CNIT 255 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: C

To be completely honest, her grading in terms of labs/exams can be harsh but people need to understand that if you make time with her she WILL help you. I quite frankly deserved an F but because of my dedication I rose to a C. This class is NOT impossible I had literally zero programming experience and still believe I could've done much better.

CNIT 255 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

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.
