The rating's comment: Pros: Approachable, knowledgeable, cares about students. Cons: Goes on 10,15, or 20 min tangents. Tests can be very challenging (expect heavy duty memorizing). His office hours are pretty much mandatory for those unfamiliar with programming. Material in book doesn't seem well represented on tests or in class. Book is mostly a reference(a poor one)
