It is a great course. As the name suggests it is an advanced course so you will need some time to go through it again and again but its definitely worth it.

First I would like to thank the instructors for this course, it helped me a lot in learning React. But there is something that needs improving. I think the course is too short to cover the concepts it presented. because we are not getting enough examples to fully understand the concepts thrown at us. so maybe make Advanced React 1 and Advanced React 2. My biggest grip is the final assignment, it required us to solve it using Formik, a form validation library that was never mentioned before, and as it appreas it's wildely used. So why not dedicate a video teaching Formik? why waste many videos about the controlled components when in general people use Formik? At least share some links about the libraries required in the finals assignment.

Course has lots of interesting material, but so much of this is overshadowed by continuous streams of various technical and content-related issues, such as...

- Test questions with no right answer

- Blatantly incorrect statements, usually on exams/quizzes

- Lessons presented in the wrong order

- Not enough depth on important topics (for example, the basic React rendering cycle, especially with respect to performance dos and don'ts and tradeoffs)

- Lab code that doesn't work out of the box (bad NPM dependencies, faulty CSS)

- Randomly tossing 3rd party libraries into the lab and requiring the student to learn them on the fly. The portfolio project was more an exercise in Formik/Yup than it was in "Advanced React"

- Insufficient direction for assignment submission, resulting in various students submitting projects in different formats. Some were submitted as .rar files, so I had to download 3rd party software in order to extract them (please just accept .zip files only), some submissions don't even work.

- Grading criteria for peer-reviewing is a little weak. Many submissions have issues or other errors that would prevent them from ever being accepted in a professional setting, but because they pass all of the assignment's generic baked-in criteria, they are "passing"

- Ongoing plagiarism. Many submissions are clearly and obviously plagiarized, and it seems Coursera does very little to prevent this. This calls the entire validity of the course and its value into question, and dilutes the value of the certification. Plagiarized submissions also don't count towards your required 3 peer reviews, so every time you find a plagiarized one, you need to spend time reporting it, and then still do 3 more anyways.

Not necessarily suitable for learners with little knowledge of React/programming, with constant homework covering things that were not in the videos, and those things to be mentioned the first time LATER in the course or another course. What's the point of the homework if it asks for more than you have just learned and you have to figure out by yourself or just look at the solution? It's frustrating. Peer review is also annoying when someone just takes points away without giving a reason and bad enough you still passed but with a slight worse mark on your certification.

The best thing I got from this course is knowing so many React concepts at least superficially so I know what I must study and practice to become a better React developer. The final project forces you to do research on a few libraries that were previously mentioned but I think it's worth it as you get to experience meeting requirements for a React project and iterating a few times over a project, just keep going!

The course is great overall but it is a little inconsistent at times, especially comparing it with other courses from Meta in the Front-end developer series, in some videos I felt like there was too much new information thrown for one video without covering the details, the course seemed to be geared more for getting a 'production ready' developer who can do most things rather than say a university class that is focused on pure deep understanding.

For a personal with no academic background in IT, the lectures' style is quite dry and academic, i.e. a lot of technical terms with a lot of technical terms at a pretty high speed in a 4-5 minute video is quite hard to grasp. Such a teaching style is probably fine for experienced developers but not for people who have just begun their journey as a developer.
