    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would not take this class if you have no programming experience. This has become the go-to weed-out course for Computer Science freshmen and the curriculum reflects it. I often had to tutor the humanities majors who came in expecting to fulfill their TECH requirement. Do not be fooled by the "101" and "Intro to Computers" description, this class is an introduction to actual PROGRAMMING. It is handy to have prior programming experience because this is a big class where it's sink or swim.

    Course highlights:

    I gained insight to what I actually know as a programmer and computer science student, and learned how the two are different. You can be a good programmer and flunk out of this class if you're not a good student. Programming will coast you through the class but you will flunk the exams if you don't put the work in to learn theory and technical stuff.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class, even if you know what's being taught, even if you're sick, even if your friends want to hang out. Know yourself and your habits and take this class at an appropriate time. Take lots and lots of notes and study hard. Don't understand something? Get a tutor or look up tutorials. Don't shrug anything off, everything is important. Go to review sessions and do the practice tests and every lab on time! This class is not a joke, 101 or not, requirement or not. Also, pay attention, ask questions, and participate! Everything they tell you to do in class on studyblrs, you should be doing in this class. Office hours won't help if you don't know what you want to ask, but ask other students before approaching the professor.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If someone wants to go towards the computer science path they should take this introductory class to get a feel for coding and the computer science area.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a totally new language and a different way of solving problems.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is absolutely fine if you don't have any coding experience. Cse 101 will teach you the basics of coding.
