    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you like computers and want to open your mind about how to work with them, then you're bound to have fun to some degree. However, if you were a beginner like myself, it's bound to be challenging at times, but you just have to find the right teachers and TA's to help you when you're stuck. You have to be willing to try and work hard, because not everything will come to you immediately, and it opens the door to many other concepts that come with coding.

    Course highlights:

    The basics for Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) captured my interest, and Python was a great programming language to start with when getting the code to work for you, rather than the other way around. It was essential to get me to where I am with Java, which doesn't hold your hand as much.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    As easy as it can be, don't cheat by stealing other peoples' code or letting them look at yours because, trust me, that will only hurt you down the road, and it only gets harder from here. Turning in something is better than nothing as long as you explain why you couldn't figure it out or what problems you had with it either on paper if it was a written assignment, or through email to the professor. As long as you can explain what some of the code is doing, you're likely to get some credit. Of course, this could also depend on the strictness of your instructor, but they will probably be sympathetic in most cases. Also, don't get too frustrated with yourself if you can't figure something out and take breaks when you can; sometimes you really can solve the problem after hours of staring at a screen if you just come back to it later with a refreshed mind.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't recommend it to someone who is not very interested in computer science.

    Course highlights:

    My highlight was the labs and the mini assignment because the helped understand the subject in depth.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you constantly informing yourself about the subject.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Wouldn't recommend for those who struggle with math or have trouble remembering many things.

    Course highlights:

    Code and Programming is what you will be taught. It will be tough at the times but rewarding from start to finish.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't slack or get distracted whatsoever. You need to remember every single thing of this course as its increasingly important in making a type of game or a program.
