Comment :
This class is useless, there was nothing learned that could be used in future courses. The prof clearly has no interest in the course either as he makes no attempt to make it more interesting. Instead he makes groups present for the entire semester so he doesn't have to come up with a lecture plan, if he does we watch a movie. This course does not relate to the overview AT ALL. Marking was super bias and any feedback was vague. This course has made me want to switch majors.

A lot of people never showed up to lectures and did just fine. A huge number of them were completely pointless, and had nothing to do with the course material. The marking was organized very strangely as well, and involved a lot of group work. Seminars also seemed pointless at times, especially once your group had presented. The course isn't hard, but isn't particularly enjoyable either. It does give you the opportunity to present in front of a large group of people though in first year.
