Discrete is hard and Sugihara makes it even harder. I heard the other professor is hard too so you just gotta choose the lesser of two evils lol

Learned a lot from this class, but you definitely need to put the time and work to try to understand the topics taught in this course. Overall, I feel like I became better at understanding pseudocode and understand a lot more math terms. GO TO every class for the extra credit points , and ace the first two tests which are easier than the last two.

Alright I'' give this professor the benefit of the doubt, he's not all bad. I only say that because I took another professor for this course and she's 10x worse. This guy is confusing, but he cares. Trust me when I say I did bad on this class on my own. But he could tell that I really tried, and ended up giving me a passing grade.

Comment:
This professor is super difficult. Go to every class, and try to get every single extra credit point he gives out by going up because you will need it in the end (He gives around 10 points/100 if you get every single one). The class is graded purely on tests, so you definitely have to take them seriously. No homework due though. Hard to understand.

Comment:
Notes are allowed on exams but honestly barely used them, they're extremely difficult. Uses his own lecture notes, which are very confusing, and he doesn't go by the book. He's willing to help but the material is just too hard. His heavy accent doesn't help either. Avoid because passing is going to take a miracle.

Sugihara is very knowledgeable in the subject but his material is way 1000% harder than all the other ICS 141/241 professors. He has a thick accent which makes it hard to understand him. Avoid him like the plague.

He's giving a lot more work to compesate for the lack of teaching , if you ask others that have taken the same class with another professor. They have no idea what you're going over and wonder why you aren't going over core topics.

46 percent failed this class and 51 percent is passing C grade. He'll assume you know calculus and gives problems that are harder on the exams than what was covered.

He'll take something that'll take 5 minutes to learn on youtube, then add some twisted complexity that you'll never find on google or any textbook. He also doesn't use a text book but, if you ask him for help on a question. He'll explain it to you in sudo code instead of explaining the logic and process. He goes over material not normally covere

Sugihara makes this already difficult class more difficult. He has a strong accent and exams that are too difficult. I approached him a few times with questions and got answers like "huh, you should remember that from ICS 1 4 1". He does have a huge curve, and tons of extra credits. Just go up everyday. He changed pop-quizes to EC in my class.

An extremely difficult professor. Lectures are extremely difficult to follow, notes are extremely difficult to decipher. He doesn't give out much homework, and tests are short but have very difficult questions. Doesn't offer much in terms of assistance either. Avoid if you can.

Comment:
This teacher is horrible! He has a heavy japanese accent. He does not use the book, he makes you read these lecture notes he posted himself. These notes are vague and hard to understand. It's like for people that already understand logic based math. No hw. 4 exams; all of them 5 questions each but they are extremely hard. Do not take his class!

To pass this class is like finding a needle in a haystack. You really have to concentrate! The material is difficult to grasp, and there is no easy way around it. You have to work for your grade. No HW, but 4 exams (includes final) determines your fate. You must apply yourself and take the initiative to study and do problems on your own. Good luck.
