About the Course

This course introduces classes, instances, and inheritance. You will learn how to use classes to represent data in concise and natural ways. You'll also learn how to override built-in methods and how to create "inherited" classes that reuse functionality. You'll also learn about how to design classes. Finally, you will be introduced to the good programming habit of writing automated tests for their own code. The course is best-suited for you if you are already familiar with Python fundamentals, which are covered in the "Python Basics" and "Python Functions, Files, and Dictionaries" courses (courses 1 and 2 of the Python 3 Programming Specialization). It is optional to have taken the "Data Collection and Processing with Python" course (course 3 of the specialization), but knowledge of retrieving and processing complex nested data is helpful. This is the fourth of five courses in the Python 3 Programming Specialization....

As always like how I told, there's no doubt about this being the best python course that you will ever find, and take it from a guy who never found interest in studying until now.\n\nThank you.

Great course! A month ago I still knew nothing about programming. Now I can try to understand and write codes for a mini game, which is super cool. Many thanks to the teachers and Coursera.

I wish there was more examples. This course felt like it was rushed to have different topics without enough examples for people to understand.

It's very good introductory course on oops with python but does not get into all the details, would highly recommend to beginners

Course seemed a bit rushed, not enough details on testing and try/exempt, some typos. First three courses were better developed.

I really enjoyed the course overall. Though the end assignment was a little bit tough to crack, it was challenging and fun.

This was really a challenging course and have to say an efficient course who wants to clear their understanding in OOP.

If more exercises included for this course means, it will be much helpful to gain in depth knowledge in this course.

the final project is quite challenging and sometimes it gets frustrating but they are made in order to level us up.

The course is overall good but the tool you have to use for coding (Runestone) is not very convenient to use.

Great class. I wish we could run more of the Python code in a local environment vs. the Runstone runtime env.

In general, it is well explained, but it needs to have more examples in terms of classes and inheritance.

The videos were great. But the assignments under exception could be made a little harder.

Thank you!!!

Some of Functions were hidden which resulted in confusion apart from that the course had great content

Good course but final assessment was too long and the question design and flow was bad and confusing

Its a bit less descriptive,personally think that more depth and information need to be covered

Django was not that useful. Also the course project may have some bugs.
