All Ratings and Reviews for Marianne Louie
She's absolutely "wired" during lecture and goes through slides at a very fast pace. Very meticulous and thorough in covering the material. Homework wasn't too bad in terms of difficulty. Just tweak the in-class example and spend lots of time on it. The tests were long and a bit on the tedious side, but I felt they were fair and very pressed for time. If you want to learn a lot about computer architecture, her class is definitely worth taking.
Professor Louie is an excellent professor. She was meticulous, and clear, and always genuinely concerned about her students understanding the material she was teaching. Computer Architecture can be a bit of a dry subject, so don't expect a lot of fireworks during lecture. However, if you wan't a good, solid professor who's available to help and genuinely concerned about teaching effectively, take Louie.
she's one of best professor's at ucla. she knows her stuff and she teaches it well. i have retained alot of information from her class and have been able to apply it to cs152B and cs111 (memory management). one warning though, she gives out tough finals!
Louie is a great professor.
Her some of her tests are hard, but if you do the hw then they should seem reasonable.
She isn't boring, does examples in class, and knows her stuff.
Overall, I would say one of the best profs. I've had in the cs department.
She's good at explaining material, easy to understand. Although she didn't have much time to do more example due to time limit in summer school. Overall, most people in that class was doing pretty well. Her tests are reasonable if you do your homework and study her notes. Highly recommended!!!
You cannot fall behind in this class! The prof goes over material and slides so quickly that your eyes and brain will swirl. My advice is to go over topics that will be covered before class. Then you can actually follow along w/ her blazingly fast lectures. Her tests are difficult, but do-able. The grading/curve is fair. She's a good prof, but be prepared to work your a-- off.
ps. One thing that bothers me is that i really wished she had better office hours.
Professor Louie is a pretty good professor if you want to learn. First the bad, she doesn't run class well... she'll start talking before we stop chattering, she doesn't control the students that well. But that's okay.
Otherwise though, she knows her stuff... she gives good examples, and although she goes through a lot of material and quickly, I feel as if she teaches the material pretty well. In addition, she does want to students to learn and she responds pretty quickly to e-mail. Her tests I feel are straight forward, similar in style to her HW and examples. It's not really a hard class, you should keep up though, there is A LOT of material. It is sufficient to just study lecture slides, HW and examples, but I honestly read the book too, and I think it helped.
She's great!!! At first it feels like she's going super fast, but you get used to it...She seems to enjoy her job and is definitely there to help her students whenever they need. Very helpful and understanding, not condescending as some professors can be. I wouldn't say she's quite as easy as others have rated her though...But all in all, very highly recommended!
She cares too much, which is a rare thing at UCLA engineering. But sometimes it makes the class slower because she writes down EVERYTHING on the overhead for you to copy.
Her tests were all right, final was a notch harder than I expected, but nothing outrageous. One of the better professors I've had here.
One of the few in the CS department who actually knows about the material in their head. She explains into very detail, which is just what you need for CS151B and preparation for CS152B. Her tests are not hard if you pay attention in class.
Hear this: one guy who's enrolled in another prof's class came to her lectures, as a result he aced all the tests from the other prof.
If you want to learn something and don't want to get burned for unreasonable tests, take her class.
