Great course for refreshing your python basics, and any beginner looking to pick up Python basics will be in a comfortable spot after completing this course and a bit of practice with the assignments.

Great for a fundamental course. I have to admit that I had learnt python a few years back and was using this as a practice and revision course. But I learnt a lot more which I can add to my knowledge.

I really liked the course as an introduction to python programming. It would have even more great if we could have had more programming assignments for practice.

I thought we would see more han programming with Python. If I wanted to learn to program just with Python, I would have search for a specifical course.

Even though instructions are perfectly clear, this course uses Python 3.4 version which is really old. Hoping you upgrade the course materials.

Should provide more examples and exercises for every topic. Research the web for additional exercises if you want to learn something here.

I liked the Assignments but the course was very high-level. Can be a good review.

Assignments and assessments took at least 2 to 3 times as long as described.

I'm new to Python and to programming in general. I found this course to be very difficult and not at all meant for beginners. I only passed because of blog posts and Github notes. The lectures were okay but definitely feels very rushed. More examples and practice exercises would have helped me understand better. The quizzes are way too complex, I failed most of them multiple times. I liked Jennifer's videos and I felt like I could follow what she's saying. As for Paul, though? I kind of felt like he's a robot. He talks too fast and I could barely follow. I hoped that this course would teach in a way that would be fun and understandable for those with no background in programming. I thought I would be eased into it but it felt like I was dropped off in the middle of a jungle with no clue what to do. This course would have been great for those with a good programming background and a solid foundation, but not for beginners. I learned a few things, though. And I'm still thankful for the team behind this course for their hard work.

There are issues with this course. My biggest gripe is that if you do not pass the tests on your first try, the questions and answers will change on your second time around. Obviously this is fine for the questions that you got wrong however it also changes the ones you got right. This makes the tests take MUCH longer than necessary and there isn't necessarily any extra learning gained from this.
However, even with the problems with this course, you WILL learn how to use Python. I feel that the course succeeded in that regard - but I'm not sure that this course provides any benefits over following some YouTube tutorials.
In conclusion, if you would like to learn how to use Python and don't mind something that is challenging and time consuming, take this course.

I just finished Lesson 1 and I have already found some issues:
They said that if you divide 2 int you will always get a float number... That is incorrect because it depends on your Python's version.
Ex: Python 2.7.13 (default, Jan 19 2017, 14:48:08)
[GCC 6.3.0 20170118] on linux2
>>> 8 / 7
What is the value of x after this statement x = 12 / 3.
I answered 4 and the system considered my answer wrong. I presume the correct answer was x=4
What is the value after executing this round(45.342).
I answered 45.0 and again, the system considered it wrong. (This is really unacceptable that the system is unaware that 45 == 45.0)
I will give this course the benefit of the doubt and keep going on with my next lesson.

If you are an absolute beginner, do not waste your time. Course material covers the basics of python, but quizzes are more extensive and require extra preparation. Good if you have someone to guide you through and provide with extra explanations on what and how to solve the questions; or have enough time and self-confidence to look for extra resources on your own.
I also found code-windows within questionnaires during videos and quizzes quite annoying (due to double scroll bars: - one in the code window and another in question window. This prevented from seeing the entire question/possible solutions).

As a complete beginner, I was disheartened to have the same questions as others from as far back as 4 years ago in the course discussion forum and have the material presented not updated to reflect the information to answer these questions. It's frustrating and shows me a lack of actual involvement of the instructors that they won't update their course material. If I wanted to have to research all the answers to my questions, I wouldn't have taken a course.

The course is indeed good with outstanding professors, yet the version of python taught in this class is very old. I would love, that the University of Toronto update its course to a recent version of python because for some students said version does not work on their updated laptops
