    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Easy class, but the projects take forever!

    Course highlights:

    Highlight would be that the course overall wasn't too bad. The projects were definitely the hardest part. They take so much time. As long as you do them, youll be fine

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take ace161 if youre a business major. Much easier

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I didn't feel like he was a great teacher. He did have lecture and he did try to be interactive but he kind of just expected you to know almost more than just the basics of JavaScript. Which to my disadvantage, I didn't know much and so didn't a few others. Well of course he had office hours and lab, I felt that there weren't enough TAs for the amount of people who showed to get help. Also, I felt that I learned a lot more in lab then in lecture. If you prefer a teacher who is active with his students then i would recommend you take the course with a different professor. I stuck with this professor because I wanted to get a feel of what I may have been doing if I went into engineering.

    Course highlights:

    Though, through labs I learned more into detail about HTML and Excel. But I wasn't able to grasp much from JavaScript. Like I said, I mostly learned the material in lab.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend picking a different professor.

    Only take it if you are required to.
