Fun and educational! A sense of humor goes a long way.
Great course to help understand principles of inductive reasoning; recommended!
I really enjoyed this class! Walter is a great professor and I enjoy his lectures and explanations that he offers.
Fun and interesting! I'm debating a career change to either Computer Science or Law, so this is a great mental warm up for studying either.
