One of my most enjoyable university courses. Topics are interesting and engaging. The professor randomly gave 'bonus marks to final grade'. My midterm was a 72% but when he reviewed it with me, he bumped me to a 90%. I suggest if you go to classes, go EARLY cuz classes are usually packed with students cause the class is that popular.
