The class is pretty fast paced but has a lot of resources to make it manageable. Linderman is very enthusiastic and knowledgable and has a lot of office hours. The weekly quizzes are reasonable and most of the work can be done in groups.

Prof Linderman was great and really wants you to learn and enjoy this class. He is super supportive during office hours and flexible with meeting times. The peer tutoring is also very helpful to attend if you get stuck on something in a lab.

I am so happy I took this course. It is difficult to create a class that challenging, fun and engaging, but Professor Linderman easily accomplished this. He offered office hours several times a week and encouraged students to come and ask him questions. There were so many days Professor Linderman stayed after his specific time slots for office hours with students that still needed help with assignments. When I had an extraneous injury this semester, Professor Linderman was extremely understanding and was able to give me help and extensions on the assignments I missed. His lectures were effective and well prepared. Professor Linderman was awesome!

Linderman is awesome. The course moves quickly but is so doable if you stay on top of the labs and use tutor hours/office hours. I loved this course -- the material is super interesting and the projects are fun. Would absolutely recommend.

No coding experience, loved this class. Weekly quizzes and labs were manageable, related to lecture. Briggs is super clear and understanding. I'm not really a stem person but I really enjoyed the class and would highly recommend if you want an intro to cs.

This course is a great intro to computer science. It certainly speeds up in pace once you learn the basics, but Professor Linderman teaches very well and is very helpful in office hours. Would certainly take again.

I think that this course was very interesting and a good intro class when learning to code. Initially, I found it hard to keep up because the course moves very quickly and I was still very much a beginner. The weekly labs can be difficult and I often had to attend tutoring hours. The exams can be difficult and stressful.

I would recommend to make use of the syllabus as there are a lot of notes and informations that would be helpful to prepare for classes and quizzes. Practice, practice, and practice! If get stuck, go to office hours or peer-tutoring, Professor and the tutors are always willing to help!

I really liked how Professor Briggs taught this course. It was pretty low-paced. Each week you had a coding project or lab to work on. She is super accommodating. I would totally recommend taking this course with her.

Professor Linderman is a great choice. He is very understanding of your situation and is always there to help you in class. My advice for this class is to go to drop in peer tutoring and office hours if you are stuck in the lab. (it really helps :))) ).

This course is a general introduction to computer science. Professor Linderman is nice and introduces the concepts of coding in Python very well, with an extremely handily-structured course webpage. While the lectures can be a little robotic, with him essentially reading the course slides, don't be put off as learning to code in Python is very useful in a variety of applications. Linderman is very helpful in office hours and strives to keep the workload as manageable as possible for an intro course.
