This class was tough.
The course did not have a clear curriculum. The teaching style of the professor required students to learn independently because class time was spent on group activities. Overall, the class was extremely challenging because there was no clear guidelines in place. Most of the material was learned outside of the class room, and class time was not used efficiently.
The lecture was not enjoyable, but lab was extremely interesting. During lab students had to create their own experiments using their background knowledge. This lab truly put your skills to the test by allowing you to have full control of the experiment. It was not your average follow the rules and get some result type of lab. In this lab you made the rules and had full control of everything, which made it very enjoyable.

Advice for students:
The most important advice I have for students is to attend office hours. Furthermore, go to the course center for help on the homework. There you will be able to rely on other students and the teaching assistants. Moreover, you will be able to ask any questions you have from the online reading assignments. Of course, this can be very difficult because the times for the course center might conflict with other classes. Overall, just be willing to spend a lot of extra time on this course and ask for help when needed.
