Ratings for Abbeel, P
Based on 80 ratings for this instructor.
Comment: Abbeal knows his stuff for sure. He delivers lectures well and uses EDX super efficiently. Basically, EVERYTHING is on the website (discussion handouts, discussion solutions, exam prep, etc.). The midterm was hard, and I mean really hard for me. The final turned out to be okay. However, as a professor, he is kind of hard to approach. Sometimes he stumbles purposefully as if he is making some "artificial intelligent" decisions. :)

Comment: A pretty good class (and made me like AI and would like to further pursue it). Assignments are easy, but doing them really helped me understood the concepts (you could also just click random buttons and try all possible combinations, since you can attempt as many times as you want). Exams were hard as hell, but I really enjoyed solving the problems on there because they really tested the understanding way beyond what they taught you.

Comment: Great professor and teaching assistants. Very well-run and organized course. Projects could have been more challenging but overall very useful. Exams were pretty tricky and challenging. Overall this course was a very satisfying experience.

Comment: Pretty good lecturer and he was very quick with feedback. Course staff was great as well. However exams weren't designed the best, with unfair reward/punishment on certain problems (e.g. a single problem with 5-10%, multiple choice, with no possibility of getting credit for work shown). In general a cool, passionate lecturer though.
