Pros: Great teacher, very useful course. You will learn a whole lot in this class. If you put the work in and try hard, it will be the most useful course you will take in College.
Cons: Huge workload. You will spend all of your time on this course and so you will most likely do worse in your other courses. Even when putting all of your
Take this course, but don't take it lightly. Also don't take it with a very difficult schedule, otherwise it will be basically impossible.

His class is difficult if you don't do your homework and ask questions if given the chance. However, even with questions, I've heard from classmates and in class that he talks to you like you're an idiot for asking.

Pros: You will understand everyyyything about OO.
You will probably get a good job if you do well in the class.
Dave is one of the best instructors.
Cons: The class will consume a lot of time.
Probably the best class I've taken at UF. Takes up a lot of time but it's 100% worth it.

Pros: A brilliant teacher who really tries to give you a good foundation rather than just meet the university's criteria. Don't be worried if every assignment feels overwhelming. In the end he finds a way to make sure your grade reflects the amount of effort you put into the course.
Cons: Assignments are very difficult. Many times he does not even expect students to solve the problem but rather to develop better problem solving skills.
Definitely do the homework assignments, even if they are not graded or due. They often show up in the exams.
