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.

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.

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.

Good and quick run-through of essential python. Not five stars for many errors on videos. Practice Notebooks on CC labs had usually correct info, but many videos had frequent errors which could hinder understanding.

it is a baby class for coding while it is not very challenging and practical. the code is sometimes outdated and is done in a time-wasting manner. one of the biggest problems is that the course refrains itself from using other libraries which are frequently used or common in practice.

Too many spelling mistakes in the notebooks, too many errors in the slides w.r.t indices in slicing, completely goofed-up video on matrix multiplication.

Content is very well done and well-delivered. Lack of attention to detail was the main spoiler.

The course was quite easy, for my taste a bit to easy. The course on creating an IBM Bucket could be better.

There was nothing new or challenging in this course. Also, I felt the last assignment was not at all useful.

Quick, well-presented but inadequate introduction to python basics. Especially "pandas" and "numpy" are poorly introduced.

Content is good but course needs to be updated to reflect the changes to IBMs platform

The final assignment had very little connection with the materials taught. Overall this is a reasonably ok course, however there could have been more practice examples given.

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

Best thing about the course are the notebooks. Other than that, the lessons feel rather shallow.

Video's stop abruptly without completing sentences - especially when displaying quizzes. Labs and assignments are not clear and/or complete making them difficult to follow.
