Overall, students found Professor Ndayiragije to be an excellent instructor, who knew the subject material quite well. Unfortunately, some students felt that the course was a little rushed at times, and felt that they needed more time to practice with the syntax questions, as exercises are quite important for the course. One suggestion students have for Professor Ndayiragije is to assign and correct more questions, possibly reviewing using the questions from the C-level course.
