it is a fundamental and theoretical course which will help you to get a profound and expanded view of programming in general. her class is very intensive and the homework and tests are challenging. worth to put yourself in it, and of course she values hard working. not for fainted heart.

Comment:
She assigns regular homework and allows for corrections. She wants you to learn through practice and understand what the problem was rather than just shaft you with a bad grade. She also tries to integrate several different types of programming languages into the work to show how certain CS concepts are consistent across languages.

Horrible, horrible, horrible. SO MUCH WORK OUTSIDE OF CLASS. And she actually has two midterm exams and a final. But if you like all the above, you'll love her.

Comment:
A few words: TOUGH, HUGE PROJECTS, HOMEWORKS ON TOP OF HOMEWORKS! She's very respected at Pace and but she also assumes that we have NOTHING ELSE to do other than DO HER HOMEWORK. I would not recommend her. She assumes we know everything, and every time my classmates needed help, she would say "try it yourself" and it got repetitive after a while.

Scharff rides on her previous status as a full bright scholar and attempts to be forward thinking with without understanding the nuances of new tech. Be a yes man, just agree even if it goes against your core principles on order to succeed. Has a grasp of certain projects in the African region without taking into account the deep rooted culture

Comment:
She does not know anything but expects everything. She always remains busy working on some hopeless projects. I wish if I could rate her in negative. She does partiality and teach almost nothing. However, she gives all students grade A. Because she does not know where she can cut the grades. I recommend students take her class only for grades

Comment:
Nice lady but a harsh grader. You can tell she is defensive about being a woman which is just silly because most people can tell that she knows her stuff. Study, participate, show up for class and you will get a good grade. Also learn how to program already. So many people can't even handle the little coding that was done in this class.

Comment:
Learned a ton about Agile/Scrum from the audits. Told us exactly what was going to be on the final and all the info is in the slides. Auditing was a lot of work but wasn't really that difficult. Individual assignments were easy. She's not as hard to understand as others portray. CIS 101 students are the scorn of Pace so be weary of those reviews.

She has a french accent, but once you get used to it, she is very understandable and is expert and delivering the course materials. She's one of my favorites.

Mobile soft. eng. course. Professor really did a great job preparing the syllabus for this unique course. The course consisted of j2me programming project with scrum (teams of two or three), research project, 9 labs, and final(very easy). All this in 6 weeks. Used good sdlc practices svn, java.net eclipse etc. Great class, highly recommended.

This class is a lot of work. She has a french accent. Hard to understand in the beginning, but after you get used to her accent after the first 2weeks, she's a good professor. Although she teaches from powerpoint, it makes our job easier, study the powerpoints and you'll do well.

WHAT A JOKE! Prof Scharff has no idea about the material that is intended to be taught, none the less she can't speak english if her life depended on it. She wouldn't be so bad if she was nice, but she doesnt give two craps about the students or their work. I have no idea how she got the job or her doctorate. STAY AWAY! Horrible Professor!

Very nice lady but sometimes hard to understand. Class is based on basic computer skills. (HTML, Javascript, Security, and Excel) Textbooks are expensive!! You need four books. Just pay attention, do her work, and you'll be set.

The following writer is correct when he says that the class did not meet on a regular basis. This appears to a habitual luxary that this prof indulges in. Also, lets ban those flunky powerpoint slides that she gets from the text publisher and have some real thoughtful notes. But- that involves work

Comment:
This was a database class, which I know pretty much all about. It also didn't have enough to be considered a class, so it was technically a tutorial, so she was really easy on everyone and we only met half the time we were supposed to. I've taken her before, I doubt she'll be ever this easy again.
