What people are saying

final exam

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.

introduction to python

A good introduction to Python, but the course is a rather short & I think more could have been said about genomics-specific functions, modules, etc.

Really good introduction to Python, Genomics in the two together.

quiz questions

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.

final project

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.

very good

Very good course.

Very good--perhaps a little slow for those who have already learned a half-dozen languages.

more advanced

The course material goes from basic to more advanced content in a very catching way.

The best introductory python tutorial I've come across.......concise, very well organized.......I wish this team come up with a series of courses gradually introducing more advanced topics in this area.....
