Professor Harriger might be a nice person outside of the classroom, but I am not a fan on the way she taught and organized this class. Wasn't helpful when asked for help, and was often unclear about assignment specs. Very inconsistent as well, her quiz and exam questions were often confusing. Learn programming concepts well before taking her class.

Messes up her quiz questions, sometimes her own code, gives participation points alongside with attendance quizzes, only gave 1:30 hours to complete the final exam instead of 2 because of she just felt like doing so. Just terrible.

Honestly, if you ever find out you are about to have Harriger for a teacher, kiss your good grades goodbye. She can't teach the material at all, messes up horribly on Lab Exams, like so badly that they don't even work, and you have points taken away from that. Quizzes are all trick questions, and she is so unhelpful. Wish i was kidding about this.

Her assignments are very unclear and will cause you to lose points because her lack of clarity.She gets her OWN quizzes wrong and expects us not too.  Messed up her own lab exam so bad that she had to turn it into a take home a exam?that?s how bad it was. On her first lecture exam there were more F?s?then A?s-D?s COMBINED

Thinks her students are dumb. Funny thing too. She insist to think because she ?Co-authored??not wrote as she likes to think, also a book we are forced to buy and purdue publishes, makes her smart. She may be smart but she is a horrible teacher. She doesn?t care for any reason for missing class...you miss class you miss points.

Complete and utter moron. She is hesitant to bring up Visual Studio and code something because she knows she'll screw up. Pretty sure she steals code from Professor Lutes and then puts it into PowerPoint slides and puts her own copyright. **Only reason she is a professor is because she is FEMALE and FOREIGN. Purdue likes diversity even if they suck

Doesn't teach, nor really seem to understand the material all that well. She just uses Professor Lutes notes and tries to ignore student's questions. I have a lot of programming experience so I found the class easy, but if you're a net major or aren't a good programmer already this class could get ugly. TAs just about do the labs for you though

Quizzes daily, Labs weekly, massive group project, coding exams, regular exams, final exam, this class is mind blowing for 3 measly credit hours this is the hardest I have ever worked in an undergraduate course. There is also no book so the only help that you can get is from her examples and going in on your own time to get help. I'd avoid her.

Hated her in her class, but after getting to know her outside of class I realized how much she will go out of her way to help students. Honestly I learned more in her class than in any other class in CIT. Her class is hard but she does a lot to help you prepare for it.

I know more about brain surgery than she does about what she tries to teach. AVOID AT ALL COSTS

The sheer idiocy of this professor cannot be comprehending by typed words. She is, without a doubt, the worst teach I have ever had. She does not understand the material she teaches, nor it seems even simple subjects like high school math. To add to the annoyance, she acts like she knows it all.

i had her for CPT 255 back in Fall of 2003. the class was WAY too hard. none of her in-lecture examples worked. towards the end, she had us write programs with a language we didn't even know (Java).

I've had some bad profs but this one takes the cake. Very bias in her subjective grading. If you she doesn't like you, hold on to your hat. I am fighting her for 9 points /1000 to get B from last semester. Said I talked so much I was in risk of 0/50 for attitude but didn't say anything all semester.
