    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class for any individual who desires to major in engineering or computer science. This course builds on your beginner skills in programming and introduces computing fundamentals and an appreciation for computational thinking which is heavily desired in the modern world. This course is especially useful if the student in question has had no prior programming experience.

    Course highlights:

    There many highlights from this course. The course allows you to meet individuals who can assist in your programming and help gain a more fundamental comprehension of it. In addition, you receive the chance to create your own programs. For example, I learned about utilizing the programming language in Python to create my own programs that could perform a variety of tasks. These tasks ranged from simple calculatations to game designing. From there, the complexity of the coding increased and I was required to seek help in not only making my code work but also fathoming it.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise to always be prepared in asking for help since this class will require you to construct complicated programs. As a result, one should make sure to always seek help and not leave the homework at the last possible moment. In addition, practice is key. On the exams, you will be asked to create code without knowing if it works or not and it is imperative that you practice beforehand so that you gain the experience. Therefore, one should always make sure to review the text and notes. In conclusion, practice is critical but understanding is the key.
