Comment: Funny guy! He taught at a slow pace but definitely not boring. The material was tough for newbies so he spent the necessary time to digest it in lecture. Assignments were too easy and didnt help for exams too much.

Comment: Tse was a pretty solid professor when he lectured. He is extremely knowledgable and outright brilliant. He makes a lot of jokes in lecture, and does a pretty good job of keeping the class entertained, while presenting the material well. Too bad he left.

Comment: great professor! this was the second time i took this class and he and the class itself was so much better than when babak taught it. also, david taught a lot more applications based topics, which was actually relevant in my internship.

Comment: He's very, very funny. Good lecturer if you're used to Chinese accents. Homework is straightforward and pretty simple. The class was pretty confusing at first and requires you to know some basic math concepts beforehand or you'll have to catch up. The one caveat was we had legit 24 page final... way too long.

Comment: The homeworks, the labs, the projects, and the exams were all completely unrelated in this class. After a whole semester, I don't feel like I learned anything other than 4-5 mathematical formulas. The professor would introduce a concept in lecture, but he would never fully explain it. The homeworks would ask questions on those concepts that we didn't know how to apply. The labs had no relation whatsoever to anything that was being taught. The test questions were on things that we had no idea how to solve. One of the worst classes I've taken at Berkeley.

Comment: I am not sure what's going on with this class. They don't teach any of the two topic well (probability and discrete math). Berkeley should stop offering this class and change the requirement to one semester of discrete math and one semester of probability.
