Course Description

You’ve hit a major milestone as a computer scientist and are becoming a capable programmer. You now know how to solve problems, write algorithms, and analyze solutions; and you have a wealth of tools (like data structures) at your disposal. You may now be ready for an internship or (possibly) an entry-level software engineering job. But can you land the internship/job? It depends in part on how well you can solve new technical problems and communicate during interviews. How can you get better at this? Practice! With the support of Google’s recruiting and engineering teams we’ve provided tips, examples, and practice opportunities in this course that may help you with a number of tech companies. We’ll assist you to organize into teams to practice. Lastly, we’ll give you basic job search advice, and tips for succeeding once you’re on the job.

The videos were great as were the discussion forums and instructor interaction. It was great seeing what entry level programmers are taught about interviewing. Especially because I was interviewing interns around this time. I audited the course (didn't do any of the assignments). I did read the assignments and they look good - especially for someone new to the field. Why did I rate the provider so low? First, if you audit the course, you get pestered with emails and comments every time you log in about "don't give up" and "you are running behind; maybe you want to join the next course". Second, there were issues with the assignment reported in the forum and the professors made the decision to allow 1% to be the passing score. That doesn't sound encouraging. I dropped the class in the last week because I got the gist of the discussions and was tired of the "reminders" to register for the next section and try again.
