Quite a cool subject, Haskell is a really interesting language, though rare in practice. I would say this subject was more enjoyable than useful. Definitely got me thinking a different way about programming and CS generally - maybe better for students aiming to go into research rather than industry. Note that this subject focuses pretty much entirely on code and conceptual understanding isn't really tested.

Peter Stuckey is a terrible teacher.

Use books for programming learning, the course is fast paced and if you don't study from extra material, you might not be able to score good.

It is one of the most fun subjects but a little bit challenging as well. That's because declarative programming languages (Haskell and Prolog) are different from your daily using imperative languages (Java, Python, C, C++). The teacher creates project tasks, and you can't find anything similar, so you have to be creative as well to solve them. Don't leave them until the last day - probably you can't complete them in time. Exams are very similar to the tutorials, so if you can solve them, there is no reason to worry.

This subject mainly teaches Haskell programming and Prolog. These are all functional programming languages. Haskell is actually what Facebook uses, so you might gain something by learning this. Here is my ranking schema(# of !): 1.Prodecural programming! 2.Declarative programming!! 3.OO programming.!!!
