It was an awesome and very hard experience. I struggled a lot with the final assignments, which led to me learning a lot of new things and learning them good. I am giving this project/course 10/10.
Best course so far, under the IBM Data Science professional certificate program. It is heavy on the practical side, which is a good thing as it gives the person a more hands-on experience.

The Hands-on labs weren't working correctly, and you have little time to complete everything.

Basic and most important concepts are taught and assignment was also worth it ! Kudos Team!

If there was more guidance for the solutions it would have been amore constructive lesson.

Nice course to check out the practicality of the tasks performed in real case scenarios.
par Ramazan D•
it was a great introduction to web data extraction, manipulation and display
par Manjiri S•
Well designed course to understand the basics of Web scraping.

pls....... provide some more video on web scraping and html
par Peter V•
a bit too few instructions. However, was a good one.
par Francisco C•
Fine course. I learn a lot of interesting topics.
par SERGIO R M•
Interesting to learn about Python libraries
par Ashutosh B•
More info about webscraping needed
par Abdallah B•
but still very short and simple

After doing several of the other courses in the IBM Data Science Specialization, this course was poorly put together.
The videos were of low quality, could barely read what was on the screen. If it was not for the written script of what was said, then I would not have followed along.
The ideas presented seemed to be constantly jumping around. Mentioning on idea, bounce to another, then bounce back.
The labs were put together well, and were essentially a hands on version of the videos. But organized.
It appears that a different person put together the labs compared to who was in charge of the visual learning.
As for the project: it was a decently easy assignment. I have jumped around in my courses, so I may have had other exposure and experience than others normally would at this point in the series.
A decent course overall. Great introduction to web scraping.
3 stars--this class is not for beginners, repeat not for beginners and should not be included 1/2 way through this certification course. This is a class that needs to be moved to the end of the certification courses, where you understand about working with tags and attributes and know how to look up libraries. You need to inherently understand more than a brief introduction into some principals of Python. It's rated at "only taking about 3 hours", I spent 3 hours just researching how to get a table to populate because the labs don't tell you how to work with classes in HTML, nor how to write a loop to populate one. This is an middle of the road intermediate class, not a beginner one. If you are in this certificate and new to python and programming....wait until the end before completing it, I'm sure it will make a whole lot more sense.

This course is absolutely not for beginners as it is already assumed that you know how to code with Python. While I did not really appreciate to be stranded in being forced to crawl the internet to find how to solved some exercices instead of being taught, I appreciated the Quizz format in this one. Instead of the usual impromptu quizz during a video, you must complete hands-on labs to give the answers which is great. Now, it has been tough on me because I am a Python beginner but for more advanced users, it might be fun. I just wish the lesson would recap at the beginning some of the features/functions which are going to be used during the lesson to ease a bit the stress during the labs. On the other hand, there are a lot of useless sections which really deserve to be grouped together.

I could not answer the 3rd question in the 2nd quiz , to 66.66% grade due to the following issue

Mixed feelings .... appreciated the challenge, but I could never have finished without the sample code provided in the Discussion. Perhaps better to rename this "Web Scraping with Python" and provide a ton more examples of different scraping different websites and practice labs. On the other hand, it did get my feet wet and it gave me the motivation to figure this out further on my own.
