Furlanetto is the type of professor that give privileges to some students according to ethnicity or race. If you are white you don't to do that much to get A, if you are Hispanic or Latino you have to more than whites to get a B+. I do not recommend Hispanics to take a class with furlanetto if it is not required.
Winter 2019 - I really loved this class honestly and I tried so hard but still ended up getting a B+. But that all comes down to my performance and less about where the professor's falling short. The weekly homeworks are doable but sometimes very confusing but then again TA's office hours would be a huge help which I could never wake up early enough to attend even though it was at 1pm on a wednesday. honestly he's such a great accomplished funny professor and i would've done better in this class if i wasn't battling some other issues. everything draws from the lecture, no more no less so you wouldn't have to go home read some textbook and learn things yourself. i think this class also helped me develop a good habit of taking lecture notes and reviewing my notes. although the material is still pretty complex and takes a while to really digest the information and understand the why and how. maybe its not even necessary to get a deep understanding but i tried.
