Comment :
This year the course had new professors and the material was different than previous years. The material is really interesting and I have used a lot of it in my everyday life. It's also a good course to have if you plan on working in the FFN field. Beware of Goff teaching the lectures. He's a really nice guy but lacks the ability to keep students engaged. I often found myself not paying attention to him during the lectures. I did okay on the midterm but many people either did really terrible on it or failed. The midterm and the exam are long answer questions. The midterm I felt really rushed and wasn't able to answer all the question as throughly as I would have liked to. For the final, ample time was given. If your good at writing long answer questions and happen to provide the points they're looking for you can do well in this course. I wouldn't say this course is as easy as it previously was.
