Used to be absolute shit in coding, couldn't solve basic problems on most
Tried to get better by spending days and months reading code on geeks for geeks
But never felt confident in my skills and most of the time it felt like mugging.
Then I finally stumbled upon this course via youtube video.
Can you learn data structure without spending 12k rupees:
Yes, but it will very
difficult (It was for me at least)
- The course is in hinglish (mostly Hindi) and the teachers does not
try to sound elite by trying to force English on you.
Tumhari Mother Tongue agar Hindi ha toh chahe tumahri English kitni
bhi achi kyun na ho, Hindi se jitna tum connect karoge utna English
se nhi hoga.
- No video is more than 25 minutes and most of them are in 10-15 min
range so they don’t bore you with extremely lengthy videos
- The Course covers all the data structure comprehensively. They
don’t skip on anything.
- They scale the difficulty of problems slowly and teaches the
syntax/concepts in a problem solving fashion which I could not
really find anywhere else.
This Slowly increasing the difficulty is what I find best thing in
- Problem solving approach, you will solve a ton of problem which
will get you in the habit of coding.
- Highly qualified. There is no problem I faced they can’t solve.
Most of them they already anticipated.
- Also they don’t deliver lectures in a monotonous way like some of
the English courses I had taken so you won’t get bored if you are
interested in the topic.
In Lecture Question and Quizzes:
These are comparatively easy since you kind of know how to approach
question from lecture videos.
This is where I think you will actually grow as a coder, these are tough
and you will need to apply everything from all the previous lectures
Codezen & CodeStudio:
They have a huge collection of problems on the platform called
It’s basically like any other competitive programming website so you
will not run out problems to solve.
Hint Videos: For most of the tough questions hint
videos are available which explains how to approach a question but
does not provide the actual code.
90% of the times when you get struck this will be sufficient to
- Raising doubts, TA: There is a button “Raise
Doubt” on each of the video/questions. So when you get struck you
can raise a doubt using this explain your doubt in a text box and
they will get back to you.
Note: TA stands for Teaching assistants and they are different
from the Teachers themselves.
They usually get back to you within hours of raising doubt(6PM-10PM)
and you can get on a call with them if Required.
Was this course worth it: Absolutely, to the very last penny.
Recommendation if you are taking the course:
- Always give at-least 30-40 minutes to the question before you ask for help.
Figuring out the solution yourself is what will make you better.
But obviously there comes a point where trying to find the solution yourself
is outweighed by the time you waste on it, so don’t waste hours and hours on
a single question.
- Stay Regular, always try to complete the lecture in the same week they are
posted. If you get too behind it will get very difficult and your motivation
may die out. The assignments have deadlines after which you will not get the
full score. If you don’t score high enough you may not get the certificate
of completion. Also if you are too slow you might not be able to complete
all the lectures before they revoke access.
