This is a great class. I learned / re-learned a ton. The assignments were challenge and left a definite feel of accomplishment. The programming environment and automated grading system were excellent.
Good contents and the logic of the whole course structure is very clear for a novice like me. The weekly homework is also awesome. Would recommend to anyone who wants to learn about computer science.

The course lost a lot without tests. Theory is great. Assignments are pain in the azz - too much is assumed here and there. You must resubmit like a dozen of times to figure out what is wrong.

The lectures were easy to understand and the teacher did a good job explaining the material, however the assignments were a little vague and it was hard to understand exactly how to do them.

Really good course to learn fundamental knowledge on algorithm. Programming assignment is very useful. However, lots of details of algorithm are not covered due to time constraint
By Vishesh T•
The course is awesome. It's absolutely for beginners. If it had been in C++, it would be better and more interesting. Professors are awesome. I haven't seen any course like this.

The course is very difficult, but the quality is excellent. Due to the stringent grading of the program submissions, I believe more help should offered for each assignment.
By Ioannis A•
Very nice training, I enjoyed mostly the applications of them by implementing the programming assignments. What is missing is a training certification though.
By Benjamin B•
Overall, very good course. The only thing keeping this from being a 5-star course is the lack of resources around comparing completed programming assignments.
This course is very useful, the assignments are challenging. The autograder is well prepared and very helpful on improving my implementation of algorithms.

The Explanation is good and in depth.Just please write Java Code in the new standard i.e. like using System.out.println(...) instead of StdOut or StdIn

Good lectures, challenging assignments. Though the explanation of the assignments are very hard to understand, need to work on it to make it simple.
By Daniel L•
Lectures and content are good. Was probably better on the old coursera platform, since a lot of the exercises have never been migrated over.
By Unai E•
its a great course, but, unfortunatelly not all exercises all graded and are important ones.
Anyway, I recommend this course to everyone
By Pietro G•
4 stars because the assignments are not always clear, and Java doesn't help.
Great instructor and time well spent in my opinion!
By Daniel O•
Excellent course, a little bit difficult with some activities, but Is a good approach to understand the basis of algorithms.
By Rishikesh J•
Every thing is perfect, its just that if users was not bound by the use of programming language, then it would be perfect.
By Christien K•
The assignments are extremely challenging and enjoyable. The videos can get a bit confusing, but overall a great course.
By Jorge A R G•
they clearly explained about algorithms foundations with code challenges for practice the lessons every week 👍
By Kumar H•
It's a very good and knowledgeable course but little bit boring. You guys make it little bit more interesting
By Ethan B•
It might not sound like a fun class, but the concepts covered are essential to understand computer science.
By Ravi K•
Great course! Takes a lot more effort than expected. Every concept well explained and easy to understand.
Videos can be a bit confusing. But the Programming Assignment were really challenging and rewarding.
By Rae-Win T•
Should give more practice & exercise on how the mathematically model is derived from a programme.
By Jim L•
Excellent lectures with very structured yet interesting contents. The homeworks are very useful!
By Sualeh F•
Great course materials, and very useful exercises that allow you to solve realistic problems.
By Prit G•
Great content, more depended on Java language, excellent applications taught in real life
