Class Recommendations

While I am now done with my class requirements, I will recommend a few I have enjoyed while at State.

ST 511 - Experimental Statistics For Biological Sciences:
Dr. Woodard taught this the semester I took it, and it was an excellent introduction/refresher to basic statistics and their applications.

CSC 565 - Graph Theory with Dr. Savage:
Really enjoyed Dr. Savages teaching style. My only complaint is there is almost not applied component in this class, and very little discussion of real world applications. That said Dr. Savage presents the theory in a very accessible and engaging manor.

In addition to these courses I would also recommend a few online courses I have finished to various levels.

AI, Machine Learning, and Probabilistic Graphical Models on Coursera are all very good and taught by leaders in the field.

IOS Application development on iTunesU is a great introduction to objective-c programming for Apple devices.

Oh and while it is not Computer Science, the Justice class by Michael Sandel on iTunesU is a great ethics/philosophy class if you are in to that kind of thing.
