This class was tough.
The professor goes at an overall good pace of teaching in my opinion and gives plenty of examples and time for work he gives us. He is a very reasonable person and explains the process for writing programs, but he's more of a show then tell person which makes some of us frustrated. Then again, programming is one of those things you need to just keep doing until you know it.
Making short programs for fun! Stuff like simple calculators built in java is a good work in progress.

Advice for students:
Make sure to follow along when he makes his programs, otherwise, you'll fall behind and have no idea why a certain line of code is necessary or how it works. And read the textbook, since he doesn't always explain everything.
