About the Course

If there is a shortcut to becoming a Data Scientist, then learning to think and work like a successful Data Scientist is it. Most of the established data scientists follow a similar methodology for solving Data Science problems. In this course you will learn and then apply this methodology that can be used to tackle any Data Science scenario. The purpose of this course is to share a methodology that can be used within data science, to ensure that the data used in problem solving is relevant and properly manipulated to address the question at hand. Accordingly, in this course, you will learn: - The major steps involved in practicing data science - Forming a business/research problem, collecting, preparing & analyzing data, building a model, deploying a model and understanding the importance of feedback - Apply the 6 stages of the CRISP-DM methodology, the most popular methodology for Data Science and Data Mining problems - How data scientists think! To apply the methodology, you will work on a real-world inspired scenario and work with Jupyter Notebooks using Python to develop hands-on experience....

This is a proper course which will make you to understand each and every stage of Data science methodology. Lectures are well enough to make you think as a data scientist. Thank you fr this course :)

Very interesting course. It shed a light on what the structured approach really is. It's worth to pause for a moment with every step of the methodology and think how to apply it in real life. Thanks!

Important overview to the systematic methodology of data science that can easily be overlooked. Interesting case study provided, along with another example in the assignments, showing that this methodology can be applied to all types of problems and domains.

Good walkthrough of one methodology for data science research. Lightly covered each of the steps involved with both a case study (a real-life hospital readmissions scenario) and a hands-on practice one (analyzing recipes to determine what cuisine they are).

I really like this course! I would like to know more about techniques a model statistics to understand more the processes in Analytic approach, data preparation and modeling and apply correctly in a specific situation in a data science project. Thanks!

Even though I used to work with data, I found the data science methodology a must course for a future data scientist. I like how each stage of data science workflow is summarized to a wheel where each stage communicates with others in an efficient way.

Great content and framework. I enjoyed the explanation of how to follow the framework and how to carry out each step, along with learning what actions to take in each one. The only improvement I would suggest is better graphics and a better narrator.

The first of the three courses that felt coherent and professionally produced. The material was nicely presented and thorough, although occasionally repetitive. Having a single narrator and a clear narrative made for a good learning experience.

I loved doing the peer graded assignment but i thought it would have been better to put the course a little later as for newbies they tend to loose interest for the simple fact that the cant understand the codes at times put up in the notebooks

The course is good and the content but I, as non native english speaker, would have preferred a clearer Case Study and avoiding questions in the Qualification Tests around it, as many term were not clear to me and some issues were quite subtle.

Less than a minute after summiting my Final assignment it came back with peer review that was disappointing. I describe every data science methodology stage and the feedback for that section was that I describe some of the stages but no all.

Need to repeat some of the videos. Also I have to find different case study since at first you can't really digest some of the case study. But after tried different sources of case study, I managed to grasp what's the author trying to tell.

Gostei muito, achei muito bom pra introduzir conceitos básicos e ir se ambientando ao pensamento de data scientist, mas um problema foi não ser mais explorado alguns conceitos e tecnologias. Acredito que o curso poderia ser mais longo.

I think this course is quite brief, some of the terminologies are not well explained. But overall, this gives some insight into data science and is a pretty good introductory course. I hope this course can have more detailed knowledge.

The case study in the video was pretty complex to understand. Thankfully the case study taken in lab ( japanese dishes) was very simple and easy to understand. Overall a good course to understand the methodology used in data science.

Slides needs to improved , text spoken should be presented in text form in Video as well. Over coverage is comprehensive very informative , for learning purposes text should be presented. over exercises and tests are very high quality

I think this course need more resource to teaching a students, It's so difficult to understanding but I received a lot of knowledge from searching a resource, However if it possible to attached more resource that/s be great. thank you

I believe this course is key to have an overall understanding of the Data Science Methodology, however found that it was a bit un-organized and some stages werent fully clear, so had to look for additional information in other sites.

This is a good course - I would have given 5 stars for the course if there was a hands-on lab to build a Supervised Regression model with some data sets and introduced the learner to normalization and fundamentals of statistics.

Doing it for the IBM data science certificate, definitely liked this course more, as what is taught is linked in an excellent way with the interactive Notebooks, letting you experiment with the code to learn their inner workings.

Great walk-through of the general steps of a data science life cycle! My only complaint is that the materials often spoke of more than one step of the ten in a video, making it easy to confuse what things belong to each step.

The instructor's speaking pace was quite fast so had some difficulty understanding the lecture because of that. The case studies should be kept simple. Congestive heart failure case study was quite difficult to understand.

Well explained and concise. The test questions were at times hard to understand and the answers to some were in the following videos. The practice questions should be related to the video just watched not the next one.

Capstone project is a bit limited on 3 topics to choose from.

Why not more creative or even let the user come up with his own problem !!

Still you do learn a goo methodology to handle a problem with datascience approach

This course through the explanatory videos of each stage of Data Science Methodology and a case study provides you with the mindset a data scientist needs against real-world problems. Would definitely recommend it.

Good overview of the process overall. Lecture style, not a project based course. Some of the videos don't always completely convey the information as expected in the quizzes, but still overall good information.

The course is an expository one that has helped me understand some other vital areas of data science. The effort I have put into the course is not wasted at all. I am a changed man when it comes to data science.
