    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Burton is a great teacher, and he is very active in wanting all his students to get an A and understand the material.

    Course highlights:

    This course set a solid basis for all my future programming, and gave me the skills I need to excel in the computer science major.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read, the book and start you lab work 3 days before it is due, or the same day enough course material has been covered to get started.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is the class that introduced me to computer programming. Through this class I learned the basics of writing code and how important it is to our modern world. It was challenging, but enjoyable and taught me that I love to code.

    Course highlights:

    The fun of the course is the projects. They are spaced out, usually one a week. What I love about them is that you have to figure them out yourself. You do have some design specifications, and you can get help, but for the most part you must rely on what you have learned and rely on your ability to come up with solutions. I always learned the most when I struggled; I would read the textbook, I'd discuss it with fellow students and TA's, and I would study new code online. It was always satisfying after doing all this work and then to finally solve the issue with your code design.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Use the TA's. They are there to help, so don't be embarrassed to ask for assistance.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course for it's in-depth approach and the plethora of resources available. The professor and TA's really ensure that you have every opportunity to do well and understand the material. From this course you will gain great skills in programming in the C++ language.

    Course highlights:

    This was my first in-depth programming class. I found it to be thorough and well-rounded. The projects are very interesting and directly apply the material you learn in new and cohesive ways. I especially enjoyed using the online website for the class, Zybooks. The interface is very clean and helpful, providing a great environment with plenty of resources. This class will give you great introductory skills in C++, enough that you can confidently tell employers in the future that you can program in this language, even after just one course in it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take advantage of the resources offered, specifically the TA lab and the email contact for questions.
