Took this course on line. Did my assignments and homework and flew through the course. Word/Excel were 5/5 Bird - Javascripting 3/5 (was at very end and very little of it). Recommend!

Did this online. I should have done those practices and read those modules before attempting the assignments

Easy course. Put a good hour once a week to do assignments. Material can be tedious sometimes but CTRL+F is your friend. The final exam did catch me a bit off guard.

Oh one more thing. the macs were extremely slow which is the worst but you can use the computers on the 3rd floor they are a bit faster.

Bird course.. I didn't go to class and completed assignments the day before due date. went into exam with 95% fell asleep and ended up with 89%. Shouldn't be hard if you go to class

It is so boring it becomes a bit tricky... If you keep up with the work its an easy 80

Pretty easy course, You have to really put in the time to finish your labs but most of them are really easy..and everyone is basically doing the same assignments so you can copy if you need to. Mid term was simple and assignments were easy marks. Study a little harder for the FINAL EXAM but overall, go to class and guaranteed 80

Could be extremely easy if you attend all your classes and labs. And im not Joking.

If you don't put the time and effort into some parts of this course it can be very difficult

The course is very easy aside from the every week labs and assignment. You will be working with programs such as Word, Excel, Database & html. And I recommend ppl to take this course as DE.

Easy content but the busy work takes up so much time. I really had to motivate myself to study for this class.

If you aren't a math major, and you have half a clue about computers, this course is easy. Be forwarned, it is somewhat time consuming, and can be frustrating if you aren't patient. Understand that there WILL be computer illiterate people in your classes.
