I liked the fact that the algorithms are not just the introductory searching and sorting algorithms. The assignments are fairly difficult (I have decent scripting experience), but not impossibly so.

good course, I like the fact you can use a lot of languages for you programming exercises, the content is really helpful, I would like to have more indications from the grading system to save time.

Awesome course - one of my favorites I've done on Coursera. It's thorough yet clear. I also like that you can pass the course just by implementing the algorithms as shown in the lectures, but then each assignment has multiple additional problems which challenge you to think for yourself. Really great course design!

Currently in my Week 2 of the Course and I have to say I absolutely enjoyed Week 1! My expectations are now even higher for week 2 and further. A great introduction to a critical topic and the best part was that I found myself completely involved to the course until I successfully submitted my assignment. Cheers!

The only thing I want to say is that the course was amazing, really amazing . Professors delivered their lectures in a perfect way that it should be delivered. Moreover, I enjoyed this course a lot and learned a lot . And I am also looking forward to be the part of coursera to improve my skills by doing courses.

This course is really made and teachers have really well explained the topics in detail. However, some of the topics taught doesn't feel that friendly for beginners. Questions given in assignments are really well put and will compel someone to think out of the box if someone is not familiar with the problem.

I wish the test-cases were more "open". At least SOME of them.
Many times, we felt "blindfolded" and penalised for really no fault in our actual algorithms.
Still, amazing course, great faculty, simplified introductions combined with advanced problems for the really capable.
Great mix! Keep it up!

I thoroughly enjoyed this introduction to algorithms. It covers measuring the efficiency of algorithms in general, and an introduction to the Greedy, Divide-and-Conquer, and Dynamic Programming approaches. It is a fun, and clear, with helpful hints and responsive mentors to be found in the discussion forums

Very good course especially for competitive programmers. Not like other courses on design algorithms which focus on teaching stander algorithms. This course focus on improving the ability to design and create new algorithms to solve real life problems which makes it prefect for competitive programmers.

I have benefited a lot from this course. It helped me understand concepts in Algorithms that are new to me in a very efficient way. Also, the assignments and quizzes were very useful in helping me better understand the content of the course. Looking forward to completing the rest of the specialization!

A good course for those who want to start to learn algorithms, the test cases are well-designed. If you would like to pass all the assignment with 100 % grade, be careful about the corner cases. Thinking those corner cases could really help you learn how to test your designed algorithms efficiently.

This course helped me in building up the basic concepts of the various programming methods. The assignments for each week are really helpful and of increasing difficulty. I really had a great time solving those as they helped me improve my efficiency. Overall, this course was a wonderful experience!

This is really an important course for anyone who wants to improve their programming skills. The way in which concepts are taught make it very easy to remember in future. All the problems which were given are challenging . Due to this i developed a habit to solve a single problem by multiple ways.

The content of this course is pretty good, but most importantly the assignments are structured in a good way with just the right number of 'easy/medium' questions for a beginner to pass. The 'challenging' questions are not essential to pass the course, but thinking is essential to solve them.

This course is really well designed and is quite friendly for beginners. The assignment after each topic also helps to improve the understanding of the lecture. But i think it would be better for the learners to share their codes to understand other's problems as well as to improve their own.
