Comment:
He's honestly a great professor who really cares about his students learning outcome. He does write his lectures in class off his notes, but it's so you can follow along and learn and program with it as he does the process. He does repeat things, because programming is something you need to practice over and over again to learn and remember.

Comment:
He's nice and funny, but he needs to have a better assignment submission system. I'm not the best test-taker and the only thing in the gradebook are our exams. I don't understand his lectures, he doesn't make much sense. We need more practice work :/ I'm interested in majoring in Computer Science but this class makes me feel like I shouldn't.

Comment:
Avoid this professor if you can, especially if you are knew to programming. Yes he is a nice person, but not an effective teacher. He writes his lectures as he goes, which are not very organized or cohesive. It is hard to understand what is happening in the program b/c he does not show it. Don't let this experience discourage you in learning

Bajic is the best teacher and actually cares about his students. Tests are easy if you study his study guide. He does pop quizzes during class so you have to go, but they're easy you just get credit for being there. Best teacher ever.

One of the best professors I've had at State! He really cares about his students and takes the time to make sure everyone understands topics during lecture. He was very welcoming to all, including non-CS majors with no prior programming exposure. Overall I greatly enjoyed his class and looking to take him again.

Awesome teacher. Really cares for his students and is very knowledgable about his topic. He is a very fair grader and a great guy! He genuinely cares that his students understand the topic so if you go up to him after class with questions he is more than willing to help. Take him for CS!

His lectures are very unorganized and long b/c he repeats the same thing over and over. It's hard to follow along and take notes, and we didn't use any textbook so it was hard to do the homework. He doesn't tell you the grading scale. Tests were difficult. Attendance is used as quiz points and sometimes extra credit.

He gives extra credit for showing up, tests are easy if you show up the class before for the review. Don't take it if you wanna learn, he bashes the department mostly during lecture. The final was identical to the last midterm.

There is not much you can get out of Bajic other than the stuff that he teaches. Many people don't think highly of him but once you talk to him, he is respectable and very smart. Don't skip class and actually go to learn and understand what he says. It may be review but there will be something new to learn. I know Java well but still learned much.

Awesome, professor! Generally cares about his students, class isn't that difficult, just go to lectures and pay attention, his material is lengthy but very well organized. Two ways to look at him versus other professors teaching CS108/107. Either take him and gradually be introduced to CS program, or work hard in 107/108 then work hard in 310...

Excellent professor. Bajic genuinely cares about his students and does whatever he can to ensure you have a solid grasp of the material. His lectures can be lengthy but are rich with material.

He's very funny and uses a lot of dry humor. His lectures are very detailed and he wants the best for us. He tries to make the class as easy as it gets, and gives extra credit for attendance once in a while. Overall a very nice professor!! Only downside is that sometimes he can get very boring, but his lectures are rich with information.

DON't NEED TO BUY BOOKS. He's a really nice guy and cares a lot about the students. BIG TIP! if you get confused, use codeacademy. You can search a lot of the homework projects online. Study the study guides for the 2 midterms because they are exactly like the tests. He doesn't make the final. offers extra credit for showing up.

Comment:
(CS 107 Fall 2015) Short homework every two weeks. Lectures can get boring. Pay attention to do well on the homework or to finish them quickly. If he's unclear during the lecture try to re-learn it online. Funny lectures. Extra Credit will be provided if you show up when others don't. Tests are almost exactly the study guides. Would take again.
