Great into to Java, instructors have clearly put thought in to the format with the choose your own learning style videos, and additional coverage where it may be needed. These have been very helpful.

I loved this course! The course videos and the projects sharpened my idea about some of the toughest concepts of Java and OOP. I recommend this course to anyone interested in learning OOP in Java. ☺

For all who want to understand object-oriented programming this is the course that should be taken.

Very good Course. Best explanations through good examples. If assignments were programming rather than objective it would have been much better.

this course is truly amazing!
even though i already know the concepts of OOP and Event-Driven Programming
but this course helped me to implement those concepts in a full Program
i jut hope to get more informative helpful steps in weekly assignments
Appreciate the time and effort of the team responsible for this course ^_^
thanks UC San Diego professors
thanks Coursera Team

I had some difficulty with English (I am not a native speaker): in some lessons it comes quickly and then you need the use of subtitles. I also studied some concepts with the use of Java manuals.

It could provide deeper concepts with more examples.

I learnt some good tricks on this course, it came at the this time for what I was doing at work. I recommend this course as it covers most of the basics, and encapsulated difficult parts, all you do call a method to do something.

Great introduction to Java. Gives you an opportunity to play with several different libraries from the start, rather than learning the basics with just text input and output like most courses, which is really cool. No peer review, just quiz questions that can only be answered if the assignment is completed correctly. The assignments are therefore not particularly challenging -- you get out of this class what you put in!

After almost finish this section, find that the most thing I have done is stuck on Casting and solve this problem (It takes 2 hours frustration + 30 minutes the rest).

Coursera gives Universities the flexibility to show their own style of teaching and sharing knowledge.
I really love this course, good project.
However, good course is not only the instructor's' responsibility, but also the students' active involvement.
I rate 4 because we need more students get involved in developing this course like creating wiki notes.
Extra material to read etc.

A good course and beautiful lectures. But the programming assignments should be little more tough.

It was a good course. If you are looking a general introdution to Computer Science with Java elements, then go for it. My intent was to simply go over syntax and some intricacies of Java. It is slowly paced in this manner. Nevertheless, I've completed a 6-week course in about a week (not working everyday) and managed to get a certificate.
The structure let's you skip things you already know (like searching algorithms) and implement stuff on your own. One thing that they could have addes is ... code checking. A self-validation is not good when it comes to veryfing real programming skills. However, I guess Java grader would be more complicated than already existing coursera's python grader.
All in all 4/5, could be better, I don't think Java itself was the main focus of this course. Good very intro to the topic.

Good, well paced course. Big advantage is the short duration of the video-lectures. I prefer a few short ones over one long lecture.

Not a five star review because this course is more like an introduction to programming on Java and best fit for a beginners. So that said this course is more about programming tools and project setup than a programming at all.

Its been a productive journey since my concepts about OOPS are crystal clear. I would surely enroll in more courses provided by UC,San Diego.

Es un curso básico de programación en Java, un poco lento si ya tienes experiencia pero comunica muy bien los conceptos con explicaciones claras.
