    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was structured perfectly. The assignments were challenging enough to create a sense of accomplishment while the exams tested us fairly. I recommend it to all upcoming computer science majors.

    Course highlights:

    We covered a wide array of algorithms from image processing to compression and of course data structures of all sorts. I found that along with the structures that we went over forced me to think differently when code. Remember when you first learned recursion and the powers of the recursion fairy over boring loops, well you will have the feeling every month!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't be scared, it is meant to be difficult. Don't listen to rumors that it is the hardest class you will ever take. If you truly like programming you will do just fine.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course for anyone interested in CS. This is where you get into the inner workings of programming as the language of the class is C++. Working with pointers and references teaches you how the data is stored and referred to, which will give you a more intuitive understanding of the material. This class is a must if the aim is to study higher level material in CS. All advanced concepts refer back to Data Structures in every concept they teach. This class is one of the fundamental pillars of Computer Science. I'm

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course are the wife arrange of topics the professor covers during the course. Students learn a lot of material, and many data structures. The course exposes students to the theory of the material, as well as their applications. Doing the projects taught me a lot of different skills. It improved my coding skills greatly, as the assignments are extremely challenging. I also learned a lot of fundamental concepts in a concrete way that has allowed me to do well in future classes that use the material.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    You NEED to stay on top of your work. The course staff expects you to put in 20 hours of week in working on the projects and that estimate is often on the low end. There is a lot going on, and if you fall behind, it will be difficult to catch up or do well. This class has an abundance of Office Hours, use them. They are crucial in fixing the many errors you will get during the MPs. Finally, do the practice exams for the midterms, they might have changed the format to weekly quizzes, but either way, make sure you do the practice. These questions are notoriously tricky and complicated. Do these things, and the EC, and you'll do great.
