Some lectures had quite a bit of overlap with other previous lectures without stating anything new, and it felt like it didn't actually contribute overall. But I am happy to be taking 115B with Sudip. Also the TA Nico is amazing and you should definitely go to his office hours.

This professor is not a very effective teacher. He is not difficult, but he does not present the material in a clear manner. I would recommend other physics majors to look elsewhere if they really want to learn the subject. Regarding lectures, they were all right, but they did not elaborate on the book and did not clarify the difficulties of the material. The homeworks were assigned every week, but they were medium difficulty.
The exams: formulas were given, but sometimes there was just not enough time to finish everything (5~10 extra minutes would have been very useful).
