Its was great experience in completing the project using all skills that we learned in the course, thanks to coursera and IBM for giving me an opportunity to update my selft and also to test my skills
Very good capstone project. Learnt lot of insights on how to represent data through out this course.\n\nVery good starting point for ""Data Science" field. I would definitely recommend this course.

This course is ok. Not too challenging and not too easy. It definitely needs an update. Things have changed over the last couple of years and it appears that the course developers have not made an update since 2018. WIth a refresh this course will be a 5 star course for sure.

Labs could be improved verifying all the commands work well. Videos could be improved make them more informative as in other Data Science courses part of the Specialization. Many things are left to the labs without sufficient previous explanation.

The challenges presented have been really good however I'd reccomend that the prceding modules be evaluated for the changes that have come in over the years,maybe lay more emphasis on 'what is used more frequently' in a real life situation !!

This course was extremely difficult and it took me the longest. There were errors in the lab so I could not finish any of the labs, but I had asked for help and the response for help was very poor for the lab or for the assignment.

It is good because you get to know many tools to get data and it has very good examples of how a project should look, but i think this is a project that must not be reviewed by other students, so we get useful feedback.

Very challenging. A lot of the things you have to do in the final project are things you must figure out on your own, since they're not explained in any previous lessons.
By Anna K•
A challenging Capstone project with many dimensions. The structure of the previous courses in the certification could have been improved to build up to this project.
By Mohammad Q•
This course is about applying what you learn on a free form project.. but you should use Foursquare API which it might be challenging little bit to deal with..
By Oscar C C•
There are some errors in the instructions labs, in forums is the way you can get help, but it it necessary to modify the code in the examples.
By Kristine M•
The final project is way too over the top for this type of course. I've been asked to do less work in graduate level courses.
By Jianfeng Z•
Good practical lesson. However the learning curve is too steep compare to the other courses in this certificate.
By Apurv G•
Great capstone project. But forced to do the same project. It would be better to get more choices of projects.
By Piotr M•
I didn't like that we had to use Foursquare — I could not come up with anything interesting.
By Siddhant S•
The difficulty could be increased and the scope of topics covered could be wider.
By Mbongeni N M•
The instructor of the capstone saved this specialization for me.
By Ozkan K•
I did not find the project relevant to the rest of the course
By Rosana R•
It is difficult. I will like more support from the teachers.
By Alberto I A•
Broken links in samples and csv data files.
By Ramakrishnan S•
Didnt complete the project, Un enrolling
By Charles J•
some lab codes cannot run smoothly
By Abdul M A•
very vague with the information
By Amey S P•
It is good for beginners.

This review was written after taking the other courses in the IBM Data Science certificate.
The certificate as a whole is well worth it, in my opinion, and I feel like I learned a lot about the different aspects and methods to data science, which makes the way this particular course is written all the more baffling.
I have no idea why, after weeks or even months of learning about all these different data science aspects including machine learning, SQL, and other topics, this finishing course is almost entirely centered around the FourSquare API and being forced to use location data specifically.
This course in particular needs a rethink, especially in the subject matter department. Instructions in the labs are vague, and in some cases, don't even work properly. Code is given without explanation of what it does. Only one person needs to grade your project for you to get the final grade.
By far the worst course of the entire certificate.
