Awesome course! Professor Roughgarden is fantastic. The material was appropriately challenging. Perfect amount of rigor. Only one minor squabble: the hash problem set is terribly misleading.
It was an awesome experience to learn from such a teacher. Now I have a much clear view of the graph algorithms. I have enjoyed this course. Thanks to Stanford for offering this course.

I love Tim's excitement for algorithms. He really stands out as a quality teacher in his selection of content, explanations and enthusiasm.
By Grigory G•
It covers the most common problems in computer programming and gives good program problems for the rigorous learning of the best algorithms
This course is very good! The professor explain the algorithms in detail , and the programming assignment is challenging！Highly recommend!

A brilliant. The first assignment was particularly challenging, and really really interesting. The rest of the course was pretty good too.
By Dilyan M•
Very helpful and intuitive. Made me a better programmer overall. I highly recommend it, even if you're not that interested in algorithms.
By Garrett S•
Love the course and the instructor. The projects are very interesting, though the first one took a lot of effort to keep from crashing.

Brilliantly explains key concepts in depth and provides a lot of food for thought content . Verbose , sharp and engrossing content !
By Ferhat T C•
Excellent course on algorithms and data structures. Weekly assignments are challenging and help you to learn course material better.

I had never, earlier, understood heaps and graph traversals so clearly. The way Prof. Tim Roughgarden taught it was just amazing !!
By Fernando L C•
Amazing course! Tim Roughgarden is an exceptional teacher! I'm really enjoying reviewing this algorithms and data structures topics
By Krishna R•
This course nicely explains the various data structures and how it helps in speeding up the solution to some type of problem .
By Arjun B•
Was a wonderful experience. Packed with the basic building blocks of the intuitive thinking, problem solvers must live by.
By Astefanoaie N S•
Nice course and exams problems. I recommend this course if you want to understand the basics of graphs, trees and heaps.
By Alexey D•
Excellent mix of math (not too much), programming details (probably needs a little bit more) and practical applications!
By Brande G•
Excellent Course. The professor has a certain way to explain difficult things and makes them look easy to us, students.
By Kalema A B•
Challenging and intuitive course, sent me digging deeper so as to better understand the concepts. Worth every bit
By Johan B•
Good course! Well structured and informative lectures. The assignments can be challenging which I think is good!
By Vishwas S•
Good course content, helped me utilize, improve my programming skills using my preferred programming i.e Java.
By Jianhui S•
Contents very suitable for computer science beginners and the instructor organizes the materials very neatly.
very good course! but I think this specialization focus on mathematical analysis, we need to practice more
By Yifeng L•
More challenging than first course, very good for beginners. Specially useful for those not in CS major.
very nice algorithm course! very helpful for non-cs students to enhance the knowledge about algorithm!
By Ning K•
Super super cool explanation of the shortest path, minimum spanning tree, and all other algorithms!
By Rickard A•
Good course! Programming assignments were more challenging than the previous course which is good!
