The lectures covers lots of SOTA deep learning algorithms and the lectures are well-designed and easy to understand. The programming assignment is really good to enhance the understanding of lectures.

The course is very good and has taught me the all the important concepts required to build a sequence model. The assignments are also very neatly and precisely designed for the real world application.

The assignments were not good i think. Because they explained the consepts too long and complicated as like we've never seen these on lectures. I was waiting assignment to require more insight about architecture and less python programming knowledge. This comment is for week1 assignments in special.

For me, there was a large gap on time between when course 4 and 5 were offered (months). This unfortunately was enough for me to forget everything I learned about Keras.
Of course, this course assumes you know Keras so I was behind for the labs
Material is interesting though.

Of the courses in the specialization, this one seemed the least organized and rushed. Some of the assignments had some annoying auto-grader quirks that made troubleshooting a pain. Overall it is still worthwhile, just be ready to search forums for help during the assignments.

Too many thing introduced in programming assignments without explanation. Why the high dropout values? Why sometimes one dropout layer, sometimes two? Many things are just given as a formula, and not explained in a way that would let me make my own network for my own problem.

The lessons are very good as always, but I'd like to be tested more in the programming exercises rather than literally being told what to do and then fill in missing parts of already completed code. Still super glad I took the specialisation, it has been extremely helpful.

Had to rate this lower due to problem with the final assignment. Submission and saving situation was a nightmare, I had to redo my work several times. Please fix this, it's a real downer at the end of the course. Otherwise, content stellar as always.

The course content is pretty good for breadth. However, it falls short in going into depth. Assignments need to be more open-ended and probably a bit more involved. It appears that we are cutting and pasting code that is already written in comments.

This course presents an interesting review of several strategies that are part of the state of the art. However, it is impossible to assimilate how they work in the time devoted to each one. The "fill in the blanks" exercises do not help much.

This course gives a nice overview of sequence models. If it is true that I do not have an engineering background, I felt it got sometimes a little bit too abstract as compared to other courses of the specialisation. However, I recommend it.

I would advise giving more tutorials about TensorFlow and Keras. Those are your main tools and eventually, in many cases we were only required to complete the gaps which don't give you a true understanding of how to use those frameworks.

The programming exercises can be better polished, there was quite a few errors that caused unnecessary confusion to the students. Many times, I felt like I was fighting with the Keras/Tensorflow API rather than solving a ML problem.

Courses had some issues with the grader, and there were some instances where the expected output in the assignment didn't match the actual output, despite it being correct.
See forums for a range of complaints on the matter.

Need more detailed explanation and programming assignments are way too easy.I would suggest to make advanced courses for people to improve their knowledge keeping all this courses also considering not all feel it very easy.

In comparison with other courses in this specialisation a lot of assignments were poor quality - vague descriptions and code logic (especially week1, asign 2 & 3) or just broken (last week3 assignment)

With respect to the others, this one seems to be prepared almost in a hurry and the learning curve is very steep and sometimes the programming assignment don't have a nice progression as the others.

Videos were really informative and were equally interesting, but I believe that the programming assignments lacked a bit in clarity. The instructions were really unclear, it could have been better

Quite a few bugs or abstractions in this course, in comparison to the others the projects feel a bit rushed and pushed together. Andrews's explanations and video lectures were still great though.

this course is the most difficult in deep learning specification, but i think Andrew NG should design more homework for word embeddings and bidirectional rnn, i do not understand how it works yet

The course was great. However, coming from finance I was also hoping to see some examples which use time series so I can get a picture of how I can extend this knowledge to my specific domain.

The module was really good in explaining the concepts, but there wasn't any deep dive on the equations and mathematics behind with the results of making the code assignment harder to achieve.

I gave 5 stars to other courses in this series but this one doesn't deserve 5 stars. There were many typos and bugs in the assignments compared to the other courses of the specialization.

Video Lectures were excellent.
Assignments, however, were buggy and spoonfed you too much. I completed them, but on more than one occasion, I had no idea what the code was actually doing.

Short videos instead of lections.
Copy-paste task instead of exercises.
Loading pretrained models instead of training.
Good full keras tutorial will be ten times more useful.

The lectures were not as good as the previous andrew ng. courses, and the exercises were quite bad in all honesty.
I do appreciate what I have learned, as the lectures WERE clear enough.

Just one observation, the general view I have from this course is very positive but compared to the other courses the program exercises in this course are more difficult to understand.
