    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a good course to start learning about computer programming.

    Course highlights:

    Good foundation in object oriented programming, and in Java. The latter half of the course has you using an IDE (NetBeans or Eclipse - I chose Eclipse, because that's what most of my potential jobs use).

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    The content is all reading, as expected for an on-line course. Unfortunately, there is a LOT of duplication between UMUC-hosted content, and content linked-to and hosted by Internet sites. I would only give a "B" to the people who were responsible for proofreading the content: many stylistic and grammar errors. All that makes the reading tedious. Get started early, and don't fall behind on the reading and assignments/labs. I did. Def do the labs!

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is great for someone just entering the world of coding. It breaks down syntax in an easy -to - understand way for all skill levels.

    Course highlights:

    I've just started the course, but it reminded me why I prefer software to hardware. So far, I'm learning the difference in coding syntax between JAVA and C#.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the assignments, and definitely do all of the beginning hands-on workshops to help perfect your understanding of coding.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was ok. I really think it has more to do with the professor you get versus the actual course. The material isn't too difficult for the nerdy types but the manner in which it is delivered is more important.

    Course highlights:

    Great fundamentals in coding. I don't like that it is completely Java based though. I feel as if there should be lessons on multiple languages.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Watch a lot of YouTube videos on how to java. I feel like there are way better explanations out there and I used this method several times.
