    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor McLaren exhibits some difficulty attempting to teach certain programming concepts, especially to those like myself who had minimal programming experience prior to this course.

    Course highlights:

    Despite said difficulties, Professor McLaren is still willing to answer any questions you have regarding programming. As a programming novice, I was still able to comprehend some of the extra explanations he provided whenever I was unclear of concepts such as input files and output files.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is recommended that you have some prior programming knowledge before taking McLaren because, for novices like myself, some of his lectures flew way over my head.
