Was prepared and presented in a very special and superb way. I am glad I took and completed it. Thanks to my tutor Michael Hicks and special appreciation to coursera for making this possible for me.

Content is really valuable and actionable with a specific comeback for the student in terms of secure development, security and how to understand the origin of exploits and other cyber attacks

I wanna thank Dr Michael but in fact the course wants some editing. First you should write the prerequisite courses for it also a link for each one would be generous. Second we should have more practical exercise done by the instructors live to explain more.. Thank you

This course is totally recommended for developers and architects no matter the programming language you use.
In my opinion, the only thing that I missed was a project for the penetration testing week.
Contents are very well teached and the interviews were awesome.

The course was taught well and contained very interesting and relevant content. However, an increase of projects would be beneficial as I feel just spitting out facts learned from the videos doesn't really make the information stick in a meaningful way.

Some parts of the course were more advanced (Program Analysis), while some briefly touched the topic (Penetration Testing). Web Application Security was almost there, while Low Level Security was just right!
Keep up the good work, recommended +++++

Solid course in software security. Really clear explanation of looking under the covers of how buffer overflows work. However, the virtual machines are four years out of date and getting them running for the labs were a major pain.

I really enjoyed the hands-on C exploit labs. That deserves a six week course on its own. The rest of the material provides a good introduction to tooling and general concepts. I feel like it is two different courses, in a way.

Great Course!!! Awesome course material.
It would be of great help if there could be video on setting up the projects for quiz.
As lot of people may from from non linux background and may have not in touch with c language.

Great Course. I like that it offered the interviews at the end of each lesson. I didn't know anything about the style of fuzzing or pen testing prior to taking this course. I need to delve into the learning hands

Enjoyed the course, would have liked to have in video questions for all videos. I think they stopped after week 4 . I would also have liked to see more projects or more depth to the last project.

The course is great but it would be better to have it over 8 weeks to diffuse the amount of valuable information in Week 5. Also, charts should be numbered for easier references in discussions.

Although it was very interesting and enlightening course and the content of the course was excellent, I would like to point out that the learning technique used was a bit monotonous.

Super focused on C but useful. It's hard to do the first couple of weeks without C experience, the rest of the course is super interesting so totally recommended.

very nice course, covering the most essential topics related to software security. For the curios students, it should provide a good start to dive deep!

The course overall is very good, I hope to have a more specialized course in C/C++ languages with more practices, as I work more with embedded systems/C

Could have gone more deeper in some of the topics which were covered at very high level. Overall a good introduction to the subject matter.

Nice course. One remark, it is necessary to review version compatibility of mentioned virtualbox against today OS versions, mainly macOSX.

Awesome! It would have been nicer to go deeper into the practical, pen testing part, but I enjoyed this course anyway.

Informational but, don't expect to be top-notch after taking this. buffer overflow section well explained.

The course focus to much in an old code language like c. This language is dying. At least should be C++.

Seems outdated (as of 2014). Quiz for week 5 is strange and not easy with the provided material.
