Comments on the course

Nice professor.

Advice

Recommend going to professor's office hours as he explains there the labs making it easier to understand the thinking process. Textbooks do not help much, it is best to practice the labs. Heavy course and labs feel hard when one doesn't understand. Professor bell curves a bit. He teaches section Z but best chance to pass this course is taking it with him.

Comments on the course

The course is poorly designed. It FORCES you to self-study. This is entirely the fault of Hamzeh Roumani, who was the proponent of "learning-by-doing". The lab TAs were basically unreachable outside of the lab session, so we were basically on our own to figure out the labs. The RISC-V parts are easiest to get marks in. Verilog is veri-painful, and the pre-labs don't come with answers so you MUST figure it out, or you won't even be able to do the in-class labs.

Course Content

Low-level assembly language, and hardware description language.

Comments on the professor

Nice, but not good at lecturing.

Advice

I wish I knew how much self-study was required, ESPECIALLY for the Verilog part of the course.

Comments on the course

Great Prof but the course material is challenging! Probably the hardest course I've taken in second year so far.

Advice

Keep up with the class and do all the pre-labs to better your chances of knowing what's going on
