I did a Data Structures & Algorithms course during my undergrad so I thought that this would be somewhat challenging, it is not! I got through the first 2 modules within an hour or so. It felt like an oversimplified version of what I had learned during my undergraduate education.

There are no programming assignments to reinforce your knowledge or what you have learned, only quizzes comprised of 3 to 4 questions.

Honestly, this course could be done a lot better and I expected more from Microsoft. There are more challenging algorithms courses on edX and possibly Coursera. IITBombayX has a pretty challenging Algorithms Course and UCSanDiegoX (an amazing school) has a very challenging Algorithms specialization on both platforms (edX and Coursera).
