by Sara partially completed this course, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be hard.
The course was easy at the beginning, but then the assignments became a bit more complex. You definitely need a programming background to do get the answers (it would take forever to perform the calculation by hand) and that is not stated at first, hence the 3 stars.
