I am going through Section 13:JavaFX right now. To be honest, don't fall for the good reviews. This course is not so good as I have expected. Tim just fills up every lecture with redundant mumbo-jumbo of 15-20 minutes which could've been explained in less than 5 minutes. Some of his lectures are pretty good though, but as far as I have seen, most of his lectures aren't that great. He is hardly to the point and concise. He will talk about the whole process without ever feeling the necessity of explaining why should we do the things he does. The exercises he gives to the students lack proper descriptions. You will hardly be able to complete a whole exercise by yourself. There is just not enough information. Based on what I've experienced so far, I would recommend new Java learners to follow other courses, this course is such a waste of time. And the instructor? Hah! Let's put that aside for now.
Please tell us what's wrong with the comment. Thanks.
For me the exercises are not very clear.
@jack-4 really ?
@jack-4 I agree they are not clear and some of them are too complex. I got 18 % into the course and it started to get difficult and vague when I got to control flow section 5. Others that got beyond me were saying the collections section and the OOP section were difficult as well. Now I'm currently looking to see what other courses i can take. For the money it's a good option but I don't think it's as beginner friendly as the instructor claims it to be. I understand the syntax but the logic in order to solve the challenges is not being taught/reinforced and/ or the challenge instructions are hard to follow.
@jack-4 I just reached collections still didn't started it, but I gotta say the exercises are really vague sometimes, in inner and abstract classes and generics section I struggled a lot to comprehend what we were supposed to do, interfaces was just a mess, and generics was also hard, he teached us the purpose for generics but then he gives us a challenge that is so much more complex than what he previously showed.
Maybe in a way that's how we can learn much more than what is taught by ourselves but I'm inclined to think it's just that the course is already 70+hours and they didn't want to extend it further. They are also remastering the course.
before get the lecture it might be also helpful to check the reviews with 1 star. I did not and i regret. I understand and agree on most of the bad review. I will not say much, though.
@jack-4 Is that so?
many concepts to learn, good :3
