Quarter Taken: N/A Submitted Jan. 4, 2015 Grade Received: N/A

The ratings are spot on: mediocre across the board. I didn't mind too much, since I didn't care about the material very much. He would randomly leave the lectures to be taught by either the TA or a guest lecturer, and quality-wise it didn't really matter.

The TA matters a lot for the projects, since he grades them exclusively (and they are worth a lot of your grade), and ours was an asshole. Sorry to the people that demoed their project to him. Luckily it was too much work for one person, so I got to demo to someone with a soul.

I got an A.
I did study hard for the midterm and the final though. Used the textbook and the TA Xiao Li was a beast.
Without him i was failing the class.
Projects are doable.Project 2 took time but we could work with two partners(total 3 in a team)

Lectures were useless, barely went. This is coming from a student who never misses lectures unless something imp is happening. tl dr do not go to his lectures, they suck and you wont learn anything.

Material isnt too bad and i am interested in networking. My recommendation is to take it with Gerla unless you want expand your knowledge in the field. I had a heavy workload and this class worked out well in that scheme of things.

Summary : Ok/Bad Prof, Kick ass TA(Xiao Li), Fun projects, fair finals. Study for it/Put in effort u will get a good grade.

Easy A. Never went to lecture. Seriously, this class is completely run by TAs.
The exams are written by TAs, and the actual class doesn't expand on anything not present in the slides/book.
Xiao Li was the best TA!
