Jianzhong was a very knowledgeable but somewhat dry lecturer. Alex was a great tutor though, and honestly if you get a good tutor like him you probably learn the same amount by just going to the workshops as you do with the lectures. Definitely a step up from COMP10001, but Jianzhong's assessments were quite fair and straightforward. Not a bad subject, but not quite as fun or engaging as COMP10001 either.

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. Alistair’s lectures were amazingly funny, and it was a joy attending his lectures.
