I felt that Prof. Ouellette is super fair, but how difficult you find his class will most likely be dependent on who you had for 10A. And ironically, I don't think Ouellette for 10A will adequately prepare you for Ouellette for 10B.

I took 10A with Virtanen, and by comparison, Ouellette's class was a relatively more one.

Pros:
- Ton of time to finish homework assignments, just don't EVER start 1 or 2 days before it's due. Even if you just look at it the day it's assigned, that's better than pretending it's going to go away until a couple days before it's due.
- Exam formats are pretty much the same, from midterms to final.
- On a related note, the final did NOT take all 3 hours. Major plus.
- MY GOD THE AVAILABILITY OF THIS PROF. Never take it for granted- massive bonus that he will answer content related questions over email! And seriously he like lives in the PIC lab there's no excuse for not getting help. Go to him before TAs, Lab assistants, classmates. He is your key.

Cons:
- No curve, no dropped exams. He's really straightforward about this going in. It won't change for you.
- Memory based: More than problem solving, I felt this class was for homework, ability to follow directions to a tee, for exams, remembering all the little behavioral details and syntactical requirements. C++ is a strict language and his exams reinforce that.

MY TIPS:
- Please start the homework when it's assigned.
- Find a homework buddy! I had one, we met every week on a day that prof O had office hours and got the assignment done in <5 hours
- Use his resources. Studying will require going back through every lecture, looking at examples to supplement your understanding, etc.
- DO THE BOOK PROBLEMS HE RECOMMENDS.
- Find old exams.

I got a B and had there been an alternate grading scheme or a curve it would've been an A- or higher. Just be prepared to put in work for this class, ESPECIALLY if your 10A class didn't focus too hard on either pointers or classes.
