The instruction is very basic and does not provide a lot of intricate explanation, but the quizzes and assignments are ridiculously complicated compared to the level of instruction. I would not pay for the certificate for this one, because the testing is terrible.
This is a sequel to the other Learn to Program course, and like that one, it is excellent for learning Python. Lectures are clear and understandable, and exercises are workable even for those with very little experience.
Excellent introduction to Python. The exercises might be challenging for those who have not coded before, but this course is a lot more doable for the raw beginner than the MIT offerings.
This was an excellent course from an excellent instructor. The lectures were concise but informative, and the testing tools made learning the subject fun, which is not always the case with logic.
The lectures are in very heavily accented English, and the transcripts are not always helpful. The quizzes are full of trick questions and the programming exercises are much too complex for a "beginning" course. The Codeboard compiler that is used for automated grading does not give much help in finding the source of errors.
The content of this course is very thorough, and the instructor is very good. Unfortunately, I did not have sufficient preparation before the course to finish all the exercises. This is definitely an advanced course for students with a lot of experience in computer science concepts.
