Comment: I don't have anything bad to say about Elad. He is a fine professor and presented the required material well. EE16a however as a class is s**t. really Elad deserves about an 80 and EE16a deserves -2. This was the most useless class i have ever taken that thoroughly wasted my time. It is really just 20% a dumbed down version of circuits and 80% a review of also dumbed down linear algebra with the material already known by over half of the class leading to high averages on mt 1. mt2 and the final both had lower averages as people stopped caring about the class as well as the fact that both were rather long and drawn out. I really mean what evil bastard makes you invert a 4X4 matrix by hand on a timed exam multiple times?Just one incredibly useless class that had incredibly long homework (6 problems with parts a through m) and mandatory self grading of homework and lecture attendance points as well as homework to redo both midterms before any solutions released and not only the missed problems but all 20 problems on the damn exam. Very badly planned class that is incredibly biased towards ee freshman as if unaware that 60% of the class was not an ee freshman. I feel hatred towards ee16a. As mentioned above i direct very little of the blame for this on Elad and feel ambivalent toward him as he did seem to be a good professor and i would not be opposed to having him in any other class besides this one.

Comment: THE best EE prof and one of the best overall profs I've ever had. A good lecturer, asks plenty of questions to make sure we understand. He is also very inviting to student questions, even if your question ends up being dumb or somewhat irrelevant, he answers it nicely. Constantly enthusiastic. His tests, hw, and projects are all fair. HW can be pretty difficult at times but manageable if you go to office hours at all. I would definitely take any relevant class he's teaching

Comment: Very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Extremely helpful in office hours - he'll walk you through the problem, and pretty much knows when you actually know the answer but you're not sure about it. Exams could be tricky but were fair, and the homework was challenging but fair. The project was time consuming and challenging, but very interesting an open ended.
