Excellent course for beginners with enough depth, programming and computational theory to increase their computer science knowledge to a higher level. It builds a good foundation of how computers work
The course is very well-designed and it helped me develop understand how to apply computational thinking in solving various types of problems as well as acquire basic skills of programming in Python.

Value, conherence content, life-long skill for problem solving. It the best in Computational Thinking, you can also consider as good Introduction to Computer Sciences.
By Michael V•
Great course! I really enjoyed this learning format and learned some fundamental computational thinking skills that I will be able to apply to programming and beyond.

Great course for non-programmers to refresh their basic computational thinking knowledge before taking more complex Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence concepts
By Sonny T•
Great course, this gave me the confidence I needed to pursue my MS in CS through UPenn. The Coursera platform is amazing and the forums are helpful when you're stuck
By Joshua B•
I found this course to be an excellent introduction to both basic programming structures and the overall process of creating an algorithmic solution to problems.
By P. S•
This is a really great foundational course if you are new to coding. It will give you a solid foundation for learning how to code later. I really enjoyed it too!
By HENGYAN T•
I learned the methods to solve the problem with computational thinking and the course is really great. I will recommend this course to my friends and colleagues.

More than yet another programming crash course. The only requirements here are your brain and desire to solve real-world problems. Simple and clear for everyone.
By Chian Y L•
A very thorough and engaging experience for student. Lots of video and very good explanation of computer science concept and practical problems involving python
By Binny J•
It was a nice course. The content was very indulging, thought provoking, very good for beginners to get addicted slowly on Computational Thinking in every day.
By Steven Y•
Excellent and thoughtfully made introduction to computational thinking. It is a very useful launching point for getting into more advanced computing classes.
By Yaair A•
Great content and well explained. There's a gap of pace in week 4 where the python content is condensed in one week, making the last assignment a bit vague.
By Yashwant S•
This is a good short starter course for people leaping into IT and good refresher course for some. I could finish the audit (minus assignment) in two days
By Camilo J•
Great course for an introduction to Computer Science. Learned a lot and enjoyed even more. The quality of the material (video production) is really goof.
By Han X•
If you don't have programming experience, you may find the last module a bit challenge. But overall, it's a very good, structured, informative course.
By Jatin G•
A very interactive and beneficial course , I say that this is the best course one should take before starting programming and competitive programming
By Daniel M•
Great course for people new to computing, but also helpful for those who have dabbled in various languages but want to understand the bigger picture.
By Yacine B•
Excellent foundational knowledge for problem solving, especially as it pertains to computer science, while not limited to it. Highly recommended.
By Samuel K•
This was a great introduction to computational thinking. All the lessons were clear and thorough and the quizzes/assignments were enlightening.
By Yingyue C•
very solid introduction about the logic & computational thinking, which made the programming part later in the course makes a lot more sense.
By Donrapee S•
great course :). It would be perfect if you can increase more volume for instructor. It's I really can'y hear the course while I'm in Subway
By Chris Y•
helps student to think and approach problems in any field of studies. great starting course for student wants to get into computer science.
By Liu Y•
I would definitely recommend this course for its step-by-step training for computational thinking. I learned a lot from each assignment!
By Masafumi S•
This was my first time to think deeply about programming. I think this is a great course! I would defiantly like to recommend to people.
