Pros: Dr. Plane will break concepts down so much that even people such as myself who have had little programming experience can understand things with ease. I will recommend her only if you can put up with the cons I am about to list.
Cons: Cons: Lectures are extremely boring and are early in the morning, her analogies for explaining things are beyond annoying (cat analogies), and her voice was pretty annoying. Also the class starts off ridiculously easy but then all of a sudden changes to extremely hard.
If you can put up with the cons, by all means take this professor, it is really hard to fail this class. However, be prepared for the workload spike towards the middle of the semester.

Pros: She knows what she is talking about and has a lot of experience. She is friendly and is always willing to help you out.
Cons: The analogies that she uses in class (mostly relating to cats) make the class dull and boring. Basically, there is no motivation to pay attention in class. When you need help from her, sometimes she treats people condescendingly and always assume you know what she is talking about.

When teaching CMSC131 she moves at a pace that assumes you have JAVA experience. Her analogies to explain concepts are often very similar and thus very confusing. She is nice and approachable outside of class, and very willing to help. However, this does not make up for incredibly dull lectures that do not cater to students who are truly new at JAVA or programming in general.

It's a pretty simple class, but Jan doesn't like the topic and tends to read in a monotone off the slides she presents.
