Your Best Class at UCLA

therealisttherealist Posts: 457Registered User Member
what was the best class that you took at UCLA?

regardless of workload or how easy or hard it was. just that you thought it was the most interesting or useful to you. And does that professor teach here anymore?

I'm just finding electives that I can take, so any input is appreciated

    I think my favorites so far have been:
    - History 100 (it's sort of a class on the philosophy of history and how studying history became a profession) with Professor Hunt (who is an AMAZING lecturer, but I think she mostly teaches grad students)
    - Geography 5 (it's a GE class, but the material is actually really interesting) with Professor Gillespie (he's very entertaining but extremely liberal, just as a warning to any die-hard conservatives out there)
    - I haven't had a chance to take a class with him yet, but I've also heard that any history class taught by Professor Ruiz is phenomenal

    CS32 with Carey Nachenberg.
    - every Winter I believe

    Math 31B/32A with Dr. Park.
    - No :(

    ^ Park was awesome and pretty easy. Period.

    I did take him right after he got his Ph.D though.

    ^ park gave review/sample exams that looked just like exams with a change in numbers :D

    Corbin's class was very fun, no need to study as well since everyone fails the exams :)

    There was a question on one of his final exams that he used as an example in a lecture.

    Everyone says Park was easy and I still learned the most from him :D

    For you Phy Sci majors (I know there are a few of you on here), I recommend Phy Sci 155 with Tidball.

    Very experiment/research based, which was a refreshing change from all of the blind memorizing that most life science/phy sci classes require you to do.

    CS32 with Carey - HANDS DOWN.

    best professor at ucla. not only do you learn SO much from him, but he makes every lecture fun and exciting (poptarts, raffle tickets, airgun, stories from college).

    every CS/EE major should take CS32 with him.

    wait, did park leave?
  • TheRageKage12TheRageKage12 Posts: 562Registered User Member
    yeah, my friend was supposed to have him for 32B summer session c, and apparently he transfered to UCI. idk if he's coming back :(

    ravetch. come on, he sings. how can you beat that?
  • MrSpamMrSpam Posts: 1,175Registered User Senior Member
    Park is ridiculously full of himself, but I guess he backs it up. He even posts the student evals that he gets.

    Dr. Frederick Park - Assistant Adjunct Professor

    Math 167 was pretty cool, even though it wasn't very complex. I probably enjoyed that class more than any other class I've taken at UCLA.
  • jiceo1jiceo1 Posts: 390Registered User Member
    Another vote for CS32 with Nachenberg and Physics 1A with Corbin ;)
  • imrightuarewrongimrightuarewrong Posts: 625Registered User Member
    Tie between ee2 w/ candler/ee 10 with briggs/math 32b with kucherenko

    all 3 of those professors did the best job at clearly explaining the material while also making the class somewhat enjoyable imo

    I took cs 32 with nachenberg also, but if you don't really participate a lot then it's not as great, but it was still a good class and well taught.

    Also, if you're going by which class was the most interesting regardless of the professor then I'd have to say anthro 7 so far.
