Top reviews from C++ For C Programmers, Part B

By CKFeb 1st 2019

It was good to avoid redundantly learning what C language is. Graph theory and Monte-Carlo methodology were fun. I enjoyed listening history of computer science and programming languages.

By SESep 10th 2019

I learned a lot doing the programming assignments. I also really enjoyed the calm and patient manner that the prof taught.
