Good and practical training approach to solve real worlds problems. Assignments and quizzes are quite challenging and interesting. Greatly motivates us towards programming and problem solving skills.
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.

Thanks for the great course. But it would be very usefull to specify some of time the student spend studying to pass the course in the certification.
Very nice course for beginning java learner, specific the seven steps to design a program. I would study these over and over in the future. Cheers!

As usual, very interesting and practical tasks to complete, which immediately gives an indication, how and where it can be implemented or used.

It's great,especially the mini-project and it is quite a complex problem, it is well planned so that we can reach the solution step by step.

Great class. Really enjoyed it. The guided lessons were just challenging enough for someone who has very limited programming knowledge.

At the end of the course noticed that I can write the code almost without thinking ... I was pleasantly surprised, thanks to the mentors

Even if Java language isn't the most "beautiful" one nowadays, it still the base if you want to understand some programs nowadays.

Applying JAVA to the problems of (ancient) cryptography. Very entertaining application examples with lots of hands-on experience.
By Frank R•
Very challenging. For absolute beginners maybe a little bit hard. Above all, you also get some programming experience in Java.

Excellent tutorials and very challenging problem sets! I would highly recommend this course for anyone looking to learn Java!
By Bogdan U•
As always, very thorough and helpful (learning by doing "countless" tasks is a great way to go, from my perspective). Thanks!

Takes you by the hand to continue understanding Java. I used to HATE Java. Now it has become like Whisky, an acquired taste.

I'm happy that coursera has such a great courses like this one. So far I know that I'm on a good way to become a programist.
Its good way to master in programming because in this course explain more and practically so its more useful to understand.

Great course. Was not easy for me.
Requires lots of work. Everything is structured very logically here and it helps a lot.

Awesome course. Got deep understanding Java HashMap and HashSet classes. But the contents over ciphers should be updated.
Another great course! It gets gradually difficult but not too difficult and the projects are great! I totally recommend!
