This is a very useful course even if you are very good in English . This course helps in understanding the type of sentences, proper usage of commas and perfect ways of writing attractive paragraphs.

I am very satisfied with this course. It really helped me to improve my writing skills, and I am feeling more confident than I used to be.\n\nAfter this course, I am planning to take up the next one.

This course is helpful and I have learned quite a bit about punctuation and sentence structures.
However, while things like tense are important, to be able to differentiate 12 tenses contributes relatively little to typical academic writing. Rather, I have had trouble with seemingly simple questions such as when to use past tense and when to use present tense in a literature review. But these aspects are probably the most useful when it comes to pracital writing. It would be helpful if these issues are addressed.
Also, the use of articles is a common weakness for a lot of students (to "the" or not to "the"). It is helpful to include this component too.

I would have liked some more depth in the course. While the course name says "punctuation", it deals only with commas and to a small extent, with semicolons. The assignments and practice exercises need to be tougher. Also, given that this course is taken by students from all over the globe, it should mention that the "serial comma" is not mandatory in all writing styles.

A solid course for those who require a refresher on certain grammar rules. But, in my opinion, the course should go deeper in the different parts of the English grammar. For example, what are gerunds or infinitives? Still a good course though! I really enjoyed the teacher, as well.

Although it should be simple enough, i found it hard to understand the material and sometimes, the videos would end without finishing the content.

Good Course for examining some English Grammar closely
The course breaks down some aspects of English grammar and punctuation very nicely and has relevant practice exercises.
I wish the course covered a slightly wider variety of topics or went into slightly more depth of explanation. The title "grammar and punctuation" is misleading in that only a few topics are covered. However, I believe someone learning English or reviewing academic writing would definitely benefit from going through this course. I am a native speaker, and I certainly learned a few things. :)
Thank you Professor, TA's and Coursera!

I think this is a good review for someone who has the basic in English grammar; however, if you're an ESL student or English-speaking person (who need to start over in grammar).
Study first before starting this course.
A lot of the feedback in the forum, I found to be poor except when it came from an English-speaking person.
You get a lot of: " OK, Great, etc..", no real feedback.

Nice brush up on some long-lost grammar rules. Could have been a bit more challenging considering it was created by a University of California school.

The level of this course is way more basic than I expected. The reviews left previously did not succeed my expectations. It might be an interesting course for someone that is starting to write in English and wishes to have extra knowledge in a very collateral way.

It was great but I can't continue it because I am from Iran and living there too so I can't pay and enroll next courses :(
It was just like a great starter with no purpose for me.
