    | Would not recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Holmes, while interesting and intelligent, is eccentric and disorganized. He throws a huge amount of dense material at you that includes many of his own theories (not widely accepted). It is very difficult to understand how and what to study, and this course put enormous pressure on me. I later TA'd for the class, and told students to take it easy, because you can ace the exam by studying the last 1 week or so and preparing the right materials (the exam is open book). Also, do not put too much effort into the weekly quizzes because they end up being worth almost nothing. I would recommend taking the class with a professor like Goncalo Monteiro instead, if available. This class is not an optimal use of your time.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the initial classes were interesting and thought-provoking, and Professor Holmes's stories are always fun (he leads a very adventurous life). Some of the students seemed to get more of the class...as far as you can keep up, it is interesting to engage with Professor Holmes.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I TA'd for this class and told students to take it easy, because you can ace the exam by studying the last 1 week or so and preparing the right materials (the exam is open book). Meet the TAs whenever you can. Also, do not put too much effort into the weekly quizzes because they end up being worth almost nothing. I would recommend taking the class with a professor like Goncalo Monteiro instead, if available.
