Statistics for Engineers
He started off the quarter at an extremely slow pace, spending weeks reviewing the basic material that was pretty much a repeat of EE131A or equivalent probability courses. This caused him to go waaay too fast when covering the new concepts later on, in order to make up for lost time. You get no more out of the lectures than if you were to stay at home reading the textbook, and to top it all off the TA was not helpful at all either. Take at your own risk.
I found this to be one of the easier courses I have taken at UCLA, and I did not find some of the previous posts about Professor Sanchez to be true at all. To the contrary, I found her to be an excellent professor. I did not find her difficult to understand or follow at all. She was very concerned about students' progress in the class and I always found her willing to help and take the time to answer my questions. Exams were straight forward and similar to the homework and all of the material we covered in class could easily be found in the book. Homework was also usually out of the book and the TA goes over similar problems in the discussion section. I think what is actually going on here is statistics is the highest "math class" the school requires of non math and science majors. If you are from north campus, you will only find the the subject difficult because you probably just don't like math or don't have much experience in it. If you're from south campus, you should find this to be one of the easier courses you will take. All in all, I'd say she's an excellent professor.
Xu was a pretty chill teacher and was especially easy for those who took AP Statistics in high school. It doesn't matter if you were very good at it, because just being familiar with it all makes this class seem like a quarter long review session. The only annoyance was that he would take attendance during lecture to try to encourage you to come.. And with it 3 times a week, that sort of is annoying at times. Regardless, I managed to go maybe 65% of the time out of laziness or wanting to booze it up and I still did very well. I did the homeworks after going to discussion (if Tiffany is your TA, she will show you how to do everything). Got a little above average on the midterm (avg: 38/50). Don't know how I did on the final, but it was good enough. Final grade: A. Chill, chill, chill chill chill
