Comment:
Amazing prof, really down to Earth and cares a lot about his students' success. Lectures were very engaging, and Prof. Adve effectively created an environment where students felt comfortable to ask questions. Homework was designed with a good difficulty; it reinforced concepts while not being overly hard. Exams were fair, but had to work fast.

Comment:
He gives way too much work for his class, is a very hard grader, gave two midterms, ended up with a crappy grade. Equivalent effort would have resulted in passing two other courses with an A+.

Professor Adve is an amazing lecturer and was one of the most inspiring reasons why I later went in depth into Communications and Control Systems in my undergrade career. You will not regret being in his class!

Comment:
This prof is great and made Comm. sys a real joy to learn. Likes to make sure students understand the material. He's pretty funny although most of ppl are too slow to pick up on his subtle jokes. Book is followed closely, but doesn't have everything, GO TO CLASS. For comparison, Adve writes better notes than Kschichang, but both are still good.

Prepare for a heavy dose of "Ok, Ok..." and "Shift to the Right, Shift to the Left..."

Comment:
Well-paced in lectures, and has excellent control of the audience. He's very organized, although he could've done a bit more to keep the class interesting in discrete Fourier transform. That sucked. Excellent prof, but the EXAM WAS DIFFICULT!! And did I mention the exam was difficult??

Comment:
Extremely clear, well paced prof. His decent sense of humor also helps. You really can't ask for much more. On a subjective note, I found the actual course content itself to be terribly boring, but that's not his fault... just my bad luck for having to take a course in which I have no intrinsic interest.

One of the best profs in engineering. Gives very intuitive explanations of the material plus he's funny. We need more profs like him in engineering.
