It's was great to learn advanced algorithms and complexity. Besides, I learn new topics that can help me further learning. All the problems and the lectures were very good.
As usual, complex arguments explained in simple terms!\n\nSome problems are really tough! (e.g. there's a problem from Google Code Jam).\n\nThank you for this course!

The course left a good overall impression: the contents of the course are excellent and assignments are relevant. I've only noticed 2 downsides: the videos of the first week were sometimes hard to follow and I had to spend some time googling (which I find strange) (however, the situation changes when a Russian guy appears in the third week: his explanations are very clear and precise) and some assignments, in my opinion, take way more time to complete than they should.

Great course, thank you! My only remark is that it sometimes assumes that you have lots of prior knowledge on programming in my opinion. I'm a non-tech guy trying to increase my knowledge of the field, and I've had a very hard time trying to find additional resources to solve some of the problems and to grasp some of the content. If we could have a bit more color on some of the harder parts during the course it'd be great.

Good assignments, however the lectures (especially linear programing) are too short. The lecturers explained the algorithm in a way that only experts in the subject could understand. I didn't understand the lectures at all until i studied from other sources. Not recommended for beginner.

A great course but really very tough. Every module of the course deserves to be a separate course in itself. One thing that bothered was that the assignments were very vaguely explained and needed lots of searching and self study. Anyways got it after many many months.

This module is by far the hardest in this specialization, but at the same time, it is rewarding. The only complaint I have is the Linear Programming part. I wish there was more explanation or some toy examples to go through the algorithm.
By Fabrice L•
A lot of material covered in this course. The assignments are more challenging than in the previous courses of the specialization.
It is overall a great final and a very complete specialization.
Thank for putting together all this work.

Learned a lot. great material. Tough homework
I appreciated that the grader demanded good implementations but I think it would have been good to have a little guidance as to how to get there.
By Teguh S L•
The problems are really challenging, thank you! However, the instructor is not very active in the discussion forum, which is a pity when you really need help and get stucked in the problem set.

Very Educational and Enlightening. The only criticism I have is that the starter files generally need more modification than indicated to create a successful program.

The only thing I missed in this course (and specialization) was more visual, intuitive approach to explanation. Programming assignments are rewarding.

after 2 week rest weeks are fun with Alexander S. Kulikov.
Daniel M kane, does not meet our need.
But overall this course has many thing to learn.
By Vasily V•
Excellent course. One star less just because there are not very clean test cases for one particular problem among programming assignments
By Bharti S•
Thank you so much. You are doing such a great work but i appreciate if you explain week-2 (linear programming) in detail. Thank you.
By Rihaan S•
Very informative course with challenging assignments. It will surely make your data structure concepts clearer.
By Shreyansh G•
Great course! , learned a lot of new algorithms.
although week 2 could have been better.
By Lee B U•
It was good but it should supplement the contents of Linear programming.
By SHAYON G•
very crisp and concise! would definitely recommend
By D V S S R•
nice and some difficult

While I like the content of the course but I felt too much of topics were crammed into one single course. I had to struggle a lot to grasp the concepts on advanced algorithms by just relying on video lectures so I had to look around in the internet for additional resources. Nonetheless it was a satisfying experience though it took me a lot of time and effort to complete the assignments.
