I'm forced to give 5 stars. I don't want to have a certification on a poor quality course (another coursera mistake). This material needs tremendous amount of work to get finished and revised.

Course is very much helpful to enhance knowledge as it is designed based on concepts and hands on exercise. So one just can not complete without proper understanding.

The course is very useful. I love the programming assignments most as it walks you from simple tasks to more complicated ones, and you learn along the way.
