CS 19 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Second course with this professor. The material is quite heavy if you're new to programming, but not too bad. The course is online so there are no lectures and reading the book becomes very important/mandatory. Everything on the exams are covered in the textbook. She is not afraid to give extra credit and the class is easy if you're diligent.

CS 15 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I took this class in the fall semester with Darwiche. Her course is relatively straightforward and easy, as long as you come to class and pay attention. Her instructions aren't always clear, but it's nothing that isn't solved by simply seeing her after class. Overall not a bad teacher.

CS51 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I was expecting an advanced HTML class, but I did not get that. The assignments only rehashed what I'd learned in previous HTML courses. I learned nothing new. The professor also gives zero feedback. She also only gives out a small amount of points per assignment - so trying to work your way back from the brink if you make a mistake is hard.

CS 30 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She is not very helpful and very indirect with her responses to my questions. She doesn't seem very enthusiastic or passionate about Matlab which is a bit disappointing. I enjoy learning MATLAB and felt I could've gotten more out of the class had I taken it with another professor.

CS 15 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Her grading is very strict; even if the code works, she will deduct for items that were not outlined in the syllabus or online chat. She's active and responds quickly although she tends to never give a straight answer. Classmates on the online forum are helpful.
