Most of the lessons are mathematical formulae in which, in my opinion, I need more real case study/practice to make myself clearly understand on how do those formulae perform.
Prof. Zhai's textbook is well-worth the added investment. His Coursera lectures helped me to "read between the lines."
My favorite course and my favorite instructor. Highly informative. I wish i want to be a real student of the instructor.
very theoretical. very insightful too. finally got a glimpse how the features that I took for granted took shape ... thanks to the instructor, I love the textbook as well ~
