I understand why most of the students are furious about, but content wise, it one of those extremely helpful and important courses in Coursera. Really loved it!
Laurence cares deeply about the students. Not only about what they learn, but that they actually enjoy and learn it. What a fantastic teacher.

This course is really interesting during the start, because there are a lot of hands-on for us to play around with the code. It shows the capability of TensorFlow as a Machine Learning framework which can also be used for data preprocessing before the model training.
However, the Assignments were very poorly designed in my opinion. I relied heavily on the discussion forums to pass the Assignments. It seems like a bug to me when you need to navigate through the Jupyter workspace to find the Week 5 notebook, then modify the codes from there and submit it to pass the Week 4 assignment.

Course content deserves 5 starts. Really nice and very useful tutorial. But assignments are not as good as the content. There are very less explanation , many mistakes ( specially at the last assignment, because of typo, you may submit several times) , no expected outcome to control before submitting (evaluation time of third assignment took around 30 minutes for me).

The content of weeks 1 to 3 is very useful and the videos are clear. However the content of week 4 goes way to fast, and the last exercice is way more difficult to do, and to validate. The number of questions in the forum on that matter illustrates that something could be improve. Though, thanks for the course!

too much informations but for the most part it's made for the researchers, dealing with so many complicated methods and functions in tensorflow, which was helpful but the codes were too much and not described indepth, maybe you can improve the way you showcase the codes slowly and in different senarios.

A lot of information was crammed in videos of very short duration. The course could have been more comprehensive. Also, a detailed explanation of errors on making wrong submissions would be very helpful.

Currently the assignments are broken and it takes a lot of effort to successfully complete them because of that. Hopefully they fix it in the future.

Dataset creation task was more complex for me then all previous before.
By Shobhit G•
Last Assignment does not have proper logs and instructions.
Very poor course experience due to assignment grader!!
By Mark P•
Assignments were very poor - especially week 4.
By Jinxiang R•
week 2 and week 4 is quite hard to follow
By Sanket G•
The final assignment is just annoying
By Triantafyllos S•
Fix the Week 4 Assignment please.

That last week was awful.

While this is meant to be a "get your feet wet" specialization that has you use basic TensorFlow APIs to do things. this particular course is below the bar even for that. Exercises consists of cut-n-pasting large swats of code and asking meaningless questions about spelling of API symbols (quick, which one is it: word_order_isn't_learning, word_isn't_order_learning, learning_word_order_isn't, or order_isn't_learning_word?). The course ends with a seriously frustrating cut-n-paste exercise where you get tested on important topics like finding the right sentence to copy from a wiki.
First three weeks were pretty interesting, especially pipelines and performance. However the examples and tasks were a little bit non-realistic. But Week 4 exercise was terrible. It is almost impossible to complete it using just grader's output. Running its copy in a separate colab's notebook is a must to be able to track errors, a lot of which are basically typos in names. The task description should have mentioned this much more explicitelly.

That makes me sad to give such a bad rating, because I'm a big fan of Andrew Ng and DeepLearning.ai courses, but this one is really not at standart.
The lectures are confusing, we don't understand what's the goal of all that until week3.
The assignments can be a pain to pass, not because your code is wrong, but because you added a newline or modify a bit the cell.
And overall the topic is not very interesting, in an industry setting not useful.
By Peer B•
Normally the deeplearning.ai courses are really well done. This course unfortunately was an exception. The material was presented nicely, but the fourth week's programing exercise was a disaster. There was no way to complete it unless you reviewed several of the discussion forums to learn how to resolve the inherent bugs in the code and how to use the hidden week 5 notebook.

homework assignments are not in the correct locations and assignments require significant digging to be able to submit and receive the appropriate grade. Please fix the issues so new students do not waste significant time. Moderators reading the discussion forums frequently would help.

The 4th week is terrible. The assignment was confusing and the lecture didn't prepare me to do it at all.
By Mohannad B•
It is a great course untell you watch the last week. Videos are very short and there is no easy way to debug the assignment. Wich was better.
By Andy C•
the week 4 exercise is so frustrating

Worst Course Ever !
