OD Course, they don't let you know which question you got wrong, you can't go back and review the quiz once you done it. It's hard to know the area you need to review and study for. Just my 1.2 cents worth.

Oh yeah, I see that now. At least I can track my quiz percentage.

I'm liking the OD course a lot, but feel like it would be hard for someone without any experience. They seem to sometimes introduce new material in the exercise answer, with no real explanation. I don't mind, but I feel like this would be confusing to others.

That was one of several reasons I didn't continue with OD courses and just went back to Study.com.

Exactly, but guess for a free course with a $9.00 proctored, you get what you pay for. I think it's more growing pains for a new startup. Maybe they'll listen to the complaints on here and adjust .

3 month wait to retake.

I am an English/social science high school teacher and I have been taking as many math and computer science courses as is possible to extend my knowledge.  It took me two tries to pass C++ programming at Straighterline and it will, apparently, take me at least two tries at onlinedegree.com for python.  I just have to say that I found the course to be difficult, informative and legitimate.  Hats off to onlinedegree.com for creating free courses that are pretty good.

How did the final compare to the quizzes? I'm trying to gauge how much more I should review. I got between 80% and 100% on almost all the quizzes, with a few being 66%, so I should be pretty good, but this just covered so much material, I'm a little nervous that It will be a really hard final.

OD's course is easier than SL C++, right?

Three months is a while!

I'm working on the OD python course as well... its not the best resource for learning python, but the videos are ok. The quizzes sometimes ask questions about material they didn't touch on, which makes it more difficult and some video tutorials contradict each other since they patch together the program from different sources. I may come back to the course after learning python elsewhere. So far, quiz scores are around an 80% with exams, because they didn't teach some of the info they quiz you on.

Since OD is free, its hard to complain. What I use to learn coding:

coursera (its helpful to sign up to get feedback and ask questions about the practice exercises)
commonlounge - small annual fee, lots of exercises and a full list of cs/tech topics to study, they have a mentor feedback option
W3resource/W3schools - free, teaches all the coding languages, lots of practice exercises and solutions available
udemy - some courses include lots of exercises, you have to search
books - sometimes just a good intro book is more than all you need
youtube - great tutorials and examples
skillshare - they also have a number of coding tutorials, not many exercises though

I've been coding on and off for 20 years. Not expert level but pretty decent at C#, C and Python and I'm on section 8 of the Intro to Python course. The quizzes are very ambiguous. I think I got a 65% on one of them and so many of the questions I could justify multiple answers to. The material and coding examples are trivial for me but the quizzes are just really poorly put together. I'm going to stick it out but probably would advice people to take a different course if you're a beginner.
