I got an A+ in CS 1 pretty easily, and from what I've heard from my friends as well, CS 1 is a low workload easy class. Don't devote too much time to it but pay attention to the instructions. I found most of the lectures I attended to be a bit dull, most people didn't attend lectures since the quizzes were based only on the PPTs. The quizzes were straightforward, but make remember to go through the PPT once before class.

I would advise people who take CS 1 in the future to finish their essays earlier. I did mine in week 10 and it was a pain to go through all the PPTs again. Most of the people I know did their essays the day it was due. Just make sure you follow all the rubrics and guidelines.

One thing I didn't like about this class was that there were no female speakers. We have amazing female faculty, so for me this was inexcusable.

The ratings are spot on: mediocre across the board. I didn't mind too much, since I didn't care about the material very much. He would randomly leave the lectures to be taught by either the TA or a guest lecturer, and quality-wise it didn't really matter.

The TA matters a lot for the projects, since he grades them exclusively (and they are worth a lot of your grade), and ours was an asshole. Sorry to the people that demoed their project to him. Luckily it was too much work for one person, so I got to demo to someone with a soul.
