TOP REVIEWS FROM JAVA PROGRAMMING: SOLVING PROBLEMS WITH SOFTWARE
Really enjoyed this course. Learned a lot. Only pulled my hair out in a few sections. I feel more confident in my coding and the understanding of how the programs created read the code.
You need a little more experience in coding that just the first course, or try not to leave everything by the end of the week(as I did) to find what you need for the assignments. Great course !
The course was well structured but I feel the content could have incorporated more concepts. I feel like there's so much basic JAVA that's not covered. But otherwise the teachers did a great job.
The start is confusing and I don't feel that the structure of java programs is well explained. However, the course is overall very good and once you get past the basics, is very rewarding.
