I found CPSC 210 to be one of my favourite classes i've taken at UBC, partly due to the fact that I felt like I was learning valuable, applicable knowledge. There were lots easy marks to pick up throughout the term: pre-lecture questions with unlimited attempts and straight forward labs that I found very helpful. I found the project to be tricky at some parts but if you choose a topic/idea that you can get invested in, it'll make the project more enjoyable. Many students believed that exams were structured unfairly, where part-marks would normally have been given in pre-covid exams (written on paper rather than multiple choice), so that dropped my mark quite a bit. Otherwise, great course.
Learn basic Java syntax before the class starts, it'll help you get a head-start because they jump right into it.
