    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I'm a mathematics major, and one computing course is required for my major. I didn't have any background for this course, and although an intro course, it is incredibly difficult for someone with no experience.

    Course highlights:

    The main thing I learned from taking this course is that computing is incredibly hard for someone that is not interested in it. It takes up a lot of time that I could've used on other classes.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't fall behind in reading. It also helps to look at the stuff prior any class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Prof. Adams is a difficult teacher because he assumes that students have prior programming knowledge. Being a basic level computing course, I expected a bit slower pace. The material interesting but it was covered too quickly.

    Course highlights:

    It was an interesting course. The professor teaches C++, which I was told is quite strange for an entry level course. From the first assignment we were creating mini computer programs. The assignments were interesting, such as creating a program that calculates interest, a drawing module, among other things. The last thing we covered were arrays and the professor briefly touched upon networks.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is not for someone looking for an easy A. The course requires a lot of outside of classroom work and assignments cannot be put aside and done later (no procrastinating!). It would be very helpful to have some programming experience from high school otherwise you will get lost very quickly and you will spend your time in office hours/tutoring center just to keep up with assignments.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Do the assignments and then more!

    Course highlights:

    Exposure to thinking like a computer scientist, and invaluable skill

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just take it already and start your computer science journey
