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!
the assignment was painful (the question is not very clear)

I have major qualms with this course. So far in the specialization, this course is certainly the worst. *The autograder is terrible, having had serious, known issues for 8+ months at the time of this review.*The course content is incorrect, teaching learners the incorrect way to calculate roc_auc_score. *The course blows through certain topics, like Part-of-Speech tagging & Parsing sentence structure, leaving learners like myself without a good overview. I don't even have a good set of links to learn more. I can run a few commands and understand why it might be important, but I have no idea how to use it in practice. *Unlike other courses in the specialization, this one doesn't have good links to interesting academic papers or real world applications.*Unlike other courses, every week does NOT include a weekly Juptyer notebook.Here's a simple solution - give Uwe, an excellent and active Mentor, the permissions to fix this broken course. On the plus side: the instructor is ok, the topic is interesting, and this course really only feels terrible relative to the excellent courses in this specialization. I can still hardily recommend the specialization...
