I am currently a computer science major (with no intention of changing it) but it is so strange to me because I have already had a C++ class, which was great, I enjoyed it and I felt like I was a natural at it and struggled very little. Yet, here I am, in the first java class and it is so difficult and the syntax is so similar! Especially for these basic (relative) assignments.
Note: We code in putty to VPN to a UNIX server and code in vim. (Gross!)
Just looking for any input as to why it's so different.
My only thought is the huge difference between the classes (two different colleges):
The C++ class we were in front of a computer, and we did a problem every day, and had a homework assignment.
The Java class is taught by a PhD, who I feel has a hard time teaching the information and is really lax on due dates.
