I did very well in this class. It is very methodical. However, the workload required by Lu in this class is ridiculous. He assigns homeworks that require the use of MATLAB, making each assignment around 30 pages long. Also, Lu seemed to enjoy assigning these sort of homeworks even during week 10 of the quarter.
Lu is easily the worst professor I had at UCLA. Keep in mind I did very well in this course, but I taught myself the material COMPLETELY ON MY OWN. Lu cancelled class for 3 weeks of the quarter, yet expected us to self-teach the material in his absence. During week 10, Lu left the country, cancelled the final lecture of the class right before the final exam, and told us to study the last chapter of the book on our own. Absolutely unacceptable. The TAs were extremely confused what he would test us on for the final exam. He refused to answer emails about certain topics, and did not show up to his office hours because he was out of town most of the time. I would say avoid this professor, but you have no choice if he teaches 106 the year you have to take. Horrible, horrible professor who made a class that much more difficult by making you self-study. Do every problem in the book, or at least the ones that are applicable and you will do fine on the exams (which have averages in the 50s).
If you're scared, you should be.
