I started this course without any knowledge on Data Analysis with Python, and by the end of the course I was able to understand the basics of Data Analysis, usage of different libraries and functions.
perfect for beginner level. all the concepts with code and parameter wise have been explained excellently. overall best course in making anyone eager to learn from basics to handle advances with ease.

Worst course in the IBM Data Analyst Professional Certificate. Very badly explained.
By Sahar A•
it was too fast and I didn't understand a lot of things
By Jen E•
So many problems with the lessons and the final project.
By Rasmi D•
very high level... topics not covered in depth
By Q B M•
some commands are not fully explained.
I can't believe this course has an average of 4.5 stars. I think they're fake reviews.
They state that no previous knowledge is needed and yet the topics are complex and not explained during the course. They give you information without any introduction on them, giving for granted that you know that information.
There's a lab to exercise that is full of bugs.
If you want to learn Data Analysis with Python and you don't have any previous knowledge of Python, Statistics and Econometrics, stay away from this course.
Probably if you have a firm knowledge of the above subjects it can be useful.
I think people rated it with high score, because it's easy to get the certificate, not because is useful in terms of learning the subject.

Definitely NOT for beginners. No proper explanation of basic concepts. The instructor assumes that all students knows everything and they just explaining python formulas without giving basic concepts on data analysis or statistics. If one has to complete this course only for the sake of certification, one must get the basics right with free online materials and then only can enroll for this so called 'BEGINNER' course to get certificate. I am cancelling my subscription and can learn on my own with free and better online materials

The submission of the final assignment of this course is very poorly designed and explained, it wasted over 1 hour of my time. Furthermore, completion of the course CANNOT be linked to reviewing other people coursework and course completion delayed for over 1 month, because you allow to choose this course as part of my company required training that must be completed by a certain deadline. I completed the course today, but it will not record as completed until AFTER the deadline.
This is unacceptable in a professional world.

Once again, the course forces you to use IBM Cloud, a service which on its free version is completely unreliable.
If you want to learn python, I suggest any other resource on the internet, in which you will spend your time learning to code, instead of dealing with the problems of using IBM Watson Studio. Or if you're looking to validate your knowledge, I also suggest looking for any other course, and not IBM's.

0 effort put. could not even bother to get someone to talk to a screen. lessons were robotic, i might as well have just read a book on this and could probably understand better. disappointing.

Longest course and the most boring one. The quizes have some problem even the correct ans are corrected and incorrect . The questions seem to change change their mind on the answers!!!

This course isn´t offering value, every automata can follow this course and pass it. I´m looking courses which can help me improve my professional skills.
By Louise B•
Typos and mistakes in the quizz, phrasing of questions is misleading. Meant for beginners but with all mistakes hard to learn the right way.
By Dennis B•
Honestly, the labs were impossible to load and everyone is asking for help on the forums whilst staff copy/pastes the same useless answers.
By Ali A•
Too shallow course material. It just call libraries and functions without describing why.
By CHAYAN S R•
This course is not descriptive in nature and just has been surfaced on the topics.
By Jianfei Z•
No systematic teaching. Only pick a few pebbles and assume you can build a palace.
Shambolically organised, an overt plug for IBM's barely functional cloud systems
By Steve L K A•
Hardly challenging. No programming practice and all MCQs.. unstimulating.

Salta dei pezzi. Spiega troppo veloce e non ti lascia vedere le slide

The course is interesting, but those who check are inattentive

Worst mooc I ever taken, they just advertise about IBM
By Jinling C•
so confused and several errors , pls correct them
By Kenneth H•
I would like to give it a 0 but it won't let me

No support from moderators, plenty of typos.
