Comments on the course

Dr. Tovstolis is an AWESOME professor! He MOST definitely wants you to succeed! He is most passionate about Computer Science, if he seems crazy THINK AGAIN! he is trying to prepare you for your future coursework. I think he worked for IBM for a period of time, his accent is a lil hard. He recommends the C programming language book by Ritchie.

Advice

Awesome Professor, TAKE HIM, and read the book.

Comments on the course

Good class! It was online and the course was structured well. The videos can be boring, but they are super useful for the assignments as well as learning the basics of C in general. Sarah Angell is good at explaining the deets about C. Every other week, you get projects to do. I came with no programming experience, but the learning curve wasn’t too bad for me (however CS 1 kicked my ass the following semester lol). You will have to put in the effort to get good grades on them.

Advice

Form study groups, group chats, etc. to help each other on the projects. Do not straight up share your code with other students (or copy/paste something from something you found on Google), though, as you’ll get in trouble for plagiarism.

Comments on the course

I took this class in my first semester of ever taking college classes and I got a 97% in it, so it’s quite easy. I had a few years of experience in Java prior to this class, so C wasn’t a huge leap. Leinecker even agreed to be interviewed for my ENC1101 class and took an hour of his time so I have only good things to say about this class and professor.

Comments on the course

Course took a lot of time because coding just isn't my Forte. We had a couple of assignments a week. The quizzes were hard and you had to know the concepts pretty well to ace his class.

Course Content

Sorting, Arrays, pointers, and a little bit about getting data from a file input.

Comments on the professor

He was somewhat entertained and wants his students to understand the concepts of coding.

Advice

Don't take this class the same semester as other hard/time consuming classes. Especially if you have no previous programming experience
