The lectures are short and content-focussed, but the syllabus is well-organized and flows well. Best of all, the instructors and teaching assistants are very responsive to questions, and have helped me out whenever I have got stuck. They even looked at my code when I was receiving a low grade, and gave me advice on how to correct some errors in the project. I highly recommend this course.

They sometimes drop you in the deep end a little bit. But that isn't necessarily a bad thing, you learn a lot that way, but if I didn't already have some basic understanding of object oriented programming I don't know if I would have been able to get through this without getting frustrated with every exercise. If you do get stuck the instructors and plenty other students are very willing to help out, which is awesome. So also without any knowledge at all you should be able to get through this. It's just not the easiest Java course to start out with.
