Great Intro to the Subject
Many Small Assignments
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Not only was this course a wonderful introduction to the world of programming, the teacher was absolutely incredible. I would recommend Cynthia to anyone looking for a good teacher for programming because she broke every complex problem up into easy to understand language so that the students could easily grasp and reproduce what she did. I did not feel like I was struggling through the material ever because she always made sure that we were all on the same page before moving on.
We started off using raptor which is a visual way to learn to program, then we moved to UML diagrams which were slightly more code oriented, then we moved into actually using java and we learned enough to write some probably more basic programs, but we were programming nonetheless, and we also learned how to search for methods that we could use to implement into our code

Advice for students:
Never skip class. The teacher was most of what made the class easy to understand.
