    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I probably wouldn't recommend taking this course mainly because of the professor. Unfortunately, Professor Auyeung is the only one that teaches this course. The course is extremely conceptual and Professor Auyeung does not seem to bother ensuring whether the students learn or not. For that reason, I would most likely not recommend this course. However, if I knew someone who was going to take this class, I would recommend that they sit in the front and ask as many questions as possible especially if they struggle understanding the material.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this class were definitely taking it with friends and having the ability to work together. Sharing different and more efficient ways of completing a programming assignment was definitely a highlight as it offered the opportunity to improve upon one's own knowledge including my own. We learned about a lot of conceptual material such as predicate and propositional logic, throughout this course which made it more difficult but that's why I took it with friends.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to learn a lot of conceptual material and keep asking question if they get confused. Professor Auyeung is not the best at explaining material when people are not clear. He will give you the same example with different wording which is not very helpful at times. Regardless, one piece of advice is that one should be extremely prepare to do online reading and building relationships in the class for additional help from fellow students.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Prof. Tak may be challenging but he shows us how we can apply the things you've learnt in his class to the real world. His lectures are always recorded and found online. You can always go back semesters and see his previous exams and solutions. Each semester, he will give you a new problem in his exams.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite topic in class was called the dijkstra's algorithm. Its used to find the shortest way in a shortest time. This algorithm is used in our GPS devices.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay close attention to his lecture. Every single word that comes out of his mouth is beneficial to you.
