Comment: He's a great lecturer. Really interesting material and makes it all seem worth learning. His lectures were much more fascinating than Professor Moran, who teaches the other half of the lectures. Great GSIs too. Straightforward assignments.

Comment: Awesome professor! Easily my favorite so far at Berkeley. Very enthusiastic about the material, always had fantastic prepared lectures, with fascinating tangents and stories from his considerable personal experience. As long as you keep up with the readings (there are a lot) everything will make sense.

Comment: He really seems to care about not only what he teaches but the way he teaches. He is also very approachable so I recommend you go to office hours or ask questions when you can.
