Comment: Took 61BL with Clancy Summer 2013. Professor Clancy was really bad. He didn't lecture well and I rather that there wasn't lecture at all because we only had lecture once per week and my TA taught way better than he did. The labs took so long. My partner and I stayed for 6 hours in lab one day trying to finish lab and homework. You need a good TA for this otherwise you might be screwed because the professor is basically not a professor. I kinda wished I took it with hilfinger because I don't think I really learned much... Overall, horribly organized. There are quizzes every day about the lab/reading the day before too.

Comment: Lab-based format was pretty bad - I really wish I had taken data structures with Hilfinger...

Comment: I really liked how it was lab based as we get more hands on practice with the material but I wish UC-wise was written better and explained more thoroughly
