CIS2541 provides the foundation for more advanced courses on data structures and is a required course for the COD C++ Language Proficiency Certificate.
In addition to the textbooks, one will need a computer with Internet access. Software included with the textbook is used to create, edit, compile, execute, and debug C++ programs. A Web browser is used to complete the online research. Adobe Flash Player is needed to view the online video notes.
Experience indicates that students most successful in an online version of a course are students who work with computers on a regular basis and are comfortable with online interaction.
