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.

Exercises from Week 3 onwards contain coding that has not been taught at all. We are here to learn and not end up Googling for codes so we can self-learn in order to complete this course.
This is not what we have paid for.
By Malle C•
All the codes are filled in and you don't get ample opportunity to do them yourself. It's too easy to just skim through this class, and requires little thinking. Further, the videos sometimes rely on deprecated functions.
By Hakim S•
Need to review the video contents, too quick, weak method of delivering information.
I have went through some courses on Python, they are much better than this one.
first time bumped into this mediocre course in Coursera.

This session has not yet started. You may access this item after the session starts on August 26, "
but today 26/08/2019 , i can't access this course.

The course assignment was very very difficult, I think it would be toughest task for non programming background people to complete this course, it should be less difficult so that new peoples can perform it easily.
By Elvijs M•
An extremely basic overview of Python, and a poorly done one at that. Someone with even a bit of Python knowledge will learn nothing at all. For others there are much better alternatives available online for free!
By Chinmay N•
The subjects taught were hastily taught at a very rapid pace. Also the assignment steps weren't clearly mentioned and coupled with the Watson Studio problems this course was definitely the worst till now.
By Christopher B•
The labs are broken on this course, going by the forum discussion they have not worked for some time.
I would encourage IBM or other sponsor of the course to update/fix it ... or Coursera to remove it.

I don't recommend this course.They say it is for beginner's but i am telling u if you are a beginner don't use course era .Your time and money is precious.It is as if a machine is reading .The worst.
By Abhiraj D G•
The instructions are outdated and the instructors do not care to reply. I am stuck on the Week 5 project and there is no solid solution provided to solve the issue. A really pathetic experience here.
By Mazen H•
The worse way to teach programming! Week 5 is horrible! I can't believe and don't believe any positive reviews about this course. I cancelled my subscription after this course.
By Caio B S•
The course is artificially extended through content locks, so that students who wish to finish it have to pay at least two months worth of a course you can finish in a weekend.
By Lonny K•
typos and the leaps in logic are dramatic. the lessons versus the final project are significantly different. i am not satisfied with this course.
By Siddhant A•
Poorly written labs and assignments. I ended up spending more time to make sense out of them and set things up than I spent on learning python.
By Scott U•
This course is not a beginner course. Unfortunately the material was too vast and too complex for me to get a foothold in.
By Gurrapu N•
Many of the queries went unanswered and IBM Labs were not working half the time.
Regret taking this pain for this course.
By Satya S•
Awful peer assessment at the end with confusing interface that does not work. Do not waste your time and money with is
By ABENA A•
Getting assistance in the forum for this course was hell. Good basic information executed poorly by mods and staff.
By james m•
Advertising for IBM.. course content does Not prepare you for the peer reviewed assignment. Expected more.
By Eleanor S•
Lots of issues with grading in this course. Every time you log back in again, it will forget your progress
By ashna p•
IBM badge will not be generated even after completion of course...several students are facing this issue.
By Amanda Y•
Instructions are not clear at all! Mostly have to google it, teaching staff are not receptive as well.
By Federico D•
I paid for this course. Now you won't let me go and see the next week course in advance? Ridicoulos
By Arjun S C•
Working on Watson studio is so poorly instructed. No one replied on the forum. Utter waste of time.
