Following MIT 6.00.1x, this course continue to discuss the most commonly used algorithms in programming. Learners should be quite familiar with Python, have some knowledge in NumPy is also better but not necessary, and can fing untaught points from web searching.Professor Guttag explained the algorithms explicitly and orderly, making it easier for me to catch. The video didn't cover all the content in the textbook. If you want to gain the most from this course, you'd better learn the book at the same time. It's an awesome book! The problem sets are the most challenging and exciting part. It's a little tough. I repeated trial and error many times in almost every problem. It's really a fulfillment of writing, debugging and making the program work. Afterall, I keep up and completed the course. Thanks for edx and all the staff from MIT 6.00.2x.

Somehow I am not able to rate the stars due to my IE incompatibility. Content 5* Instructor 5*++ and Provider 5* I am midway to 6.00.1x when I enrolled into 6.00.2x.

Content 5* Instructor 5*++ and Provider 5* I am midway to 6.00.1x when I enrolled into 6.00.2x. I ended up buying the textbook by MIT Press. Acts as an excellent reference. The youtube and MIT OCW videos also complement this course. 6.00.1x and 6.00.2x forms a well-balanced meal for a starving student. 6.00.1x being the appetizer, while 6.00.2x serves the main course with a little bit of dessert at the end. To sum up, the course is not about python, but we end up learning python. The course is not about programming, but we end up learning how to program.
