The course is buggy and thanks to bugs impossible to complete, I have payed 150 dollars so far and I cant complete the spechialization now thanks to black-box and white-box testing week 4 assignment 1.
The staff are unresponsive and they dont answer questions on the discussion forum, the assignments are vague and look like they have been put together in a hurry.
Link to external resources for the course has been hijacked for months and it leaads to malicious websites.
For a course on testing they sure as hell havent tested their own course.

There is not support of the teachers, the material is old because now we have Java 14 and some configurations doesn't work.

Very good & well constructed course material, especially the introduction to Gherkin language part. The only thing needs improvement is the automated assignment validation, it does not provide sufficient information for the learner to debug

Great course, covering important theoretical foundations. I really appreciate Dr Whalen's teaching, because he goes in depth into the topics. I also enjoyed his parts in the previous course of this specialization. Hope to see more of his materials.

Course is very interesting but, i think there are some problem in the system where it graded automatically. Same file i submitted repeatedly but got different comments. Anyway, the course was very exciting and mindstorming.

It was a good and fruitful course, a lot of technical material is presentend and the knowledge is present.... but the assignments at the end of the course proved a bit more difficult for the given material. Thanks to the instructors for their excellent work though!
But you have to take under serious consideration the AutoGrader strange behavior!
The grader needs to be better and more detailed at feedback, since when you are left with one these tasks to complete your course this is extremely frustrating! To be more precise, you end up constantly submitting your draft assignment files (with trial and error logic) to be prompted with error messages for your many errors, that are quite abstract and you are walking blind!

In this course you really learn what testing is, if you do not have experience it will cost you and I mean hat you should look for more theory and examples than those that come in this course, there is not much in the forums that you can verify more than the people who ask For the full course, some pogramming tasks are very simple (more thinking than writing) and others are really a monster if you want to get 10
In conclusion if you pass it you learn very, very well you could be at the basic intermediate level of Junit and cucumber tests

The theory and classes are very good, but the two final projects are very hard to get right, the grading could be better, either you pass perfectly or you dont', its' really finnicky, you make very small changes to your tests and hope that it passes each time, theres not much output feedback, so you really dont know which tests are failing and why, it makes it way harder than it should.

The final task is very difficult because It has uninformative feedback. I never knew which one of my tests is wrong. And I had to find errors in my package by sending a lot of combinations of my tests to the grader.
The most unobvious error in the buggy version was four recipes instead of three. It is not an error at all, because in this task we don't have Golden versions or requirements and even installation of CofeeMakerUI was written as if four recipes were a norm (4 recipes in the list).
Also, I don't understand why I have so small coverage. Maybe the issue is in the errors from mutant versions. On my computer coverage was higher than 90% in all checked classes.

Week 4's test instructions is not clear and no easy way to tell if one is in the right direction or not. Maybe give more hints about what to test for or at least indicate which bugs are not caught in the results feedback or something!

Would be an excellent course if there were still live support and if some of the required course materials were not becoming outdated. Very few people complete the course. Most get stuck at week 3 or 4. I got stuck at week 4.

Last 2 assignments are difficult to understand at first, but they're possible. Still, it takes way too long to get through them.

The course is fine but the assignments are extremely difficult to complete as no error is explanatory enough to say what exactly is missing in your code..No sample snippet is there to help.
The staff are unresponsive and they dont answer questions on the discussion forum, the assignments are vague and look like they have been put together in a hurry.It seems the people who hae put the course have left this course unattended as they never respond in the discussion forums.

Complete dissatisfcation with this course. Platform for checking submission of the assignments is not relaiable at all. For empty files, you may get a mark of 5/10: complete disappointment and 0 support for the problems. No one is checking the feedback from the learners. Learners should find something else if they want to progress. They can wait for weeks, and no one will unblock them or provide any feedback.

This course is definitely the worst of the University of Michigan QA Automation course series, it uses a bit outdated technologies and in week 4 there are a lot of compilation errors in the last assignments.
