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.
It's a very good as a beginning with programing language. It helped me to think like a compiler and how it exactly works. I've finally understood the saying "Everything in computer works in logic".♥

All the teachers were fabulous and their teaching methodology was excellent but there should be more video lecture than the reading materials because nobody wants to just read and read cause these thing can also be found on Youtube. And yes, what the hell was that last quiz ? Shouldn't be it a peer graded assignment ? Well I hate peer graded assignment system but still that thing can be done by randomly typing anything, algorithm is not even needed.

Starting out, the material was easy to grasp. I will warn that once you get towards the end of the first week, it gets ridiculously challenging. It is very discouraging for a student that is completely new to this area of study to feel overwhelmed due to being rushed through point A to point B without having a gradual approach.

Took the course to brush up on C as it had been a couple of years since I touched it. Too many unimportant points take the center stage in this course rather than the actual programming part. Also the title, to say i took an introduction to c course, I'd have to complete the entire specialization.

Although the course was taught well, I seemed to struggle with the quizzes and assignments as they were much more difficult than what was taught in the lectures. I did have to do a lot of external research as well. I am a beginner and so I did struggle quite a bit.

I get a headache in doing this course.
Basically an online course must need to contain more video lectures and some readings but hear it's totally opposite.
If there is an option to update the course mean try to include more video lectures.

would have been better if the enumerated type and struct would have been explained better. Also videos on binary, decimal, hex and octal would have been better.

No help at point of questions. No option but to re-take modules which are no help if you have taken them multiple times and still don't know the answer.
By SIDDHARTH S•
courses must be in different languages as well other than english , like English+Hindi or in Hindi as it takes less time to understand and learn.
By Sayam K•
More videos should be there instead of the written content. Less clarity of me understanding your courses videos.
By Ami J•
the course could be made giving less complex examples.explanation part was very poor.
By Nai Z M•
Need more videos instead of paragraphs of texts. Very difficult to digest the words.

More info is in text form than video

wont recommend waste of time

boring and dry

There are better courses to learn about programing basics around Coursera. The manner of teaching is more of a read all these notes I gave you and understanding it well and very minimal lecture to elaborate on the topic. Some of the topic would have been easier to teach in video form rather than reading a note but nope.... For those who takes this course with the hope of completing the specialization, just go away... the programming environment and grader is not working 95% of the time ( I tried to get into it 10x already) which prevents you to complete the next few courses.

first of all, this course is NOT for beginners, you definitely need some kind of background, and even then it is hard. when you're stuck in a quiz, you don't get any tips on how to solve the questions, nor an answer at the end, instead you are left with nothing but more questions on the topic. secondly, the "teaching" process of the course doesn't help at all. you might as well buy a book and read that, the videos are literally that unimportant. not worth it, waste of money and time.

So disappointed in this class/specialization. The tools (programming environment) is buggy, slow, and a pain to use. Instruction is lacking in content and clarity. Had to waste massive amounts of time googling and looking up explanations on discussion boards.
I've taken over 50 Coursera courses, and this is the first specialization I quit because I just couldn't keep putting more effort into taking the course than the instructors put into making it.

I took the algorithms example and could already tell this course was pathetic. It makes 0 sense to start counting occupation of a graph at 0. Will never take another course at Puke University.
By Courtney E•
Wow this course is just awful.....The videos are not helpful in anyway and this course was not what I expected and definitely not for beginners looking to learn how to use code with C.
By Kumar R R•
very complicated nothing explained clearly
we had so much to read rather than video explanations i could have got that that even in a book
it didnt started from basics as promised
By Jose A G•
What a waste of a credit. Desorganized information, slow pace but then jumping foward... and so on
By SHRINIKET D•
sir at least give us some idea why our answer to given question is wrong. it only show incorrect.
By Jaemyong C•
I dropped the course due to technical issues on Duke's side. Can't complete the assignments.

I am not geeting my certificate after completing the course ehat can i do
By Shivansh Y•
the teacher are very uninteresting and totally kill the desire to learn
