TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO DATA SCIENCE IN PYTHON
overall the good introductory course of python for data science but i feel it should have covered the basics in more details .specially for the ones who do not have any prior programming background .
Assignments are way tougher than what is taught in the class, but they are challenging and the help in discussion forums is speechless. Without that, completion of assignments will take too much time.
An excellent course offered by the university of michigan which provides the basic knowledge required for starting career in data science and the concepts explianing by the proffesors were profound.
I thought this was course was good, and was fairly challenging for an online-only course. I thought the lectures could have been a little longer to ensure proper coverage of materials and functions.
