Content is ok, but scope not. First part of course is plain java (for example looping backwards using c-style for constructs to generate ascii graphics), 2 next parts partially low level internals (well described async handling, yes, but no word of layouting, etc. basics), then there is threory of security and testing without assignments, and at the end one should know how to use many missing basics to make complete app .. Capstone peer reviews are catastrophy: one should get 100% of points to pass, which makes it very confusing, when requirements are like "over 50% test coverage" .. I don't recommend this course, but I admit that material is excellent, and when authors of course would really see that they give student enough knowledge to pass capstone this could become good course.

After I completed the first 4 courses, Coursera tried to convince me I was ready for the capstone project. However, I wasn't well-prepared at all. I have to do a lot more studying on my own before I will be ready to make professional apps. A lot of the actual content is great. But simple multiple-choice quizzes and fill-in-the-blank programming assignments do NOT demonstrate adequate understanding of the material or teach it. I will go back through the lectures, take careful notes and especially, write my own app for every example app the instructor presents. It is only by writing code yourself that you really learn. There are so many things in my capstone project that I was really doing for the first time, and that should NOT be happening.

Good specialization completion project in general. Only found some of the weeks a little hard to complete.
Enjoyed and learned a lot, also recapped concepts I do not work with on a daily basis.
