The course is great... You can definitely learn many things... Was kind of hard for me and i went many times back and forth through most of the lectures... However i think i learn many new things....
This course was great! I enjoyed parsing different types of data: from documents and the web. This course is definitely (rudimentary) a must take course for anyone who wants to go into data science.

Its okay there's a lot more tweaking of code than actually building your own. The first two classes of the specialization are great but as it progress its like your writing less and less code.

The assignments are old and out of date. Learning how to program is hard enough as it is. I spent more time troubleshooting than learning in this course.

Please reset my week 5 assignment in using databases with python. Sorry for plagiarism
par Carlos E V S•
Too much SQL. It would be more useful to go deeper into using csv files.

It was in a very fast pace and the examples are upto the mark
par Olivier L•
Not enough material covered to make it worth the cost.
par Edwin R•
I dislike coding but this was kinda fun.
par Andrés E V P•
A very shallow course.
par Matthew B•
No teaching. Just a guy talking. Do the problem sets for practice. If you need help, pause the videos and try the code out yourself.
Seriously though, a programming course where the teacher is not actively type out the code but just scribbling around it. He doesn't work through code but talks around the concepts.
par Victor F•
It is disappointing. If you are looking for learning Python for database management, this course does NOT show that. It discusses basic concepts of database management on SQLite, eventually running pre-prepared Python codes.
The course is nice the problem is on the forum the staff don't have time to answer some of your questions when it comes to have detailed explanations of some part of the code that is not explain in the course.

Good overview. Needs to include more hands on development. 1 star because Coursera wont let me take the capstone even after completing all four pre-requisite classes (this one is the fourth).
par Luciano S•
Didn't see That I have to complete the specialization in one year. I'm sure If I knew this information I wouldn't start the specialization. Feeling really frustrated
par Jim P•
Given that Python 2 was replaced by Python 3 some 6 years ago, I'm dismayed to see that this class is teaching Python 2 instead of Python 3.
par Karl K•
Verbose, wandering. Instructor takes too long to do too little. No value add over a textbook.
par ANANTH P•
because of 1 flag which was given i cant have the specialization
Time wasting. There much better courses for Python.
par Emil F•
Little to no Python content. Very disappointing.
