I started this course without any knowledge on Data Analysis with Python, and by the end of the course I was able to understand the basics of Data Analysis, usage of different libraries and functions.
perfect for beginner level. all the concepts with code and parameter wise have been explained excellently. overall best course in making anyone eager to learn from basics to handle advances with ease.

The course itself 5 star. But because the lab experience is so terrible, I minus 3 stars. Please fix or remove Cognitiveclass completely from future courses, it delays my learning and interrupt my focus on the subject, there are 3 more courses to go and I can only expect more bad lab experience.

A lot of inconsistency and errors of the code in the videos presented. Expected a better quality for a course from IBM tbh. Also the assignment does not leave any room for creativity ut is merely a "code-along" exercise which does not require a lot of thinking...

This course let me down. The crux of real-world is in analysis and in this course the author, IMHO, didn't do justice in explaining the concepts, the why are things done the way they are clearly; instead the author opted to breeze through things.

There were numerous issues with editing of the content in this course that certainly impacted its effectiveness. While that is not uncommon the forums indicated that these had been identified by other learners months ago and not addressed.

In lab there are many funtion , libiraries Which have been used first time with out any description , then I have to search for each and every funtion or lib which is way time consuming which make this course worst courses in my list.

The content of this course is too basic. Though it provides enough knowledge to start a practice. No 0 to 1 but more like 0 to 0.1. And Forum support is terrible. Can't really answer my question( don't even think they have read it ).

The topics are great, but the content is pretty terrible. The questions are incorrectly formatted and hard to understand. It would be nice if someone reviewed these before they make them live and you have to pay for them.

A lot of mistakes here. Clearly rushed and not given the care and attention it needed. Some assignments REQUIRE you to go to the discussion board to figure out what the author intended and why your code isnt working.

Does the job of a good introduction.
Very limited and restrictive practice and assinments.
For a true learning experience one needs to do a lot of external research and work to show a measureable benifit.

The content is good but there are a lot of mistakes and typos in the material. The peer review is extremely vulnerable to errors - only one person reviewed my assignment and gave me the wrong mark.

Useful course but riddled with typos & inconsistent questions and answers. Needs a proper review by someone (probably not the people answering on the forums, who didn't seem especially clued up).
von Aaron C•
The videos really are not very engaging (relative to any other course that I have completed here on Coursera). The concepts are not explained very thoroughly. Thanks anyway guys.

Too much content, so less practice. This course doesn't teach anything that you can make use of in the long term. It only gives an idea on what you have to work on in the future.
von Sheen D•
This is by far the worst course in the specialization. So many mistakes in the lab session, including unclear instruction, or syntax is not uniform across each module, and etc.

The IBM Developer Skills Network (at labs.cognitiveclass.ai) is very slow and doesn't work most of the time.
It doesn't allow to finish the course properly.
von Ismael S•
Content is thrown to the student with too much information and videos of only 3-4 minutes. Too much to absorb and too little to practice properly
von Malcom L•
more hands on, project based/game based learning. Mindlessly watching videos and regurgitating code in the labs can not be the only way.
von Santanu B•
Not a great course. Sometimes it is too fast and the explanations are very short. More hands on exercises would have been more helpful.
von Rajesh W•
There are plenty of mistakes in the videos and in the lab session as well. Hope you guys can clear out those.
von Wayne W M•
This was a very challenging course. Some concepts were difficult to grasp and required additional research
von Mark F•
Frustrating when the peer reviewer doesn't actually understand Python and deducts marks for correct code.
von Hunter I•
Leaned some, but not a whole lot of real-world application, I recommend people take Python courses more
von Ashwin D•
Not enough hands on problems, including variety and volume. Expected more from an IBM program.

Don't spend your money on IBM Data Science Cert. Course labs are full of bugs and not working.
