Course Review (1)
They call this the 'QuintEssential' Harvard course and indeed it was above and beyond any class I have ever taken in my academic career. For a first year course it was very demanding and time consuming, but exciting, especially taking it along side the on-campus students. I have heard that the next run of CS50x will be stretched to a year in length, and will begin Jan. 2014. Though the learning curve was steep, I came out of it with an entire new skill set and perspective. I also found a love of Harvard and am now a formal student.
