Overall a good curated course to help understand the GCP offerings and high level architecture of how their offerings fit in the current landscape. Easy to follow along as this was fundamental course.
This course is an excellent introductory to Google Cloud Platform for Data Engineers and Machine Learning enthusiasts. The labs are really thorough and give nice hands-on on the various GCP services.

Labs were not useful to get the feel of the platform, overall very poor coverage of such an interesting topic.
By Balkrishna K•
It is very basic and don't have details. New person will find it difficult to understand what is going on
By Marius v E•
Labs were not so great, long provisioning time and high amount of tedious setup repetition
By Aditya N G•
A very basic hands-off course just introducing to some GCP products.
By Roberto F•
There is no practice in deep of GCP tools, tasks are really guided.
By Razvan B•
This is just and introduction to google products and that's it.

Meh, more like a sales pitch rather than actual course content
By Audrius V•
Mostly useless blahblah with only few pieces of information
By Marcelo H G•
Sells too much Google and do not explain important things.
By Praveen P•
Not a great course for learning. Didnt focus on concepts
By Viswajith K N•
you should let the students program.

Not much content
By Sunil A•
Shoddy material, quickly thrown together. Non-paying users cannot access labs. Why even allow them to enroll then ? Does not require Machine Learning to extrapolate a scenario where such a user is going to get frustrated and ask questions: "Where can I find the lab? or Why isn't my button to start the lab working?".

Following every lab, and every test. There is a video where the exact same is done all over again in a video. I do not feel like this immediate repetition helps me in any way, and after having watched one and a half of the lab review videos, I skipped through the rest.

utter waste of time, its just a cheap ad to promote a google cloud platform which no one likes/uses. i thought i would learn something but this course is a complete garbage. didn't expect coursera to provide such a low grade course. highly disappointed.

Basically a Google advertisement disguised as an online course. Labs and quizzes are trivially easy, very little work necessary to complete the course. Will not be proceeding with the rest of the courses in this specialization.

This course is basically just an ad for GCP. While the labs are helpful to get an idea of the capabilities, I don't think I learned anything I could apply in a future career. Perhaps the more advanced courses are more useful.
By Ciprian D•
This course/specialization is seriously insufficient in order to pass the GCP certification. A lot of knowledge from the Architecture course would still be necessary. The disclaimer about work experience does not cover that.
By Mike W•
The notebook based demos are unfortunately pretty useless as labs. All of these courses would be much improved with real labs that require the student to build the system.

I singed up for this suppossed free course and now I got charged 44 euros. I do not want this and I deamand a refund. I'had already cancell all my subscriptions.
By Unreal W•
Too abstract. Don't use acronyms without explaining the acronyms or paste lines of code with little to no explanation. K.I.S.S ( keep it simple stupid)
By Shalahuddin A A•
It like an advertisement for Google Cloud Platform. The lab is too easy, just copy and paste without the need of thinking to solve a problem.
By Mark P F•
Completed Specialization and Coursera says that I should be able to view Specialization but it doesn't exist.

The course was more of like google advertising their cloud APIs, rather than teaching important points.

Need real credit card(Virtual credit card is not allowed) to access to lab environment.
