Absolutely fantastic course. Expect to be highly knowledgeable on the important mathematical theory behind Machine Learning! Loved Dr. Andrew's way of teaching, even though this was all online! Exceptional class and exceptional teacher/man. I'm so thankful to have taken this class. Thank you so much!

This class took me a long time to complete. I did the work as time permitted. Now that I am done, I am very happy. Thank you all so much for the effort put into making this class understandable and accessible. I will continue my pursuits in this field, and I am grateful to have been given such a firm foundation from which to base my efforts.

I thoroughly enjoyed learning Machine Learning from Professor Ng. He took an intimidating topic and simplified to the the point that anyone can learn it. He was always encouraging and reassured his students it is ok to not understand everything right away. The programming exercises were fun and linked the lecture concepts to real work applications. I will highly recommend this course to anyone who is serious about learning Machine Learning. Thank you Professor Ng!

Excellent course, very insightful and with lots of useful information
