Comments on the course

Time consuming but doable. I had very little programming experience when I took this course (had been coding for less than a year) so the projects and labs took me very long to do. I would often be in the library for 8+ hours working on assignments. But because I dedicated so much time to this class I was able to get an A. The labs and the first project are on zybooks, so if you pass all the tests you are guaranteed a 100 on them. The exams aren't a huge percent of your grade, the final was a lot easier than the first exam. I think I got 2% of extra credit at the end of the semester.

Course Content

First project - implement a linked list Second project - reading/writing images basically Third project - coding minesweeper using sfml library

Comments on the professor

He was a great lecturer from what I saw, but I was usually too lazy to go to class or even watch the zooms so I looked at the powerpoints to study for quizzes and that was very helpful.

Advice

If you are somewhat new to programming be prepared to dedicate a lot of time to this class, but know that if you do your efforts will pay off. Don't be discouraged by people in the groupmes who have been coding since they were born and finish all the projects in 5 hours. Everyone works at their own pace and if you grind hard you'll get the results you want.

Comments on the course

It is a very tough class unless you're an amazing programmer, you will have to work extremely hard to get a good grade

Course Content

Very useful if you want to be a programmer or software engineer

Comments on the professor

Nice guy and gives good lectures, but the projects and exams are excessively hard

Advice

Learn as much as you can about C++ before taking the exam
