So a little background info: I had Wittman for 10A and 10B. I thought he was pretty easy in 10A. 10B is a whole different game. The homeworks took WAYYY longer. In 10A he likes to feed the code for the harder programs; in 10B he gives you maybe a little bit of the code and makes you do tons of changes for the homework. I would spend literally hours just trying to get my programs to compile because it was just harder in general. Extra credit? Forget about it; almost always not worth it. I remember I finished my homework two days early and decided I would try the extra credit and ended up spending like six hours trying to earn one more point -_-. (Also it's a good idea if you really want to try the extra credit to backup your cpp file after you get it running so you can abandon the project if you mess it up :-| But I hear I'm the only one who didn't already know this)
Don't expect any curves either. His exams are not that hard and he has so much material to practice with that the medians are something like 90% (I think one was 43/50 and one was 47/50...). I also get the vibe that the better the class does on the first two midterms the harder the final is.. because this quarter his final was a bit of a killer. Like with all your classes just make sure you follow the directions on the exam very carefully because it's really annoying to have to redo some of the questions.
Wittman is literally the best possible teacher you could have for this class; he's patient, articulate, organized, and amusing. He really puts a lot of effort in to make sure that students learn the material, and I think you should definitely take Wittman if you have to take the class at all.

Thank you for the report!
We'll look into this shortly.
