I liked it, it costed me a little because I am not a C programmer with big experience, and this course I feel is focused on C programmers that want to know how to "translate" their code to C++
Just right for programmers seeking to update their skills to the new V11 C++. I recommend getting the book by the author that helps along with a text or Coursera course on Algorithms.
- Assumptions about the student are not clear, before starting the course.
Instructor examples are not practical in all contexts.
Jump to dijkstra in very second week, without clarity on major C++ concepts and examples, is too much an expectation from the student switching from C to C++ for the first time.
Confusion with deadline for assignments.
too many lectures during later week courses, as if the effort is to crunch everything in that week and complete the course.
If its spaced properly with examples and problems over few more weeks, it would help.

I would like thank Prof. Ira Pohl for the excellent lectures in the course
C++ for C programmers Part A. The build up of C++ using C as a
background gave me a good understanding of the various features
of C++ and how one can make use of these features to write
programs in a good idiomatic programming style. The lectures
presented with a blend of data structures and algorithms provided
much insight into programming in C++. Looking forward to the Part
B of the course.

Good course ! I must advice this course for those students who are proficient in C and have accumulated a good experience regarding the same. I includes great assignments and tests which will help you in understanding the concepts in a much better way and the students can also refer discussion forums to know about most common doubts students make in their programs and can also help them for their respective issues.

I was looking for a long time for a C++ online curs. Although there are quite a few availeble on different learning platforms, most of them start either from very begining or present only brieflly the modern features of the language. This one, presumming a certain level of knowledge in C programming, satisfy my need for information regarding C++ programing language.

From this course, you can learn some inspiring features of C++11. Moreover, you can grasp a basic learning about programming with C++ as a beginner. The homework assignment is also challenging, usually it takes me a whole day to finish the program. But those homework is a good practic and will prompt you to work harder and deeper on programming with c++.

Very good intro to C++. Ira Pohl was always very clear, explained details and provided good examples. Programming assignments very worthwhile and good way to reinforce learning.
Note one of the books is very expensive on Amazon close to $200 (used) likely due to course being free and high demand. Without the book assignments can take longer.

It's a pretty good course. The professor does actually cover a lot of useful stuff introduced in the latest versions of C++ which enhance ease of coding. There are two assignments on graph theory which are good learning experiences. Some programming background is a must to the take the course since basic concepts are assumed to be known.

This course is very beneificial for a computer engineer as it covers all the mathematics algorithm required in the programming and the algorithms are explained in an excellent way .The concepts are much clearly explained so that one can understand and also examples are provided in order to make one understood.

Excellent course with comparative learning between C and C++. Very usefull for people who already know a lot of things about C and C++ yet find it difficult to differentiate between them. This course also improves your knowledge about C++ and sets foundation to the basics of other languages similar to C++.
創建者 Adwait K•
This course was better than previous one.I have generated a good amount of skill and knowledge due to this course.Just I have 1 problem regarding sound of the course the voice of Prof. is too low to listen kindly note down this problem.But Course is extremely helpful.

ITS A NICE COURSE, REALLY A GOOD COURSE BY LOOKING AT COURSE CONTENT IF YOU ARE THINKING THAT IT IS GOING TO BE BASED ON DATA STRUCTURES ONLY......NO ITS NOT LIKE THAT THIS COURSE COVERS ALL THE BASIC PARTS OF C++. AND MAKES YOUR BASIC STRONG AND GOOD ENOUGH FOR PROGRAMMING.
This course is full of joy and challange, all in a single package. At the same time it approachs C++ language and idioms, it discourse the foundations of Graph theory with details on shortest path and minimum spanning tree. Highly recommended.

This course has helped me to gain a fair understanding of the recent advances in C++ and has also enriched my knowledge of data structures and algorithms. I look forward to taking up part B of this course as well. Thank you very much!
創建者 Vineet K S•
Nice course with content focused on the extra things C++ brings - STL. However it would have been better if Inheritance also covered in this course. Also learned about Graphs through this course. Exercises were tough but were good.
創建者 Aninkan G•
Power packed course with detailed programming assignments and compact lessons on c++ programming by experts in the relevant field of study.Thank you coursera for providing such a wonderful programming knowledge enhancing course.
創建者 Burt C•
This is a great intro/refresher course for C++. While it is based on C++ 11 (and prior), it is a fun course that will refresh your skills in graph theory, the STL, classes and friends. Definitely worth the effort.
創建者 Jian L•
The best course for those who have a background of C programming and data structure&algorithms. The homeworks are more difficult and time consuming than other courses, but you can learn a lot from them.
創建者 Fangda C•
A very good courser, especially for people like me that have a lot experience in coding c program but want to learn something more to advance my career. I'll recommend this course to my friend.
創建者 Anuj S•
Great course. People who have knowledge of C but are new to OO programming should definitely take this course. It would not hurt to include more exercises in the course.
創建者 Miguel G•
This was very good course to learn about the differences between C and C++. I have been C programmer for some time and never had a C++ introduction until this course.
創建者 Sebastian W•
I really enjoyed the course. I like the instructor's way of explaining things and definitely learned a lot.
A big thanks to you, Mr. Pohl. Keep up the great work.
創建者 Goutam D•
A much needed course for all those students who have strong fundamentals in C Programming but lack the OOP skills in C++.
Still there is a scope of improvement.
創建者 Suleman S•
Best Course on Internet. It Covers Basics of C++ to Advanced Concepts. It covers the most important topics of programming, Graph theories, and many more.
創建者 Tushar T•
It is an awesome course to move to c++ from C .
Includes all the essential elements needed in C programming.
i.e the best course available to learn C++.

the course had some good algorithms and ds topics which was taken care of so smoothly.As each concept was taught with relating to real life examples.
