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.

A much needed course for all those students who have strong fundamentals in C Programming but lack the OOP skills in C++.\n\nStill there is a scope of improvement.

This is a terrible course. The lectures are devoid of meaningful information, redundant at times and do not really follow a logical progression. The first HW assignment is trivial, then the 2nd is extremely difficult and time consuming. The most difficult task is just trying to figure out what the HW is really asking.
My main reason for taking this course versus taking one of the many highly rated free courses was the graded homework. I was hoping to get meaningful feedback on my coding so I could improve. Well, the homework is peer graded and the feedback is not very beneficial.
In short, a complete and total waste of time and money.

Weak on C++, strong on graph theory.

Part A is not that interesting for me as I already have some C++ exp. But Part B seems promising. Plus most of the time in the video I have to see profession's face rather than C++ code.

Horrible. There just a little of C++ on this course. Even the slides has typos which are not acceptable for a course representing an university. The C++ code are very weak as well. You WILL NOT learn C++ with this course.

This course is garbage. It doesn't cover or test ANY important feature of C++! No derived classes, no namespaces, no discussion of the STL or special member functions, just for a start.
There is no possible way that passing the practice final exam can be considered a meaningful for understanding C++.

I am highly disappointed with the policy of providing the homework only to the paid participants. It seems this is gearing towards another means of making bussiness when it comes to education.
I understand that grading and providing feedback requires effort and the fees charged is required to the cover those cost, but like before we must have an option to get access to the homework, allowing us to apply our learning while it maybe be acceptable not to have any feedback or certificate on the course completion.
Currently, the closed homework policy goes against the basic objectives of MOOC and I hope it is reconsidered.

This is a GREAT course. First take, I never programed with C. I had sufficient experience with Python, R, Matlab etc. Even though the instructor continuously emphasize that attendants need at least 1 year experience in C (every time I heard it, I rolled my eyes), the assignments (Dijkstra and Jarnik-Prim) were not hardcore. The instructor also reviewed a LOT of contents from C, so I never felt disadvantaged. C++ is not a difficult language to learn (until now at least) and I felt joy. Even though I disagree with the order of some videos, they provide great assistance in finishing the homework. I spent almost 3 weekends and 2 nights of working days, so not that much time. I would like to thank the instructor for providing such a great opportunity on this platform.

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.

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.

Very great course.Course is well taught and well organized ,It is not for beginners if you are programming at least from one year this is for you.

This course assumes some basic knowledge in C. I really appreciate prof. Ira Pohl's approach to explain things in details and fill some gaps students might have rather that assuming everything is perfectly clear. Some might find the pace to be on the slow side but please understand it is intended for people with various background and experience. You will also appreciate the way prof. Pohl elaborates some of the fundamental algorithms and data structures in a very clear and well articulated manner.

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.

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.

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++.
