A very deep and comprehensive course for learning some of the core fundamentals of Machine Learning. Can get a bit frustrating at times because of numerous assignments :P but a fun thing overall :)
Hats off to the team who put the course together! Prof Guestrin is a great teacher. The course gave me in-depth knowledge regarding classification and the math and intuition behind it. It was fun!

Personally I could use a little more on the math behind the algorithms (e.g. Adaboost, why does it work?).
Also, would be great to add SVM in next iterations of this class.

The way Carlos Guestrin explains things is exquisite. if basics is what is very important to you, and can learn code implementation and libraries from other sources, this is the go to course

I enjoyed this course a lot. The case study approach and the optional videos are full of intuitions and I love the way instructors put across the concepts very clearly ... Thank you so much
By Jenny H•
All courses in this series are organized and taught in an extremely efficient manner. I have learned so much out of them and they have helped me with my current job and my next job search!

Very thorough and engaging. Optional material allowed the more curious to learn a great deal about the topics. Simple, hands-on approach to classification algorithms. Highly recommended!

This class was very interesting. I learned a lot. I really enjoyed the way the instructor presented the information. The programming assignments were challenging learning opportunities.

A very good course, with effective intuitive explanations of what the algorithms are supposed to achieve and how. The exercises in Python help understand the topic and fix it in memory.
By Thomas E•
A bit easy to get through the exercises bur otherwise a very enlightening and inspiring course. - This is btw a positive review if anybody should be in doubt after taking this course :)

Best Machine Learning classification course by far....
each aspect is explained in detail..but forum responses can be improved..
Great course for machine Learning beginners... loved it.
By Krisda L•
Great course. I learned a lot about Classification theories as well as practical issues. The assignments are very informative providing complimentary understanding to the lectures.
By Michele P•
The course starts slow, but it gets more interesting from week 2. The assignments are more challenging than in Regression, but I have really enjoyed it. I highly recommend it!
By Dave M•
Good Class. Program assignment have a bit too much hand holding, which made them easier and less useful than they might have been if they were allowed to be more challenging.
By Dhritiman S•
These courses have been a perfect mix of theory and practice. Looking forward to the final two courses in the specialization getting released at some point in the future :)

Excellent overview of the most commonly used Classification techniques, providing the wireframe for us to write our own algorithms from scratch. Really enjoyed this one.
By Kuntal G•
Great course with detail explanation ,hands-on lab along with some advance topic. Really a great course for anyone interested in the field of real world machine learning
By Shazia B•
one of the best experience about this course i gained I learned a lot about machine learning classification further machine learning regression thanks a lot Coursera :)
By Fakrudeen A A•
Excellent course - teaches linear, logistic regression and decision trees. It also teaches the most important concept of precision-recall. Overall highly recommended.
By Ji H K•
This is my continuous course from regression. Even now I am using Classification for Business Field, it's very useful to understand basic logic with advanced level.
By Cenk B•
It is technically and mathematically detailed and well-organized course and the assignments are also make me understand better about the algorithms and use details
By Marcus V M d S•
Another great course from this specialization. Tremendous effort in making the notebooks and assignments. I just think there could be recommended readings also.
By ZHE C•
effective teaching and practice about decision tree, boosting, and logistic regression. Could have a little more practice on gradient boosted tree/random forest
By Niyas M•
Amazing course! Packed with insights, reasoning and Carlos's humor and wit. Highly recommended for novices (along with the Machine Learning Foundations course).
By Leon A•
Course material selection, pace and presentation are all well thought out. This sequence of courses in the Machine Learning specialization is truly exceptional.
its been 3 weeks I started this course it was so nice and awesome. the lectures explaination and the ppt all were well crafted and easy to pick and understand.
By Leonardo T L•
Great course about general classification approaches and techniques. The pace of the classes is great. One more time the professors surpassed my expectations!
