Great courses specially you are taking it with Margo. Course content is managed well on PrairieLearn. A lot of programming assignments especially the second half of the course.

Systems can be messy but you will learn a lot for sure

well organized. has more work than some other cpsc classses (has quizzes, assignments, pre-lecture videos, inclass assignments…), but very manageable imo

Very well-organized course with most assessments on PrairieLearn. Course content is pretty difficult though.
