About the Course

This course teaches learners how to write a program in the C++ language, including how to set up a development environment for writing and debugging C++ code and how to implement data structures as C++ classes. It is the first course in the Accelerated CS Fundamentals specialization, and subsequent courses in this specialization will be using C++ as the language for implementing the data structures covered in class....

Honestly, this is a great crash course in OOP for C++ (though the ideas can be applied to any language). Previous experience with C++ is almost a necessity, the lessons can be complicated for novices.

Great course, simple and difficult all at the same time. Great introduction to these topics. Every thing that is included is there for a reason as every thing is straight to the point with no filler.

Great explanations by the professor, only reason I am giving 4 stars is due to less support from course staff. Although assignments are well designed, instructions for few are confusing.

It could have been done in a better fashion, e.g., keeping the difficulty constant, but making some things easy and some things hard just makes the student wonder about their own skills.

Good Course. I really liked the explanation for "how namespaces are used in C++". It is one of my most valuable take-ups from this course besides many interesting fundamentals taught

Week 1,2 and 3 were good but in the revised week 4 , a concept used in the lecture was not covered and it was hard to understand the code written for tower of hanoi in C++

You learn a lot of important concepts very quickly. Assignments and test are fun and really evaluate your concepts. I'd love to have seen more of operator overloading.

I think it's a bit too easy. I was expecting extensive knowledge and practices on C++ OOP like inheritance, abstract class, virtual functions, more advanced topics.

The final programming assignment was actually a normal coding assignment rather than pure C++ object oriented programming. Overall the course is enjoyable.

Great course! It would be a bit better if there was more code-writing involved to reinforce the language, rather than directly quizzing language esoterica.

Excellent but the support staff seems to have disappeared recently. Moreover the leap between the lecture material and assignments is a little too large.

The course was nice but the project was awful. I'm glad I have some 'pro' code to study from but I felt it wasn't relevant to the level of the content.

The skims through the topics. The explanation of the concepts is good but merely the overview. More projects with more difficulty would benefit more.

Overall good course, with brainstorming practical exercises and challenges.

A Medium to hard kind of course and student should "know" C++ language

The course is very high level. Will like to see more detailed lectures and gradded assignements to get a better handle at pointers and classes.

Nice course to refersh my C++ knowledge. However, there doesn't seem to be any tutorial on debugging. I ended up using gdb on cloud9.

the finale project subbmition mechanichs was not the best thing i tried as it caused me a delay of 3 or 4 days to end this project

Helps me to understand basics of c++ but i would say u should know atleast any one other language to understand more efficiently.

In general i'm not sure C++ is the language i want to learn - hope the value will show up in the future. Eric is really helpful.

I enjoyed the course, it had been years since taking anything C++ related. Was a good start to refreshing my knowledge there.

it was very helpful in getting to know DS and really helped build up a great patience when solving the bugs in my code

Though some terminologies are driving me crazy, I like the design of those programming assignments and the forum!

The instructor is very great in his teaching style, but I feel that the projects are somewhat lacking in rigor.

Computer-graded code is a nice change after waiting weeks for an assignment to be graded in some other courses.

The course is great. Unfortunately, the final project is covering very little part of the course if any.

The course is good. I gave it 4 out of 5 because the Tower of Hanoi lesson needs some improvements

The language used by the instructor was a little complex and fast. It was difficult to catch up.
