    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    For anyone with an interest in computer coding, this course is a nice challenge for you. It's a course in which you have to rely on your notes in order to pass the class, and never be afraid to ask questions. It's not easy, but it's rewarding when you figure out all the problems.

    Course highlights:

    Learning binaries and the importance of mathematics and science in coding.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes, I cannot stress that enough. If you miss something vital, it's easy to backtrack with the lectures posted online, but never take it for granted. It's important to understand the subject instead of just memorizing the material.
