Positives: It promotes learning and exploration of real life situations that I will use in the real world
It teaches basics as well as technical aspects

Negatives: Sometimes it does not provide enough information about assignments and how to do them and set them out etc.
Some aspects require more detail and time to fully understand the concept

My advice to future students is: Hang in there
Don’t give up
Ask as many questions as you want
Collaborate with as many students as you can

My advice to future students is: Don’t let yourself miss too much class
