    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's a well taught class and I found the coursework to be fun and exciting. The labs are interesting and although the homework is hard, they have ta hours every weekday to help students.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course would have to be the labs because I found those to be both exciting and challenging. I learned how to program for the first time and I also learned how a lc3 microprocessor works.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    As long as you save time for the homework and labs you will be fine. Doing the homework goes a long way in understanding the material for the exams so don't shortcut it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    As a required course and an intro course to computing and ECE major, Professor Lumetta sure made the whole learning process very productive and fun.

    Course highlights:

    ECE 120 basically tells you the intro to C language programming, there's a lot of logics involved rather than straight up coding

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    start the homework as early as possible and go to office hour very often to make sure you can turn in homework in time
