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.

Every course has offered something interesting, challenging, and surprising. I am glad I have spent the time with this class. I would strongly recommend it to others with an interest in data science.

the python notebooks are very good but the lectures are boring to the maximum compared to other courses on other platforms or even to free youtube videos

Very precise and concise course, I liked the structure and the progression. At the end, I will only add a bit more about API and more exercises.

Good course for building foundations in python. Take this course before going ahead in this specialization if you are new to data science and python.

Its Very Easy to get in start but in the last week its like blast, suddenly Every thing gets tough.

Try going to it at least twice for the week 5

I really liked this course. It gave a quick review of python with examples and practice exercises, but I wished it had more.

It is to the point.

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.

Excellent design of the course, with video, extra practice, quiz and assignments. only problem is with the IBM platform. It is not easy to use

Videos have so many errors. The course is good for the beginners but doesn't have much to offer to those who are already familiar with Python

It could have been more detailed. By the name of the course, it seems that you will learn Python at a very deep level but it's only basics.

Decent introduction to the basics of Python for data science. Quite a few typos and/or audio not matching the video in the lessons though.

the instructor should teach the course rather than making it fully digital. it is boring. however, the quality of the course is very good

Good course for those who want to migrate from R to python or someone new to data science and learn the basic of python for data science

The course is interesting and covered basics. I will suggest to make this course more challenging by increasing number of assignments.

Was hoping this would be a more advanced course based off of the name. Overall it's a simple and easy overview of some functionality.

Well drafted course. Easy to understand especially for beginners although the exercises and the test could be made more challenging.

As for me final assigment must be more complicated and maybe include some simple app, that involve all knowledge from the course.

Very well structured course. Introduces a novice to the core elements of Python and NumPy. I highly recommend doing this course.

It was a good course, but the last week's peer graded assignment wasn't much helpful and it didn't make much of a sense to me

Great videos and labs. The capstone project was a little confusing for some parts. But overall, it was a really good course.

I feel the depth is not enough,but it covers a good range of knowledge. It is a good course to get you started with Python.

A good course. The final project isn't really that great. The "Data Science" aspect of the course isn't really that strong.

Excellent Course. But in hands on sessions, it is seem like simple codes only we have to do.anyway Great Ideas. Thank You.

The course was pretty good for the beginners in python but can be too basic for someone having a basic knowledge already.
