Test are tough simply based on how much code you have to write by hand in such a short class period. Students really have to be able to think up code and translate it onto the test instantaneously in order to finish in time.

At first, the class seems easy. The quizzes are super easy if you do the homework and then you realize that the tests are most of your grade and they are extremely difficult. Swanson's tests are hard, but he better prepares his student for them(and he lets you have cheat sheets). She is good at …more answering questions and knows the material very well. less

Dr. Johann is a phenomenal instructor. Her lectures are information-dense, but she explains everything with clarity, logic, and high-brow wit; each morning, I learned much in seemingly little time. Yes, she can be impatient and condescending, but only if you expect her to baby you through the …more course. Tests are HARD but her grading is lenient. less

Excellent professor who seems very well-versed in her subject. She explains things very clearly and responds to emails more quickly than anyone I've ever seen. Her exams are long and extensive, but fair. She grades things leniently, so don't expect any extra credit or curving of any kind. Don't …more act like a meathead in class and you'll do fine. less

Lectures are rehearsed and dull. Walks you through book examples and gives the occasional nugget of comp science. Quizzes and tests require writing code with pencil on paper, which takes forever. If you read the book and only show up for quizzes and tests, you can still do well. Gets offended if …more you don't show up even though attend is not mandatory less

Dr. Johann knows her stuff. The lectures are packed with info, and notes are easy to take. Quizzes are also super easy because they come straight off the homework. Her exams however... they're not so easy. Most of it is writing code pencil to paper, and you better be fast to avoid running out …more of time. But as long as you study, you'll be fine! less

Terrible! She is one of those teachers that thinks her class is the only one.

Dr. Johann is a great professor. Her lectures are very informative and clear, and you will have no trouble doing well in her course if you study well and listen intently and ask questions when needed. No one who is a Computer Science major should be complaining about her; people who have a large …more interest in coding will love this course! less

Professor Johan Is an amazing computer science professor. She really knows what she is talking about, but It was her tests that killed me. You basically need to think up code as you go (since you write it by hand on tests). If you study hard, you will be fine. The quizzes come straight from the …more homework assignments, so do them every week too. less

I might be biased because I had some sort of programming background but I thought this class was a breeze. Johann covers the concepts in class at an incredibly slow pace, so it's easy to understand. She also follows the textbook step-by-step so if you skip (which I did about once a week) then you …more can just skim over the textbook. A quiz every FRI. less
