HORRIBLE TEACHER! Makes material more confusing than it really is, and doesn't help any student with questions. He is the only reason why the class is hard. He makes the total points for the class out of 100 points and does not give partial credit on tests which is your only grades. Avoid if possible.

Worst professor on Bloomsburg Campus. He has a large pride issue and refuses to help. Canceled office hours leading up to the final. Also teaches "necessary material" in the last five minutes off class before the test. DO NOT TAKE COLES at all costs. Would of rather taken an 8 am than Coles. OFF LIMITS IF YOU WANT TO PASS MATH.

I hate math but I really like this class. I don't understand some people say he goes to fast. He repeats things and he is very polite and helpful in office hours. But he really cares about you learning. You have to read the book and do the homework problems and then the tests are simple.

Worst professor I have ever had. When you are unsure about something he is a jerk and does not care what you have to say. His tests are impossible and there are no other grades that you recieve. He is very confusing and unclear when teaching his material and does not want any feedback. Its his way or the highway. HORRIBLE TEACHER. 37 people failed

Very rude, has a hard time explaining something more than once (to those confused), talks down to students who are confused, etc. I recommend taking this course with a different teacher. He was not helpful whatsoever.

All test questions come right from things he said in class. It's easy if you do the homework. If you get stuck, go to his office he will stay there for an hour explaining until it makes sense. Easy to talk to. Pretty interesting in class most of the time.

Good teacher. Helped if you needed help, but only if you specifically asked for help. Goes through the material fast and you really need to pay attention to get a good grade.

It's hard if you don't take it seriously, but if you really work then you can learn more from this class than any other I've had. He answers every question very precisely and shows lots of different ways to do the same thing. I know more about Java now than I learned in 3 courses at another college.

Had him for Java 1. Funny and engaging professor who really tries to get students interested in programming and its applications to the real world. If you pay attention, you will pass. However, the course can be difficult even if you do, especially the exams. Also, he is a big fan of Star Wars.

Nothing like I expected, best class ever. Dr. Coles is like a robot that knows everything about java and loves teaching it. I thought I was gonna fail but then I started studying like he says we should and I got a good grade and I feel like I now know so much about software. Fun class, great examples, real world and challenges.

I'm just amazed how students are giving him 5 out of 5 in easiness? Well, I had a solid programming experience prior to entering college in C++. This professor is not eaaasy. He involves extreme theories in his tests plus that he puts three tests in one with short time limit. Believe me, this is not the way CS should be taught.

This was the best summer class ive had. i expected to hate it but i learned more than in any course at BU except my major and a lot of it is really interesting to know. He explains over and over until you get it. easy but you have to study a lot.

First off, this class is an accelerated summer course, so you go over the material quickly. It can be confusing at times, but if you come to class, do the homework and pay attention then you will pass. I don't think Dr. Coles has a pride issue. It seems that he wants to teach students who actually want to learn, not just take a class to pass it.

I had Dr. Coles for Math Thinking. He was absolutely horrible. I never missed a class, did my homework, and was in study groups with people who were also completely lost. He has a pride issue & doesn't like teaching a 100 level course so he makes it harder than what it should be. When asking a question, he argues with you instead of clarifying it.

Easy class. Funny. Tries to get class engaged. Will pause from programming occassionally for random comments to give us a break. Programming homework is easy if you follow exactly what the paper says. Gives 10-question quizzes to see if you've read. Stay off Facebook and games, and you'll learn. Those with hard time are the ones screwing around.

This is my favorite class, but it would be a lot better if the lazy people would get out. Some cheat on homework and they are so stupid they still fail. For those of us who really care about learning cs this is a fun class and super organized.

We started the class with 37, ended with around 14. Not a very good explainer. I guess if you suck up to him, you'll be fine, but it's not an easy class at all.

Great teacher, subtle sense of humor, helpful to those who help themselves. If you don't go to class he will not have mercy on you however, & you'll need to have a friend catch you up. Go to class, pay attention, and have a good sense of logic and you'll love this class and the Jedi who teaches it.
