    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend it for anyone interested in computer science. I personally had background experience in programming and it was fairly easy. For someone like this I'd suggest utilize your free time and do some side projects. For people curious with no experience course is intimidating but there are many resources to help you and if you put in the work you'll be fine.

    Course highlights:

    object oriented programming basic approaches are taught which is critical in high level programming.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Look at reviews find the best teacher because it will definitely impact your experience. Its a necessary class so take it.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Moves at a steady pace so that students new to programming can keep up. The material is explained thoroughly and repeatedly. Labs are helpful and projects are helpful in learning the java language.

    Course highlights:

    A solid foundation of java is built. It is a great introduction to the structure of programming languages. The application of this language is endless and the projects helped show that. However, they make take 3x as much time as one might think, so the danger of procrastination is learning as well as a strong work ethic to get a program ready.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start projects early and actually listen to the professor. One can glean a lot from examples. During lab, corporate with others in order to learn different techniques to make you program run faster. If you enjoy solving problems and love the euphoric feeling afterward, take this course.
