The course was pretty challenging (and occasionally frustrating) for a novice programmer, but doable.\n\nI enjoyed the course, and came away with a greater understanding of computers and programming.
Actually, before I start this course I had not a good idea about OOP concept such as constructors, HashMap.now I have fair confidence about that. thank you duke university making such an arrangement.

I really don't understand why BlueJ is used, while there are lots of other free Java IDEs (Eclipse, IDEAJ, etc.)
Also i don't agree with some OOP things you say. I don't see any point in creating a separate class for each test case, one class for every single functional class is more than enough (e.g. we need to test a class called MyClass with 4 functions, thus we make no more than one test class with 4 or less (or more) test cases. Especially when you can use JUnit tests)

nice course , programming assignments are simplified real world problems. that helps in getting familiar with other areas of applying CS in.
Quizzes and review questions are time consuming and boring, just collecting outputs from running your programming assignment.

This programming contents of the course was quite easy, but the final quiz was awful & harder to understand. Anyway, It helped me to learn about the term cryptography. moreover, I learnt some data structures for efficient result

More accessible than course two in the track. If you are a true newcomer to programming this course is also not a good choice for you unless you can spend much, much more than the projected time on the material each week.

It definitely makes you practice! But I hope it more dedicated to make us think how to use data structure more!! But If you are newbie to this field, it might be some challenging but help you to improve your coding!!

Weeks one and two were extremely tough. Need more examples with testing scenarios in those weeks. Maybe consider breaking problems down into smaller samples.

The concepts taught were very useful and interesting, but the only drawback I found with this course was the confusing nature of the Mini-Project.

The assignments were straight forward with the algorithm laid out fully. could have been a little difficult

Still needs some reconfiguration to the quizes. I am not satisfied with those. Needs to be fixed!

In this course I learned some basics recarding to the cashper and java programming code .

Course and Assignments were good, but don't hope for an answer in the discussion forums.

Quizzes are very time-consuming. It will be better to give programming assignments.
