Instructors and the instructors who moderate the forums are great. It is a bit different way to look at programming but it makes sense and I would recommend to anyone who wants to learn C
It is actually a hard course i guess you need to have at least the basics as some of the assignments were really hard take me a lot of time to do them. especially the poker assignment
Liked way of presentation

The Readings sections in the course need a major revision. I had to spent hours trying to understand what was being conveyed. Also the README files of the assignment tasks. The language used was confusing and many times the instructions were not clear. I would suggest a revision of all the problem statements and readings.

Alright course so far. However, to me, the README seem cryptic at times. There are times when I was saying, "WTF are they trying to say." Not a fan of VIM/EMACS, too. There were instances when redirecting stdout did nothing--had to copy the contents, rm the file, and make it again. Why? Problem on my end?

Some assignments are not very clear with instructions and even a huge jump between assignments. I can only get help from Forum. Sometimes one problem can stop you for several days until someone answer your question in forum.

This course is very good (and teaches you how to use different tools like gdb and emacs), but was have some bugs with grading.
By Martin K•
Well readme's are written with typos - shows how much "care" has been put in to this course by Duke
By Timmy D•
I love the contents, but dealing with unknown test cases is extremely time consuming
By Manan J•
External Grader is complicated and slow. Checking test cases is too difficult.
By Yuqing W•
The test cases are tedious and not friendly for people not playing pokers
By Zhenmin L•
the online practice environment is not a good experience for students
By Angela F•
Maybe the only problem was the instrucctions, but nice work
By Istiaque A A•
Should increase the amount of video.
By Aquib J T•
That was pretty tough
By RISHI Y J•
too hard to code

Here's the thing, if you have experience with coding in other languages, then this is probably a good introduction to c. However, if you are new to programming beware! This is not for you. The instructions for the assignments are often vague which personally led me to a significant amount of unnecessary heartache. Moreover, they don't introduce critical concepts before throwing you at problems that are frankly sometime outside an beginner's scope. If you are new, be prepared for hours of googling in an attempt to figure out the concepts they skimmed over of failed to introduce all together. Also, the final poker testing project costs you hours while you attempt to find invisible bugs with the hints basically begin "well you should try thinking like a programmer"

the worst course course ever I enrolled. the ppe grader is just disgusting. the topic or grader is not bad ,grader complexity makes it bad.
