Section Expectation

You can expect to work on the computer several hours each day (the actual amount of time will vary from person to person) I would plan on about 4 hours a day and see how you do. You may spend less or you may spend more depending on your comfort level. We read about 2 chapters each week. You may read ahead and finish the course early. Some folks finished the book material in a week, then spent the rest of the time on their final project.


You are graded only on two items, a final exam (based on the w3.schools web site) and your final project.
