Winter 2023 - Shu Liu is amazing, and is one of my favorite professors at UCLA. Grading Scheme was 50% HW, 15% Midterm, 34% Final, 1% Evaluation Survey at the end of class. You could also drop the Midterm for the Final. HW's were very straightforward and he gives you more than enough time to do them. Exams are very similar to the practice exams. He records lectures, and is very accessible in Office Hours. If you have any coding experience prior to taking his class, you can put in very minimal effort and expect an A. I can't say enough good things about this guy, take his class.
Fall 2023 - Probably the shittest professor I have had in a long time, his lectures are all over the place, the recordings are terrible quality and his tests are absurdly hard. The average for our midterm was a 72%.... with no curve. He does have some good memes tho like his review document which says "Get familiar with the content". But for real don't take this dude unless u haveeee toooo like this man made me seriously consider dropping the specialization in computing even though I breezed through PIC10A,10B-- TLDR -don't take.
