    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course because it is a great start to learning how to code.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course was to learn basic coding, to understand classes and methods and how to make them. I learned about for loops, while loops, if/if-else statements, constructors, and more to all help build a program and solve solutions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students to learn the terms and practice using all types of methods to create your code.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Okay, so this is an introductory level programming class required of every computer science student in the school. That being said, if you've already done your 'Hello World!' in a class, you will start out very bored. However, it gets harder. Take this course with Glock and learn how he formats all of his courses, learn how to study for his daily quizzes and crazy tests. Why? Because he teaches the harder courses. Things like CS 1450, Data Structures and CS 2160, Computer Organisation and Assembly Language. If you go into those classes having started in the basic intro class with Glock, you will have a professor who will stick with you up through the levels, someone highly knowledgeable and willing to answer whatever questions you might have. Not only that, even if you already KNOW Java, you just might learn something.

    Course highlights:

    Again, this course was an introductory Java class. I had already had a year and a half of Java in high school. What this course did for me was cement anything glossed over and gave me a better understanding of the realm of object oriented. Also, as mentioned above, it gave me a good relationship with Glock, and an understanding of how his courses work. Let me tell you, that is one of the things I am most grateful for right now, in comp. org. and assembly.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Glock gives daily book assignments and quizzes. If understanding is your passion, then study for the quizzes, read the book. That being said, those quizzes are only worth about 10% of your grade. The rest is any programs and the midterm and final. The midterm and final are composites of the quizzes and the homework. He tells you what is on these grade shattering tests. LISTEN TO HIM. STUDY WHAT HE TELLS YOU. I'm assuming if you are looking at this course as a freshman, because it is an intro class. So take this as advice for your entire college career: WHATEVER THE PROFESSOR THINKS IS IMPORTANT WILL BE ON THE TEST AND IS SURPRISINGLY IMPORTANT.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is an absolutely amazing course. Really helps you dive into the basic of computer science. As long as you are willing to work hard and come prepared you should have no problem in this course.

    Course highlights:

    The hands on learning that you get from it. I was really surprised at how much the professor was willing to work with you. I learned a lot of general knowledge​ about computer science and I realized that this is the right major for me.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Come prepared to class and do not slack off. You can get behind if you do that, but as long as you work hard it is easy to stay ahead and do well.
