Very good coverage of different supervised and unsupervised algorithms, and lots of practical insights around implementation. All the explanations provided helped to understand the concepts very well.

Great overview, enough details to have a good understanding of why the techniques work well. Especially appreciated the practical advice regarding debugging, algorithm evaluation and ceiling analysis.

Just about perfect. The only negative thing I can say is that I feel like the practical aspects of how to apply the ML techniques was lacking. The programming exercises were couched in terms of real-world problems, but so much of the focus was on understanding the math behind the machine learning algorithms that the details of how to setup a problem and solve it via ML were somewhat lost. With so many toolkits available today to perform the math parts of the work, it seems to me that the practical application of the techniques is more important than the math and I would have liked more focus in that area.

Good overview, but less theory. Would also maybe be good to have had a section on starting from a problem and how to select a technique (supervised learning, unsupervised learning, etc.).

Great course and subject. The videos where well done and the exercises had just the right amount of difficulty.

Hands-down the most focused and refreshing introduction to the buzz that is statistics on steroids.

Great class from practical point of view. It would be great if there where more videos with derivations.

This course provides sufficient knowledge to understand a lot of jargon related to ML.

The course is exceptional. However there are many errata that could be corrected but Coursera refuses to do so.

Very good introduction to machine learning. The content is fairly basic, it's up to you is you want to go deeper into the subject.
Only one downside, the quality of videos is low.

The course was a good introduction on machine learning and the associated math in a simple and lucid manner. More mathematical rigor could have been introduced in some concepts.

This is a very easy to understand and well informative course with very good examples for each of the topics. The best part is you get to see a few very interesting cases where machine learning just hits the bull's eye, which keeps you motivated throughout the course. Overall, the course is neither too mathematical nor too much formula based, it has a good balance between two.

Nice introductory course. Was expecting a bit more advanced maths, etc., but I guess one has to make compromises. Very interesting tips on performance analysis of machine learning algorithms.

A good introductory course that isn't too heavy on math. Programming assignments are pretty easy too. I'd enjoy the course more if the math were more involved. At the very least, this course will give you a qualitative understanding of the basics of machine learning. The (ungraded) additional resources are great if you like getting into the details of what you're learning and you'll learn much more if you read them. You'll probably finish this course in a couple of weeks if you're accustomed to college level math.

Its a good course for beginner. But at some places its difficult to understand what is happening.
some topic can be explained better i feel like week 10.
Overall its a good kick start for ML

A good introductory course, but there are two issues:
1. The programming exercises are a bit dumbed down (you mostly fill in code fragments rather than write everything from scratch, which could make you miss a few points about how it all works).
2. Professor Ng at the end tells you that "now you are expert in machine learning". This is a lie.

some weeks are really easy and understandable, but some which consist of 2x number of lessons are far more challengable, moreover the topic during such weeks may be also way more harder. i would really consider somehow redistribute tasks/lessons to make all weeks of a similar level of understandability and possessing the same number of video lessons.
overall it's a really great course though

Really nice course, but the quizzes kind of take much from the examples presented in the lectures, so it seems to me like learning by heart would be somehow enough to get the grades. Comprehension could be more emphasized in the tests. Said another way, I found the quizzes to be rather easy (some questions were tricky, but many seemed to me rather obvious).

This is a basic course that will provide good fundamentals in ML. If you are already a student with advanced degree in Mathematics/Engg or a professional with decade of experience might find the class a bit slow. However, it was well worth it.

Great course. Would have liked to have a final project and some more in-depth videos for the mathematics of some of the algorithms. Slides/notes for each lecture or unit or week would be extremely helpful for those who take the class in the future or for those who have finished and would like to review the material. The programming assignments were very interesting and close to the real world. Enjoyed the course overall.
