I'm just a beginner for CS or SE classes, and find this course really concise and challenging. It opens a door for me to get deeper into programming language. No wonder it got so high average score.

Great course!\n\nI think this course has just the right balance of theoretical background, formal definitions, and actual examples to make "just right".\n\nThanks Dan, and everybody else involved!

excellent, i couldn`t take it few years ago - due to my bad english, today i really enjoy it.
Many things that seemed difficult for me are not.

Very good instructor, challenging but doable homework for week 3 and 4. Exam is too easy though. I would like the exam to be more difficult.

such a clear introduction to Functional Programing. My fear of 'academic functional style' is totally gone, and really like recursion now.

Covers essential functional idioms, and explores ways of computation different than the usual imperative, object-oriented patterns.
