The course is very good and has taught me the all the important concepts required to build a sequence model. The assignments are also very neatly and precisely designed for the real world application.
I was really happy because I could learn deep learning from Andrew Ng.\n\nThe lectures were fantastic and amazing.\n\nI was able to catch really important concepts of sequence models.\n\nThanks a lot!

Good introduction to the concepts. Really poor quality videos and exercises. Very frustrating when working on the assignments.

Good lectures. Programming assignments are useless fill-in-the-blank exercises, you don't really learn much from them.
By Thomas A•
The programming assignments really are like pulling teeth. There's not really enough guidance leading up to them.

The transformer subclass programming exercise is super useless task. Spent hours on this task and learnt nothing.
The course videos and the programming assignments were lacking. And there was no support in the forums.

Spent more time trying to work around a buggy grader than learning the underlying concepts.

Too hard to understand compared to the previous coursed in this specification.
By Hamid A•
Was very difficult. please add more expiation of mathematical equations.
Little unsatisfied with the final part of the specialization.

Lack of Keras training made it often hard to do layer code.
By Tom T•
This course needs more instruction on Keras.

Poor explanation for alot of things
By Milica M•
boring and uninformative

I feel sad.
I have no idea how we're supposed to walk out of these courses with the knowledge of how to build a neural network. The practice exercises are a joke. It's a bunch of functions taken out of context, with "instructions" on how to complete each. I don't understand how to do any of it, and I passed all the quizzes.
This specialization gets good reviews because people love Andrew, and although I'm sure he's a great guy, these courses provide no real practical information on how to build neural networks from scratch. I don't even know where to begin, and at this point I'm just copying solutions from the internet to complete the projects so I can just get my completion certificate.
I only recommend taking this from a theoretical perspective. If you're looking to get started with deep learning from a practical standpoint, look elsewhere. This isn't worth it.

Oversimplifying material, such as not showing any math foundations and proofs, does not lead to an intrinsic understanding of the material as well as fill-the-gap assignments do not enhance comprehension.
I understand that the course is intended for the broad audience but will one be able to implement those Keras and TensorFlow algorithms on a moderately complex problem, which is the ultimate goal of these courses? Highly doubt it because the code is pre-written for students and step-by-step guide is provided. In my opinion, one could go straight to assignments and induct / deduct the answers.

I love Dr. Andrew, I seriously do. He has inspired me in the field of Deep Learning like no one else did. But I detest how this course is made so expensive and in a wrong direction. I subscribed and paid $225 and I still was not given a decent amount of time to finish the course, even when I asked for extension. If this is the way these courses are, its better of learning from youtube. It is not worth the money

Dry and uninformative. Immense space for improvement. Corrections should be made to videos instead of having numerous revisions comments after lecture. Some variables introduced haphazardly. Notation not explained well, some clashing with linear algebra conventions. Coding exercises are elementary hyper guided.
By Evan J•
Week 4 is impossible to follow both in lecture and in the assignements which is more than likely done intentionally as this is the last assignment before you can stop paying their monthly fee.

Grader is the worst and no help even in the forums inspite of getting the same output the grader is still failing and no one is telling why. Forced to drop out of this course now

Clearly the less structured and more confusing Course within the DeepLearning Specialization, a bittersweet end to an otherwise great set of courses. Quite disappointed.
By Deleted A•
I would like to abandon this course and stop paying for a course I want to prepare better before maybe launching a new attempt..
