|Unfortunately, the fact that the midterm and final are both open-note lulled me into a false sense of security in this class. I did very poorly on the midterm and this cost me dearly even though I had around a 90 on the labs and the final.|
Here is some advice about this course. Work on the labs in groups since it is faster and it guarantees your code is correct. Next, print the lecture notes BEFORE class and make sure you understand everything. Finally, do not take your time on the exams. The midterm was four pages and I spent way too long on the first three so I left the last one completely blank.
I missed an A- by 0.8% so try to heed my advice. Professor Banes is a nice guy, but his lectures are very boring. Do not be fooled by the grade distribution from 2009 like me, because I think he cracked down on this class a little bit.

|Not a good lecturer. Don't bother showing up to class because it won't help your grade. Quizzes are take-home and he lets you use the internet. Finals are open-note so just print out the powerpoint slides and bring them in. Labs are assigned and graded by the TA. I was lucky to have a good TA who made easy labs and helped anyone who was struggling. Overall I didn't learn anything from this class but it was an easy A.|
