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.

Course material is good, but assistance is zero.
If I am paying for a course, I expect some assistance in order to succeed.
I am talking about feedback about my questions, or the grading system showing test case data in case your code fails.
Because that's what happened to me and because there's no test data, I don't know why my code fails, therefore I am stuck and no learning can happen. For a paid learning this is unacceptable.

The videos and explanations are very poor. Most of the time the instructors are reading off a script, and everything feels fake. By reading off a script they are forced to "hand-wave" and do not explain concepts covered completely.
The only thing I liked about this course were the problem sets, which were interesting to do. Will not buy rest of specialization, feels like this is just a cash cow for UCSD.

I would say that the lecture part of this course is quite poor. The professor presents abstract concepts and pseudo-code without giving an example. It takes me a long time to figure out what the professor wants to say. He should've given out the example before explaining the concepts. The contents though is decent, and I learn a lot in his course.

Course content was good. Explanation of various problems, solutions and algorithms could be made easier to understand by providing more (intuitive) examples. Overall, the course is good at gaining broad understanding of the different paradigms of algorithms.

The course is Highly dependable on math concepts and some of the examples are pure math,which means if some doesn't have a solid math foundation,it will be difficult for him to get the full concepts clearly , also the assisments is not effecient.

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.

Need To improve more about clearing the topics and also the assignment.
