ECE446 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Prof scrapped the programming hw for Spring07, but it still did not make the class any better. Homework problems were not covered in lectures, and lectures have no focus - Prof just cramp in whatever was on the 7-year old textbook. If you want to learn networking properly, go and take COMS 419 and not waste your time in ECE 446.

ECE 446 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Coming from someone who could handle the programming assignments, I agree that the class was very poorly taught and poorly organized. I didn't learn anything new, yet probably got a mediocre grade. Exams in particular were nowhere near relevant to the course material. Wait - I'm not even sure what the course material was supposed to be!

Wow, this class is the most ridiculous and poorly taught class I've taken at Cornell so far. The projects are ridiculously tough and only a few programming wizards manage to do well. Thanks Prof. Servetto for making my final semester a living hell.

This class = great GPA depressor. Make sure you're a C programming wiz before taking this class, or you will DIE, even though the class doesn't say that C programming is required. Machine problems are poorly explained. Students read 300 lines (in total) of uncommented C code and are supposed to piece the 20 functions together somehow. Good luck

ECE 445 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Very disorganized. I didn't know what's going on with the class. Never clarify project materials until deadline. Didn't have time to study for other exams because of the page due during study break. TA was so hot =P

Machine Problems too vague and unorganized, MPs always given out late, always have bugs in MP given, throws chalks at students, talks on cell phone in class, did not finish teaching course material, instead makes us read 100 page papers in study week.
