Comment:
He's not a bad guy, but he just makes the assumption that either you know coding beforehand (ironic considering that this is an intro to programming class) or you have no hope in the class at all. Plus all he does in lab is read from the paper for a good hour and leaves the students to do the labs. Would only recommend if you have experience coding

Very smart and reliable professor, but goes on a tangent every once and a while. If you don't like CSC, you will not enjoy this class.

Dr. Meyer is a wonderful professor; he is very knowledgeable. You HAVE to read the textbook (which he wrote; it's free and online) and do the assignments in order to pass. He throws some curveballs at you, but hey, what professor doesn't?

Comment:
I'm a CS major. Honestly one of the worst professors. He really is a great guy and I enjoy talking to him. He just goes off on rants on "what he thinks is cool" If you like CS, you will survive..but dont take him "just because" you'll honestly regret it. From the 3 - 4 classes I took with him. Its not worth it

Great teacher! friendly and helpful, assigns work regularly, but its mostly because of the curriculum. leaves a lot of comments on graded papers to help you out, but grades hard anyways. does a good job of explaining topics but rants once in a while.

This class is tough. This is not the type of class you can BS your way through. But on a different note Dr Meyer teaches the class in a interesting way, somethings are complicated to understand but overall he is a great teacher.

Great teacher overall, even though he always seemed to be depressed, he was a very smart man who really cares about computer science and in general a great teacher CSC 111 every CSC major must take it and get at least a B- on it and he makes it achievable with the way he sets up the class overall 5 stars to Dr Meyer cant wait for CSC 253 with him

LOVE HIM!!! Great guy and he wants you to do well i think. He'll take time to explain stuff for you without holding your hand. Fair amount of work involved in the class but it's not difficult at all if you just stay on top of it

Comment:
Not a bad guy, but will treat you like you know everything he knows, which makes the help he gives somewhat poor, as well as the fact that he frequents leaving the room after pointing out multiple problems with your work.

Comment:
Meyer's a good guy. As everyone else commented, he's got this obsession with cats. For the most part, he knows his stuff. He's always around if you need help, and whenever he's not, his entire department is and they can help you. As far as classwork, you need to be interested in the content itself or you'll hate it. The homework is generally easy.

He is a brilliant man, really knows his stuff,But has difficulty explaining it to people with less computer ability than himself. He will work you very hard, which is ok it's college.

Comment:
The class is fairly difficult but he himself is a very nice man. If you need help he is always willing to help as much as he possibly can. He is a very fair grader. The labs are extremely tough but again he is always willing to help. Obsessed with cats. Can be a little strange but again he is a very nice man.

Comment:
Great Professor. Always willing to help his students and posts a TON of useful study materials on his website, including Practice tests that mirror the actual tests. There is a lot of work, and the class is certainly a commitment. But with all the resources he provides it is more than doable. Highly recommended.

He's an amazing professor. He's knows everything there is to possibly know about computers/comp history/ prgmming. If you listen to him you'll really learn alot although its easy to doze off in class. He gives fair assignments and fair tests as long as you study. You actually have to do work in these classes, but he is very helpful about it.

one of the better computer science teachers. I didnt realize how good he was until I had others. Brings in candy on occassions. Gives many examples and does weird things to make you remember concepts.
