Students found the course material and subsequent assignments difficult due to a lack of important examples. Students also noted that the distribution of marks for the course was unfairly skewed (e.g. 75% final exam). Professor Molloy was noted to be an enthusiastic instructor who attempted to engage students during lectures.

Students appreciated Professor Malloy in this course and were very approving of the educational value of the course content. One student even suggested this should be a program requirement for all Computer Science students. The volume and difficulty of work, however, was a barrier to many, and several students noted that they could not prioritize this course in relation to their other work and commitments because there was simply too much work for too few marks per assignment.
