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 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.

It serves better as a review project than threading all previous courses than as a real project. Especially that the final report is just ridiculous... No one in real working situation would submit such a report: they'd upset their stakeholders.

It would have been better if the assignment were split on previous courses. IMHO, this course was way longer than the other courses of the specialization

Many errors in the lab and some code were not properly explained. The quality of this module was not as good as the others.
By Karol S•
One of the worst mooc ever, content outdated, lessons not real life, and absolute lack of feedback on final assignment

LABs in this course had quite a lot of bugs which costed me a lot of time and nerves.
By David H•
Massive issues with Labs not working; parts of segments too superficiel explained

Instructor should explain how to make a capstone project and what is
By Fabian S•
External services to be used do not live up to the standards.
I would prefer to have a self-designed project.
By RITIK S•
Need some more guidance on Capstone

The course is actually very very hard, I made it through all the Data Science courses for Proffesional Certificate, however, when I came to this final course, I kind of got lost when working on assignments that would lead me to create a project of the desired outcome. As it's been some time since I took other Data Science courses and tried to complete this one, I came back now, after around a year, to see if anything got fixed as I believe other participants of the course had problems creating their projects as well, yet however, I see that nothing has changed. Tried creating the project again, yet got stuck at the assignment for week 3. Maybe Coursera or IBM Teaching staff should really look into this issue that not only I am experiencing.

I get now (8th of July) a message that I can only begin in August on my assignment although I have finished week 4 succesfully!!!
I find it unacceptable that Coursera tries to let you renew your monthly subscription over and over again.
Could you unlock my assignment week 5 please?
Also Coursera let you use IBM lite subscription for free in the beginning but if you use it a lot, the lite version is not enough. You can upgrade, if you pay...
If you enroll for subcourses, you are charged each time you submit another small part.
the classes itself are good but Coursera is not clear on how much you need to pay in the end. The prices they let you believe seem reasonable but there are hidden extra costs.

Utterly frustrating. Materials / deliverables change regularly so you I've ended up needing to restart twice. Course is poorly curated, basically just leaving you to debug code rather than really teaching you about data science.
Moderators ignore you (or simply don't exist?)
I regret being on this course for such a long time and wasting so much money. There are much better courses out there. This doesn't deserve the IBM brand.
By Haryanto A•
Terrible. I was more than half way through this course and they changed the course and I had to start over. It was already unclear, now the instructions are much less than before. A waste of money.
By Mao T T•
The instructors reset the course without any prior warning whatsoever so I had to redo the entire course despite all the time and effort I put in.
By Ramon B•
worst course content instead of other IBM courses
