CSE 17, Programming and Data Structures, is the class students take after completing and passing CSE 2, Fundamentals of Programming. CSE 17 is essentially the next level of Java programming. I have been in this class for more than a month and have taken a 4 o clock, so I have a general understanding of the class. This class is not like your typical large lecture class where the majority of your points come from tests. A lot of classes designate tests as up to 80% of the class’s final grade. In CSE 17, exams only count for 45% of the final grade. The majority of the points come from homework assignments and programs (longer homework assignments). The homework assignments are fairly straightforward and do not take more than a few hours. However, the programs (each worth 7% for a total of 35% of the final grade) are a lot more hefty. The second program is estimated to take most students 6-8 hours to complete, though some may take longer. The programs are difficult, and if you do not have a firm grasp on the concepts, you will not be able to finish. Having said this, if a student can perform well on homework assignments and programs, he/she will get a good grade even without exceed on the written exams (obviously you want to do well on these too).
