IPEC0304 with Natalie Chwaliszlast month

Do not take this class with Chwalisz. She is a terrible presenter and the lectures get incredibly boring. She tries to turn the class into a discussion quite often, but she is not good at inviting students to talk and it ends up being a very quiet class. She also isn't very nice. It takes a lot to get an answer out of her, even for simple things. During office hours, she is vague and unhelpful the entire time. Anytime you attempt to talk to her outside of class, it always seems like she is disinterested and focused on other things.

Obie is very knowledgeable of the subject, and his passion shows up in his teaching, although he can be awkward at times. He makes resources very available, and has the most organized canvas page I've ever seen. Showing up to class is not mandatory, but the fast-paced nature means you can miss a lot if you don't go. Also, what he teaches in class is exactly what is on the exams, so if you show up and take notes you should do well.

I honestly cannot tell if the course content itself is hard or if the lectures make it confusing. The small sections are honestly the most helpful, the Problem sets take a lot of time so make sure to account for that when scheduling, the exams are tough but the curve is a lifesaver. Rough time but not terrible terrible, very do-able.
