Comments on the course

Challenging, but fair. Very useful stuff, felt much more rewarding than fundies 2.

Advice

Read course notes beforehand and start assignments as early as you can. Upload and auto grade times are very slow when assignments are due. Make sure to test thoroughly.

Comments on the course

Not much content to the course. Primary experience is working with a partner (early in the course, partner up, and then work with that same partner for the rest of the semester). Lectures were dry, and mostly just recitations of the assigned reading. Homeworks were usually just direct applications of the concepts from the reading/lecture, with little to no problem solving or thinking required.

Advice

Select your partner well. This is what will make or break your grade.

Comments on the course

Gotta use YouTube at some points for OOD tutorials, midterm/final are pretty challenging (online exam)

Advice

Taking during the Summer 1 is definitely the way to go. Just gotta crank out a lot of hours on the assignments.

Comments on the course

I procrastinated a lot in this class and paid the price. Summer burns you out pretty quickly, but the things you learn in this class are EXTREMELY useful.

Comments on the professor

Shesh was fine. I watched Vido’s exam reviews and I thought they were fantastic, so get him if you can.

Advice

START EARLY. Burnout sucks
