The GOOD: Likun Zhu is nice and seems knowledgable. Quizzes/exams are similar to the hw. Seems to want students to succeed. The BAD: struggles to communicate at times. Wastes lectures deriving equations straight out of the book. Not an engaging speaker by any means. OVERALL GRADE: "B-". Not great, …more but he is reasonable and fair. Not a hard prof. less

This class has the potential to be very difficult. Prof Zhu makes it as easy as possible. That being said the exams are very similar to the quizzes which are very similar to the easiest problems of each chapter. Nice prof, if you go to the office hours he can get rather impatient. He seems to care …more about his students. His lectures can be confusing. less

First these guy needs to learn speak English i suggest him 7th grade English courses and some accent training. He is not suited for academic field or any field. I cant understand 90% of what he says, because of which i loose interest in Subject.

He wants his students to succeed, but doesn't seem to put effort into that; he tells students that skip his class to always come to his lectures, but he doesn't take attendance. He also isn't a very engaging speaker hence one reason students skip his lectures. Quiz and exam problems are similar to …more the HW and lecture examples though (thankfully). less

First, his English is pretty bad, will be hard to understand. Doesn't even take some effort to prepare decent slides, just copies and paste's from the text book, which is really terrible. Exams are similar to HW's, which are the most contributing factor towards the final grade. Need to put effort …more in studying from TB to get any knowledge. less

Accent is not that hard to understand. Teaching style is pretty dry. Exams are fair, mostly testing material that you learned in the HW. The structure of his graduate classes put 75% emphasis on project and final exam, so if you mess those up, you're screwed.

Very little homework. Quizzes dont change much year to year. He announces quizzes 1 week in advance. Boring lecturer, but doesnt take attendance. It wont hurt to skip and self study, just pay attention to quiz and exam dates. Helpful during office hours. Not the worst, but not the best

Lectures were very helpful, he basically tells you what will be on tests/quizzes. Exams are very similar to the quizzes, and he posts the quiz answer keys.
