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!
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.

Poorly constructed course overall. Covers some key topics so may still be worthwhile but lectures and assignments do not match up, expectation is that you just Google the material to complete assignments. Could do that without signing up for a course.

This course is probably the worst amongst all other courses in this specialization. The term 'applied' in the course title makes you think that this course helps you to build practical experiences in text mining. However, not true at all.

This course repeat a lot what we have seen in the module 3 of the specialization. There is not enough coding examples and the first assignment is not well design. The lectures doesn't prepare you enough to tackle the assignments.

Exercises are pretty good and give you a lot of practice however the instructor is far below par. Just reading out the slides like a typical private uni teacher. I doubt if he could pass the assignments of this course.

Course is very interesting. However, getting your assignments right is extremely annoying. Sometimes you have no idea why it's not right. Every upload you need to change the type of your upload.
By Goh S T•
course materials are minimal and possible insufficient to complete assignments without additional reading materials. Assignment questions can be clearer with sample output will be very helpful.

It gives you a better understanding of SVM and LDA after taking the third course but they have failed to provide enough examples and exercises. Not every module has a notebook unfortunately!
By Samuel K•
Good course with great content and lecturer however the assignments are all buggy and don't run in the Jupyter notebooks. This is frustrating to deal with in a paid course. Please fix!

Lecture was long-winded and could not hit the main points. Assignment was difficult without many explanation. Tutors were more humiliating students rather than providing supports.
By Svitlana K•
Worst course in the specialization so far. Tasks in the assignments are very poor written and are unclear. Just listening lectures don't help you to complete your assignments.
By Dan H•
There were significant issues with the autograder and the instructions for the programming assignments. This course has been around for a while. Why aren't they fixed???
By Shikhar S•
The content of the course was quite good. But the level of teaching was a way too less than the level of Assignments. Ist assignment was too difficult to perform..
By Tal Y•
The course takes you through the important NLP topics, the instruction is decent, but the assignments are clunky and waisted many hours of my time unproductively.
By Lovi R G•
The assignments were far more beyond the content covered, hopefully either the content covered to be extended or the assignment scope to be changed.

A lot of prior knowledge or independent learning is required to get the most out of this course. Needs more code walkthroughs.
By Stanley C•
Assignment grading is way too rigid and not reflective of real world issues. It can be very frustrating.
By carol a•
Instructions for assignments are vague and incorrect. Instructor was hard to follow during lecture.
The video lectures are good, but there are many issues with the Jupyter notebook assignments.
By Alexandros B•
poor organization of the lesson and many many mistakes during assignments
By Alex M•
Instructors did a poor job of preparing students for the assignments.
By Ji S•
Too coarse, quality worse than other courses in this specialization.
By Abhishek J•
it was so basic ! i was expecting some more detailed course on nlp
By Steven P•
Very basic, but clear - just lacks the depth i was expecting
By Laure C•
I found the course quite dry and hated the auto grader...
