    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a really thorough class and I definitely learned a lot. The online lectures were a lifesaver so I could literally rewind and listen to the same explanations over and over again until I finally retained the information. Some of the projects were very tough but it was fair and depending on your coding ability it might be a breeze for you. Personally, for me it was a challenge and I got stressed easily from project deadlines but it turned out that doing poorly on a few projects here and there didn't really destroy my grade at all.

    Course highlights:

    Whether you take EECS 183 or ENGR 101 before this (I took the latter), you learn a LOT more in this course conceptually. Some of the stuff we focused on: structs, classes, pointers, nodes, linked lists, recursion, binary search trees. Really interesting stuff and really important for internships!

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't stress too much about the projects, if you fail one or even two it'll be fine, but make sure you always do as much of the project as you can. For one of them I couldn't get the driver to work at all but I got 60% of the points because I completed the other easier files. Also, sometimes you have to give up and that's okay! Coding doesn't come easily to every single person (I, for one, have a lot of trouble) but that's fine and it doesn't mean you have to switch majors. Keep working at it! Also, another tip for this course is to not underestimate the exams because they're actually weighted pretty heavily. Do all the practice exams and you'll be good. Finally, GO TO OFFICE HOURS. Some IAs/GSIs might not be that helpful but some of them will literally sit with you and go through your code to find the bug. I spend hours there before a project deadline and it really helps.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    For those who are interested in programming, it's extremely useful for understanding basic ideas in C++. The projects are usually fairly interesting, and James Juett is an entertaining professor.

    Course highlights:

    The projects are pretty interesting and they help with learning the concepts. Topics include recursion, object-oriented programming, pointers, polymorphism, and a little bit of data structures.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start projects early. The people who start them last minute find issues with the autograder and it goes poorly for them.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this class. It helps you become a great programmer and gives you the basic knowledge you need to code in c++.

    Course highlights:

    Every lecture you get to learn some new concept of C++ which keeps the whole semester interesting.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start projects early and go to office hours.
