Comment: You don't really need the readings, but do all the lectures and the IDs. Overall, his lectures are really bad.

Comment: He's really enthusiastic, but he's also one of those terrible professors whose goal is for the class to average at a C for the final grade. Like, actually, he told my GSI that he wanted everyone in the class to get around a C--which most of us did. So, you know, if you plan on going to grad school, maybe you should avoid him.

Comment: Alright class. Pretty bad lecturer. Not able to use computer's during class. If I didn't have DSP notes, I honestly don't know how I would have done well in the class. Class average for the midterm was disturbingly low, but I got a really good grade and didn't think it was hard at all. Just know how to write good ID's for exams and memorize the list that they give you ahead of time. Lecture's aren't really that necessary to go to if you want to do well. Attend section and establish a good relationship with your GSI, Richard Ashcroft was mine and he's really really great.

Comment: Citrin is a very smart guy. However, he has trouble keeping his students awake. Try not to sleep in lecture. Attending lecture is not necessary to do well in the class; pay attention in section and do not fall behind on the readings. His exams are have been quite fair.
