this is the best course on data structures that i have found! Pr. Sriram Sankaranarayanan thank you! if i was a multi-billionaire i would definitely donate a check to you for this wonderful course :)

It was a good course, but i think that more examples for the practical tasks would have made it a lot better. Sometimes it took me a long time to understand the requirements.
