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.

Model Development and Model Evaluation & Refinement Concepts are not explained properly neither in Videos nor in Lab!!Really disappointing :(
By Tarun S•
Concepts of the algorithms are unclear. In the notebooks as well, it is not in a flow. Very confusingg for a beginner to learn from this.

more hands on, project based/game based learning. Mindlessly watching videos and regurgitating code in the labs can not be the only way.
By Santanu B•
Not a great course. Sometimes it is too fast and the explanations are very short. More hands on exercises would have been more helpful.
By Rajesh W•
There are plenty of mistakes in the videos and in the lab session as well. Hope you guys can clear out those.

This was a very challenging course. Some concepts were difficult to grasp and required additional research

Frustrating when the peer reviewer doesn't actually understand Python and deducts marks for correct code.

Leaned some, but not a whole lot of real-world application, I recommend people take Python courses more
By Ashwin D•
Not enough hands on problems, including variety and volume. Expected more from an IBM program.

Don't spend your money on IBM Data Science Cert. Course labs are full of bugs and not working.
By Edwin S J•
Suddenly introduced complex codes and statistical functions. Videos were way too fast.
By Somak D•
moderators do not respond to questions raised in forum. leading to incomplete learning

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.
By Pradeep Y•
it is very easy courses
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.
By Prem K G•
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.
