With Prof Ada Hurst - 4 assignments worth 30% altogether, 5 quizzes worth 30% altogether, final exam worth 40%. No textbook. Allowed to bring cheat sheet into exam. Don't miss her lectures, take good notes and you'll get 80%+ for sure

Pretty easy course especially if you have Bing Ran. One of the easiest professors. 4% just for participating in studies. Will alter weighting of midterm, final, will take the best 3 of 4 assignments. I got 50% on the midterm, and just spent 1 day memorizing slides for the final and landed an 87. Just memorize and you'll do fine.
