Comment :
The lecture content isn't difficult. The main part of this course is working in a medium-sized team (7-8 people) to write design documents and create a piece of software based on your document. We had to create a UNIX shell in Python, for example. Success will vary based on your team. Make sure you understand the assignment fully (i.e. verify with your professor you're doing it right); most groups failed the first component of the assignment as they were unclear as to what a shell does.
