It serves perfecty its aim that is giving a first glance of the open course tools for data science. Of course each tool is briefly touched and it hands over the student the duty to deepen each tool.

To the contrast of other reviews, I find the content very well bifurcated and fed to the learners. The course very easily digestable and I have had a great amount of fun learning it.. Go for it!!!!

Cannot follow the course because the IBM tool has changed the process and the course materials are outdated!
Wasted so much time reading the forum to try figure out. This is not productive learning time. This is stupid time that comes from a outdated course

The videos no longer match the cloud/site.
The videos are no help because of that and because they go too fast, without a chance to follow along on the cloud/site. Of course they need to update first.
I got so frustrated I left the entire specialization.

All the assignments stays locked. I tried changing the timeline also, nothing works. Thanks to this course my specialization remained uncompleted. The staff managing the course is doing a great job. Thanks to you, I wont be able to get a certification.

I would not recommend the IBM data science certificate course for beginners as there is no support from IBM and they seem to be keener on the paid their subscriptions. HarvardX courses are less complicated than this and have no conflict of interest.

It is not possible to create an IBM-Cloud account which is necessary to pass this course. And the only help is, to send some link which are not working and say ask the support and send the link to stackoverflow.com which is not really a support....

The videos shown are obsolete and learners are having diffi ulty completingg dinal assignment because of this...IBM cloud is impossible to use....so stressfull especially because there is no one to talk to about this....you r basically on your own

This course made me feel as though this whole certification process is just an advertisement for IBM tools, and not a series of classes intended to teach skills in data science. This course taught me a lot about IBM products - and not much else.

The labs were very poorly explained, with limited explanations and no clarity on the purposes for the lines of code. I struggled to instal and use most of the software because the instructions were not clear enough. I was extremely disappointed.

The course links are outdated, course provided online tools doesn't work properly i could not even access the lab environments mentioned in the course since there was issues with the website i simply cannot recommend the course based on that.

Really bad and useless course.
At this point I know nothing about data (it's only the 2nd course in the specialization), so how can I understand anything about the tools and their advantages, given I still don't know what the challenges are?

Zepplin notebooks were not accessible.
RStudio was accessible sometimes.
TUtorial on watson studio was very different from the actual interface of watson studio.
The course is actually not updated along with the watson studio and other tools.

Google Simulating Environment has the bugs and when you writing to Support, this rich guys stat you to do a free "PROD" testing : no way, it's theirs bugs, and I have my own. What the hell are paid for?
Shame on YOU IBM for such solution!

70% of the content is useless in this module because it is just about IBM promoting their least popular and terrible user-experienced IBM cloud service. Believe it or not, IBM cloud gonna be one of the worst platform that you will try.

I thought that the course was premature. It would be nice to learn about the tools after some background in data science and than I would get actual experience with those tools. But unfourtunatly at this stage I think it was premature.

Very outdated course. Atleast they could have updated the videos to match with entirely new layout of IBM Watson Studios or Cognitive Class Lab. Even the information provided was very minimal with proper background or context to them

Many video contents are out of date which making confusions to learner, i.e. Data Science Experience now change to IBM Watson Studio, but they do not update the video contents accordingly. It then very hard for learner to follow.

IBM should be ashamed of issuing such a patchy-mess up and chaotic material using its brand. Google data analytics course is way better in case you want to actually learn at leas something regarding data analysis / data science.

The goal posts were changing as the course progressed. I could move no further after I was asked for my credit card details to access the IBM Watson Studio. I think IBM should rethink this course to make it more user friendly.

The content was okay but there were a lot of technical support problems. Apparently the IBM cloud infrastructure is in transition. Also, as the course admits, some of the videos use old terminology. This just needs to be fixed.

Not very interesting to get so much theoretical information about all the existing software and tools out there. I would rather first learn some pratical skills and learn about new software/tools step by step when I need them.

It seems that the real purpose of this course is to promote IBM's merchandise, not propagate knowledge. Because of this, there is lot of 'What is the different between ordinary XXX and IBM-provided XXX" kind of junk in it.

Useless course as far as familiarizing oneself with data science tools. It's simply a promotion of IBM's proprietary platform. And owing to the frequent technical problems and outdated instructions it fails even at that!

Trying to create a Jupyter notebook in IBM Watson for two days now as asked by the final assignment. The interface in the video is outdated and I'm really confused about how to create this simple assignment in Watson.

Course videos are out of date. The entire third week is dedicated to IBM Data Science Experience, which has been removed and replaced by IBM Watson Studio. Not much point to a walkthrough when you can't follow along.

Couldn't complete the course because of the troubles with IBM Account, that I have to create to do labs.
Tried a lot but nothing has worked.
I don't understand why students just can't use some opensource instead...
