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.

Well! Course is quite better as expected from Coursera. Content of the course is specifically related to the core data science modules and with an extraa advantage as basics of Pyhton Programming fundamentals. Overall, the course is excellent for begineers who wants to build their career in the field of Data science and AI.

A great intro course into python for use in the data realm. It is well structured and I really like the Jupyter notebooks with sample code and questions with solutions after each section. It really allows you to practice what you have learnt immediately. As we all know, you can only get good at coding by actually doing it.

I think it's difficult to understand for who are new in programming. And I think some topic must be added in course. Such as, how can we take input and the key features of object oriented programming . But for the beginner the whole shyllabus of this course is enough to understand the basic operation of python programming.

A very useful and insightful course for any one looking to rewind its structured programming basics and develop functional knowledge of python and more advance libraries i.e. numpy, pandas, matplotlib, bokeh plots and many more. Cloud computing in practice, fundamental intelligence in speech recognition and much much more

The course itself is very interesting and has taught me a lot. There were some technical problems with accessing the final project but these were resolved quickly and my final project was marked within less than two hours. Overall a good experience which I can recommend for anyone interested in Python and Data Science.

I am a complete fresher when it comes to Python. I have only a little background of learning a bit of Java. I found this course very easy to understand and the Labs were the actual highlight of this course where I learned the most. If you are taking this course, do the labs thoroughly there a lot to take away. Enjoy!!

On of the best course that I took on Coursera since it covers python from the basics. It gives an good idea about how to use the tool in an application oriented manner. The final assignment was the best as it covers almost all the exercises of past weeks. also it gives an real life application of how to use python.

This is a fantastic course that takes the learner from the very beginning to the very end of operating with the Python software. This course was both demanding and fascinating, and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. I struggled the most in two parts, but my determination to finish the course carried me through.

The Watson Studio interface has changed compared to the instructions in the course for final assignment submission. I think it would be better to update that part or change the way of final project assignment. On overall, the IDE of Watson Studio is not user friendly at all and very complicated to work with.

Thanks :)

This course covers the basics of Python in great detail. The videos were easy to follow and backed by exercises giving the student an opportunity to see the code and its effect in action. I do have programming experience but am new to Python and I am very glad I utilized the pandemic period to start with a new skill.

Well organized course with effective material to get acquainted with the usage of Python in Data analysis. Thanks, Coursera and IBM also for this platform, if anyone really cares about learning definitely they should have a look into it. One more thing a basic knowledge of Python will help to make it smooth learning.

Well organized course. First couple of lessons are a bit slow (at least if you have experience from other statistical software), but quickly picks up pace and has some really interesting assignments. A few bugs/typos in some of the exercises but maybe that was on purpose to keep us on our toes? Would recommend.

Covered the basic pretty well. Introducing some challenging problems would have been really helpful, even if it was to be made optional. Rather than giving 5-10% grades for each quiz, we could have made the final assignment tougher & with more problems for testing. The test only incorporated problems on pandas.

This course will take you from the most basic of programming in python which is quite easy to understand even if you are not from this field. One more good thing about this course is the flexibility of the course and the self assessment of the topics make it more interesting and makes you learn more quickly.

This course was really great, it helped grow a foundation for Python in context of Data Science. It helped me get over a learning plateau I've been at for some time to feel more comfortable with coding. The coursework and labs were top notch, I'm quickly becoming a fan of IBM Watson Studio from this as well.

This course was really helpful. Instructors have put a great amount of energy, time and effort to make this course valuable and enjoyable at the same time. Learned Python Programming for Data Science and Data Engineering. Now excited about Python Project for Data Engineering. Thank you so much for the help.

Very informative and educational course, I have had a few experience in Python Programming before but this course introduce me a very interesting aspect of it, which is web-scraping. But I recommend anyone taking this course take it slow because it can be very different to understand for newbie. Good luck.

An excellent foundation for Python programming unwrapping many concepts leading to further exploration by the learner. Enjoyed learning. The best part is the questions that pops up in the middle of the lectures and the Jupiter Notebook for practice that made the learning very interesting. Thank you!

To be honest, at first it was good information about Data Science and Analytics. Then when it progressed into actual assessments and projects along with coding that is where I needed to buckle down and take it more seriously because if you do not know the material then the Quiz's become difficult.

This course definitely helps guide you through some basics of Python but it really is up to you to practice on your own in the labs. The video lectures with the diagrams and the voiceover are extremely helpful. Overall, I'd recommend this course to any beginner who is looking to learn Python.

It was a good course. Not that. I leaned lot but I believe I haveth to learn bit more on Functions, API Calls and applications of different API to match with parameters.

However the instructions were good, understandable and lucid in substantiation. Helpful are the aspects of taking Notes.

The content was evenly spread out throughout the lessons, I am a programmer so I think I had an advantage, but this was a challenging course considering the amount of diffrent technologies involved.

I appreciated very much the succint explanations....objects in Python in a 10 minutes video ;)

I have really enjoyed this course. This course is lucid and pretty much understandable for beginners who have little knowledge in programming. For me this course proved to be an Incredible Motivator. I personally recommend this course for learning the basics of both Python and Data Science.
