The course was really amazing which provided deep knowledge from basic to advance that how algorithms works and how to design algorithms. Thanks to all the expert teachers who taught in this course.
I liked the fact that the algorithms are not just the introductory searching and sorting algorithms. The assignments are fairly difficult (I have decent scripting experience), but not impossibly so.

The lectures are well done; however, the course should be deprecated. There are no active mentors and the directions and exercises do not reconcile. Lastly, the PyCharm package is prone to bugs.

I Didn't find it useful for learning as a beginner in algorithms and data structures. The level of the assignments was way too high than the content covered in the lectures and study material.

The time claimed as required for this course is wildly off.. It takes at least 3 times more than 4 hours, allotted for the weekly assignments. In a way, this makes this course very expensive.

Some instructors are unqualified to be instructors. They may be good as scientists but not for instructors. That may be sounds harsh but it is the truth. I would not reccommend it.

Explanations are unnecessarily confusing and of very poor quality especially from week 5. One already has to be an expert in algorithms before taking this course.
This courser does not give a good explanation of the topics specified in the course syllabus.
Without good resources it is very difficult to solve the problems .

The language of the lecturer is soo noisy and can't understand the words.
After Listening to the first lecture itself I'm unenrolling from the course.

Feedback in assignment is not good enough.
For example, for the points and segment, there are no correct answer in output as a reference.
Teachers and faculties are not very good at explanation. Moreover all of them had boring faces like they are not interested to teach us.

The content should be more beginner friendly. It quickly transitions pace to intermediate level. I found week 3 to 5 very difficult.
The programming technique - like DP, Greedy could have been better. I had to go to other website to better understand the concepts.

Poorly explanied in half of the course like Dynamic Programming, and all Pavel parts exluding the Change Problem

Some Algorithm are not clear, and the homework submission system is not friendly at all!

Things are just too complicated. Course could have easily been made easy to understand.

Teaching technique can be better and more interesting. Not so suitable for beginners.

Was useful to week 4
after that the explanation of the algorithms became very poor

Need To improve more about clearing the topics and also the assignment.
Videos are not sufficient to clear all the assignment problems.

I have just finished inspecting the first course, algorithm toolbox, to get a taste of the whole specialization and to compare other offerings in this e-platform.
I understand this is a difficult topic to teach but this is exactly the whole point of teaching ! Making complex topics simple to learn and digest.
This is my critique of the course in simple terms:
a) Quality of presentation slides; poor
b) Foreign english accent makes it difficult to follow
c) Disconnect between topics, I felt the three main techniques covered in the material were disjointed somehow. E.g. dynamic programming has serious gaps and the whole lessons felt like a big black box that you need to fill up with external resources (youtube, khan academy, google search)
d) mathematical background and terminology / jargon used overly bloated.

Has there been 0 star option I would definitely give it so. Of many courses which I have completed on platforms like cousera, udemy, edx etc. this one is worst of all. It not anything but wasted my time. I regret enrolling this course. Even after watching videos 2-3 times I often have to watch other videos from youtube. The way of explaining by teachers is not fascinatig. In a nutshell if you are reading this comment please do not waste your time in this course. Rather watch youtube videos or learn from other platform.

Great material, review- but course setup is not efficient. programming assignments are failed with zero useful feedback, so debugging is unnecessarily too time consuming. In practice error messages are more informative. I am all for encouraging independence and not hand holding, but when the grader says "failed test 7/16, unknown signal 11", Just telling students to "test your code more" is not a good use of their time nor an efficient and effective way of teaching.

Don't sign up for this course. The content delivery is poor. The way they designed the course homework is to test your code with many test cases. If your code fails, they don't share it with you what the test case is. You will spend a lot of time wasting to understand what's the problem with your code or algorithm. You can learn way more by spending same amount of time.
