I feel like we're left behind by the teachers of this course. The teaching style does not help in getting the right code to work.

The course material is good and helpful. But high usage of duke's own library can be discouraging and frustrating at times.

Tests were a bit ambigious (truncate don't round). Videos feel a bit rigid, but the content is there.
