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.

Need more assignments on Python. Requires much more emphasis on libraries like pandas and numpy.

Best thing about the course are the notebooks. Other than that, the lessons feel rather shallow.
