Before this course the only programing experience I had was IIPP1 & 2 .This course does exactly what the course descriptions says, One will get to learn methods like BFS, recursion and monte-carlo in the form of games.For example making the automated player for tic-tac-toe using monte-carlo methods .This helps in building a sound understanding of the concept being taught.There is much emphasis on good coding style and practice(thanks to OwlTest) .The discussion forum is always there for help and suggestions.I must mention the last mini-project The Fifteen puzzle was probably the most difficult programming assignment I have ever done but the most satisfying too. It's something worth taking this course for.This is a very good introductory course for learning the "principles of computing" and the professors have done a commendable job!
