Student reviews of Alan Lee

Review from a student who took CS 352
He is a great professor, but there is too much work in the class. If you love computer architecture and hardware, then this is the professor for you. But if you only have a passing interest, then I reccommend _anyone_ else. He has a passion for this stuff, and that passion translates into a helluva lot of work. Don't take him with a difficult or heavy schedule!
Review from a student who took CS 352
This class is tough. The workload in this course is incredible. Be prepared to read anywhere from 50 to 100 pages between each lecture. Homeworks can be long, most questions coming straight from the textbook, which doesn't clarify the questions much. See the TA often if you can't figure out what it's asking. However, you will learn more than you think. Some of this is basically a review of CS310, or EE136, but it's all new starting with pipelining, caches, and virtual memory. Alan's an awesome prof. He has a great attitude, and his tests are difficult but reasonable. He doesn't ask any questions deliberatly trying to trick you up, and I thought points were given liberally. The grading wasn't as harsh as I expected. The project will take up quite a bit of your time too, be prepared for it. If you truly want to learn something though, Lee's the man to take. Just be prepared to work for it.
Review from a student who took cs 352h
Lee is a good lecturer and keeps class entertaining. He also makes it a point to field questions. The only problem with his class is that he teaches with the mentality that it's the only class you're taking. Therefore, like the other reviews stated, you should be prepared for several hours of reading between classes. Likewise, the homework can really suck sometimes also. Patterson and Hennesy wrote a good book, but their exercises are horribly written. The biggest workload comes from the project. Be prepared to do homework non-stop for the first few weeks to have time for the project towards the latter part of the semester. A good tip is to remember stuff from ee316 and cs310.
