I liked very much, but some problems to submit the exercises ...I wasted a lot of time to find where were the problems... you need to submit the exercise in the order they appear...it took me a long time to figured out ...

For me this has been the first course I've taken in coursera and it wasn't a disappointment at all. The lectures, although a bit hard to understand at the beginning, become clearer when you get to the assignments. The instructor was great at the explanations, and the forum was a very good resource as well. I have strong programming background in languages other than python, but it's a really easy language to work with and we didn't get to any advance feature.

I'll hope for new offering from this instructor, and hopefully a continuation of the topics from this course, like linear programming.

Simply stated, this course was a disappointment. I initially had high hopes, based on the description. However, I found a few aspects disturbing. The first was the use of a relatively recent feature of the latest version of Python. The second was that the optional text was not offered until well into the course. The third was that the lectures did not seem to match the quiz material. The fourth was that several of the student-posted forum questions went unanswered even through dozens of requests for clarification.

My technical background should have been sufficient, based on the course description, but I withdrew from the class in frustration. I note that I have been pleased with several other online technical classes, and some are even rated in this forum.

I will not attempt another offering from this instructor.
