    Fine course

    Comments about oreilly Python Data Structures:

    I always take exception with people that complain about getting something different than what they thought they were buying. Did they not read the description? this is not a generic data structures course. It's a video series about data structures provided by the python language, and it does a very good job at covering that.

    Will not teach you how to build your own data structures

    Comments about oreilly Python Data Structures:

    I used this product to expand my python skills and possibly a promotion or better job. I was hoping that the course would teach me how to use internal and implement Python data structures. Instead, this book uses prebuilt data structures.

    The most notable caveat of the use of prebuilt data structures is that this course will not help you prepare for a job interview.

    If you are currently working with Python and you want to expand your Python skills, then you may be happy with this course. I am not.
