TOP REVIEWS FROM JAVA PROGRAMMING: PRINCIPLES OF SOFTWARE DESIGN
It is a good course, but I believe it needs to be updated and that some quiz need reviewing. Sometimes it's really hard to understand what an exercise is asking you to do and there isn't much support.
My confidence level in Java programming has grown significantly since completing this specialisation. It gave me the necessary knowledge and practice I need to take up a role as a software engineer.
Well designed and well structured with the packages, resources, programming exercises and practice quiz. I appreciate the team's hard work in delivering good knowledge on the subject efficiently.
I could not get the Answers to the practice quiz of week 3 as my first line differed from the question first line.\n\nthe first two words were correct but the rest differed. MarkovWordOne.java
