Extremely well-organized course that was really enjoyable! Constantly looked forward to attending this course and the profs are extremely knowledgeable. Requires students to consistently keep up with course content in preparation for weekly quizzes.

I think this was a really fun course to take, it is very helpful if you are planning to apply for PNB specialization starting on second year.

This course is amazing and I 1000% recommend to anyone who is even slightly thinking of taking it!! The profs are super entertaining, helpful, and easy going. It’s a bird course although the final is worth 50% (but with extra participation you can bring it down to 40%) . The content itself is quite interesting which makes it easier to study for. Weekly quizzes allow for collaboration + open book. The course is very very well organized. One lecture, one tutorial and one module per week. Because of remote learning they changed the final from being proctored to being open book. Everyone I know that’s taken the course has loved it and left with no complaints.

Weekly quizzes had to be done in groups so it’s good to make friend and form study groups. As long as you do the modules over the weekends, the iclickers are simple (and enough points allows you to drop your lowest quizzes) and tutorial participations marks are easy. Online midterm as well, which is worth 5%.
