I took this course in my second semester (Spring 2021). It was not a difficult course so to speak, but I almost gave up when working on one of the projects and it was so much relieved when I managed to get the correct way of doing it. I would have dropped the course (or maybe not) if I screwed up in the project though. I can't give away too much information about the projects, my advise is, don't procrastinate and have faith in yourself, you will make it!

This course is an introductory course, but it covers a lot of topics in terms of Information System and even though most of them are quite fundamental (depends on your knowledge and skill-sets), the study material (books, articles, lecture videos) are definitely helpful for you to learn or to brush up your knowledge.

The projects are not so bad too. My advice for the projects is also that do not procrastinate and start as early as possible. You might not know how much time and effort you need to finish them all.

As for the exams, studying the textbooks as well as watching those lecture videos should be sufficient. Like I said, there are a lot of thing to study, and the ability to understand and memorize them (concepts, technical terms, etc.) become an important task in order to do well in the exams.

Anyway, I got an A for this class. Statistically, over 50% of students will get an A in this class (extra credits does help!).
