Last week I completed the mid-term for my Programming Fundamentals (Java) course at Longview. This means I’m half-way there. I expected to do better, but the it was also more challenging than I expected. I ended up with an 86% and still have an A in the class. I attribute my success to the excellent instructor. In an informal comparison of a handful of computer-related classes at Longview compared to Johnson County Community College; Longview wins, hands-down.
