Slides of all lectures in a single pdf
 
IMHO, consulting 18 sets of slides spanning all the course subjects in order to answer the final exam questions is quite worst than consulting a single pdf file.

So, I merged the 18 sets of slides of LFD into a single pdf file with about 10 MB. I can make it available to the fellow students through Dropbox, in case Professor Yaser agrees. I'll delete the file after the final deadline if needed.

So, I wait for a permission from Prof. Yaser.

EDIT: Prof. Yaser kindly accepted the proposal (see reply below). So there are two links, with or without bookmarks. Obviously the one with bookmarks (the bold one) is much more useful :-)

PPS: Keith (see message below) made a smaller pdf with quite a lot more bookmarks than the ones in my version.

Thank you. You have my permission.

I did the same thing and added bookmarks to all of the outline topics and review pages. I also reduced the file size to 6,739kb using pdf optimizer. I find it very useful! My version is here http://ivyriver.net/Learning_from_Da...d_Lectures.pdf

Nice work! There are also some additional .pdf files available in the forum.

Dear Prof. Yaser,

Thank you very much. I posted the links as an edit of the original message. It took me some time to craft a perl script that merges the 18 lectures with bookmarks, which is a more handy format.

Kind Regards.

Great document. Your bookmarks are much more comprehensive than those in the pdf I crafted.

Thanks.

Thanks Tony. you got permission to do this while I was discouraged by the official statement about course materials and did not ask. I happen to have Acrobat Pro, no code needed.
