The instruction provided in this course are very clear and anyone who can learn coding by this course. But the course has more readable content for you to take notes and reading it may take more time.
Whether you are new to programming or an experienced guy, you should absolutely opt for this course because it helps to build a strong base with the basic but most important concepts in programming.
I recommend beginners who aren't know about programming. when I learned basic programming language I felt a lack of explanation in course. This is a factor of deduction.

I took the course since I supposed, based on the descriptions, that I would learn about C-programming. Pedagogically excellent but extremely basic with an abrupt finish.

The course was really helpful in building by basics in Algorithms and all the information that came with this course has really helped me understand programming better.

Good course but instead of making us read every topic which is cumbersome and time consuming , they can explain the whole topic through videos! Overall a good course!

I like these course and explanations, but why readings are soo long but videos are short? It is not good for student to learn something via readings. It is confusing.

I really gained adequate knowledge regarding these courses, I really thank Coursera, for providing these courses for students with free certification, thanks a lot😊

The course was interesting throughout the 4 week span .I have learnt how to write an algorithm perfectly and execute my code without any errors. Thank you for that .

To become a good programmer it's very important that our roots i.e fundamentals are strong it may be really satisfied with this course to know the tricks of basics
It is a great course!! I understood a lot of things that were vague in the past. The only problem that I rarely needed a little research to understand some points
course is useful and good, but it will be more useful and easy for beginners if more video lectures are provided based on various topics and examples.

This course helped me to make base in programming in C language. They give detailed information with example that helped me to understand the concept.

This course is good for those who are beginners in programming. It will teach you the basics of c language. I really enjoyed my time here. Thank you.

It was a best experience on Coursera . It helps me to start my Programming career during the World wide pandemic . I pay thanks to Duke University .

good and clear explanation but the video explanation must be more though the reading explanation is good Also video clarification must be clear.
In the first week of writing an algorithm, it would be better if we are asked to write an algorithm in the tests rather than answers using them.
As I'm the beginner to programming...I learnt many things ...this course is best for beginners...best lecturers r provided for this course ...

It was really a great experience learning through this platform.I would like to appreciate Duke University for making learning so easy.Thanks!

Final submission should include writing a code. This code should be tested/reviewed, even if only checking if it gives the correct results.

The videos are good and detailed but a little lacking in examples and the quiz - assignment lack different types of question and situation.
By Samuel A•
Programming Fundamentals introduces one to the key steps require for success in programming. I believe you will also find it interesting.
By Shadi N•
great course for people with no prior programming knowledge, however I did not like that there is a lot of reading compared to the videos
just some instruction and very basic understanding of language C, if you want to learn more, need choose other modules after this course.
By GUO J•
I have carefully completed the course and gained a lot. I showed great gratitude to the professors and I would go on studying C code.
By Shaheem T•
Good explanation. Easily understood. I liked it. But could have been better with lesser reading and using videos instead.

The content of the first part is very inductive and good for the novices, However, the reading material is way too much.
