Excellent course and i really loved the concept of peer review assignments as this gives us a true reflection of constructive feedback and also creates a great source of self-motivation.

One of the hardest reviews I have ever written. Because this is not a bad course. In fact, I would normally be happy to recommend it and if I had to design a course on this subject, I would pretty much go at it the same way. So here it is: if you are a newbie to this topic: great go at it, it's fun, easy and interesting and you'll pick up some useful new stuff. If you're a HR person looking for a leadership program, this is probably not the one. Sure the major topics are discussed (and admittedly clearly and well explained) but this course is a string of a lot of pop-culture science (all references being the better known, popular HRD books). But the major caveat: The course does go off track a few times (there is a reference in there that is just not true and the recommendation to use MBTI, although not the worst I've seen, should not be in a course that has science in its name). Having previously read many of the research discussed in the course I must say, that in the end I was rather underwhelmed with it. Especially, as the its main message in a nutshell is: Pick a purpose (no explanation on how) and develop a plan to reach it (the latter, again admittedly pretty well explained). In total, I do recommend the course but please fix the nonsense and the dig a little deeper on the most important parts (finding a purpose, reflection (on the PAP)).

The instructor may have very good knowledge but she made this course boring. I think she need "
Communication Strategies for a Virtual Age" course 1st.

Taking and completing this course has been an enriching experience for me. I learned so much in this course. While listening to the video lessons, I would often paused and reflect on certain key points that made me realized the reasons that I have failed to achieve success over the years despite my best effort. Some important lessons that I learned include the importance of building social capital. Being an introvert, networking has always been a big challenge for me. I also learned some ideas about how I can be more deliberate and intentional in building Social Capital. Developing my Personal Action Plan also helped me to focus on what's the truly matters to me and convert my goals into actionable steps. I would strongly recommend this course to anyone who desires to see positive changes in their lives.

I really enjoyed this course and actually wished that it were longer.
Section 6 feels much more brief than the other sections. I would love for action planning to be delved into in more details. Perhaps Prof. Caproni would be interested in introducing one or two more action-planning related activities?
I plan to go through the course again so I can reap more benefits from it. I will also recommend the course to others.
If Professor Caproni were to start a follow-up course that provides an on-going coaching element, I would be more than happy to take it. Thank you for offering this course.

Very nice course. Thank you to coursera and also to University of Michigan.
After completing the course I realise that,
to achieve success there is also a science hand if we use theses science rules and techniques to achieve goals, then we confidently get success in our works and goals.
I also like some of the points and topics in the course. Like, techniques about time management, skills, become an expert, technique for self motivation and the part of making action plan are really inspiring me to step towards my goals and achieve them properly.
von Amira I•
One of the most valuable lesson I learned during creating my Action Plan is that small wins give great impact to myself. I will appreciate more on my little effort rather than criticize myself on the failure part. This is really helpful in developing my own growth mindset. As a whole, this course really open my eyes and motivate me to earn the success in a better way by providing a lot of evidences from the researchers. I thank the instructor and the university for this remarkable course!
von Ong Y L•
This course provides learners with actionable strategies and interesting research behind success. I love the topics on relationships (social capital) and expertise (deliberate mindful practice), and enjoy reading my classmates' personalised action plans. I'd recommend this course to anyone interested in self-improvement, living in alignment with their values, well-being and/or becoming an 'expert' in what they do in their professional and personal lives.

The instructor gave concrete/real life examples of people that exhibited the qualities that helped them succeed. Scientific studies were also included to back claims. Every video provides meaningful and inspiring insights on how successful people thinks. The reading materials were also valuable supplement if you intend to dive deeper into the concepts. I have a newfound enthusiasm for life and a clear plan to proceed. Thank you, ma'am Paula!

Very well put together. The presentations were smooth and clear, easy to understand, and made interesting with anecdotes and research results. There were many links to relevant outside resources that were also interesting and informative. I learned plenty from this course that will apply to almost all sectors of my life. This is well worth the time to complete for everyone no matter the industry they work in or lifestyle they maintain.

There is no doubt that The Science of Success course is the best platform, that helped me to set the goals and prioritize main decisions in my life. First thing that I learned from creating the action plan is to believe in you abilities and skills. The second one is to be interested in what are you doing and creating it with passion and desire. Moreover, by writing our certain goals we can achieve them by the rule of small actions.
von Ingkar K•
Easy and pleasant presentation of information. If you want to understand the formula for success, then you are definitely at the right place. It explains why it is important to have good relationships, flexibility, and more through evidence. This course will replace many other success books for you. I highly recommend it to everyone. I express my deep gratitude to the author. The author has done a great job.

I really recommend you all to take this course. This course gives me a lot of knowledge about everything I must have to grow my career.

This course, in addition to being interesting, is extremely useful for personal development. I was surprised from the first day I signed up and I think it helps you get to know yourself better and better. It provides you the main keys to effectively achieving your goals, and it really works. I invite all who are reading this review to do so, you will not regret it. Worth it.

Excellent course. The concept of success was discussed through scientific lenses. Great anatomy of the factors that contribute to a successful and purposeful life. It revokes the misconception that successful people are talented, smarter, or just more fortunate. The materials presented in this class are good and the instructor has a clear method to deliver information. I enjoyed this class.

By according me the opportunity to outline what I intend to sacrifice in return for the dividends of success, MY PERSONALIZED PLAN OF ACTION as taught via "The Science of Success: What Researchers Know that You Should Know", provides me the personal initiative to re-invent my life, and insures against the destructive habit of procrastination.

Excellent course, well structured, easy to follow, filled with interesting information and backed by research. I highly recommend this course to anyone striving to learn more about themselves, and personal growth. Many of these lessons are interchangeable with work/personal life, allowing the student to learn through their own experiences.
