With MATLAB being my programming fluency, Python was very confusing at times.\n\nThis was the course I needed to explain the most common data types in python in a clear and very concise manner.

Great introduction to Python. Obviously this course couldn't teach you everything about Python, but had just enough information to get you started and peek your interest to learn more.

The course assignment is way too confusing and irrelevant to what I've learned in this course. Strongly suggest giving more hints to the assignment or decrease the level of difficulty.

the lectures provides an overview and nothing in details is covered. Also, please provide the slides.

Overall course was good.Except for the final Assignment which was really confusing and a waste of time in my opinion

It's a good introduction , but the final assignment is not about the lessons. The idea is to practice your learnings, so you should change that.

Time waster, doesn't go in depth, the total video content is of less then 2 hours. The quizzes and assignments are too easy.

I recommend Lynda or youtube(derekbanas/thenewboston/CoreySchafer/telusko) or anything but not this course.

Really disappointed.
