    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Coding teaches profound problem-solving skills and the most personable professor in the world is Professor McPherson. He creates an environment that is challenging but enjoyable. You are put in a position where you want to succeed and enjoy learning.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a stronger problem-solving ability as well as strengthing my imagination. Programming forces the individual to abstractly perceive the problem at hand and creating a unique solution that will solve the solution.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice would be to start your projects on once they are given because the solution that you perceive to have could be completely off. If you give yourself the entire three weeks to complete the project, then you have the opportunity to go to office hours for assistance before the professor's office is flooded with students the week the project is due.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Prof McPherson is a great professor, and relays the information to his students in an effective manner. One of the best course experiences I've had at college so far.

    Course highlights:

    The programs were the highlight of the course, and I learned simple c++ mechanics to build a foundation for my future coding classes.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice would be to not wait until the last minute to start a program unless you are really proficient in the c++ language. Waiting last minute will end up making you hate your life and have a bad taste for coding, trust me.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I absolutely love this teacher. He was very helpful. One piece of advice, go to his office hours early!! Pay attention to his lectures as well because they are literally what you need for the projects. He's such a nice guy and makes sarcastic jokes all the time that i love. He doesn't target students though. I've blatantly told him I wasn't paying attention for one of the areas I was confused on, and he responded calmly and just told me where I could go on Scholar to see it. I previously had prior programming knowledge so this class was an easy A. I'd say if you think you're the absolute worst, programming illiterate, yet a hard worker you'd be able to get at least a B. The class isn't even really a lot of work. Programming is just very time consuming. Overall, this should be an easy class unless you deliberately try to fail.

    Course highlights:

    I learned my the extent of my ability. I learned how to use object oriented code. I learned more terminology. I found myself explaining things to my peers. The teacher's lively personality was also a plus.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Work hard, go to his office hours early, ask questions, do projects early, and pay attention to his lectures. He gives hints all the time.
