Comment:
Bad Prof, keeps telling you to follow a set of formula for solving complexity problems. She would rushed to finish her office hour spend with you by telling you to follow her rules. No marks or little marks given to solutions without using her way of solving. Highly disappointed. Never want to take her class anymore.

She doesn't care about her students, not even a bit. Taking the course with her is the worst experience.

Amazing lectures, lots to learn from. All five projects were lots of fun. However the midterm was 25% and the final is 30%, so make sure you go to class and pay attention if you want to do well on those.

She's hands down one of the best professor's I've ever had. She is energetic during lectures and she makes sure we understand the material. I emailed her a few times during weekends asking questions and she always responded within an hour. She really cares about her students! Thanks Professor Ladan for all you are doing for us.

If she just didn't talk and put the lecture notes online it would be better.

She's not a good teacher. You are MUCH better off watching MIT Opencourseware and reading CLRS and skip the lectures as she pretty much rips her slides off from them. Do her past exams as those are pretty representative of what she'll give you and the tutorials are pretty decent to attend as well (The TA is a better teacher than her)

Professor Ladan really cares about her student and tries to create teaching material that will benefit the class. Her lectures are clear and easy to understand. She has a lot of office hours and really wants her students to learn. BUT she is a tough grader and you'll lose alot marks if you dont answer questions in a specific way.

She absolutely kills creativity in her students. Based on her marking scheme in the exam you either solve the questions her way or get zero. A lot of students are frustrated and drawn away from the subject as a result.

In class, she just directly read the content from her unclear PPT. Her making scheme is awful. If the final result is wrong and the most process is right, you only can get 2 out of 15 of this question. Learning algorithm on YouTube maybe better than her lectures.

Great Prof with lots of learning. I am actually using the materials I learned in her class in my internship now�� She said the software engineering is important. and it is. We covered so much and she kept the class interesting and motivated. Much appreciated, Professor Ladan!

Dr. Ladan is one of the best professors in our ECE department. Her lecture are clear and interesting which makes you want to learn more. Her exam are fair and way easier than the course assignments. You really learn something from her after the course finished. She is a real gem of UW, hoping we get more prof like her.
