Would not recommend to anyone. First thing you'll notice is he has too heavy of an accent to endure. He doesn't enunciate important parts of the sentences that contributes to verbal meaning, and talks extremely low. Learn the subject yourself elsewhere, this is important. He reads directly from the book. There's no flex. If you want to learn data structures and active applications, or similar computer science concepts you're on your own. Yes, it's understood that you can and are also reading the book for the subject matter, still he will drone on, reading the book aloud, word for word, for the entire course. This is a waste of class time. You will learn verbal reading comprehension, however. As this is a lecture class, a recorder is also useless. (The lesson is already transcribed as the book.) Students who do well in this course: Already have strong affinity for the subject matter. Obtain the course answers from GitHub. Painfully taught themselves for the course duration, while enduring the cost college. Bless them. No credit to the Professor. If you can't avoid this class, I'm sorry. Set aside more time for understanding the course material that you have this professor in. If you don't, you will suddenly find the time for understanding the material cutting into other class times. Find a study partner to break up the close-endedness of this professor, the professor blindly assigns "all project questions" from the book. Get with a group after class to examine the questions, so that you can understand and implement afterward.
