Comment: Making homework due every other day was certainly helpful for people to stay on track. The exams were pretty close to the homework but time can be a problem if it's 50 minutes. He's pretty cool and you shouldn't be afraid to go to his office hours. One thing to note is that his class had a final worth 50% of the whole grade and NO CURVE so be careful about that.

Comment: Chopra is alright. I don't think he has taught CEC30 before. He usually teaches grad students. He went mainly by the book which is good I suppose. Homework assignments were due the beginning of each class period, which was pretty nice since it prevents people from procrastinating. Exams were like the homework problems so if you knew how to do the homework, you are set.

Comment: While everyone complained the first day when Chopra had small assignments due every lecture rather than a larger one due weekly, it turned out to be extremely helpful in learning the material (although his one problem per page, single sided only was a huge waste of paper). His exams on the other hand were much lower in quality. The first one was an extreme time crunch, the second one was abnormally easy (causing relative grades to be determined by dumb mistakes rather than being knowledgeable in the material) and the final worth 50% of your grade had several questions very alien compared to anything ever shown in class. Finally a minor quibble but he needs to be more aware of people raising hands.
