As usual, complex arguments explained in simple terms!\n\nSome problems are really tough! (e.g. there's a problem from Google Code Jam).\n\nThank you for this course!

Very Very Challenging Course , it test your patience and rewards is extremely satisfying. Lot of learning on a complicated subject of NP-Hard problems.

A lot of material covered in this course. The assignments are more challenging than in the previous courses of the specialization.
It is overall a great final and a very complete specialization.
Thank for putting together all this work.

Learned a lot. great material. Tough homework
I appreciated that the grader demanded good implementations but I think it would have been good to have a little guidance as to how to get there.

The problems are really challenging, thank you! However, the instructor is not very active in the discussion forum, which is a pity when you really need help and get stucked in the problem set.

Very Educational and Enlightening. The only criticism I have is that the starter files generally need more modification than indicated to create a successful program.

The only thing I missed in this course (and specialization) was more visual, intuitive approach to explanation. Programming assignments are rewarding.

Excellent course. One star less just because there are not very clean test cases for one particular problem among programming assignments

Thank you so much. You are doing such a great work but i appreciate if you explain week-2 (linear programming) in detail. Thank you.

Very informative course with challenging assignments. It will surely make your data structure concepts clearer.

While I like the content of the course but I felt too much of topics were crammed into one single course. I had to struggle a lot to grasp the concepts on advanced algorithms by just relying on video lectures so I had to look around in the internet for additional resources. Nonetheless it was a satisfying experience though it took me a lot of time and effort to complete the assignments.

A lot of really useful algorithms are covered in this course, however some of the presentation is annoyingly sparse on details (particularly in the section on network flows).

Lectures are mostly good. Assignments not. They are often very difficult in an uninteresting way such as unintuitive input formats and / or template code.

Too much emphasis on implementation details (99%), so one doesn't get a great intuitive understanding of the logic of algorithms.

Course content is very good, however the lectures are hard to follow because the examples are always at the end.

The lectures are very abstract so, I had some difficulty in solving the assignment problems.

I'd give it more stars, but, sadly, when I started the specialization, the professors were very responsive and active in the forums, giving help and guidance.
However, more than a year after the specialization started, (this is the fifth course), the professors were totally absent, precisely when I needed their help!
I hope they'll be back or assign someone else to answer the questions of the students in the forums.

I really dislike Daniel Kane's teaching style!!! His slides are rough and lack of details, the structure of his lectures is loose. Every time I met a Unit taught by Kane, I have to spend much more time on videos and assignments than other Units. This makes me very annoyed -- why can't this teacher be more serious on teaching just like other teachers in this course??? :-(

I have finished the specialization. The first 4 parts were more or less useful. Unfortunately, Advanced Algorithms and Complexity is a poorly implemented course. Some interesting assignments but lectures are pedagogically lacking (e.g., the Simplex Method isn't covered at all).

Inadequate student and teacher participation on forums, leaving students to figure things out without assistance or collaboration. Insufficient explanation of math concepts required to fully understand lectures.
