I had this course in my college .But i was not getting anything in college .This course helped me a lot thnku so much Apple

Huge help

These course videos are the only reason I'm doing so well in my algorithms class this semester!

Bad video quality

I usually treat these video like actual course, so I take note and do exercises after finishing a lecture. However, due to the extremely low quality of the video it's quite difficult take some good notes. I need to enlarge and shrink the screen to see what the professor wrote. Also I only enjoyed the sorting algorithms but not too concern about the derivation (since that's all i need to digest in order to implement certain methods in my code anyway). The derivation part is just way too tedious. In fact sometime I wasn't sure if the professor knows what he's talking about.
