Comments on the course

Incredibly dry course but also extremely difficult. Patrice and Alan both being as cryptic as possible and making it impossible to get TA help. Assignments are so long, easily 15+ hours each with incredibly complex questions, page long proofs, and very strict marking. Also a brutal midterm with an average below 40. It's a good course for interviews but if you don't need to take it avoid it like the plague.

Advice

Start assignments early, take in a light semester with another course that gives you the will to live.

Comments on the course

His slides are very good. His lectures are pretty exdee- loud keyboard typing, old ipod earbuds are part of the character. The course content is extremely useful but quite difficult, hard work is required
