Coursera - CS 101 - Completed

More than a month back, I so enthusiastically reported my endeavour to work on Udacity's CS101 and CS 253.

And the fact of the matter is that I could not move beyond the second unit of both the courses. Its not that they were hard on me or anything, but the scheme of things happened in a way, that just wandered off.

By now, you would have been sick of reading this wandering habit of mine and no one is more so, than myself itself.

But, I have not yet given up and thats why keep coming back to this blog of mine to record even a small progress.

All this while I had registered for Coursera's CS101 of Stanford too, being taught by Nick Parlante.

The course was to finish on 5th June 2012.

I started working on it on 29th of May 2012 and finished it in less than 24 hours on 30th of May 2012.

The course was really interesting with Nick touching on all the basic aspects of Computer Science , including a bit on hardware too.

It was I felt a bit easier than Udacity's CS101.

But then I completed it at least.

I got all the questions of all the exercises right with 100% score in all of them but was heavily penalised for late submission and I guess In would get only 67%-68% score out of 100 and would not get the certificate of accomplishment.

Certificate of accomplishment would be awarded to only those who get 80% effective course.

Had I known about it earlier then definitely I would have started much earlier.

It seems there is not a certificate of completion also for completing the course succesfully.
