    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The main problem with this course that I and several other students complain about is that it's almost entirely self-taught. All of the homework and quizzes are due/take place before the information is actually taught in the lecture, so you have to know everything before the teacher takes up an entire class period to explain it to you, making classes seem like a waste of time.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the basics of programming, from how information is stored (specifically in matrix-based systems like MatLab) to how to write and call scripts and functions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book, go to the SI sessions, and show up for quizzes on Mondays. The class is almost entirely self-taught since the information you need to know for the homework and quizzes is always taught after those things are due. You can ask whatever questions you need to during the SI sessions, and the TAs are experienced in MatLab, so if you need help you can go to them, but the teacher isn't very good at giving the information you need in any way that actually helps, so try to teach yourself or ask a friend who's in the class before going to the teacher.
