Winter 2016 - If I could take this class again, I definitely would. Absolute 10/10. Professor Mitchell is awesome, and he really knows his stuff. The material is very interesting, especially the second half of the class I liked learning about the information. As for the class, it can be very easy if you do some basic things. Really pay attention to his lectures and slides, because his explanations are great for understanding the material. He does a good job at making sure the material is understandable, through good presentations and iClicker questions. After the lecture, watch the lecture again (it is podcasted which is great) and really understand the material. The reading questions come straight out of the textbook, so it is a must. The discussion quizzes are not too difficult at all. I created an account just to write a review for this class, because Professor Mitchell is really understanding. I completely slacked off the first half of this class, and I didn't pay attention to any of the lectures or the reading questions. I got a straight up D on the first midterm. Before the final, I talked to Professor Mitchell about this, and he told me that if there is a solid positive trend on the final, he would consider giving me a good grade. I studied really hard for the final, and got a A doing the things I listed above. He gave me an A- in the course. (There are only two exams, so I got a D on the first and like a 95 on the final) The midterms are very straightforward and if you watch the lectures and actually answer the Clicker questions you won't have a problem. Good luck!
