    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course for me was a bit challenging, however, my professor did an amazing job providing numerous resources to his class in regards to better understand programming and creating a logical program in any programming language. What I like best about this course is the open discussion room where I could engage with other fellow classmates on a subject I either needed help with or I could help another fellow classmate if they needed help on a subject I was more familiar with.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course for me was being able to develop problem solving skills in relation to designing computer programs. From this course, I walked away learning how to use my programming development techniques to develop hierarchy charts, flowcharts, and pseudocode to solve common programming problems. Within using these techniques, to name a few, I've learned how to work with arrays and loops within a program, understanding the structure when creating a logical program, how to properly utilize decision symbols within a program, and how to use various modularization techniques when creating a program.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    ALWAYS use the FREE resources that are provided to you by your professor. Outside of just reading the chapters and taking notes, watch videos, go to Google or YouTube and look up programming techniques such as working with arrays and looping and/or file handling and applications. Use the resources that comes with your text book (CD-ROM and web links that are provided in the back cover of the text book). Doing this would make studying so much easier and less tedious and stressful because as you utilize these resources, and depending on how many hours per week you dedicate to studying and doing coursework, you can retain information so much better, which cuts down on excessive notes, and long study hours. So please I cannot stress this enough, use your RESOURCES. There is so much free information out there that will help you to pass this course with flying colors!!!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    He is inaccessible, unwilling to help, does not care whether you understand the material or not, and most importantly does not actually teach. His power points are verbatim copied out of the book you use. He allows one page of notes when taking exams.

    Course highlights:

    You learn about functions, loops, file input and output, arrays, statements, and if/else statements.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not take it online, and please do everything you can to find a professor other than Jerome Brown that is teaching the course. It's part of a CS degree, and CS is hard, but he makes it more difficult than it needs to be.
