Great for a fundamental course. I have to admit that I had learnt python a few years back and was using this as a practice and revision course. But I learnt a lot more which I can add to my knowledge.

This is a introductory course i would recommend. I especially liked that the instructors took the time to go through the python visualizer and try to unveil some of the background workings in python.

To many quizes per video and too much Teory

You're quiz question are too long and too ambiguously worded. I spend more time trying to understand paragraphs than actual code

I just finished Lesson 1 and I have already found some issues:
They said that if you divide 2 int you will always get a float number... That is incorrect because it depends on your Python's version.
Ex: Python 2.7.13 (default, Jan 19 2017, 14:48:08)
[GCC 6.3.0 20170118] on linux2
>>> 8 / 7
What is the value of x after this statement x = 12 / 3.
I answered 4 and the system considered my answer wrong. I presume the correct answer was x=4
What is the value after executing this round(45.342).
I answered 45.0 and again, the system considered it wrong. (This is really unacceptable that the system is unaware that 45 == 45.0)
I will give this course the benefit of the doubt and keep going on with my next lesson.

The course should include more examples and tasks for students. Also all the question areas in quiz'es and tests should be covered by the open lectures. Felt like incomplete course.

instructors use simple examples and put difficult ones in the quiz which most of them does not describe how it can be answered in the right way, also it focuses on tricky questions not practical trials for real life situations....overall i found alot better tracks on different sites which made me feel that i wasted alot of time here on coursera.

There are issues with this course. My biggest gripe is that if you do not pass the tests on your first try, the questions and answers will change on your second time around. Obviously this is fine for the questions that you got wrong however it also changes the ones you got right. This makes the tests take MUCH longer than necessary and there isn't necessarily any extra learning gained from this.
However, even with the problems with this course, you WILL learn how to use Python. I feel that the course succeeded in that regard - but I'm not sure that this course provides any benefits over following some YouTube tutorials.
In conclusion, if you would like to learn how to use Python and don't mind something that is challenging and time consuming, take this course.

It complicates things that are supposed to be simple and explainable.

Very rushed, incomplete examples and gaps in content. I'm not sure what audience Coursera is aiming for, but it doesn't seem to be anyone who doesn't already know a programming language.

The instructors may be knowledgeable, but they had no knack for teaching.
