I was a terrible coder but now I am less so! Content was really well taught (highly recommend the textbook) and Grok, ilysm. Assignments are doable if you dedicate a lot of time. Note the exam may kill you but I think as long as your code compiles, you'll be all good.

Alistair is the best lecturer I have had so far by a long way. The first 8 weeks are fantastic where you really properly learn the fundamentals of programming in a low level language like C. Unfortunately, the last month is wasted doing ' Numerical Computation' which is very wishy washy and not covered in enough depth to actually be useful at all. Basically some random numerical algorithms are given to you and then do not appear in any assessment. Assignments were very engaging and assisted in learning the content. The quizzes were frustrating though with such a short time period (30 mins) and each multi choice question being worth 1% of your grade made me feel like I definitely dropped marks due to time pressure. Overall, still an outstanding subject to do!

Great subject, with a passionate lecturer, supportive tutors and many resources. Teaches you the basics of programming, which can give you the skills to help you further develop your skills and learn other languages

Brilliant subject- a very streamlined experience, well supported by learning materials (textbook follows lecture notes/subject content perfectly and methodically. YES buy the textbook, very accessible text). If you do this subject, make sure you pick a semester with Alistair Moffat- seriously the best lecturer you will ever have, very entertaining and engaging. Subject can be challenging but so rewarding when you put in the work.
