    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course is fun if you enjoy solving puzzles. However, there is a lot of work involved. So, don't take this course if you don't do homework. Also, don't expect much from the professor; it is a tough subject to listen to, and probably harder to teach. Almost everything you'll learn, you'll have to teach yourself through trial and error. If you can treat programming like a game, you'll have no problem succeeding in this class.

    Course highlights:

    The material is sort of all over the place, but I think I understand why. Programming is more about solving problems then knowing facts or history. For this reason, the course is going to throw a lot of material at you before you know their origins, and they do this so you'll have enough tools to start solving problems and develop a solid intuition for programming, rather than slowly memorizing a ton of programming jargon front-to-back. As the course progresses you naturally gain an better understanding of the purposes of these utilities, and you'll conclude the year programing a simple game on a graphics panel.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    People who did not go to the computer lab did terribly. Unless you're willing to put in twice as many hours trying to figure everything out, it is in your best interest to go the lab. However, don't abuse the tutors; you want to be as autonomous as possible within a realistic timeframe. So, if you have a job or four other classes don't spend 10 hours a week doing this alone. On the other hand, you won't pass the test if you don't practice figuring things out on your own.

    I would recommend you put in some effort because this is not a blow off class. It will take some studying to pass.
