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!!!!
Absolutely Loved this course!! Challenging at times to keep up with all the terms and processes. The course provided great insight into Data Science. Would highly recommend it as your first course.

Much of this was 5-star worthy, but a new video is desperately needed, as it does not match up with the current Watson environment and creates a lot of unnecessary confusion.

I felt like some of the information on tests was never covered. Same is true for some modules. Overall, learned tips though. The cheat sheet for coding is extremely helpful.

Not very organized course, a lot of stuff plugged in a module and because of that frustrating to learn. On the positive side, I like module 2 on Git and Jupyter notebooks.
By Nora I•
I liked the course, a good overview. Unfortunately, I had such a hard time with the last task: not because of its difficulty, but technicalities using IBM Watson Studio.

The data platform's name and handling has changed, which makes it more difficult to create the accounts and follow the instructions. The instructions should be renewed.
By Jakub C•
There are some videos which are not updated and IBM Watson doesn't really work as described in scripts and videos. Project parts completely missing for some settings.
By Nelson C•
It is a course for very beginner to know what kind of tools that they may need to use for data science. And it is also an advertisement of IBM for their data service.
By Andy C•
I am ready to have more hands on experience, the overview of IBM products seems much to long. I would rather learn about the products doing more hands on exercises.
By Ray C•
The Watson studio training was poor and dated. The Watson interface was poorly constructed and not intuitive or user friendly. I prefer Pycharm and Rstudio to Watson
By Prachi S B•
It was difficult to get Watson Studio working initially. Faced many issues. And created almost 3 different accounts to get it working. Lost 3 days of time in that.
By Xiangliang S•
The DSX video is very out-dated, I was pretty confused and frustrated while trying to follow the video guides. The R-studio map function was pretty cool though.
By Chinami A•
What tutorial video shows and the user interface (IBM Watson studio) look different so that it was confusing sometimes. The tutorial videos need to be updated.
By Charles K•
Content is good. Videos need to be updated very soon. In the middle of the course I was confused because the videos are so much different than actual websites.
By Ashish D•
Unfortunately none of the opensource tools are leveraged in the subsequent courses.
All the subsequent courses will mandate you to use IBM products.
By Haitham M•
The videos are a bit outdated, especially in week 3. There is no resemblance between the current version of Watson studio and what is explained in the videos.
By Robert I•
It was fun to learn new data science tools. The third week was sometimes frustrating because the course videos did not match with the layout of Watson Studio.
By Sebastian T•
Some of the classes seem rushed, especially during Week 2. It can cause confusion and some fear to attendants. Week 3 picks up the pace again, and was great
By James P•
It was a good basic overview across a range of topics. The assignments were very, very easy however; I don't think it was particularly challenging at all.
By Everett T•
The instructions are not very clear and also the interface for IBM Waston has changed a lot but the videos have not been updated, which caused confusions.
By Jay P•
The content was not so much helpful for someone who is learning the data science, Rather it was more like the pitch of IBM Watson, especially 3rd module.
By Mingshu L•
too basic... and it's really weird that I have to submit so many times for quiz until it feels less of a learning experience but more of a bug experience
By Katarina S•
Not all learning materials are up to date. I needed to invest significant amount of time to understand how to create New Project in IBM Watson Studio!
By Cole R M•
A little too easy (only took an hour or two) and navigating IBM's Watson is confusing at times. Overall though, this course delivers what it promises.
By Max C•
Ok intro - just light on underlying technical details and probably requires a background into coding to really get good insight into tools and uses.
By Александр А•
Didn't like this module cause all this Open Source tools could be mentioned in 1 short video lection and then learners should learn the specific one
