Comments on the course

A nice course that gave a good introduction to the world of coding. The profs were forgiving and gave many extensions to labs and worksheets and the content was manageable. My only complaint is that the lectures didn't feel very interesting, but this is mainly due to the flipped classroom approach that this class utilized.

Advice

Make sure to do the worksheets and practice working under stress and the midterms and exams feel really stressful as they don't give enough time to finish all the questions. The labs on the other hand are very similar to the prelab, so if you just do the prelab a day before your lab you will be fine.

Comments on the course

Fairly well taught class - it's how all flipped classrooms should be run. They reviewed concepts relatively well and took ample time to answer questions. Worksheets and labs were very manageable by just completing the screencasts. Midterms were easy, but the final required a bit more practice (my fault for overlooking the final and not studying). The material is useful and though you might not code in C for the rest of your life, the general concepts will be a great tool to have. I will say though, the second half of the course (DAQ) was slightly more disorganized than the first, but nothing too crazy.

Advice

Go through all screencasts, read the textbook material if you have time (textbook is more detailed as the screencasts may leave out some useful information). Most of the difficulty in exams come from trying to understand the question and understanding when to use different functions. Practice previous midterms, labs, worksheets in preparation for the final.
