Good and practical training approach to solve real worlds problems. Assignments and quizzes are quite challenging and interesting. Greatly motivates us towards programming and problem solving skills.
Actually, before I start this course I had not a good idea about OOP concept such as constructors, HashMap.now I have fair confidence about that. thank you duke university making such an arrangement.

Wow. This was a surprisingly challenging class. In the best of ways though. Some of the questions in the quizzes need some rewriting to clarify, but still very fantastic overall.

The homework is really helpful to master data structure in Java, while some of it is redundant. Learning this course takes more time than I expected, but it gives me a solid basis.

This is a very nice course. The teachers speak clearly and explain very well. The subject used to teach Java (cryptography) is interesting. Many thanks!
Kind regards, Wim

learned so much during this course. i never thought i'd be able to break the Vigenere cipher and i'm so glad that i was able to. thank you so much, instructors!

Codebreaking made the homework quite engaging, and the lectures and coursework made sense. Week3 is a little heavier than the other weeks, so bear than in mind!

Thanks for the great course. But it would be very usefull to specify some of time the student spend studying to pass the course in the certification.

Very nice course for beginning java learner, specific the seven steps to design a program. I would study these over and over in the future. Cheers!

As usual, very interesting and practical tasks to complete, which immediately gives an indication, how and where it can be implemented or used.

It's great,especially the mini-project and it is quite a complex problem, it is well planned so that we can reach the solution step by step.
by Josh H•
Great class. Really enjoyed it. The guided lessons were just challenging enough for someone who has very limited programming knowledge.

At the end of the course noticed that I can write the code almost without thinking ... I was pleasantly surprised, thanks to the mentors
by Borhan U•
it was a great course to enroll. This course helped me to clear my concept about hashmap, arraylist, and taught me their various use.

I loved the you teaches us.
I loved the the step by step way to write the code.
Sanuj, with lots of love from India!!

Even if Java language isn't the most "beautiful" one nowadays, it still the base if you want to understand some programs nowadays.

Applying JAVA to the problems of (ancient) cryptography. Very entertaining application examples with lots of hands-on experience.
by Frank R•
Very challenging. For absolute beginners maybe a little bit hard. Above all, you also get some programming experience in Java.
by Lotachukwu I•
Excellent tutorials and very challenging problem sets! I would highly recommend this course for anyone looking to learn Java!
by Bogdan U•
As always, very thorough and helpful (learning by doing "countless" tasks is a great way to go, from my perspective). Thanks!
