Comment: The class was well organized. There's no textbook, but the lecture notes are very good. Problem sets prepare you well for exams. Discussion sections are not that helpful. He values class participation so attend lecture as often as possible. There's some math in this course, but nothing too intimidating. He covers everything you need to know early on.

Comment: He is a very enthusiastic professor, and he makes the lectures interesting and easy to understand. The problem sets are sometimes a bit long, but they help with understanding concepts and prepare you for the exams. Make sure to attend lectures because although his lecture notes are posted online, his explanations in class really help with understanding. He explains everything thoroughly in class so that you don't need to look at the textbook.

Comment: Material is super tough, but he does a great job trying to make it fun. He is super clear and an overall great guy/ teacher. Hands down the best professor I have ever had. Go to section and pay attention in class, midterms and finals are hard. Make sure to do well on the problem sets because they are graded and will help your grade. Also, he love participation so participate a lot

Comment: Great professor... Teaches well, Subject isn't that easy to manage, his first midterm was hard but the subsequent exams were manageable. Homework is also a good practice.
