    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This was a very difficult course especially for an Introductory Level Course. You should be able to learn fast and expect to put in around 10 hours per week for this course. There are Labs every week and a Project to complete every 2 weeks. There are also exams and quizzes to worry about. Nothing in this class is easy.

    Course highlights:

    There is a lot of information to be learned from this course and you are expected to learn a lot if you wish to do well. You will learn various aspects of code-writing that build upon each other as you progress in the class. The highlight for me was putting together a program with various lines of code that actually worked.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students to not take this course lightly. This will likely be the most time-consuming class of your semester. Don't treat it like an introductory class because it is much tougher than that. Be prepared to put a lot of time in.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course led me to a passion that was hiding from me for 21 years.

    Course highlights:

    I learned programming in Java which led me to learn other languages on my own. Eventually leading to myself teaching elementary and middle school students code.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your work and enjoy the class. It is far more fun than it sounds.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course if you have previous experience with coding, however if you are entirely inexperienced with computer science simply do not take this class. This is not an "intro" course per say, they immediately throw you into coding with very little background information on what you are doing and what it pertains to. The course moved incredibly fast and you really had to have previous knowledge of coding if you wanted to receive an A. If you do have previous experience with Java code than this course will likely be fairly straightforward for you.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the basics of Java language and how to code some interesting games (hangman, blackjack, etc.) yet it was all very rushed. Additionally this course provided some insight for some very advanced problem solving areas of computer science especially in the labs and the tests.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    For people with experience I would say just spend a lot of time working on the projects and labs that they assign. Also study A TON for the exams by writing code out on paper, because they will be nothing like you expect and weigh a lot of your grade on "pseudocode". For people that are coming in with no coding experience (like me) I would say to read, read, read, and practice, practice, practice. If you don't practice or at least look at some harder code every day than you will do very poorly on the exams they give you.
