I was excited to take this class going into it, as the content in it has the potential to be very interesting, but my experience in it was underwhelming. You can tell Professor Feyten is very passionate about what she is teaching, and but it is unfortunately conveyed through a fast paced lecture, where I take away very little about the material for the week. Exams are take home which is nice, but she looks for very specific words in your answers so it can be tough to earn all credit for question. It was one homework assignment every week, so there is not a lot of time required outside of class. However, most of my learning of the material happened while doing the homework, not in lecture. Overall I did enjoy this class, and would recommend it as a solid introductory class.

This class was fine overall but professor Felten was not my favorite. She seemed to overcomplicate many concepts in lecture and the exams questions were vague yet she grades them harshly. Most of my exam question responses started with "I agree but..." and after going to office hours, everyone there was only from the Feyten class, asking the same questions to which the TA's did not understand what Feyten wanted.

The discussions we had every wednesday were pointless, and the material we had to pre-read for the discussions could be long and boring. The tests weren't hard, just long but they were open note. Prof spoke rlly fast
