The course is buggy and thanks to bugs impossible to complete, I have payed 150 dollars so far and I cant complete the spechialization now thanks to black-box and white-box testing week 4 assignment 1.
The staff are unresponsive and they dont answer questions on the discussion forum, the assignments are vague and look like they have been put together in a hurry.
Link to external resources for the course has been hijacked for months and it leaads to malicious websites.
For a course on testing they sure as hell havent tested their own course.

The final assignment is a real force to think like a QA, read the requirements, write test scenarios, test them in the current application, then convert them to Cucumber, then read the results carefully from grader to improve the results iteratively.
I liked this approach of course.

It was a good and fruitful course, a lot of technical material is presentend and the knowledge is present.... but the assignments at the end of the course proved a bit more difficult for the given material. Thanks to the instructors for their excellent work though!
But you have to take under serious consideration the AutoGrader strange behavior!
The grader needs to be better and more detailed at feedback, since when you are left with one these tasks to complete your course this is extremely frustrating! To be more precise, you end up constantly submitting your draft assignment files (with trial and error logic) to be prompted with error messages for your many errors, that are quite abstract and you are walking blind!

In this course you really learn what testing is, if you do not have experience it will cost you and I mean hat you should look for more theory and examples than those that come in this course, there is not much in the forums that you can verify more than the people who ask For the full course, some pogramming tasks are very simple (more thinking than writing) and others are really a monster if you want to get 10
In conclusion if you pass it you learn very, very well you could be at the basic intermediate level of Junit and cucumber tests

The final task is very difficult because It has uninformative feedback. I never knew which one of my tests is wrong. And I had to find errors in my package by sending a lot of combinations of my tests to the grader.
The most unobvious error in the buggy version was four recipes instead of three. It is not an error at all, because in this task we don't have Golden versions or requirements and even installation of CofeeMakerUI was written as if four recipes were a norm (4 recipes in the list).
Also, I don't understand why I have so small coverage. Maybe the issue is in the errors from mutant versions. On my computer coverage was higher than 90% in all checked classes.

Week 4's test instructions is not clear and no easy way to tell if one is in the right direction or not. Maybe give more hints about what to test for or at least indicate which bugs are not caught in the results feedback or something!

There is not support of the teachers, the material is old because now we have Java 14 and some configurations doesn't work.
