Comment: *phenomenal* lecturer... HIGHLY recommend taking 120 with Arcak. He gives you great lecture notes, is extremely clear in class, the homeworks are not hard, but make you learn the key concepts adequately. The exams are similar to homeworks in that they don't stretch your knowledge and make you have to do challenging things. I would say that if you know your stuff adequately in this class (i.e. you understand well the main material) then you get an A, no tricks or BS exams like the 61 series. A pretty laid back class after EE20.

Comment: Pros: Straightforward, direct, if you learn what he tells you to learn there will be no surprises, kind and respectful to students Cons: Lectures straight from the book nothing more, can get boring, seems to treat each lecture as a trial he and the class must get through together, exams are too easy placing emphasis on not making small mistakes, just not that interesting of a class

Comment: Arcak is the simplest, most direct, and coherent professor at Berkeley, hands down. Take his class and you'll walk out a better man/woman.

Comment: Lecture is dry and unnecessary because lecture notes are just as detailed. Homework is easy, exams are easy.
