Undeniably one of the best computer science courses. The advertising isn't false! This course permanently changed my perspective on hardware and software along with the relationship between the two...

An excellent course provided by phenomenal professors! Everything is broken down into simple, easily understandable portions, and leaves you with a clear idea how to proceed to solve a given problem.

Digital Design could have been included as a part of the curriculum which would have explained the inner workings of all the memory modules. A more deeper understanding of the clock could have been provided. The fact that we have a different clock for the the execution of the micro instructions could have also been explained.

This course is amazing! just the fact that the teachers can explain something that is very difficult and make it feel that is easy, it's pretty impressive and helpful. The only reason why a don't give all starts is because the teachers sometimes repeat the same thing over and over and make the videos feel a little bit slow.

Might say it's really an eye opener on how a Computer is fundamentally build. I personally always had a hard time understanding mathematical abstractions and digital circuits, but i must say this course opened up the doors to these areas as well. Looking forward to Part 2.

The HDL syntax I felt was a bit fiddly, and sometimes hard to find the relevant technical details such as language definitions in the videos, but overall a very interesting and enjoyable course. Happy to pay for it despite it essentially being available free.

O curso tem a proposta de servir para qualquer pessoa que deseja aprender arquitetura de computadores sem ter nenhum conhecimento prévio. Creio que um leigo completo no assunto talvez tenha dificuldades. Fora isso, é uma excelente ferramenta de aprendizado!

I was skeptical of HDL at first, and wished that the course had used a more industry-friendly language. I'm glad the instructors addressed this in the course. The HDL language used in the course is simple enough that hardly any time is "wasted" learning it.

Amazing course! I learned a lot. A bit of a downside: It is much harder than you might think if you are not in a STEM background. Getting my head wrapped around the binary inputs and outputs is driving me crazy. But to finish it is very rewarding!

A thoroughly enriching and illuminating tour of the fundamentals of computation. After completing this course I am now able to better understand how computers function which provides a tangible benefit when writing software.

I've really enjoyed this course. It was a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to part 2.
It can be a little tough to simply write HDL though and without the Nand Game (nandgame.com) I would have found this much more difficult.

The course was very informative and interesting , I had a tough time doing the assignments but it was worth learning.Definitely a interesting insight into the building blocks of a computer.

It's such a cool way to learn the subject! Although the lectures and the teachers were great, some assignments were difficult, even burdensome. Anyways, I really recommend this course.

Great course to know about the fundamentals about the hardware of the computer is built. Though most of it is abstracted out, you still get a better picture than just doing programming

one of the best courses one can take to understand how computers are build from ground up
The course is organized in such a way such that its very easy to understand and relate

Fun course to take. Makes you realize how much we depend on abstraction in our world. A few notes on documentation (your own code) and version-control would complete it...

Very informative book, although does not seem to go into great depth. The projects were not super difficult either. A great way to start learning how computers work.

Muy interesante, me gustó mucho. Sin embargo, siento que en las tareas más difíciles debería haber otro tipo de apoyo. Pero en general, excelente curso.

Good, but not very challenging. If you wanted to learn you could but if you were just doing it for the grade you could skate by.

I wish the memory part was a little bit deeper and that we developped the registers from the nand chip as well

Good course, very challenging. I find the resources to be a little bit outdated in their presentation.
