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 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.

I finished the course. It was good but it could have been better with more examples I think :) thank you for the course

Enjoyed the labs but the videos are too dull, i.e. often just a list of possible code with little illustration/examples

The course is good but the videos are too short to understand. The videos should be more descriptive and informative .

Quite tough for a beginner, as there are a lot of things to integrate within short videos.

But all in all very good.

Interesting initial applications for Data Science using Python and Jupyter.

OBS: The videos had many small mistakes.

Pretty nice course, very elementary though. Only follow if you're a real beginner, with no knowledge of programming.

The final project was a bit disappointing, it was too easy and didn't cover much of the material of the course.

Everything is IBM Watson. Please reduce IBM product recommendation and let us learn concepts to apply anywhere.

It was a very good course, but the last two modules and the final assingment were, in my view, too difficult.
