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 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.

The course is oriented towards developing basic algorithmic thinking and skills. It's a great course for beginners.
The one thing that can be improved is to more it a bit more practice-oriented as in terms of programming questions.
I took this course mostly because of the exercise problems, the problems are interesting and you can learn a lot, the lectures are good, but still rooms for improvement, so far so good, looking forward to the next course. Thanks!

This course has very challenging problems specially the last 3 weeks. I think that it could be better in the sense of explaining more deeply about dynamic programming, and it should also provide easier exercises for warming up.

Decent course, in the last couple of weeks the difficulty really picks up and the provided lectures are no longer really sufficient to figure things out, but as long as you know how to do your own research its still manageable.

It would be great if there is a session at the end of each lesson that illustrate the lesson through a problem in less academic way but overall the course is great and walks through very important problems
with great lecturers.

The course is well structured and homework is interesting and challenging, minus 1 star only because some teachers have really heavy accents and bad English pronunciation, so I had to mute sound and watch videos with subtitles.

The material is decent. It could be presented in a better way. Algorithms are mostly just explained verbally, which is sometimes hard to follow. It would help if some of the algorithms are explained by writing on the slides.

The accent from teachers would be a little bit annoying, also the fact that most of the topics (incomes, outcomes from the programs) are unclear for a naive student. But for the rest, is a great way to introduce programming.

This course is excellent. Many lecturers with many tips, techniques and experience. However, some lecturers' English accent are not very good. Therefore, sometimes it is hard to understand the whole content of some lessons.

The course was awesome ..The content ,the problems were all thought provoking - couple of times i had issues understanding the language of the instructor , sans that it is a very very good course and a must take i would say

This course is great to start learning algorithm. I didn't know any algorithms before this course. this helped me to kick start my competitive programming journey. Hope I'll complete the rest of the specialization soon!

very good course and material but more examples and illustrations are needed specially towards the end of the course I barely made it solving the bare minimum to pass,yet it i still a great course and i learned a lot .

It's one of the awesome courses available in Coursera where you can learn different types of algorithms for solving complicated problems in an easy way. It also taught me how to solve any problem in an efficient way.

The dynamic programing part was not up to the mark. I had to go through many lectures on youtube (specially of MIT) to understand the same topics. However, the Placing Parenthesis problem was explained properly.

Great Algorithm course. It would be better if they can give more general and helpful guidelines on design Dynamic Programming Algorithm because it is really hard to come up with the correct recurrence relations.

The course was really helpful for me to understand Algorithms which is the basics of programming. However, I feel the 'dynamic programming' part had to be elaborated a bit more. It seemed a little bit rushed.

Great for review of algorithms. I've seen most of these in university Algorithms courses, but this was a great refresher. Coming back to these now, I have a greater understanding than when I first saw them.

There are great subjects and in general the course are great too. the only thing that i would like to mention is that there are some places that should be explained more deeply especially in case of week 6.

It was a good course on algorithms, having many programming problems to practice including some standard problems. Which helps in building concepts and can use these concepts for solving many variations.
This is a very good course to learn some the basics of algorithms. It is also good for people who want to polish their algorithm skill. Very good for learning Dynamic Programming and sorting techniques.

good technique implemented for learning and exploring about big data(primitive) handling, and other study stuffs and additional slides are quite helpful to understand algorithm and its implementation.
автор: Zamirbek A•
The content is full and helpful. I've learned a lot.
Some instructors should've used the marker while explaining to walk through the codes instead of just putting a slide and talking on the background.

Great course. I would suggest to improve pronunciation of some of the lecturers, add more material, lower the concentration of the material (by prolonging or splitting the course). Great work, thanks!
автор: Jules K•
As the title suggests, this course will give you some tools/techniques in terms of algorithms design and implementation. You will probably also learn from doing the programming assignments. Enjoy!

Great course for stepping into algorithms. But some portions have bad lectures like for example explaining the theoritical reasoning for finding safe move in week 3 greedy algorithm is very poor.
