Short answer: Skip this class. There are so many things wrong. If I didn't suspect better, it almost looks like the class was deliberately constructed to turn people off to C++. I don't mean to sound too negative, but most of this class is just unnecessarily painful to go through. I've done a lot of programming and what little okay material is offered here is buried in a mass of poor presentation, nutty quiz questions, old (really old) content, and just plain bad C++. It's a shame.
