This is a class with great material and terrible structure. Don't expect a syllabus or any explanation of grading criteria or weighting of assignments (just hope that your TA grades your stuff and is a homie). Go to office hours if you can, don't expect replies to emails. The lectures are really interesting. Take good notes. Asking questions in class can be intimidating so be prepared to explain/defend your question.

Workload:

Light reading. Exams are open book!! papers on any topic of your choice (work hard on these). Unclear what the weighting is.
