This course is a excellent introduction to social network analysis. Learnt a lot about how social network works. Anyone learning Machine Learning and AI should definitely take this course. It's good.
It was an easy introductory course that is well structured and well explained. Took me roughly a weekend and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Hope the professor follows up with more advanced material.

The material and assignments were great and well aligned. The autograder for the Jupyter Notebooks was finicky at best and resulted in lots of time wasted getting formatting correct.

Great content but assignment / auto grader sometimes difficult to deal with. In particular, errors not clearly described. Much time wasted due to wrong package version, etc. etc.
By Eric M•
This was an excellent overview of using and analyzing graphs with Python. I learned a lot, got to apply my learning from previous courses, and I earned my Specialization!
By Raul M•
Great class for an introduction to networks.I didn't give it 5 stars because it didn't give me enough information to apply the concepts learned to real life projects.
By Vishal S•
Lectures are very well-designed. Especially, the assignment of week 4 is too good, that give me an overview of how we can apply machine learning in network analysis.
By Steffen H•
Course was ok, the assignments are not too difficult. I wish the course would provided more insights and discussions of the presented metrics of centrality though.
By Sean D•
Overall, good course. It could use more explicit examples of NetworkX in the actual Jupyter Notebook itself, but the coverage of the material is high quality.
By Ezequiel P•
Great course! The topic is very interesting! I would have liked it to have more hands-on approach during the lectures, but the course quality is great
By YUJI H•
The presentation documents are very helpful to understand the lectures. If they can be downloaded to our local laptop, I evaluate this course 5 stars.
By Alejandro B•
Great course, however, there is quite complicated the autograder system. Sometimes it takes too much time trying to figure out technical issues.
By Martin U•
This was a great course, lots of great insights to gain. Only thing that was frustrating was the multiple choice quiz questions. I hated those.
By Tom M•
A bit confusing material since it is new to me. Lots of material in a short course. The auto grader is a bit difficult to work with.
The course provides a good overview of basic measures for network data. I took as prep for a harder course. I would recommend it.
By Dmitry B•
This course was easier that the previous 4 in the specialization as it used them as a foundation for practical graph analysis.
By Victor G•
Intreesting and rich in learning. The last assignment was specially fun. Would be nice with more such free assignments.
By Daniel D A•
I liked the lectures but the assignments were significantly harder and had content that we didn't learn in the lecture
By Lucas G•
Nice overview of general graph theory, and some useful exercises on how it can be applied for social network analysis.
By Mike W•
If you've had prior expose to graphs (e.g., an intermediate-level CS course), the first 2.5 weeks is pretty easy.
By Shashi T•
This was wonderful course in terms of content and content delivery. Prof was really nice. His pace was very good.
By Bart C•
Great course! Love the instructor. Good background in networks, while sticking to the applied side of things.
By Juan V P•
Good course with a nice and clean talk professor. Perhaps I miss some real-world cases in the assignments.
By Gregory C•
Pretty well designed course, except that I found myself battling the auto-grader too often.
By Mohit M K•
One of the more tougher courses in Social Networks but still would recommend to everyone!
By Anad K•
Good Content! And the assignments were just right to augment effective learning.
By Juan M•
The machine learning connection could have been mentioned earlier in the course
