EE109 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A
"Amazing lectures" "Respected by students" "Tests are tough"

If you don't know nothing about micro controllers (like me), EE109 is going to be really hard. However, you will lear A LOT. Get ready to work for the labs, they are very difficult at the beginning since it is all new (for me). Prof Redekopp is awesome, on the other hand I never understood anything of what prof weber was trying to explain.

CSCI 103 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: Not sure yet
"Gives good feedback" "Would take again" "Amazing lectures"

Best teacher I've ever had the pleasure of learning under. Truly cares about whether everyone in the room has understood the concepts. Understands how certain things may be difficult and has the best approach to teaching them properly.

EE109 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A
"Gives good feedback" "There for you"

If you do not know anything about conductors, resistors, etc. you will have to pay close attention in class to keep up. However, Redekopp makes it really simple for you to get to where you need to be. He is extremely helpful during office hours and while you work on your labs in class. The class as a whole is do able just know you have to work it.

CSCI 104 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

After taking 103, I was actually pretty sure I was going to change my major but decided to take 104 to be sure. Redekopp is the reason I'm sticking with CS! Although this class was incredibly difficult, he made a huge effort to make sure all students understood every single concept. He is very personable and truly cares about each student.

CSCI 104 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He's a great teacher and keeps lectures interactive and interesting. Really friendly and available for help. Class itself has extremely heavy workload (15+ hours of programming HW a week) and difficult exams (midterm and final were worth 30% and 40% of grade respectively) but grading curve makes getting at least an A- fairly easy (70% was an A-)

CSCI 104 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

If you thought CSCI 103 was hard, just wait until you take this class. Very hard work and homework are tedious. Professor was helpful but it doesn't matter when it comes to 104 because you are the one who's gonna do all the coding. Please do not major in CS just for the money because you are going to regret it after you take this class.

EE 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

If you haven't gathered as much already, this guy is a complete legend. He makes the material seem like absolute child's-play and has his lectures down to a science. Also, he's really helpful in office hours and is just a super solid guy. Take him at any chance you get.

EE-352 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Great professor. What could have been a very boring "hardware" class turned into one of my favorite classes of college. Good lectures, fair tests, useful coursework, great course reader (which was the only textbook you need). Pay attention, give this man the respect he deserves, and you will leave with a great understanding of low level computing.

EE101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Great guy and amazing professor. Brings a lot of positive energy and intensity to lecture and explains every concept inside and out. Once I had to miss a lecture because I was sick and I was genuinely upset that I couldn't be there. His classes are very challenging but he makes the difficult concepts behind EE and CS fun and clear. 10/10

Doesn't matter what class, everyone should take a class with Redekopp. He is, without a doubt, the best professor at USC. You will learn more than you ever wanted to learn, and he is just an awesome professor. If you put in the work, you can definitely get a good grade. Redekopp is so awesome, that I go out of my way to take every class he teaches

I guess there are already plenty of comments saying "best professor at USC". I will have to agree with that. He brings energy to the whole class, explains things concisely and precisely. HW and Labs can be a little tricky sometimes, but they really help students learn the materials well

Definitely the best professor at USC! I don't know what more can a student expect from a professor! He's clear, interesting, challenging, patient, approachable and humorous. And for those who may wanna know, he's really handsome!!!

Mark Redekopp is awesome. Not only is he clear and easy to understand, but he's also very friendly and down to earth. He manages to take even the most difficult concepts of CS and EE and make them fun and easy to grasp. Viterbi should clone him! Just like somebody said earlier though, if there's a Redekopp class available, TAKE IT.

EE457 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Excellent professor! Explained the concepts well and really took an interest in student learning. Didn't overwhelm you with work either, but still provided enough to understand the material and practice. Also didn't blatantly prefer grad students, and understood best how to convey ideas to undergrads, while still providing us with a challenge.

Why are you even reading these comments? No matter the class, GO REGISTER WITH REDEKOPP! He's the best teacher at USC (that I've had). So helpful, nice, knows a ton about everything, and will look into problems you have that he doesn't know the answer to. Love this guy. People think he is "intense," but they're just used to lazy professors.

CSCI101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Good professor, but a bit extreme. Covered all of the 101 material and then some, and was way ahead of the other 101 classes. He's occasionally helpful during office hours, but his TA was more efficient. Teaching style was more like "here's the assignment, you're on your own". Not the prof you want if you're just testing the waters of CS.

My first EE class, I was once again impressed by his teaching style- always gives second chances after bad tests to everyone, super fair, awesome explanations, and of course, entertaining but challenging. Perfect course.
