    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The lessons are easy to follow and thorough. Live Lessons definitely help explain some of the smaller details of Java programming. The teachers are always happy to help and put a lot of effort into reviewing for the AP exam.

    Course highlights:

    The course focuses on the basics of Java programming, but does include some other material including the history of computers. No programming experience is necessary as the course is designed for beginners.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be willing to devote a few hours every day to this course in the beginning. With no prior experience programming may be intimidating at first, but once you learn the basics, it will be much less time consuming and confusing. Don't be afraid to reach out to other classmates or your teacher with questions.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I totally recommend this course for long-time coders and beginners! Even if you don't plan to go into Computer Science or Engineering in college, the benefits of this course far outweigh the drawbacks.

    Course highlights:

    You learn how to code using the Java programming language, preferably through the BlueJ IDE (for beginners). Through this, you learn basic coding and learn how to solve everyday problems through coding and you will be forced to think more logically.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you plan to take this course online. Make sure you stay on pace! You need to finish on time in order to study for the AP exam!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course despite being labeled as an elective was one of the most fulfilling ones I have ever taken. I learned how to program in Java as well as some interesting topics such as encryption. The teacher always was there to help if I had questions or needed clarification on a topic.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was the programming competition I participated in at FIU. This competition put the skills I learned to actual use as I worked with my teammates. Despite not winning I still learned valuable team skills as well as new programming techniques from my peers.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you want to pursue this course having a strong Mathematical background is a must. I also suggest that you learn the basics of programming before hand as it will give you a head start. Keeping in touch with the teacher is very important as she was able to answer any questions I had about the course. Participating in the discussion groups and online collaborations also is important as they go over certain topics which can help if you didn't get it at first.
