<p>Hey, I had a question about this class. I'm signed up to take it in the Fall.</p>

<p>I heard that the class is about using matlab. I was wondering, is matlab something I need to buy? and if so, where can i purchase it? (cal student store?)</p>


<p>I just took E7 in the spring, and I think buying Matlab is best, unless you have a lot of time to go to the open computer labs. The assignments take at least 5 hours (some of mine took over 10) so it was nice to be able to work on them whenever and where ever i wanted to...but you don't absolutely have to buy it since it's provided on the school computers.
You can purchase it at the cal student store...i think it was around $90.</p>
