Great course to develop some understanding and intuition about the basic concepts used in optimization. Last 2 weeks were a bit on a lower level of quality then the rest in my opinion but still great.
Very Well Explained. Good content and great explanation of content. Complex topics are also covered in very easy way. Very Helpful for learning much more complex topics for Machine Learning in future.

Role of discussion forum is very less. Please improve on that to have healthy participation. Otherwise, course content is really good.

first 4 weeks were good. Starting from week 5 course explanation was bad. Was required to watch other videos.

Lecture videos are quite sparse, and the quizzes test things that they don't teach you in the lecture

The material is great and very relevant to anything connected to data science, however, I didn't enjoy this course half as much as the first in the series.
It's way too dense, things appearing on the screen where it's not clear where they're coming from, explanations feel scripted and read out at high speed, frequently unclear.
If you're using screen shots for taking notes (as I do), that's not ideal either because they're writing on a glass pane while they're standing behind it.
I'm working full-time and had to take this course stretched out over a long time. Again, the presentation being so dense doesn't help there either.
All in all it feels like a published first draft of the course, it doesn't seem the instructors are trying to improve the course at all.
