Study the book and practice coding! He doesn't make the course easy but it isn't that hard. I studied a few hours the night before each tests and made straight B's. He gives extra credit and the tests are really not that hard.

If you register for his class, you are paying $ to teach yourself the material because Nat doesn't teach you anything. He doesn't drop any of the impossible tests he gives. Terrible terrible teacher who is supposed to be educating engineers and programmers. Don't take him.

Unless you have previous expirence in Java or very comfortable learning on your own, DO NOT TAKE. If you dont understand the material he is very rude and condescending. I'm sure he's a good programmer but he's an awful teacher. He gives no second chances and is very cut throat to those who struggle. Really avoid the class at all costs.

He is a good professor, if you truly want to learn how to program! He is passionate and experienced in the subject.Be prepared to read the book ahead and ask questions in class.He is likes to help students that are interested, but not the lazy ones.Come to class, read the book, pratice the exercises and turn in all your projects even if with errors

I'm taking his class again and I think I'm beginning to like the class. It is still hard but we are using a new book now and it's so much better than the last book. Example he gives you in class is very important so don't miss that. Go to his office more often if possible.

His style relies a lot on the text. If nobody asks questions bec. no one has done the reading homewk, he'll move on or ask you to code somethg in 2 mins. Exams can be easy if you read and practice from class/book exercises. He'll often give a lot of partial pts for incomplete/buggy code. If you dislike fast-paced, don't take any CS in the summer.

He intentionally makes his test hard with alot of trick questions. Heed my warning.. DO NOT TAKE HIS CLASS!! If you have to, be prepared to read every chapter. Their are no test reviews or study guide.

This class covers total 10 chapters and he goes over 1 chapter per week. Extremely fast pace and you are required to read the whole book. There are only two tests and a final exam. So, if you fail one, the chances you will get an A is very low. Absolutely no extra credit, no curve. Good luck.

So maybe he's smart. It's great that he has real world experience, but let's be honest, he doesn't kno how to teach. For those of you who have comp background, his class will be fun but I warn you, he will challenge you. He just don't understand why ppl don't get it right away.

Bad teacher. Not patient at all.Doesn't explain material well. Maybe for people who are interested in Computer Science he might be good.If you don't have any prior knowledge about computers it will be very difficult class. I don't mind to work hard but this was way too much work just to survive. Yes, he doesn't get it that people don't get it...

If you don't have any background of computer science, DO NOT take Kumaresan! He cannot teach at all, he literally confuses everyone, and he is really fast paced! For his tests, use the textbook to study and watch YouTube videos. Do not use the powerpoints. If you want to get an A, don't take this guy! Take someone else!

Fast-paced class, will make you learn tons if you don't have a CS bkgrd. A LOT of reading. Better to study off the book (not the slides) for tests. Not great at explaining but will help clarify outside class. Can be snarky when students don't "get it" right away, but if you don't take his humor personally he is actually a very nice guy & hilarious.

Fair & lenient if you show effort. Keep up with the reading or you'll be lost in lecture/tests. Test problems are about the same as those from the book/class/labs/hw. Won't spoonfeed how to write every single program, but available to help. That's just part of programming, you won't learn if you don't practice on your own. Really smart instructor.

Easily my favorite professor from GPC. Kumaresan is such a brilliant, intelligent professor that has a passion for what he teaches. He presents the material well and gives great examples. I got A's in both of his CSCI 1300 and 1301 classes by reading the textbooks while taking notes. Tests are hard but fair. Definitely take him if CS is your major!

Great teacher when one on one. Ask questions and you will do fine. When lecturing, he is a bit harder to follow, and every concept he covers appears on his tests.

I lost interest on comp sci bcuz im taking this course (writing this in class btw). I don't get anything from what he teaching. When he asks did we learn anything from 1st day until 8th week, everyone looking at eachother which means NO. I still like computer but this class is just hard for beginners. He needs to consider his teaching styles.

Very HARD!!!Terrible, at best teaching style. Makes you figure everything out on your own. Might as well stay at home. If you didn't practice computer sciece as a kid dont bother with his 1301.

I lost my interest on computer science after taking his class. He doesn't help you at all. tests are very very hard and doesn't give you any study guide. you've to read everything from the book and the power point slide. I studied so hard only to pass this class and got a C. Don't take him.
