Very tough class. Programs are a lot of work and should be started as soon as possible. The written HWs are tough and require lots of reading of the textbook and understanding of the notes, but don't count for much. Exams are hard and always seem to have one topic you forgot to study hard. Stan does a good job of teaching, though.

He is a really nice guy with alot of enthusiasm and really cares about his students. Given that, I learned absolutly nothing in his class. Its pretty easy to get a good grade in his class regardless.

Sclaroff is an amazing and understanding person but horrible lecturer. He always makes time for questions after class though. Really I just read the book and didn't go to class. Assignments and quizes were extremely hard... very tricky. I felt a bit too advanced for an intro class. The curve helped though in the end. Learned alot.

CS 111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This class was the hardest class ever. The materials taught were way too advanced for intro students, who knew nothing about JAVA programming. I went insane with all the programs. However, Sclaroff was the best prof. He gave extra time for the assignments and always willing to answer questions and help. Quizzes were tricky.

Exams are hard, just about the toughest multible choice I've ever seen...tests you on memorization of code, not understanding...His lectures are normally helpfull with coding assignments, but can be fairly complicated.
