With previous programming experience, this class was easy and incredibly boring. The midterms and final were tricky ... prof uses a lot of questions from textbook concepts, so just read it. Assignments and quizzes were easy. Without previous programming experience, students tend to struggle.

If have previous experience programming, this class is brutal, and frankly somewhat patronizing. I only went to a few, and achieved a good grade. If you're new to programming, or forced to take it despite having no incliniation to ever program again, enjoy the massive class sizes and lowest-common-denominator pace.

Challenge can vary greatly depending on past coding experience. Provides an excellent gauge for one's potential future as a programmer/developer.

This course was a good introduction to C programming. This course is usually taught by M Wirth who uses his own book that he published. The course is very easy for a computer science student, but it is a requirement.
