The syllabus of the course takes you in a roller-coaster ride.\n\nFrom basic level to advance level and you won't feel any trouble nor hesitate a bit.\n\nIt's easy, it's vast, and it's really usefull.

it becomes easier wand clearer when one gets to complete the assignments as to how to utilize what has been learned. Practical work is a great way to learn, which was a fundamental part of the course.

The Course was disappointing. I worked for IBM for 10 years and thus I can assure that this course is way below IBM standards.

The instructions for the Final Assignment were not clear enough to accomplish without help from either teachers or classmates.

It was good but more programming quizzes should be there.But overall it tests your knowledge with all bases and facts clear.

Material goes too fast especially with the API section. Found it to be very unclear at times, needs to slow down the pacing

Most of the topics in Python are covered, but in my experience it would have been better if concepts explained thoroughly.

Quick, well-presented but inadequate introduction to python basics. Especially "pandas" and "numpy" are poorly introduced.

The data for the last assignment was hard to track,


Also, the URL link was not supposed to be graded, 100m to a 90.

Instructions for the last peer-graded assignment were unclear and too complex for the course material that was covered.

numerous typos/mistakes make this more tedious than necessary. english is often stilted making directions cumbersome.

While the content itself was informative, there were so many typos/errors that it was distracting and unprofessional.

Documentation about the cloud is not updated.

Some questions raise before the topic has been discussed in the video.

A good course however more focus should have been placed on the application side i.e. executing programs in python

Not sure if a person who completed this heavy course will be able to use Python freely, but still a good course

The course was quite easy, for my taste a bit to easy. The course on creating an IBM Bucket could be better.

This course might be too easy and I think there should be more exercise for us to practice our python skill

This class could involve a lot more exercises and projects, including projects that are less well defined.

This module only covers some of the basic concepts and a lot of the other important concepts are missing.
