The course is just fantastic! I had no idea math could be so much fun. And it has really helped me think differently even in other subjects. My approach to problems in other subjects has also changed and I can derive solutions 5 times quicker than before. It is a must have certificate!
I went into the course with some doubts whether it will be nice or not because I was looking to prepare for national level entrance exams. To my surprise, it was not only helpful for competitive exams but gave me a very good understanding of math that I can use in my higher studies also. It was a very nice experience for me.

I have newfound interest in mathematics after doing the course. I never knew math could be so deep and not just boring problems and theorems. Even though it was taken by an American professor, there were a lot of concepts that I could relate with my school syllabus and it helped me pass my exams.
