The syllabus of the course takes you in a roller-coaster ride.

From basic level to advance level and you won't feel any trouble nor hesitate a bit.

It'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.

I took a regular python before, so this course is easy. if you have no knowledge of python, this course help u to start data science without stuck in learning python.

course was ok. Sometimes the requests to download resources would not work which made the jupyter notebooks partially useless. The instructions videos were very fast.

The exercises on the Watson cloud were too complicated to set up, I guess that could have been solved quite easy via a Jupiter notebook. Everything elase was great.

G​ood introduction to Python. But it would be better if it demonstrated the use of API's in a practical way (Like, what can one do with the results he/she gets).

Course content is good, however the Watson Studio partsare dominated by the platform complexity instead of the content and the guides/screenshots are outdated.

Some good content and good explanations in the videos, but the final project is really unclear and focuses more about using IBM software than coding in Python.

For this course, I think it is good in general, because it covers some fundamentals regarding python, however, it needs more practice questions in my opinion.

It would have been beneficial to be learn more about building a dashboard visualization. That part of the quiz/test that I had trouble with for some reason.

Fairly good course, but a terrible assignment. This assignment was not testing what we learned but added all sorts of fairly irrelevant different issues.

Some of the instruction at the end of the course was not very helpful and there were some errors with information or links. Overall it is a good course.

The last part of the course seemed a bit hurried. Not enough practice exercises on "pandas" and "numpy" libraries. A bit disappointed with the course.

Дается очень мало информации, только общее представление о необходимом программном обеспечении. Нет серьезных заданий для самостоятельного выполнения.

I wish there had been alittle more assistance when I needed it, some things are implied, and therefore can take longer if not explained appropriately

Thorough for the time period. However, some knowledge was inferred when doing the labs instead of building on top of knowledge taught in the lessons

Good course but very superficial, in order to truly create skills to find a job more projects may be needed per course to truly master the concepts.

A fast paced course. Good in some ways. But I feel the course is missing a lot details. And there are waaaaaaaaaay to much typos for a coding course

class is not that much challenging

but it's okay maybe this is for beginner

but IBM lab tutorial needs some effort to let user use it in daily work

I hoped to have learnt a bunch more stuff on programming in python.

It was a nice start though. Full with some nice and practical tips and methods.

Advice to someone newly learning phython "Start from somewhere else!" even tho course is good but it's also too small in terms of explaination.

Most of the projects on IBM cloud had errors working with them. Overall, course was a good introduction to Python for Data Science application.

Trés bon cours en terme de comprehension, parcontrel es exercices Quiz sont parfois banal, je propose qu'on y ajoute un peu plus de complexité.

Decent intro to python programming. The videos and labs need additional proofing. The labs need some off script activities in the later labs.

It's an okay course, but it can be better

And I wouldn't advice it for total beginners cause they skip steps and sometimes write wrong syntaxes

There's no fun in doing assignment in lab as almost all of the coding is done by them only , although we can learn lots of syntax and tricks .
