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 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.

the last test to pass course nothing is taught about it
By Ali S•
Really poor course, and not well explained at all.
By Harshit D•
Vague assignments- almost everyone gets stuck.
By Kavish J•
yeah , slightly the worst teaching skills
By Ines H R•
The last assignment is very bad explain
Final Assignment is very confusing

I think it is very good course to start data science with python. Modern methods and python libraries for data manipulation are included.
But as course was first created at 2017, there are some small parts of IBM Cloud setttings has been changed. This makes misunderstanding at week 4, then you need to use cloud servises.
Fortunately I understood that services became simpler. But I ask creators to fix the "creating project" part.

Very good course, you can gain a lot of knowledge through well explained videos and labs.
One small issue though. There's a reference in the final Lab to a tutorial called PROVISIONING AN OBJECT STORAGE INSTANCE ON IBM CLOUD. This tutorial was not previously mentioned at all throughout the course.

This is a good course overall, especially if you have some previous programming experience such as R because Python has quite similar logic. Videos are good but labs are clearly the most beneficial. Additional materials are also good. Thanks, IBM and Coursera!

this is the touch week for me cos there is getting trouble in creating storage , bucket and credential on ibm cloud. Finally I passed the steps and got the certification. Actually very experience week.

It's been a very exciting journey and last project was just awesome... It's gives me real world problem. Videos are short and a lot informations provided in that. can't wait for the next course.....

easily accessible online Labs for immediate practice. No need to waste time dealing with the issues that come up when downloading, installing & setting up a development environment.

The course was indeed helpful to learn Python, made it very simple. Though the final test had question which was not very detailed - like I was not clear where to get the GDP data for US etc.
By Stephen S•
With MATLAB being my programming fluency, Python was very confusing at times.
This was the course I needed to explain the most common data types in python in a clear and very concise manner.
By Lakshminarayana D•
Great Learning Experience. Syllabus structure is great to learn python program, algorithms, connecting database and retrieving the records using data frame. Thanks to the professor.
By Júlio L•
It doesn't get so deeper in the concepts, but is excellent for an overview or give some tips of what have to study. I recommend subscribe some Python Basics courses before.
By Javed A•
What a brilliant way of learning. This course proved a real treat for me. I really enjoyed this course. Thanks COURSERA for producing such a high quality course contents.

There are some issues related to the last assignment. Some more clarity about the use of IBM watson studio would be useful for the students who attends this course.
By Deleted A•
Compared to other introductory courses, I liked the things taught. Simple yet very useful and seamless to learn. Could be even better with more practice or labs.
By Dianying Z•
Great class! it would be better if the final task instruction could focus more on python itself than on the storage system.
By Jivan A•
I am from a non-tech background. It was easy for me to understand the basic knowledge about the python for data science.
By DIEGO I H G•
Lo unico que puedo decir es que amo Python, es un lenguaje super potente para el analisis de la informacion
By Lisa K•
Very comprehensive and the format was able to get me using Python right away. The hands on is fantastic!
By Renato L R•
outstanding hands on training, very easy to understand how to apply the theory on the class labs
By Dashiell Q S•
I've never touched Python before this course. I'm so glad I started with this specialization!
