TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO PYTHON PROGRAMMING
Very good introductory course: the final assignment was sufficiently challenging that I had to visit the discussion forums and review online resources to assist with completion.
Sometimes, it is difficult for a total beginner to perform the given assignments, as the instruction and sources provided way too little.
course is very helpful for learning python and assignment questions are really good. Thank you Coursera for providing quality content.
I can't wait to enroll for the 100% online master at Penn U. The instructor in this course has shown a great value of this introduction to python programming.
