I recommend this course for someone who is interested in learning of basics of population genetics and evolutionary processes. Prof. Noor is a very good teacher and I like his explanation of concepts.
This course help me a lot. I am very much grateful from coursera and specially Duke university for providing me this great opportunity. It's help me a lot for creating my CB. Thanking you Coursera.

The course is a lot more time consuming than I expected. If you're considering to take this up, make sure you're not on a tight schedule to completing it.
Course content is pretty interesting as the Prof does a great job in explaining the concepts clearly and using real-life case studies for you to see why the concepts are the way they are. However,
Quizzes are extremely difficult to pass. Questions are mostly application types or scenario-based so you need to have a very strong grasp and deep understanding of the lecture material. There were barely any "straightforward" questions. If you fail the quiz, you have to wait 8h to access it again and that really slows down your course progress significantly. The next time you re-do the quiz, you may be getting a different set of questions as well. Most of the time, I have to take 2 - 3 tries to pass the quizzes.
There's a lot of Math involved in the course so FYI for those who don't like to deal with equations. 60-70% of the content is geared towards genetics topics.
The content of the class is very nice. It gives a nice overview on genetics, and it was made accessible to many of us. Also, Mohamed Noor is very enthusiastic, and provides a lot of nice examples to illustrate the course. However, I think some parts of the class were a little bit dizorganized. For instance, I was sometimes confused by the vocabulary or the variable notations which are not always clear.

Boring and the quizzes are extremely hard.

You have to be a mathematician major to understand anything passed the second week. I dropped. This super fast talking guy seems to enjoy hearing himself talk. Maybe I am simple minded, but this course made me proud of that. His passion gets in the way of his ability to actually teach.
The only thing I learned is that if you have to retake his exams, the actual answers change meanings.
Also, according to his lessons, I am green colorblind. That is ridiculous. Emerald is my favorite gemstone.
Also, just because a woman is attractive according to him, doesn't mean that she is the only type of woman worthy of a husband. I think he talks before he thinks.
