I took their previous session (in October '14) and I highly recommend it.
I really liked Sedgwick's way of explaining both the concepts and the thought process.
It's more visualization and programming oriented, rather than CS/math oriented. Check out some of their book material to get an idea of the course content.
You don't require a CS degree or advanced math to take it. Quite the opposite, in fact; the material is designed to be approachable to those who haven't taken CS/math.

For some reason my posts in that thread seem too discouraging. I think it's not too difficult to complete this course with a full time job if that job and your chores give you a healthy lifestyle.
These days you get two weeks to complete the assignment without penalty and almost about a month to complete it with little penalty. That is really a cool thing. To anybody considering to take up this course, I'd say, go for it.
