The course is fairly advanced and you would need to review the materials many times to understand the concept. The assignments are definitely fun and not as straightforward as other courses.

Superb study material. Learnt a lot during this course. I am not much into mathematical stuff, but got a hang of how to break problems and improve efficiency through parallelism.

Wish Mr. Odersky would've taught this course as well but it quickly lived up to my expectations. I really enjoyed doing the assignments.

Very interesting material, especially the prefix sum algorithms about, how to transform a sequential problem into a parallel problem.

Good course, though there is sometimes too much mathematics, what distracts from the purpose to learn parallel paradigm in Scala.

Great course -- I learned a lot.
Parts of it were very heavy too, and not all of the lecture material was examined.
