CMSC 132
OBJECT-ORIENTED PROG II
5*****
Pros: THE best Computer Science teacher in University of Maryland-College Park. He knows his stuff and he makes it fun.
Cons: None
He is an excellent professor. He teaches you what you need to know, not some junk information you will never use. He keeps the class captivated and motivated.

CMSC 122
INTRO COMP PROG VIA WEB
2**
Pros: Pretty laid back guy
Cons: Programming projects

Quizzes
This class was super stressful. Projects start off easy but turn hard fast. He expects you to be able to somehow know how to do really advanced things based off of his lecture slides. The book was a waste of money. He only had one quiz question based off of the reading.

OBJECT-ORIENTED PROG I
5*****
Pros: Excellent teacher, very personable, easy to talk to
Cons: Don't waste his time, don't whine (not from experience, just from other kids in my class)
Fawzi is a great guy and the perfect teacher for CMSC131. He paces things just right and if you pay attention, take notes, and do the study questions, you will excel in his class.
