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.
Learnt a lot about new concepts in RNN and LSTM. Really wanted to learn about these models. This course helped a lot. Everything was new and so fascinating. Loved this course and our teach Andrew NG.

Excellent lectures, terrible exercise material. E.g. "You're implementing how to train a model! But we've done the actual training for you already! Your exercise is to add numbers A and B! Number A is 4. Number B is 11! Enter A + B in the box below!" Also, someone did a search-and-replace and converted every sentence into an individual bullet point to reduce readability.

Unfortunately, this course is the less valuable in the specialization. Programming assignment very interesting but no introduction to Keras. To pass the assignments, forum support has been vital. I also found lectures not clear even to the point that to catch some concepts you have to google around for more resources. Unfortunately, I could not suggest this course.

Getting the input parameters correct for the Keras assignments is on par with the satisfaction of dropping a ring, contact lens, or an expensive object into the sink, and spending an hour looking for it inside the disassembled pipes, through built up hair debris and molded dirt.

Overall a great course, thanks to Andrew NG for his great explanations. But a very bad support, I faced many issues in submitting the assignment due to technical issues (notebook not saving) but no dedicated resource to help me. I spend lot of time in resolving my self.

Feels again like authors tried to put everything into just a couple of weeks, thus the course turned out to be messy with lots of details hidden. Even though there was a lot to learn, I am still not sure if I understand correctly how to build a simple sequence model.
By Clement A•
Really good to understand the basics, however, it doesn't use the latest TF2 and the exercises are either trivial because too much pre-worked, or too hard because it doesn't give the information required to succeed.
This course really needs to be updated.

Programming assignment instructions are not well written (clear), and as a result it is easy to get stuck on something of little relevance to deep learning. Also, I would suggest that you make the lecture notes in written format available.
By Chris M•
The lectures cover the basic design of the models but don't help teaching you how to actually use them. I learned more by reading blogs to get the programming assignments to work then this course.

Lectures/Videos were excellent, the assignments were very poor (loads of errors in the code not corrected over 7 months since the course went live)
The course videos were very lengthy and difficult to follow. Many topics discussed in course video were not part of programming assignment
By Simeon S•
Good introduction to the concepts. Really poor quality videos and exercises. Very frustrating when working on the assignments.
By David L•
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 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.
By ZHANPENG T•
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.
By Clashing P•
assignments are very hard and needs lots and lots of search
By Arsh K•
Lack of Keras training made it often hard to do layer code.
By Tom T•
This course needs more instruction on Keras.
By Mark N•
Poor explanation for alot of things
By Milica M•
boring and uninformative
