The course was highly informative and very well presented. It was very easier to follow. Many complicated concepts were clearly explained. It improved my confidence with respect to programming skills.
I'm extremely excited with what I have learnt so far. As a newbie in Machine Learning, the exposure gained will serve as the much needed foundation to delve into its application to real life problems.

Videos were way too long. They were only about theory and no code was featured. Labs were packed with code without proper explanation. That way of teaching is just not for me.

Very basic course (which is OK) with a particularly confusing final project. Wasn't hard because of the coursework, but was hard because of poorly documented process.

A lot of mistakes, typos, and misleading concept. I spent more time figuring out the wrong concept than actual learning. Course materials should be accurate!!!

Found this course to be confusing. With that said, it was not a waste of time since there are some labs that are beneficial in understanding the concept.

The final assignment was completely bizarre, I think there are missing some instructions to guide the student, and the avaliation was completely 0/1.
Have to sign up IBM account in order to complete the last (most important) project, which is like doing advertising on purpose.

Introduced a lot of code in the assignments while providing no explanation of what it does. Lazy course writing.

Course has glitch in final assignment. People are completing but it is not completing the course for them.

A lot of spelling errors during the course. The sample presented on the final project is very basic.

The course lacked material on several subjects, and the assignment need more explanation.

"Time series" prediction is missing, I was passionate to learn about that.

Just teaches you to go through the motions. No real understanding.

not very detailed course and proper knowledge is not imparted

It way to Basic. Industry demands of more depth knowledge

Too many technical problems. I was always flustrated...

Course content good. Final project is a sham

Not all it's made out to be.

Very frustrating - students are required to use IBM proprietary products which are inconsistent in their results and even running - the exact same code will run in one notebook but not another. The instructions for the final test are incredibly unclear in what is expected. Their sample code they give to grade the final test DOES NOT run. IF you can finally get it to run it doesn't produce the same results as they require to pass the test. The peer grading is awful - I got both a 0 and a 100 which netted a 50 (fail) twice. The zero was even though I had all requirements met (which even if the results were wrong should have yielded partial credit) and the student gave no feedback yet there is no way to ask for a new grader. I've done several courses via this certificate. 1 - the IBM Watson studio requirement needs to go. It's awful in every way and has turned me off to using Python. How can I use a product in my job that every time I run the same code it gives me different results or just won't run? 2 - the peer grading needs a way to have a request to have it re-reviewed by someone else (I resubmitted with a full summary of my results at the bottom and the same person gave me a zero again). I only stuck through and finished the course because it is required to get the certificate.

I'm finishing this certificate program because it would be easier than starting another one from scratch. I've been disappointed with most of the courses and this is no exception. There are mistakes, typos, and poor grammar throughout the course. They have a system to report mistakes, but I should be getting paid to fix your course - not paying to fix it, right? The quizzes are an unnecessary waste of time (they ask very minute, arbitrary questions about videos that are just meant to give you a brief overview).
The labs are the most / only useful aspect of the course because that's where you learn actual code - but they don't explain HOW the code WORKS. They just say what the code does and then they show it to you. There's a difference, as any good teacher knows. This course was clearly created by data scientists, not teachers (and certainly not masters of the English language). I would recommend this certificate program if you already know python and data science and you are just trying to earn a badge that will look good on your resume.
