IS 301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

You will have 5 HW assignments. I saw students stressing over these assignments, but he isn't concerned about perfection. Slap it together and you'll get points. 1 group project that only took my group 2 hours to do (we had 6 people) Midterm and final based off his power points. His study guide was lengthy like his HW descriptions, but helpful.

IS 301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Very interesting guy, and you learn a lot; however, the lectures briefly touch on test material. The book doesn't seem to give the detailed information he tests on either. Not reengineered well for summer. He doesn't grade too harshly so it's possible to make it out ok. He make an awful and obvious subject not nap-worthy.

Ekedahl is a brilliant man, and he really does know his stuff when it comes to dot NET coding. The problem is that his lectures can be very abstract. We spent four classes looking at almost 2,000 lines of machine generated code. This class is hard: assignments are brutal, and the tests are really tough. Get help if needed. Can't stress that enough.

He's pretty laid back during the lectures but he does like to hear himself talk. I took the summer course and he didn't go into much detail in lecture but the tests were hard. People struggled with the assignments too, but he's not a harsh grader and a decent grade is achievable with little stress.

took this during summer term. he makes the tests pretty difficult(you get a cheat sheet), but if you do well on the assignments and mediocre on the tests, you can still get an A. he's a genuinely nice guy!
