At best, Dr. Clubb is mediocre. The only reason he has been getting good reviews is because he hands out grades that are better than expected to a substantial number of people. His grade distribution philosophy is horribly, I stress, HORRIBLY thought out. For ex. if the total work you have done in class is (everything,. i.e. homework, midterm, quizzes, etc.) is out of 100, then the grade distribution will be something like this:
60-80: B
80:81:B+
81:82:A-
83:100: A
He thinks it would be fair to reduce a student's grade points for that subject from 4.0 (i.e. A) to 3.0 (i.e. B) for such a negligible difference in achievement in class. It does not seem to be well thought-out.
Professor Clubb is not a good presenter. His lectures, (and thoughts) are usually too dotted. (You know how some professors make everything they teach perfectly interlinked? Prof. Clubb's lectures can't nearly achieve that.) His tests are identical, in most cases, to those administered in previous years. So if you, like the rest of this school, are not very keen on genuine learning, (which, of course, is fine), then you shall find this class pleasant -- moderate workload, mostly hassle-free. But if you are, like me, constantly looking to be intellectually challenged, intrigued and marvelled by what is being thrown at you, then you shall be truly disappointed with this class.

Random points:
Some questions (especially on the finals) test you on absolutely MEANINGLESS details.
Quizzes administered (3 total, best 2 counted)
2 Midterms, 1 Final
No Homework
Presents lectures through slides.
Is approachable.

In sum, Dr. Clubb is not a great educator. I am confident that Dr. Clubb is an exceptional researcher-- otherwise it is hard to be faculty at UCLA. But ideally, someone who truly cares about teaching should be teaching this intro class.

I've got A in 153A and 153C from Prof. Gober so I felt pretty confident about 153B. But Clubb is most of the most terrible professors at UCLA. He loves testing you on stupid minor details that no one cares about. I dropped the class, avoid.
