    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Her lectures consist of her scribbling notes all over her power points making concepts confusing, I highly recommend buying a textbook.

    Course highlights:

    I would say I gained a small overview of concepts in C++ rather than an in-depth understanding, so again buy a textbook

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    If you have no background in programming this will be a very hard course to pass, it's stated as the first CS course but her teaching style makes in worlds harder.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is no ordinary "intro" course. It is basically a crash-course in learning to develop efficient algorithms and programming in C++ to learn the basics of object-oriented languages. It is difficult and fast-paced; not for the faint of heart or undisciplined. And don't be fooled if you think you have a clear grasp on the material... you will find out to what level of attention to detail you really possess in the first exam. It's a doozy! Read every line of code very carefully!

    Course highlights:

    I'm still working through the course, but the highlights are definitely every time I finish a project successfully. That feeling is incredible!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay very close attention to the wording of coding. Be absolutely confident in your abilities to read and write code. Be diligent and patient with yourself and your peers.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class was originally taught in Java I believe, until the curriculum was updated to be taught C++. This was a good choice, as it allows students get familiar with the command line and memory management.

    Course highlights:

    Basic C++ concepts, such as pointers and arrays, dynamic arrays etc.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It helps if you have a background in programming before. If you get the chance to, I'd recommend doing the myprogramminglab exercises before the term begins. Just start your assignments early, and get help with the labs.
