"Get ready to read" "Lectures are long" "Clear grading criteria"

If accents are a big deal for you then look elsewhere. Read the chapters before you come to class, be on time, and do your homework and labs. That's all you need to succeed in this class and all your other classes. Lectures can be a bit boring and attendance is mandatory so be prepared for that.

"Participation matters" "There for you"

Very helpful. Took time to explain concepts, and provide examples. Engaged during lab assisting students. English is not her first language, but I had little trouble comprehending her or the materials. Requirements are quite clear, and she is eager to explain. Labs can be challenging and time consuming. A kind, caring and involved instructor.

I took 1436 and 1437 with her and I really enjoyed them. She's sweet and she'll do her best to answer all of your questions. People need to stop complaining already, just read the book and do ALL the programming examples on the there and you will be fine I promise :) Can't wait for COSC 2436.

Cosc 1415 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

Incredibly hard. Tests are usually pulled straight from an online source, but her clarity and instructions are poor. I have a family member who is a professional programmer and cannot understand what our final project is asking. Do not take her if you plan on learning. No examples, labs are off with the curriculum.

COSC-2436 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A+

I took her about a year ago. She is incredibly kind, answers all questions, and is very helpful. Yes, English is not her first language, but this was not distracting to me. Workload was very reasonable. Tests were based on the homework. Just pay attention, study, and don't miss class (daily quiz). I learned a lot and totally recommend her. :)

COSC-1437-81400 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

An unacceptably high amount of errors in lab and project instructions. Any programmer should know the importance of details. Put in the time to read the chapters and ace the open-book tests, and you should be alright. Expect to be frustrated by the lab instructions. You'll probably have to email her three times to get a question answered.

COSC1436 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Very bad instructor. She cannot explain things well, and there are errors everywhere. You pretty much have to learn from the textbook. She sometimes expects you to read over 100 pages in a week! Do yourself a favor, and find a different instructor!

COSC1301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor Le is very hard to understand. Her lectures are worthless. She basically reads off a powerpoint for class. You will need to study the book and learn on your own. Attendance is mandatory, even though you will not learn anything in class. She cannot answer any questions either. The whole glass agreed that she is pretty useless.

I took JAVA with Ms Le online. There is alot of work due every week, and 90% of her homework / quizzes have errors in the answers. THIS WILL EFFECT YOUR FINAL GRADE. It would be impossible to make an A due to the countless errors I alone found. This has been brought to her attention, and she says she will fix it, but apparently she does not. BEWARE

COSC1436 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Worst professor I have ever had. Heavy accent is impossible to understand. Unable to answer questions properly. Very rude in office visits. I had to learn everything on my own no thanks to Ms. Le. I have taken programming courses in high school, so I had some background knowledge to help me pass. I would definitely NOT recommend her! I regret it!

Took her online. Must read the textbook to understand concepts and ideas. She is super helpful and extremely lenient. Her homework had errors, and her labs were hard to understand, but she grades generously. Do the work and you will be fine. Sweetest lady in the world. I would take her for other programming classes.

COSC1301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She's a bit hard to understand & doesn't speak up very well.It's very dis-organized & most students are talking/playing on their phones completely ignoring her. Quizes aren't that big of a deal, they're easy but it's difficult to concentrate due to all the other students who casually walk in throughout the test & she does not hold them accountable.

BEWARE: The absolute worst professor I have ever had. Each and every homework assignment and test contained errors for 10 or more questions per assignment simply because she did not take the time to check her own assignments. Horrible communicator incapable of comprehensively explaining any concept. I only survived because I am a programmer.

COSC1437 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is very hardworking. has little bit communication problem but but,,its avoidable since she can explain you as many times as you want like theoretical and also practically.yes, she does take quiz everyday which is worth 4 points for each..but it will be benefit for you at the end. sometimes she has some mistakes in her lab, but overall take her.

Annoying! Quiz every day! Attendence is mandatory even though her labs are online and she just reads the powerpoints- classmate just played on their labtops. Labs are poorly written- she always had to correct them. She makes mistakes grading. Her tests were filled with typos and she doesnt give them back so you cant check for her grading errors.

The teacher is a bit hard to understand at times, and her assignments aren't always clearly defined. She does however possess a great deal of knowledge about the subject, will work hard to help students, and gives challenging lab assignments. Her tests mostly come from the book, so read the textbook(poorly written at that) and you should do well.

What an interesting semester and what a great professor. Although Ms. Le has an accent the language barrier isn't a problem if you do your homework and labs on time, read the textbook and ask questions. An easy A! Highly recommend over Gwen May.
