Comment :
I did not enjoy this course and dropped it by week 4 because I found the prof very frustrating. The assignments snowballed, i.e. if your presentation was in week 1, it was on assignment 1, if it was in week 6, it was one assignments 1-6 (which I thought was really unfair). He also made some sexist remarks in the first week of class which tarnished my view of him, though I don't think he did so maliciously. I really wanted to take this course and have since read the textbook on my own, but I wouldn't recommend taking a class with a prof who has to ask the class twice if he already handed something out because he can't remember.
