The course is fairly advanced and you would need to review the materials many times to understand the concept. The assignments are definitely fun and not as straightforward as other courses.

Superb study material. Learnt a lot during this course. I am not much into mathematical stuff, but got a hang of how to break problems and improve efficiency through parallelism.

Very good introductory theoretical foundation for parallell algorithms, and background for
the Big Data Analysis with Scala and Spark course.

very good course. It will be better if more reading material could be offered. The content in the lecture is a little bit hard to understand.

I learned a lot about improving algorithms to run in a parallelized manner which is more efficient when having more than one cpu/computers

More emphasis on Parallel Data Structures is needed, course is relatively simple as compared to previous courses from same specialisation

Wish Mr. Odersky would've taught this course as well but it quickly lived up to my expectations. I really enjoyed doing the assignments.

Very interesting material, especially the prefix sum algorithms about, how to transform a sequential problem into a parallel problem.

Good course, though there is sometimes too much mathematics, what distracts from the purpose to learn parallel paradigm in Scala.

Very interesting, with difficult examples and task. Spent a lot of time analyzing weekly assignments but it was totally worth.

It's an interesting and useful course, but I was surprised it's not contain any information about Futures and Promises.

This course is not simple, and the second assignment is hard. But I made it through, and happy with the achievement.

Great course -- I learned a lot.
Parts of it were very heavy too, and not all of the lecture material was examined.

The material in the course is not complete, but it's perfect as introductory course in parallel programming.

Excellent course !!! A must take in my opinion for a better and deep understanding of parallel programming.

Quite interesting but sometimes I would have spent some minutes more to explain some core concept.

This is one of the most dense and solid courses on Coursera and I really enjoyed tackling it
