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.
I had no background in programming before attending this course and I had my own doubts on learning a new language online. But trust me, this course is very well-built and it was a cake walk for me.

This is the good course and basic fundamentals of c language for beginners.This course is more useful for me how I am learn online course and how to treat i it.so don't waste of your time to learn this course.

This course is very effective for beginner level and to understand the primary basics in detail. But 'struct' and 'type def' parts can be described in more understandable way, I think. Overall, it was useful.

IT WAS AN AWESOME EXPERIENCE IN DOING THE ABOVE COURSE AS WAS VERY INTERESTED IN THESE TYPE OF THINGS.THE TEACHING WAS BRILLIANT AND THE LEARNING OF THE COURSES THROUGH VIDEO LECTURES WAS REALLY FANTASTIC.
By Scott W•
The first exercise that required me to evaluate someone else's algorithm, and them to evaluate mine, did not make it clear how to find this person. I thought the system would connect us automatically.
By Sagar S•
The course was quite good in every aspect and it met my expectations and thanks to duke university for providing such a good course and also thanks to coursera for providing such good platform for us.

I love the way of approaching from planning then coding.The basic taught here are really awesome.I think enumeration concepts should be included in upcoming courses in this specialization
By Vighnesh V•
Very in-depth and detailed explanation in introoductionto programming.If you are a beginner,I recommend you start with C.Some background is crucial or you will be confused in the later lectures.
By Rohit D•
Great for total beginners.
Would totally recommend to college students who just started their programming classes in C.
Not for professionals eager to brush up their skills.Since it's too basic.
By Parker T•
I thought the course explained everything very well. However in the readings I thought that some keywords should be highlighted or colored different to indicate that it's part of the syntax.

Great course to learn basics for any programming language but the video lectures needs to be longer and a bit more detailed because reading content is the same as of the lecturer's content.
By Yugesh K•
Great course to begin with programming in C, but remember this isn't a general course for writing a program in any language, anyways the course content was really good to start programming.
By Mei-Chi W•
I learned how to devise an algorithm for my problems and different types of numbers. The teachers said this clearly. However, I think the hands on programming could be more. Thank you all.
By Aisha S•
It was a little hard because most part of the information should be read. I am not a CS student so that was really hard for me to adapt cs language. But in total the course was interesting
By Nanayakkara, J G G•
The course was brilliant. An improvement would be to introduce students to a compiler in the beginning to give a "hands-on" experience of the algorithms and codes they are learning about.
By Alessandro I•
the course is very interesting and well structured, however the test of week 4 (writing an algorithm) should change. I think that an instructor should evaluate my work, not a friend
By Abhigya S•
I've got a really nice overview of what programming is all about. I now kind of know what kind of thought process goes on behind the cryptic looking codes of a programming language.
By TOMÁS N P B•
It is a great introduction course about programming logic. I've already taken classes in university about this topic, but I still managed to learn new things trought this course.
By Daniel A•
I learned to better understand algorithms, to follow a series of steps to solve them, also to improve my deductive logical thinking and data about computers that I did not know.
By Piero Z•
Easy to follow and very informative. Sometimes I think that the lectures are not as emphatic in some ways to solve quiz problems as they should be. Especially in the first week.
By Isabella A V•
There are some typos in the text. Also, there ought to be more resources for people who learn more via videos/ visually other than readings. Still a great tool to learn, though.
By Kareim G•
thank you a very good course with lots of important details but i would like to add more videos instead of the reading along with programming tutorials to strengthen the ideas.
By Seonghun K•
It would be the opportunity for beginners to build the fundamental concept of C language. It seems to be much better if there are more videos and visuals rather than scripts.
I liked this course but I always thought "How hard would this be if I wouldn't already know binary numbers?". Be prepared to look this up, if you don't have the background.
By Xuejia D•
It has too much readings. Videos is better than just reading. The examples it uses are not well explained. Besides, the examples are still to little. More will be helpful.
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.
