Comment: He was a bit hard to understand at first with his accent, but turns out he was a pretty chill guy. If you listen to carefully to his lectures he'll tell you what's on the test, but he won't blatantly tell you. He will hint at it. ex: If he does the same problem TWICE in class, and it's a relatively involved problem, chances are it's on the test. Most people didn't pick up on that, so that's why you'll hear horror stories about 1B, but if you pay attention, work hard, and go to OH you'll do well.

Comment: The first exam was tricky. The other two, weren't too bad. Each problem seemed to have a trick, but just redoing select problems from the hw was enough. Also put example problems from class on the midterm and final (actually he put the same one because kids didn't go to class and weren't able to figure it out the first time). Sometimes a tid bit boring, but overall future math classes made me wish I was back in his.

Comment: Absolutely amazing prof for 104. Rigorous, demanding, and clear. Too bad he's not at Berkeley anymore...
