"Get ready to read" "Lectures are long" "Tests are tough"

This is not database design, it is database theory. This class is filled with useless technical details that apply to the mathematical theory behind database design. While some areas might be useful, this class crams together way too much. The final was more a test of your careful reading skills then your knowledge of the content. No will to teach.

"Tests are tough" "Get ready to read" "Lectures are long"

Lectures are extremely boring. Slides are word for word from textbook. No point to going to the lectures since he reads word for word from the slides and nothing else. A lot of random topics covered so studying for tests are not fun and he tests on everything. Some random thing talked about for a minute may be tested on.

"Lectures are long"

If you want a decent mark while not learning anything, this class is for you. His lectures are so boring they could put anyone to sleep. Open book quizzes are pretty easy as long as you bring your textbook. In conclusion Chen is not a good prof, nor does he care about his students, but it is easier then other CS 100 classes.

CS 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This was a horrible class!! The open book quizzes could be easy if you had access to a laptop during because all from power points. He's an easy marker on the term project. But I hated this class, such a drag & you basically teach yourself! & he didn't really care about helping you if you talked to him after class..

RUN! Terribly worded assignments! Expect to teach yourself everything! Zero help when you ask questions. I'm getting an A with just the final left to go and I fought it every step of the way.

CS 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: B

Nice guy, hard time speaking English. his lecture notes are online which makes his in class open book quizzes a breeze with control f on a laptop. Be prepared to teach yourself, as his English is poor. term project is easy. midterm and final are pretty hard, only thing you need to study for in the class though.

Horrible. Stay away for your own good. I'm a CS major and this class is a nightmare. Assignments are vague, he isn't helpful, you can barely understand him. I regret taking this class with him, but I had no other choice. He is a little bit easy when marking, but that's about it. No one in my class said anything positive about him, hmmm.

This prof did not speak English well at all. His notes are not well written. Going to class is a complete waste of your time but he takes attendance. His assignments are vague and near impossible to understand at times. He often repeats things to no end. "This code is very complex derefor you should run it at home" TL;DR he is a bad prof stay away

This class is very easy and very boring. You don't miss much if you go to class, almost everything is in his slides. His English isn't great. The open book quizzes are easy marks usually, but the midterm and final and all multiple choice and pretty hard. So so boring.

CS 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A

He was sort of hard to understand, but once you got used to the way he said certain words it was okay. Plus he repeats everything he says about 3 times. Attendance would not be mandatory if he it wasn't worth 10% of your mark.. He pretty much just goes over the power points. Don't even bother buying the textbook, i didn't open mine once.

No one could make this class an interesting class. Chen is a nice guy, quizzes are open book except the midterm and final. Labs are straightforward. Always asking if anyone has questions. Willing to explain if you seek help. Multiple choice is VERY DIFFICULT even with open book. Don't take this class if you need 90+ or need to fill an elective

Chen is very helpful and friendly to his students. The lecture is boring, but that's because CS100 isn't really an interesting class for a lecture. The lab is alright. Attend every class, take notes of what he writes on the board, and study for every quiz/exam; you're good if you do these. I'd recommend him for anyone taking Computer Science 100.

I dont get why everyone is complaining about chen. He is a nice guy, goes out of his way to make the class at least a little interesting and he continually asks people if they have any questions. This is a joke of a university class. Open book quizzes, one midterm worth %15 and an easy final. Does anyone think the basics of computers is fun? no!
