Comment:
He's a decent professor and his lectures and notes are fairly easy to understand. Would strongly advise using Youtube to better understand some complex topics that are taught in this class. The midterm and exam format are almost identical to the sample exams he posts, plus you get a cheat sheet.

Comment:
His lectures r extremely confusing. Very theory heavy. I was only able to learn the material through his TA. He does allow a double sided cheat sheet on the midterm (which is EXTREMELY similar to the past midterms he posts), so the class was easy in that sense. However, it was still a really confusing class & i dont feel like i learned much.

He's a nice guy - and he's a famous prof. I really liked him - though labs are a bit too hard (same with his exam)

Danziger is the man... You are allowed to have a cheat sheet on mid-term and final exam, make sure you write a step by step solution to all the previous years tests on that sheet...

Onwards Gimli! He knows his material well and made the class entertaining to say the least, despite the fact that some classes were at 8 a.m. Very nice and approachable person for extra help and has a nerdy kind of humour, which I did appreciate and made the class more enjoyable. A good guy to stick with. You won't be disappointed.

He's a really cool guy. He seems really into the stuff he teaches especially in the morning when he has 3-4 coffees. There are some tough parts in this course, but he makes things much more clearer if you ask him and do the work. Do lab work and read slides before lectures and labs so you know what the topics about.

He can talk at length about a complex question. Its a course you really need to keep up in for homework. He looks like a Russian spy, but hes got an english accent which is quite endearing. Hes quite willing to help when you ask for it also.

Smart Prof who sometimes makes a few too many mistakes on the board. Still, he instills students with the confidence that he knows his subject matter very well. Made a difficult course of Graph Theory as painless as possible. Very good mid term exam, and very flexible with deadlines. Overall, a good prof for higher level math requirement. 4/5 :)

Best prof I have this semester for sure. He seems to love what he teaches and teaches it well. Makes the whole content very interesting. Articulates well, speaks clearly and body language is suited. Very good prof, hope to one day be half as knowledgeable as him. Cool scientist look :).

Good professor, teaches well. Sometimes he'll get so involved in the theory of his own lectures that he forgets he's teaching and those moments almost feel like your front row, center at a new screening of "A Beautiful Mind" recast with Danziger as lead. And yes, the "Gimli" look is very much "in" this season.

I would suggest staying away from his lectures since they're almost all theory that you can just as easily pick up from reading the textbook. If you do go, just copy a couple of the examples and you'll be fine. He was an OK prof overall, but the course was pretty wack at the end. Handouts were hard to understand and few solutions were given.
