Excellent. Thank you so much Andrew Ng. you made machine learning look simple by touching all complicated math and at the same time stopped at the right point before we get scared and run away!!!

This course gave me a real startup about machine learning. In the assignments, the student fills the blank parts of the real world problems. I am happy to jump in to Coursera by this course. I am sure that the course material will be a reference for future works.

Great course delineating all the fundamental principles. Some parts of it maybe a bit too easy for people with decent linear algebra knowledge but definitely a comprehensive and worthwhile introduction in the exciting topic of Machine Learning. I'm definitely motivated to learn more !

Fantastic course, at some points the math is quite complicated (Neural Networks I'm looking at you), but overall teaches the concepts extremely well, the applications in real life industry, and common mistakes not to make in approaching problems. Sparked my passion towards solving business problems with Machine Learning and algorithms.
