About the Course

This course will introduce the learner to the basics of the python programming environment, including fundamental python programming techniques such as lambdas, reading and manipulating csv files, and the numpy library. The course will introduce data manipulation and cleaning techniques using the popular python pandas data science library and introduce the abstraction of the Series and DataFrame as the central data structures for data analysis, along with tutorials on how to use functions such as groupby, merge, and pivot tables effectively. By the end of this course, students will be able to take tabular data, clean it, manipulate it, and run basic inferential statistical analyses. This course should be taken before any of the other Applied Data Science with Python courses: Applied Plotting, Charting & Data Representation in Python, Applied Machine Learning in Python, Applied Text Mining in Python, Applied Social Network Analysis in Python....

This is the practical course.There is some concepts and assignments like: pandas, data-frame, merge and time. The asg 3 and asg4 are difficult but I think that it's very useful and improve my ability.

The course had helped in understanding the concepts of NumPy and pandas. The assignments were so helpful to apply these concepts which provide an in-depth understanding of the Numpy as well as pandans

Very challenging course. But you can really learn something by solving challenges, right? It depends on how much you want to learn from the course.

Very good course. This was probably a little too advanced for me but that's because I jumped too far ahead in my educational journey. Good content!

The videos should prepare newer Python learners better to complete the assignments. Moreover, some questions are very vague and unnecessarily long.

The course gives me an overview of Data science and Data visualization. However more explanation on the statistical topics would be more helpful .

Overall this is good introductory course but the assignment questions should be more clear, as there are lots of doubts at each step of assignment

A great course with challenging exercises. The tutorials could provide better guidance on concepts that you need to take with into the exercises.

Sometimes I had problems understanding the instructions in the exercises (e.g., definition of start of recession). Otherwise, Everything is good.

the questions of assignments could have been framed in a better way. Some questions are very confusing and even the forum doesn't help all times.

Last Assignment which is Hypothesis Testing could be more elaborated and more reading material could be provided there for better understanding.

Great course. I'll recommend changes for the assignments. Some were really vague, especially with the workings. It made them quite challenging.

I feel the pace of teaching the coding pieces should be slower and clearer. However, overall it is a decent jump-start to learning data science

The course was great though the assignments should have more clarity in terms of the questions and language ambiguity should be taken care of.

I learned a lot about Pandas (Dataframe and Series), it's a powerful library. However the course didn't dig enough the statistics part. Thanks

Too little of expounding and too much of searching the net by oneself. Too few examples. It is a self-learning but what's the Course for then?

Do more examples & explain more theory on screen, rather than have the camera focus on the lecturer.

Highly useful intro tutorial. Thanks team.

Great course with everything well explained.

Its just the assignments are a bit tough and you have to explore a lot to get the answers right.
