Would being competitive with your roomate makes you learn better, or causes you to go too fast without really learning?
why not making project together like "Brandon and your roommate first C++ application"
it is depend on how you see the competition if if is abous just finish the co7rse for example or who will finish the course and apply what he learn from the course. I brefer to learn and compete with my friend better than working alone .
That is an excellent point Moustafa, I'm too much of a perfectionist myself to NOT learn it lol. Agus, I think that is an excellent idea.
