Comment: He is hard to follow and his lectures are very detailed, but this makes for less book reading. His problem sets were tough, but fair and helped prepare for the midterm. His midterms are usually tough, but try to find an old one so you can see what he tests on. The types of problems he uses are the same every year.

Comment: It's a bit difficult to understand his accent. (Think of a typical Asian Dad accent.) He is clearly knowledgeable about the information. But at the same time, he doesn't really explain things well. It seems as if he bulldozes quickly through the concept, and then follows up by asking, "Any questions?" I'm pretty sure most of the class has to end up asking their GSI's for better explanations and a more thorough, slower run-through. The exam was a little tricky.

Comment: Super hard exams and hard to understand. He cares a lot about his work but is subtly disrespectful to students.
