According to other learners, here's what you need to know

final exam in 16 reviews

Especially during the final exam the way you approach the questions can result in a running time from seconds to hours.

The final exam was more difficult than the course content, but I think it was critical for ensuring that I was able to apply the course content.

You should give more instruments to take the final exam, I had to study mostly on my own because the material was not sufficient (at least for me, who has just started programming).

Course content is ok, but didn't prepare well enough for the final exam Excellent Course.

The Final Exam was way too difficult compared with the knowledge provided by the lessons.

The course material did not cover what we needed for the weekly quizzes (particularly in Week 3 & 4) and the final exam was immensely difficult.

Additionally, the written instructions for the final exam did not even cover some of the questions that needed to be answered i.e.

The final exam is a good challenge for beginners.

the final exam file not being available) had obviously not been fixed since the last version of the course.

Not enough material provided to successfully complete final exam.

final exam was tough This course is advanced and fast-paced.

Compared to the lectures, the final exam was very difficult.

The final exam was quite a challenge...

Something I think can improve is the question in the quiz and final exam, particularly quiz 3 and the final exam.

amount of time in 3 reviews

And considering the short amount of time I have, this course taught me a lot; however I needed lot of external help to finish it thoroughly.

There was no detail in the later materials (Weeks 3 and 4) in uses/applications which made it virtually impossible to finish the course without spending an incredible amount of time outside of the class attempting to learn material.

final project in 6 reviews

The reviewer above me is absolutely correct, you really do not learn enough about programming to complete the final project.

This one does not help, and the final project is impossible to complete if you are new to Python.

final project almost impossible based on lectures Can't easily understand one of the instructors.

The final project was hard but fun!

quiz questions in 5 reviews

There's very little in the course material that will assist students in actually learning to code prior to the final exam, as most of the quiz questions simply ask students to determine which given lines of code will produce the desired output.

The quiz questions are annoying because the indentation is messed up.

Final exam is much more difficult than the quiz questions and requires significant effort.

In just the first 2 weeks I found several quiz questions that are not correct.

Additional feedback and explanations around some quiz questions may be useful to add for future.

well explained in 3 reviews

A more detailed course would have he Clear but some topic are not well explained and to pass the final quiz is necessary further detailed study.Very useful the help of the Mentor good starting point to learn python to analysis Genomics data.

Very well explained concepts and easy to follow.

last week in 2 reviews

Thank you so much Although courseware video is well doneAssigment are poorly designed and imbalancedFar too easy on end of each weekLast week final assignment overly difficult and poorly guidedThe sense of progress is very small after completing the courseBiology meets programming from UCSD is better designed on pedagogy and code challenges level.Can't recommend not worth investing time or 50 bucks Very poorly organised material and illustration Really fun and well explained but very basic.

Although the last week took giant steps and was a little bit unclear, especially with the introduction to Biopython.

But besides the difficulty of the last week, this course was really great.
