Sheri dropped this course, spending 4 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
Professor Oded Lipschitz's agenda is to promote his book "The Fall and Rise of Jerusalem." I rated his class very hard for the following reasons. Many of his dates on Judean history are ambiguous. On quizzes you have to guess at the dates because the Professor provides more than one set of dates in his lectures. His theories are not main stream archaeology. Don't waste your time. There are much better courses available than this one.

No doubt to the academics here. However, understanding the Prof english is difficult owing to his accent. The first quiz dosen't conform to other available timelines. I'll continue the course but, will not spend any time on frivolous quizzes!

This is a fabulous course. Professor Lipschits is incredibly knowledgeable and I felt privileged to listen to him work through the problems discussed.

Dawn completed this course, spending 8 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be hard.
The course format includes a peer reviewed final assignment. What a waste of time for so many students. They put in many hours of study each week for nearly two months just to fail the class based on the peer reviewed assignment. I was one of the 'lucky' ones, whose achieved grade dropped from 100 to 91.7. I passed. It looks like coursera dropped the class. Wouldn't recommend it anyway.

This course solely directed to the promotion of the book. The author tries to defend his points in any way possible, yet his statements are full of historical inaccuracies and falsified historical data.

The worst MOOC course I have ever taken.
