Got an amazing introduction to Graph Analytics in Big Data. Technical issues with Neo4J made this course a little more challenging than necessary. But the introduction to Spark GraphX was invaluable.
This course was excellent as an introduction to Graph Analytics and using Neo4j. Not only did I learn a lot, I've been given tasks related to what I've learned in this course after finishing it.

At least, in the previous courses, the instructors were explaining good. This course, for the first three weeks, the instructor is rushing, we would require to pause every minute and see it again. Also the Neo4j has removed the exe file for windows and providing only zip since and year. There is not updates of videos related to that on how to run Neo4j using zip files. Not only on this course, all the courses were still with oldest version of applications. I managed with those applications. But with Neo4j, I can't even proceed with the course. Worst course ever I took. Also I see user who has taken course has posted in Discussion Forum regarding this a month ago and there is no reply for the post from the instructor. My advice is not to take this course at any case.

I was unhappy with this. It was clear that this course was pulled together from a superset of other material, and that it was not checked for consistency or completeness. The students were tested on their ability to write down a specific phrase from a video rather than on application of the principles learned from utilization of the graph database tools. (Broccoli -- REALLY???)
Further, the lack of response to questions posted in the forum indicates a lack of engagement from instructors and / or facilitators.

Very interesting topic, but poor course. They totaly kill the oportunity to tech good things.
Tools you need to accomplish are not working all the time and you need to search for the solution in discussion without knowing what are you looking for. I would appreciate whet they give at least some hint what to look for. It could be valuable. Than you just copy paste solution and do not knot what are you doing.
I think deep knowledge what and why are you actually doing will be more valuable than cover every topic.

The material on graph analytics was of introductory level. A string of interesting ideas, with unclear explanations. The lesson on GraphX was basically a copy-paste introduction to it's abilities without actually teaching how to use it. The transcripts are full of mistakes. Someone not proficient in English or hard of hearing would be confused by them. It was somewhat difficult to understand the main lecturer. The best part was the explanation of Neo4j - and it was at an introductory level. A disappointment.

The worst couse I ever take!!
1) week 1-2 is completely useless
2) The whole Neoj4 part is a disaster. You really need to check whether your protocol can still work under the lastest version in windows
3) The GraphX is basically crap. The pipline get stuck from the filtering step as :
[Stage 4:=============================> (1 + 0) / 2]
No FAQ and No debug,
It is irresponsible!!!

This course is supposed to be the most interesting, and most challenged one of this specialization. However i am quite disappointed with the instructor and the contents he put together. He speaks too fast without much clarity, and worst of all, i can tell most of the time he reads from the scripts without really conveying much knowledge about the contents.

Module 4 was absolutely pointless and terrible. The software was not easy to install and crucial instructions were missing. Additionally, the assignments required working with a dataset of size that was beyond the capabilities of most personal computers.

The last week had exercises run on a Linux VM and, different from the other courses, there were no instructions on installing Virtual Box and the Cloudera VM. I had to get the instructions at the forum, but they should be at the first week readings.

Sorry but didnt see the point to this course as part of the overall specialization. Maybe as part of the "Load" in a ETL workflow but there would have been other options, better options. Felt it was just thrown in.

Terrible. Did not understand most of the course. Badly explained. Manuals to software were not working. Shame, because it is a nice subject.

This course was a bit boring. I think it could have been much more interesting

Can't do the homework because the instructions don't work.
