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.

Quiz questions sometimes pop-up before the subject material is presented. Some sections, especially the last week of sections, feel rushed.

I don't think the study material was as informative - the assignment was straight out different to what was taught in the videos and labs.

The final quiz is not using proper code formatting, which makes it very annoying to read especially the question regarding python classes

The course should have videos which explain the solution for the labs, as most of them are really difficult and not for a beginner level

Too much was filled in on the notebooks. let us practice. more time spent on setting up and configuring Watson than on learning Python

Started reasonably well with Python fundamentals, but then sped through more complex material in a blur of half explanations and typos.

Starts at a VERY basic level, then jumps ahead to advanced topics too quickly. Some instructions (e.g. Speech to Text API) do not work.

Good overall if you already have a grasp of python. Lots of mistakes with the coherency of the text vs the things displayed on screen.

It went from basic to advance real quick. It needs to be tailored further for students who do not have any background in programming.

Course was easy but instructions for the exercises and the projects were very unclear, confusing, lacking and difficult to interpret.

course is good, but final task is awful! It took me 4-5 times to finally upload it correctly, so other students may have seen my work

MAde the topic easy to understand.

Overall liked the course, but on the beginners point of view it could have been more descriptive.

The code that the teachers for this class wrote contains numerous errors and poor instructions leading to a great deal of confusion.

Modules Such as Pandas, NumPy, API weren't clear it'd be good if we had a human instructor and the topics were explained in detail

Thank you all for this well structured, clean and concise course. Some in-depth examples on python functions could be more useful.

this took the longest time - it was difficult, i needed some interaction with the instructor, some labs did not work - e.g Watson

Week 4 of this course felt very rushed and many of the functions/methods used were not explained, especially in the API sections.

The final test is so hardest than rest of the curse, I think that the curse should be faster in begginer and slower in the end.

IBM Cloud storage has to be explained more deeply, and please update the material according to the actual state of IBM platform

Too straightforward and easy for those who have Python experience. At the same time, it summarizes the main points quite nicely

The class goes too fast. Week 5 was particularly challenging. I had to do this class several times to grasp the basic concepts

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.
