I took this course to hone my coding skills required to be prepared for my upcoming internship drive in college. Sadly, I was not able to understand much of what the instructor said, especially the week-2 one, from which I discontinued it. In regards of that, this should not affect the courses that I take in future, and hopefully get those courses where they make understanding clearly in a proper way.

No solutions are provided for the ungraded questions, videos are too short and there is no supplementary materials or anything to help you, questions on forms are not answered and there are many tough questions not for beginners at all. It was very bad experience unfortunately.

I took this course because the title said "Competitive Programming for Beginner". Well, actually, although the materials are intended for beginners, the course itself is not as self-contained as other beginner-level courses. The only learning materials is the video (which is quite short) and sometimes the lecture is hard to follow because of the lecturer accent (I can't blame that tough). There is no slide in .pdf format that can be accessed by the student. Some examples of codes are very limited, especially for those in graph algorithms. Honestly, I got my understanding about this chapter from another source, like and a great beginner-level textbook by Antti Laaksonen.

Forums are dead. No study material apart from bad lectures. The graded assignments have some questions that can have different answers but we need to find the one which was implicated by the professor which is super frustrating. Essentially the worst course on Coursera I have encountered so far. I would highly suggest refraining from this course.
