Took PIC 10A and self-studied for the entire quarter. Avoid this guy and Barbaro if you can - their curve is stupid for an intro class. And beware the noobs who couldn't handle CS 31A and took refuge in this class - they make the class unfair.
I took Ifti for PIC 10A. Honestly, the most miserable class I have ever taken. This class is a prereq for a number of majors, including mine. He was not concerned if anyone in the class learned anything and the majority of the students taking the class were taking it for fun and were experts on the subject. Luckily there is a generous curve. Some friends and I were within the lowest percentage of the class and we still all passed. If you do all the work, you are guaranteed to pass with at least a C. I don't know anyone who has ever failed his class.
The work itself is tedious so be ready for the PIC lab to become your home away from home. His tests are impossible and I had a low F until he finally curved our grades after the final and I passed.
I am taking his PIC 10A this quarter
you dont have to go to the lecture, since he will upload all the lecture ppt and example file to the website
and don't even worry about you will miss something for not attending the lecture, since his lecture is very
confusing and disorganized.
Just stay home, learn the stuff by your own, but definitely go to the TA discussion to learn about the homework
The test is not very challenging, but make sure you are familiar with coding on blank paper and you will be fine
I messed up my first midterm, but just got A for second midterm after understanding his pattern, now let see how the final is tomorrow!
To be honest, the class is very boring, but I won't say he is the worst professor, since
that are many professor in Econ department who are way worse than him.
I am currently taking PIC 10A with this guy. He is the worst professor ever. I ended up learning everything on my own. His lectures and power points are useless. They are straight out of the book and he skips over a lot of important information that ends up being on the tests. He also assigns the same homework from previous PIC professors. Just study on your own and you can pull it off.
