Comment:
Worst experience in McGill University ever! The assignments are very very hard and overloaded. And you are expected to finish all by your own. The worst is there is no TA and every time if you ask the professor Tal, she won't care at all. She won't spend time with you and answer your questions! Also the lecture is monotonic and difficult!

Comment:
Prof Arbel is a very caring and a great person at heart. When it comes to 415, the course is structured so poorly. Slides are full of information with very little understood on your own if you miss class. Assignments are hard and none of the actual algorithms are taught in class. thats where most of the grades are. she made me DISLIKE comp vis.

Professor Arbel is a great professor and really cares about her students. She is clearly passionate about what she is teaching. The assignments are not hard but they are very long.

Professor Arbel is now one of my favorite profs at McGill. She is very well spoken and her lectures are very captivating. The assignments are fairly time consuming but very fun to do. I highly recommend taking ECSE415 with prof Arbel.

Can easily tell that she puts minimal effort in making this course. Slides are taken directly from textbook (full of random images with little explanation) , tutorials are source code that can be found online. Course material is really interesting but not a good instructor overall.

I just love this prof! Very clear explanation, very concern about the students, and overall, very nice! Exam is quite hard, but if study well from the slides, A is not impossible.

Her exam questions are numerous. If you don't read the course notes carefully for at least once, then there will no garantee for you to pass this class because the weight of materials is just humanly impossible to start from stratch and complet it within a short time.

Her exam questions are numerous but not difficult. You should be able to at least at an B+ if you have read all the slides carefully for at least once.

the worst teacher in the planet. not very smart though. The course is totally not exciting. Better choose Lowther. He is far better than her. She doesn't know what she is explaining. A machine that speaks engineering language

Comment:
She doesn't really yell, it's just that she tries to make the class too interactive... I mean, it's early in the morning, we want to be able to sleep... She should make the lectures harder, and the test easier, or do more examples.
