it becomes easier wand clearer when one gets to complete the assignments as to how to utilize what has been learned. Practical work is a great way to learn, which was a fundamental part of the course.

The syllabus of the course takes you in a roller-coaster ride.\n\nFrom basic level to advance level and you won't feel any trouble nor hesitate a bit.\n\nIt's easy, it's vast, and it's really usefull.

A solid introduction to Python that I personally found very useful. The only issue with the course is the abundance of small errors throughout the materials. Final assignment requires a bit of debugging and tweaking to get right.

The review of python basics was nice. The actual AI or data science part was only covered for a fraction of a week, so not much was gained in that regard. Also, it felt like a constant plug for using/buying rights to use Watson.

Good level for people with little to no programming experience. Very quick to complete (can be done in 1 sitting). But gives an idea about how to work with datasets, different libraries and feeds well into the following courses.

Introduces the most important features of Python. Quizzes were rather simple. The final assignment is a total mess. Without information posted on discussion forum by other learners it would be impossible for me to finish it. :-(

The first four weeks are very helpful, and then week 5 is the project. There is little to no assistance in week 5, it's more-or-less sink or swim, but it forces you to apply what you've learned. I felt like I made large strides.

IBM does a good job in doing the python introduction for beginners. The use of Watson studios an Jupiter notebook is good although the platform on itself can be a bit confusing at times.
all and all... great experience for me.

such a wonderful course threshold for students, Indeed i got some idea about data science and what's the data science domain dissertation within python . Eventually this course gave me conception and notion of data science.

The inner workings of the project (dashboard creation process) are not that clear. May be an optional reading can be added for interested students to understand the dashboard creation and the libraries used in more detail.

Understanding the Final Assignment and its instructions were a bit tricky. May be an introduction to IBM cloud hosting and the significance of various credentials required in the final assignment will make it a bit easier.

Week 5 final project did not have clear instructions about how to navigate through IBM Watson Studio. Took me a while to figure that out. Otherwise, the course is pretty good and the exercises are very straightforward.

Very good for getting started with Python. But looks like the interface changed since the tutorial video/instruction have been made so it caused some confuse. It'll be better if you update those tutorial/instruction.

Overall I think the course was a useful introduction to python programming for data science, and the tools and workbooks were super helpful. The instructions could be a bit more clear, but it wasn't enough to stop me.

This course allowed me to learn the basics of the Python programming language and how to apply it to real life problems and data. Very much recommended if you wish to acquire these basic skills. Good job, Coursera

Good introduction to Python for data science. The quality of teaching materials is ok, the examples used are not very useful or inspiring. You will come away with a few Jupyter notebooks for future code building.

The materials are okay, but more exercises are needed to help students get more hands-on experience. Also, a lot of instructions are complicated and seem to be outdated (technical details on using IBM Watson lab)

The course is perfect for me, because I already know Python (so I can skim through material quickly just review the data science related stuff) but to people new to programming, this course may be going too fast.

The course gives a good Introduction to working with Python. Minus 1 Star because the final assignment relies on a given block of code, instead of being a project, which one can solve just with what was learned.

Some of the video modules didn't have up-to-date information, but the labs were very helpful. The IBM Cloud services were slightly challenging to configure. The Cognitive Class Labs tools were very easy to use.

Thank you for the great course! The only feedback I have - it was not clear how to use make_dashboard function neither from the labs nor from the videos. Perhaps, consider explaining it a bit better. Thanks!

I enjoyed this - probably one of the clearest Python beginner classes.
IBM Cloud on the other hand is quite challenging to navigate - not very intuitive and needed the extra careful "follow the instructions".

Nice introduction, but very little previous education in linear algebra and matrix manipulation assumed. Given the emphasis on cloud based data wrangling I had hoped to see larger and more complex data sets.

It really helps a lot understand the python work in data science but in last week lectures like pandas, CSV, numpy etc if there are few more examples of these topics it really help me to a lot understand

Overall, I learn a lot from the course, however there is a need to update the IBM cloud and Watson studio set-up page in the instructional material to be in-line with current IBM cloud and Watson Studio.

some contents are a little difficult, although they are not required to know the rationale, I found myself unable to apply them. It'll be better if it can provide some way to consolidate the knowledge.

A solid introduction to Python in general. It can help you start getting acquainted with how programming languages work in general and gives a good overview of how Python can be used for data science.
