    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Its a good course, it is pretty difficult though. It requires a lot of time and effort to make sure you understand Java completely. The professor Andrew Tjang is a really good professor and I would recommend him for this class.

    Course highlights:

    We learned JAVA up to Object Oriented Programing and Big O Notation.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to do the homework problems by yourself and do the recitation problems. They will most likely be very similar to the exam questions. If you take this class make sure to do all the assignments by yourself so you can actually learn the work. If you just submit other people work, you will do bad in this course.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Introduction to Computer Science is a difficult course. A good professor can make it a little easier, but it is still a very difficult course.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course are that it will most likely be your first real step into learning how to code. In the beginning of the course the professor teaches how computers communicate through Binary and different parts of a system(half-adders,full-adders, etc...). The most important thing you learn how to do in this class is program through the use of JAVA. You will learn the language of JAVA. After this course a student will most likely be able to code intermediate level programs through JAVA (i.e. a chess board game).

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you have no programming experience this class will be very difficult. So, make sure to study and there is only two ways which are read the book and practice coding. Youtube tutorials will help with practicing coding when you get stuck. Introduction to Computer Science requires a lot of work outside of class because there is weekly homework. A codelab which is do every Friday which is pretty simple because it is easy questions on code. There will also be homework do almost every Wednesday. This homework can get pretty tough because you have program an entire program. For these I would recommend practicing coding and go get help from professors, teaching assistants, CAVE. There are many useful resources for this course so USE THEM! There will be two exams that are both worth 15% each of your final grade and one final exam worth 30%. These exams are difficult so you will have to study for a 4 or 5 days earlier. There is one project that is really there to help bring your grade up because a lot of people do bad on the exams. This project will be programming some type of program that is very big and will be the hardest thing you will code in this course. The project may or may not be a group project. There is a curve at the end because many people fail the exam.
