Review #1 / Course: ISDS 3115 / Instructor: BORNE C
Carolyn and this class are utterly useless, although she is a nice lady. Didn't enjoy it one bit. She can't solve a simple math problem to save her life if she doesn't have a solved example in front of her. The material was very boring. I hardly came to class but earned a good grade by utilizing MyITLab for extra practice. Two tests and a final, all computerized in the testing center. Multiple choice/true&false/numeric problems. Don't get too caught up studying the numeric ones...they only account for about 25% of the test, regardless of what she says. I read the book to study the multiple choice/true&false. Gave bonus throughout the semester that amounted to a potential 4% points on your final course grade. Littlefield Game wasn't impossible...just sort of a pain. She is willing to help if you need it, although I don't know how effective that would be.

Review #2 / Course: ISDS 3107 / Instructor: BORNE C
Carolyn is a very sweet lady and very willing to help if you need it. That being said, she is awful at explaining anything. She used to do programming for a living but she doesn't seem to be very knowledgeable of the current Visual Studio environment and her programming skills in VB were questionable. Gives two multiple choice/written exams that are easy if you've read the book. One computer exam that many seem to struggle with, but I found it easy. Several programming assignments that can be very time-consuming, which is especially annoying when she schedules them at the last minute. But all in all I went to class probably 20% of the time and made a high A. Oh and don't expect your grades anything that isn't Scantron until finals week.

Review #3 / Course: ISDS 3107 / Instructor: BORNE C
Borne is extremely nice, and the course can be somewhat interesting. However I feel learning C++ would be more beneficial than VB. 2 written exams and 2 computer exams. Written tests are as breeze if you just read the chapters once the night before. Do the practice tests she sends out for the computer exams and you've got an A.

Review #4 / Course: ISDS 3115 / Instructor: BORNE C
only good thing about this course is that it doesn't require much studying. tests are through the computer testing center. save your quiz questions and study them. they are the test questions. as long as you study the quiz & homeworks you can make an A in this class without ever going to class. Borne is a nice person, but she can't teach. she can't solve a math problem unless she has the answer in front of her.

Easy to do well if you try. The other teacher, Kelle (I think), is horrible from what I have heard. Borne is nice and fair with grading. Would definitely choose her again if I had to do it over. Take her for this class.

Take this right after you take ISDS 2000/2001 and you'll make life easier. Best teacher for this class. Test aren't difficult but adequate. I would attend every class and study no more than 30 minutes outside of class. Overall easy.

This class is as interesting as watching paint dry. Fortunately it's the last of the "DS" classes in ISDS. Borne makes the class bearable, but I've heard that the intersession version is ridiculously easy.

Borne is a good teacher. She will prepare you for the second VB class well. Her tests may scare people due to the time constraint, but it you remain calm you will do fine.

For the love of God, take this course. You basically work an IT job and write a 12 page paper about the job and slightly relate it to an article she sends you. 12 pages was nothing for a job I worked at for 3.5 years. Easy credit.

Great teacher, definitely the best for this class. Make SURE you get a good group for the project or it will affect your grade. Very concerned about her students and easily approachable. Gives ppt in advance but going to class helps out a LOT.

Though any computer science major would laugh at calling Visual Basic a programming language, it's really the only language I enjoy. The class is REALLY easy if you have prior experience with VB, and if you don't, it's not that hard to learn.

This is the most awesome teacher you can get for this required class. She's so easy and effective. I didn't have to study but a night before exam. The game is fun too and if you come in frist place, you don't even have to write the report.
