Pay attention and you'll be fine. His course website can be really frustrating, though.

I absolutely love this professor. A lot of students who dislike him mainly do so because of group mentality. He's actually a wonderful person, in and out of class.

If you like programming, this will be an excellent course. Gallagher does not hold your hand - he genuinely wants students to work through the concepts themselves and may come across as insensitive at times. Since I do love programming, I had a great time in this course, learned a lot about how to code in C, and got a summer job because of it.

His teaching style is unlike anything I've come across. He will "answer" your question with another question. He is helpful, however. I had no experience in programming and have learned a great deal from this man.

CS1114 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I learned absolutely nothing. In fact, I think he degrade mine and everybody else's knowledge. He uses borderline mentally challenged terms such as "Great snake in the sky" or "Snakey breakfast" and confuses the hell out of those who have never programmed. Would never take a class by him ever again.

At first it's really hard to follow Gallagher & his tests are difficult, but if you pay attention during the lecture, you'll do really well. Gallagher is super nice and helpful, especially if you take the time to ask serious questions and go to his office hours! He's very knowledgeable and a little 'quirky' in the computer-science sense.

Very good professor. Doesn't move too fast and explains whenever a student has questions. Has a bit of a dry sense of humor- some students think that he's being sarcastic and mean, but he's actually really nice and helpful. Don't be afraid to ask questions in class if you don't get something.

A- in the class. The curve definitely helped. He is often sarcastic, so you have to make sure you ask the right questions. Pay attention and don't sit in the back with your laptop open. Easy enough course.

CS3224 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Had him for OS in Fall 2012. Did not learn anything from him. The project isn't graded till after the final. We had no grades going into the withdraw period(midterm day before withdraw date). Did the first 5 chapters in 2 months, the last 3 chapters in 2 weeks and expects you to know it all. Ask a question and get a question back.
