如果要评价这门课，最恰当的应该是这门课主讲Scott在课程结束时的一句话：“It is difficult but fun. In fact, things that are worthwhile often are difficult."
这门课还有一些细节让人觉得很心动，这像极了某些经典游戏里的体验。比如每次的homework之前都会有一些很touching的句子，而且跟当周的课程内容很贴切。像第一周是关于如何为Cookie Clicker这个游戏选择最佳策略的，那周homework前的句子就是："I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." E. B. White - author of Charlotte's Web
