Comment :
Great course. The textbook is useful but really expensive. There are a lot of interesting topics covered in this class. Talk to the prof before writing the papers to ask for his opinion on what you want to write about and you'll do well as long as you're not a complete idiot. Make sure you actually take your time when doing your presentations. Be creative, and make sure your slides aren't too cluttered. There is such thing as too much information.
