This class was tough.
It's basically the amount of work of two classes. You learn Linux and Programming Assembly Language, Binary, and Logic Gates. If you don't already know some of this or have an otherwise easy class schedule you will struggle. I really enjoyed the Linux portion but the other content was too fast-paced to gain any solid foundation on.
Linux was the best part. It was not taught by the university, but you have a LabSim Testout package you buy and watch videos online. It came in really handy for my Information Warfare class, for which we use a Kali Linux box.
Hours per week:
Advice for students:
Take extra time for LabSim. Practice the section exams even if you don't have time for the rest of it. Try and work on understanding binary or assembly language beforehand if you can.
