Excellent course to get started with text mining and NLP with Python. The course goes over the most essential elements involved with dealing with free text. Definitely worth the time I spent on it.
Quite challenging but also quite a sense of accomplishment when you finish the course. I learned a lot and think this was the course I preferred of the entire specialization. I highly recommend it!

Some of the codes are not shown in Jupyter notebook. The assignment statements are not so clear, need to resort to Discussion board for additional information.

Great course. Worth taking it. Hard, but you will learn a lot. Homework 1 is confusing and discouraging, but pass it and the rest gets more interesting.

Learned lots of new stuff, but some details are not established well including autograder issue at the last assignment. Hope this gets cleared out soon.

A good intro to NLTK and text mining in Python, though sometimes the effort put in to render an assignment acceptable to the autograder was a headache.
By Mauro G•
The lectures are in my opinion too concise. The programming assignments are very interesting. Perhaps the week 1 programming assignment is too complex.

I had the opportunity of use the learned in this course for a project in my work about RPA with python, specifically for process a big volume of data.

Kindly provide all lecture codes as Jupyter Notebook file for each module. It helps a lot for revision. Overall an informative and excellent course.

Its still an elementary course for natural language processing . May be the maths behind the algorithms and topics should be discussed elaborately .
By Fang F•
Course is introductory and helpful. The staff should provide all the jupyter notebook code examples and provide better instruction for assignments.
By Asad M•
Course is good but doesn't cover the whole lot of topics. the instructor is very good and clear. I expected to learn more advanced topics though.
By Alireza F•
I believe that assignments are away harder than the material of the course. The instructor should more get involved in the codes when he teaches.

This is a very fantastic fundamental Natural Language Processing Tutorial, It was nice, awesome and I wish to learn more with Michigan Online.

The assignments are challenging, but they represent the complexity of real life Data Science problems and are therefore highly rewarding.

Overall this is well done course, but the autograder for week 2 needs a lot of work. It was buggy, broken and gave uninformative answers.
By Girish G•
Awesome course..It is a good start for NLP. Comprehensively covers all topics. The Autograder for the programming assignment needs
By Giovanni S•
Interesting but need much individual extra workload to properly implement at work because of the complexity of the topic itself.

The module 4 could have more hours. The key concepts are passed too fast and doesn't have a notebook with the classes content.
By Anad K•
Content-wise course is okey. But all the students faced issues during the assignment submissions because of the auto grader.
By Patrick L•
Great course, didn't expect to get so much value out of it. Sometimes the instructions in the assignments are unlear though.
Had a little difficulty with the codes.
You would have run the code while teaching other wise very useful course. thank you.
By Petras V•
Very good course. A little bit heavy on in-built functions which hides what is happening underneath, but overall very good.
By Edgar G•
Good course, explanation was not as detailed as previous courses of this specialization but. A lot can be learned from it.
By Jiefei W•
The most difficult one in this set of courses so far. It took time to understand the questions and figuring out solutions.
By Soumyadeep D•
Good course but it mainly glosses over several important topics such as LDA, which could have been devoted mote time to.
By Harshith S•
What an improvement from the previous few courses. The instructor teaches much better. I could mine text in my sleep now
