Comments on the course

If you're at all familiar with technology you should consider testing out of this course.

Course Content

Some of the content is useful depending on your major (logic gates, routing/switching, Big-O notation), but that content will only be covered at a high level for maybe a week before you move on to something else. You won't really learn enough of anything to be practical, but that's to be expected of a 100 level course. The textbook is all busywork. It's all on zybooks and it gets graded on participation. The python assignments have some value, but those are all open sourced on the department's website and there are better resources to learn good practices.

Comments on the professor

The professor was not horrible or fantastic.

Advice

Test out if you can, especially if you're already familiar with Python and general computer/network hardware and functionality. The only weird thing might be logic gates and conversion to and from decimal to hex/binary, but I promise you can pick those topics up quickly if you care. If you do take the course don't let the Python projects sneak up on you.

Comments on the course

the worst introduction to comp sci ever. taught by grad students who read off of random generic powerpoint slides, one of the most notoriously pointless classes at mines.

Course Content

all bs

Comments on the professor

nothing wrong with the professors who teach this nonsense, it's just bad material all around. prepare to be bored.

Advice

give yourself enough time to do the python coding assignments, they're the only half decent part of this course that actually teaches you something.
