A pretty good teacher. Him and Brian Linard are like the main undergrad CS lecturers. He is easier and seems more willing to give someone an A so take him if you want a slighter smoother time.

Easiest upper-division biology requirement ever! He assigns alot of work, but it's not hard and if you do it, you won't have to study for the midterm. I went to class, went to lab, did the HW, didn't study for the tests, and got an A. He is very good at teaching. WARNING: No Curve whatsoever!

Extremely helpful teacher. Made sure you learned the material even though it's really hard to get into programming. Gave a lot of homework but that made you learn the material well. If you want to learn CS from the basics this is the class!

He is very clear in explaining the basic concepts of programming. Even though I had experience in programming prior to taking this class, I believe that he explained them in a way that newcomers to programming would be able to grasp as long as they try. One thing to note is that I hardly used the textbook for this class.

To be honest this guy is extremely hard...I heard how he is helpful and understanding, forget that non-sense...He has takin Linard's Approach, WAY TOO MANY ASSIGNEMNTS (Code Lab, Weekly Assignments, Quizes, Lab Practicles, Weekly Lab Assignments, Quizzes, Midterms, Final) Yeah and he gave us a Quiz two days before the final...Insane amount of work!

Programming is inherently boring. A lecture on syntax is the most boring thing I can imagine. This is no exception. There are way to many assignments thought. You have to do lab assignments, lab practicals, lab exams, code lab, in class assignments, exams, and quizzes.

Great teacher, very straightforward. He really breaks it down to an understandable level and makes sure everyone is learning. The curve for my class was pretty high (B average), which is rare for a CS class and it's not because the class was easy, but because he taught it so well.

Miller is a great personal. He is more concerned that students learn, rather than deadlines. I wish he taugh CS 12.

I have only one word for him: boaring, boaring and boaring. He should have been single the rest of this life. His shiny balt head freaks me out. Does not trust anyone at all.

VERY BORING! And too easy. I hope I don't have 2 take another class with him. I wasn't challenged by the class, and it was my first class in C++. VERY BORNG! Too repetative. An entire week of lecture was condensed into less than a minute of note reading from a friend. I like programming, but his class just sucked! Sorry for being an ass, but I hated this professor's class.

Excellent undergrad T.A. The programs are very challenging but he makes everything clear and is always there for any help. If you attend all lectures there is no reason why you should be getting less than a B. Wish he was in CS12

It's true, this guy is the best teacher I've had. I only wish he'd teach CS 12. His class is awesome, just show up to every lecture and pay attention because he tells you EXACTLY how to do everything. I never once opened the book.

i thought his assignment problems were hard, however they are doable as long as you understand the material and put time and effort into it.(which i didn't do) he's a really nice guy. but there is no curve.
