    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    really nice professor, she is really responsible for your coding interests, she always encourage us even you fail your coding. I think if you have no coding experience, you should take her class. Useful.

    Course highlights:

    If u have question, do not do it alone. Try to ask her how to figure out and how to make your coding ez.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    TA, professor is really nice. Any question just ask them. Frequency walking to their office hour can make your grade easily full.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I initially chose OSU because according to USNews their ecampus ranked top 10 in the country and from my experience thus far, it is true. Taking this course through ecampus, the resources they provide, such as free online tutoring, help from the professor and TA, video lectures, and notes, are all extremely useful and to some extent, can be at your own pace. Everything that you need is laid out in front of you in a userfriendly format.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course are the assignments we are given once a week. As the course progress, the assignments moved from easy to more challenging. For a complete beginner in C++ and computer science in general, this course was a nice medium between what I am capable of and how I can grow that capability further without overloading me with too much information.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    While you can be at our own pace to some degree, the assignment is due once a week, so you exactly have a total of 7 days to do the work. You won't know the next assignment until the current assignment's due date has passed. Make sure that you stay on top of your assignments by getting your reading done and doing your homework early so that you have enough time to talk to your TA and/or tutor to see if you are doing the assignment correctly.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher is easy to talk too and very helpful in explaining complex ideas. Most assignments are done online, which help manage my time to do other homework.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was making my very first program. It felt really in-powering.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to do lots of problem solving, like writing a solution or debugging. Their will be lots of times which your program won't work, and you have to figure out what is causing that solution.
