This course was really helpful in developing my coding skills in python.The exercises helped me to test my knowledge .Overall it was a really good for people like me who are just beginning with python
An excellent course for those who want to boost their programming abilities on Python. It tackles diverse and challenging problems, for you to practice and round out every concept. Highly recommended!

Good course for the beginners. It is awesome for beginners. The exercises and the demo in the videos are cool. Balanced course with implementations as well as theory.

This is my first ever online course which I have completed. I had never thought learning python would be this easy and fun. Really enjoyed the course.

The very supportive way that the course is organized has really helped me despite of my busy schedule.
Thanks for providing such amazing experience.

It's really great course with very good materials of content for beginners, I must recommend joining this course which is coming from Google.

Hello.First of all Thanks a lot, this course was amazing and our instructor made it more easy to study and complete this course.

It is a really good course to learn Python. The Final Project is the most challenging and interesting. It taught me real world Python.
por Ibrahim N A•
The course is great.
My only comment is it would be greater if you add and spent more time on explaining concepts for new comers.
por Ankit K•
Awesome course on Python. The way to teaching is marvelous. Great content covering wide topic explained in a very simple way.
por Natchsasi S•
Suitable for beginner. I have almost zero knowledge in this field and I have learned a lot from this course.

A great course with challenging exercises.

Having insignificant experience with programming, I was already familiar with most of the concepts discussed in the course. I did not, however, know Python, so the challenge was to learn the language. It is reasonably complicated for me, and I enjoyed the time I spent working at assignments and coding. I particularly liked that many examples and tasks related to the real-life problem (many books on learning programming language first give you kitties and puppies examples and then ask you to build a space ship).
I did not enjoy working with Jupiter blocks. The only thing that can justify the use of it is the last assessment, and even with that I still don't like it. It's just inconvenient and does not allow you to see the whole picture, so I had to copy-paste the code into an online compiler and work in it. Code blocks aren't ideal (they do not work properly on smaller screens), but at least you don't have to re-run all cells to see if one small change in one cell helped.
I also felt like there is not enough time for quizzes (30 mins for 8 tasks that require you to write some code?).
However, overall, it was a good experience and I liked the course. Hopefully, there will be some improvements in assignments in the future.

I do love the lecture then answer a question and take a quiz logic BUT, we are taught a simple example then given a question that requires methods we've not been taught so it is expected that we must use outside sources to complete the coursework which doesn't seem right to me. I thought I was paying for this course to teach me, a beginner, how to think through the questions, but I find instead that I'm paying to get a short lecture, and expected to answer much more advanced questions than I've been taught. I showed the examples to someone who has been doing Python for a long time and even they said this way of teaching is, "mean". It's like the creator of this content doesn't want us to be able to complete the material.

There were several frustrations with this course. First, there were bugs, especially in the final project. From the forums, it's been an ongoing problem for quite a while and it still hasn't been fixed. Secondly, I would recommend offering more practice. When new syntax was introduced, you had a minimal amount of time to see it before a quiz popped over the top of it. Practice was stressed throughout the course but none was offered before the assessments at the end of each week. I have programming experience from years ago in a different language. I can't imagine trying to tackle this course with no prior exposure. It's a great concept but still needs improvements.

The class taught a lot of information however the tests and assignments were much more advanced than what was taught. Good thing it was sponsored by Google, because I had to search for a lot of information left out of the course.
My final project worked in my Jupytar notebook and my local python interpreter, but not Google's Jupytar notebook. I asked for help and there was no reply. Google's Notebook also only worked in Chrome (surprise) and not Firefox.
If you are just starting out, skip this and use the U of MI classes first.

Would not think that this is beginner friendly. Object orientation programming is very difficult to understand. However, this would be a good course for those who already have some knowledge of Python programming as it would serve to reinforce the basics of Python programming or as a good refresher. The explanations in the videos are a little too short while the quizzes are quite hard. Explanation on tuples and sets are insufficient I feel. Overall, the course is enjoyable if you are not doing it under time-constraint though.
por Carlos E•
3.5 Stars. Content of the course is great, and I really learned a lot that I didn't think I would be capable of understanding.
Only qualms I have is that the material wasn't thought in a very linear way which could get frustrating and required the use of a lot of additional resources outside of coursera in order to pass this course. Second, the bad jokes of the tutor could get quite annoying when having to re-watch the vidoes.
However, the assignments are where I really learned the most, and I'm grateful for those!
por Andrew M S•
The technical concepts are basic, which is great for a beginner's course. The instructor, however, is _incredibly obnoxious_, to the point that I procrastinated on returning to this course for months and months (and considered just ultimately withdrawing).
There are also plenty of expectations from this course that seem to be built on having previous experience in business, or a formal education in some kind of computing (programming, math, etc), which is not at all appropriate for this course.
por Eric N•
The order of lessons is not necessarily optimal. Some of the problems it introduces you to in certain weeks don't get introduced until the next section. The practice problems also are not broken down in depth prior to being introduced to the student. The videos go into the core concepts and then throw you into a mor ecomplex example so some steps were missed before throwing you in. I had to rely on stack overflow to go over some of the concepts and why certain code is framed the way it is

Fun videos, crappy teaching. You would be better off getting a good book on python and skip the google torture. Very, very buggy; site programming failed on numerous instances. I graduated B.S. Computer Science with high honors and hold multiple degrees in the sciences. There are better ways to learn programming.
por Michael F•
Definitely struggled with this course. I've gotten multiple certs in IT but no programming background. Think this course might be better off for people with slight exposure to Python before. If there were just a couple of more breakdowns or explanations for functions that would help a lot.
por Muhammad A S A•
its super hard to follow if you are newbie in programming especially haven't code in python. The example the instructor gave are so simple but when it come to quiz its super hard. Please fix this, we need practice from simpler task up to more complex task.
por Toni D G•
This course was poorly created. The explanations of each section were understandable; but, the assignments were horrendous. Thank God for the "Discussion Forums" and the students who provided solutions.
por Kristin S•
I wish it had been a little more clear, the week 6 assignment was extremely tough because a lot of us couldn't get the browse button to show up and the code was very tough for what we learned.
por Majd S•
a very good course in giving you the basics but quizzes and assessments are very hard with focusing on mathematics , and have no explanation why the answer is correct or incorrect
