Quarter Taken: N/A Submitted June 17, 2015 Grade Received: N/A

Actual Course: PIC 10A

Good professor. He has a thick accent, but his powerpoints are fantastic so it is still easy to learn. His accent became a little more troublesome when learning the later concepts, but I never felt like it prevented me from learning the material. He is very friendly and easy to approach. It is obvious he wants his students to learn, so don't be afraid to ask questions.

He has 2 grading schemes:
29% homework
1% course evaluation
15% Midterm 1
15% Midterm 2
40% Final


29% homework
1% course evaluation
20% best midterm
50% final

8 Homework assignments. They aren't that hard, just start early because if you get stuck you'll need some time or help to figure them out. He'll drop your lowest homework.

Midterms are pretty straightforward. Try to get old ones because he uses the same types of questions.

Final wasn't too hard, just study and review the homework assignments.

The best advice I can give is to treat learning to program like learning a language, because that is exactly what you're doing. 20 minutes of review every day will go a lot farther than a couple hours one day per week. I put in a fair amount of work but didn't study every day and ended up with a B+.

NOTE: I took PIC 10A with him

He's a decent professor. Nice guy who wants you to learn, and knows what he's talking about. He has an accent but is still understandable. His tests are pretty straightforward and are based off his lecture slides and the examples he does in class. He's not an extraordinary lecturer or anything, but he gets the job done. For homework you have a project due each week, and they are usually pretty doable.
