Wow, this was amazing. Learned a lot (mostly thanks to stack overflow) but the course also opened my eyes to all the possibilities available out there and I feel like i'm only scratching the surface!

overall the good introductory course of python for data science but i feel it should have covered the basics in more details .specially for the ones who do not have any prior programming background .

Instructor gives minimal examples and says "go look on stack overflow". Then he proceeds to assign problems that don't really cover what the slides, lectures, or examples were on. If I all I was trying to do was just read some docs and look on stack overflow I wouldn't need to take this course now would I?
Poorly translated and cryptic instructions for assembling furniture are better than what you get here.

I am an engineer and I use matlab and stata for data analysis and currently taking Machine Learning course by Stanford which is fabulous. I did not like this course for the following reasons:
1- bad course design structure
2- so confusing and inappropriate sequence
3- super fast without providing any intuition
4- no fundamental explanation
5- course could be longer and spend enough time in each subject

This course is no good.
Unable to run the assignments at my comfort. Half the time there is some issue in submitting the code in jupyter and with hard pressed timelines at work this does not take me anywhere. As a data scientist with little programming background, it is difficult to enable our journey with this course.
Sorry to say. This is a big disappointment for me.

Not really an introduction course. The lectures are moving very fast, without really explaining the material. The assignments are much more complicated than the material learned during the lecture. Almost not related at all. I had to learn everything from google. Not for beginners!!! This course will take all your free time and will to live...

Waste of time. If you know python, you'll probably learn nothing new here. If you don't, the professor goes into WAY too high a level, and quickly, for you to actually learn anything. Moreover, he barely touches on why any of this is important, does not go over scikitlearn or numpy, both very important in data science / machine learning.

This course is poorly organized, the instructor doesn't clear the most important basic concepts and pitfalls, instead just gives a brief through what can be done. The assignments are terrible, cannot state the problem clearly, didn't say anything about text files issues which causes submission problems, waist a lot of time on it.

1. Very difficult to follow and I had to redo this course multiple times to understand the concepts.
2. Feels like the tutor is just reading off a screen and not explaining a topic from his standpoint.
3. The assignments and course topics are disjointed at times.
4. Examples provided are rather complex and needs to be simplified.

This was the WORST course I have ever taken on Coursera. The final exercise questions were not specific enough and the autograder SUCKED ASS. I couldn't even refer to a column in my dataframe after I closed the browser 3x and rebooted my machine and it still did not work. This course is a WASTE OF TIME. MOVE ON!!!

Very disappointed! The assignments are unclear. To complete the assignments, you need to google on each question especially in Week 2 and 3. If you go to "Forum" page, you could see that there are more than 1400 threads in Week 2,3, which means a lot of students ask questions. The course is really really bad!

Teaching material is poorly organized, and more of information covered in the assignment are not covered in the teaching material. It truly "self study" course. Just skip the video and dive into google. Even assignment question need lot clarification as well. Auto grading is a nightmare.

Terrible course. Assignments are extremely buggy and often touches on things not even explained in the lectures. Mentors are not active. Explanations are sketchy and not well paced. Do this course only for the examples in the Jupyter notebook.

Lectures are brief, shallow and too compressed
Grader is buggy
Generally course is bad. I spent more time in Stackoverflow than here to find answers
I can read books and surf pandas docs by my own, what is the sence.
Just a waste of time

This course makes you give up on data science and MOOCs.
Seriously, the content is poorly presented he keeps on speaking , telling 2-3 lines about a function and so on.
I highly recommend stay away from this pathetic specialization.

this course is horrible. The lecturer go through things so fast without emphasis, let alone highlighting the rationale behind of each things. Totally confused, worst class I have ever took in Coursera

Awful. The examples are boring, pace is slow, and instruction is little more than "go to StackExchange." Most course 'discussion' involves the clunky, bug-riddled auto-grader. Don't waste your time.

Hard to follow this professor. He reads off the script and reads really fast. I have a background in Porgramming but this is the most confusing programming class I have ever attended, sorry :(.

The examples are a bit too extreme head on, I have experience with python but the level at which this is provided is quite hard for anyone to jump in and it should not be advertised as such

Course doesn't give you any tools to use, it only expects you to solve problems with the tools you find from internet. Buy a book, at least it is better.

instructor is too fast, video lectures are not enough and assignment questions are not clear which wastes much time just to understand the question

Videos only cover a fraction of the material needed to solve the assignments. Better off buying a book that explains the concepts in more details.

You're honestly better off getting a free tutorial online somewhere. I would only pay for this course if you absolutely need the certificate.

Among more than 20 MOOC followed, I guess this is the worst one. I won't repeat here the arguments of other learners.

One of the worst course I ever take in coursera. The instructor just writes codes on front of us without explanation.

Bad tutorial video, scattered teaching content, not corresponding homework, lack of material to review the lecture
