CMPS 356 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I had been warned to avoid Beidler, but my experience turned out alright. The class was really laid back and unstructured but I learned some helpful tidbits here and there. No quizzes, tests, or textbook, just lectures, small projects, and a final project. Crude at times but funny nonetheless. Just follow directions and you'll be fine.

CMPS1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He is like 90 years old, talks about his grandchildren and Pearl (a programming language used during the stone age). He openly curses and talks about his dislike of the philosophy department. Grades are mess, never grades anything. Tests are reused. Has his degree from 1962, if that doesn't tell you anything, he should have retired years ago.

CIL120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Worst professor. I build my own computers and have enough knowledge of computers to get at least a B+ without doing anything. I did a ton of work, didnt understand the instructions for one homework and just kind of madr up answers so he thought i cheated...told me hed give me partial credit when the last drop date occured...he said ok but then at end of semester said sorry changed my mind and failed me...worst professor at any college hands down

CMPS144 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Pretty difficult tests, mostly rely upon your ability to interpret and relay back to him what you've learned about the subject material, as someone who isn't great with actual coding I struggled to understand some of the material, work in groups, it will save your grade, huge curves on overall grades as well (~10 points)

CIL102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

The class is relatively straight forward. Just follow the directions and youll get an easy A! Jack can be a little rude at times....but overall hes a pretty good teacher. Just FOLLOW DIRECTIONS he gives you and you get in A.
