The professor is very organized. I mostly relied on the class notes to help with studying for quizzes and tests. The class is very theoretical and proof-based. I recommend you attend class at the scheduled time in order to not fall behind, but relying on the lecture recordings does not make a difference.

The homework was worth 10% of your grade and it is based on completion. It was very long, but the TA's helped with solving some of the problems. The professor provides partial solutions to the homework after the due date. The homework was the best source of practicing the material and studying for the quizzes and tests.
The weekly quizzes were difficult, but if you fully understood the homework, then they were doable. (some of the questions on the homework were difficult though).
I felt the Midterms were much easier than the Final. Personally, the Midterms and the Final took a while to complete.
Overall, the class is very organized. He is willing to answer any questions you have and the class requires you to critically think.

Different teaching styles work for different students... I personally didn't love the way this professor structured the class, but I think he is actually a good teacher. You have the security of knowing that if you go to all lectures, do all the work, and stay on top of everything you will do well in his class. I prefer a class that is less structured, with less homework, and more of a work independently to learn the material environment. I think I may be the rarity in this sense, so I do think many students would enjoy having him as a professor. Be prepared for a lot of homework, but you likely also won't need to do much extra studying aside from the homework, which he grades on completion. He also had a quiz once a week and I found that the quizzes were not easy, while they do account for a large part of your grade, so be sure to study for those. He is helpful at explaining the material and especially I give him kudos for being so organized. It was very easy to navigate back through his lecture notes to find what you were looking for, which is much appreciated in the remote learning environment.
