I'm just a beginner for CS or SE classes, and find this course really concise and challenging. It opens a door for me to get deeper into programming language. No wonder it got so high average score.

Very interesting course! Superb teaching and homework assignments. If you are interested in functional programming or in programming languages in general, this should be one of the must take MOOCs

I really enjoyed this course, the way it compared different types of programming languages helped me to understand the similarities that all languages share.

Outstanding course. Actually, it's valuable even for experienced programmers. The ideas presented in course could be used in other - mainstream languages.

I really enjoyed taking this course. It was quite taxing but I loved the way Dan Grossman presented the concepts in a very intuitive and didactic manner.

Great course! HW
Great course! The HWs were more challenging than I expected but Dan's lectures are very clear and the concepts are explained very well.

Wonderful course. Highly recommend for anyone who hasn't made any study of programming languages before, whether you are a student or professional.

The course is actually very useful and well structured. Don't be scared by the use of a programming language (Standard ML) that might seem obscure.

Exceptional experience, learnt a lot! Will recommend whole heartedly to others. I am onto part B now! Excited to see how racket contrasts with ML.

excellent, i couldn`t take it few years ago - due to my bad english, today i really enjoy it.
Many things that seemed difficult for me are not.

Very good instructor, challenging but doable homework for week 3 and 4. Exam is too easy though. I would like the exam to be more difficult.

such a clear introduction to Functional Programing. My fear of 'academic functional style' is totally gone, and really like recursion now.

Covers essential functional idioms, and explores ways of computation different than the usual imperative, object-oriented patterns.
