Lu lectures off powerpoint slides the entire time besides a few minutes when he goes over examples on the board. If you prefer slides then he's the prof to take. However, if you're more interactive and like it when the prof lectures with the blackboard, don't take him. He goes pretty quickly through his slides and much too quickly to actually take good notes. Plus, when he actually does write things out on the board, his diagrams are hard to understand mostly because they are too messy.
Anyway, only half the class attends lecture and a lot of the ones who do attend fall asleep. I went to almost all of his lectures, yet I usually come out of class thinking that I didn't learn very much. The homework is pretty tedious and my TA was pretty horrible so I didn't really enjoy it. However, the programming projects were not that bad and you get a partner to lighten the work load. It's definitely one of the easier CS classes -- I just wish Lu didn't lecture off powerpoints so that I don't have to go home and read the book every time I leave lecture.

Most of the content of this class and all of the course projects are from the professor's lab's previous and ongoing research work. To anyone that is going to take this class, wish you good luck on the exams and the project. The homework and exams are multiple choices and several design questions.
