Reviews

This subject is very fundamental, but not as easy as you thought. New concepts introduced and are different from COMP10001. It is extremely important to practice often because the quizzes and final exam have limited time and you need to think fast. Overall, not an easy H1, but an enjoyable subject.

Really liked this subject, though it's obviously a step up from COMP10001. I didn't end up going to half the tutorials, which tbh I somewhat regret as my tutor Alex was awesome. The assignments can be challenging at first glance though work through them and you start understanding it's easier. The most technical things in terms of programming you'll do are linked lists and learning about pointers, which are essential for the next algorithms subjects (COMP20003 or COMP20007) whichever you pick. I found Jianzhong to be a good lecturer, provided some laughs and was good in the sense of explaining how things worked in the C language. As it is an introductory subject to algorithms, you learn only the standard few sorting and searching algorithms. For more, do the next algorithms subject, which is MUCH more interesting in that regard. Overall, I liked this subject if at times was a bit confusing. I would recommend doing this subject when Alastair is the lecturer if possible, he's a god though I had no regrets taking it while Qi was lecturing. Good subject.

a very fundamental subject, that is extremely important to become a good programmer. becoming good at algorithms is going to help you immensely in building applications as well as coding interviews. Jianzhong was a good lecturer, and allistar's book is the bible

Really loved Artem and Alistair as lecturers for this subject. The assignments took SO much time, felt a bit much for 15%, but I did well, so it felt worth it. They were quite challenging, but hard work was reflected in the grades. I lowered it one star because I did well throughout the subject (90%) but somehow wound up with a 73 as a final mark. Thought I was prepared for the exam so I wish there would have been better exam prep throughout the semester/end of semester. Hoping to get some clarification when I can view the exam next sem.

Definitely do this subject if you want to lower your WAM :) Content of subject is interesting overall, assignments are very time consuming/ challenging and the tests are also extremely difficult. Pro tip: Buy the textbook and read it

Definitely do a lot of practice in order to do decent/well in the subject. It's very easy to fall behind if you don't keep up with the lectures. Go to the workshops even if you have missed lectures as the tutors do a summary of the week's content (not sure if all tutors do this but mine did). Make the most of the assignments to boost up your overall grade. C is quite different to python so be prepared to do a lot of work.

The lecturer makes the subject really fun and if you work hard you'll get good marks for the assignments though they're really challenging.

Very fun and interesting subject. Requires a lot of work if wanting a good mark. Alistairโ€™s lectures were amazingly funny, and it was a joy attending his lectures.

Alistair is a gem. I didn't go to a lot of my lectures this semester, but I really wish I had been to more of his. He is incredibly engaging and fun. Heed the warnings of other reviewers, this subject is a lot harder the Foundations of Computing. The very forgiving Python language and beautiful Grok UI are replaced by the somewhat more bare-bones C language and a demand for a little more "Okay I'd better work out how to approach this because it really isn't being given to me for free." The textbook is very good (written by Alistair actually) but if you miss out on a hardcopy because Co-op run out, WAIT FOR THEM TO RESTOCK. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DO NOT BUY IT FROM PEARSON AND USE VITALSOURCE BOOKSHELF.
