Great into to Java, instructors have clearly put thought in to the format with the choose your own learning style videos, and additional coverage where it may be needed. These have been very helpful.

Fantastic course! I would recommend to anyone interested in learning the graph data structure in a fun and hands-on and engaging way! Definitely one of the best courses I have followed on Coursera.

Excellent course, if a little short. the instructors did a really good job of explaining the concepts.

Great course. Detailed content on the graph data structure.

It would be very, very beneficial if maybe one or two more videos were added to dive in-depth into ADTs and their method callback run-time analysis. Aside from that this class was educational and interesting as expected.

For me it was quite hard to understand some data structures because I did not attend the previous course on data structures. Despite that fact, I really enjoyed the course.

Useful course, but in one week can be problem with waiting for peer grade reviews

Very good course on graphs with some challenging projects. These really helped me nail down the concepts and get a deeper understanding of algorithms and data structures.

peer-view maybe cause the lateness of my certificate and maybe i should pay more money even if i have finished the course.

Very interesting programming assignment for the BFS, Dijkstra and A* methods. Great job with that.
The coverage of the TSP was weak -- room for improvement there. Perhaps include a programming assignment.
Overall, the course was a worthwhile investment of time.

Really hated "Just guess the closest of the multiple choice if your answers don't match. It's not always exact." as quiz instructions. That was just horrible. Figure out some better way of grading it.
The rest of the course was lovely, challenging and fun. I especially enjoyed the NP section.

I like this course. It helps me to break my fear of using complex data structure. It changed my approach to complex problems. Thanks to the Instructors :)

For me, it is easier to grasp algorithms that are written out than audio/video description. I would have given 5 stars if the course material accommodated different learning styles for each chapter. I had to do a fair amount of searching for information on the A Star search algorithm to the understand the subtle details.

Course was well paced. Assignments were relevant. Only shortcoming I believe was that the last two weeks of the course did not require any submission of a coding assignment. Only required a quiz.
I feel that the course would benefit from a requirement to submit some code each week.

It is a good course. It lets you to understand basic data structures and lets you code some data structures (mainly graph data structures) on your own (it takes some time to finish assignment). However, I think there are much more data structures in Java not covered in this course (like all kinds of trees), which means this course doesn't tell you EVERY MAJOR data structure in Java and their usage. It just tells you how to check javadoc on your own. I think an introduction about other frequently used data structures will be helpful.

I think it would be better if the lectures can go a little bit deeper on the topics in this course.

The course content and presentation was excellent. I love the large-project format of the classes in this specialization. I only wish this course had more resources for working offline, at a level that matches the previous courses in the specialization.

Nicely explained and challenging projects.

A great course as the previous courses for the specialization. I know that the week 4's materials are out of this specialization's scope but I think it's alright to delve in more about P and NP problems. That material is somehow still incomprehensible for me.

The contents were pretty basic for me, but they were presented clearly. All in all I liked the review this course gave me.

A few more graph algorithms and their implementations, if added to the course, would be nice.

This is a really useful course. The project is quite relevant, and the work with breadth first search, Dijkstra, and A* Search are really interesting!

I give really high marks for this course as the graphs are presented in a proper and practical manner. I have a suggestion to present the High Level of Graphs more in the area of Information theory. Otherwise it is nice approach and very good implementation of the material and exams.

Overall, I enjoyed this course. Especially from week 1 to 3 where the course contents were simply amazing.
It would be great if week 4 and 5 can engage the students like week 1 to 3, and the forum can be more alive.
