The course had helped in understanding the concepts of NumPy and pandas. The assignments were so helpful to apply these concepts which provide an in-depth understanding of the Numpy as well as pandans
Wow, this was amazing. Learned a lot (mostly thanks to stack overflow) but the course also opened my eyes to all the possibilities available out there and I feel like i'm only scratching the surface!

Good through introduction to using Pandas. Instruction needs to go into more examples and explanations. I needed to use stackoverflow to get through 60% of the assignments. Few assignment questions are ambiguous and I never found out why my answer is incorrect. Where's the solutions?
por Andrew K•
The course was really great. Thank you!
Sometimes precisely what the questions were asking weren't clear (This may have been resolved by a notebook upgrade but I did not realise this until it was too late) and I did have some issues with the autograder. Otherwise would be five stars.

I think the course is great, a little bit too much learning on your own. The autograder is not really that clear, it would be nice to have an expected output to see if what we are doing is accurate or not, sometimes we dont have the time to wait for the staff to reply back on the DF

Very challenging course yet very informative. I am looking forward to the rest of the courses in this series.
A word of warning: if you are not familiar with statistics, parts will be very difficult. If you are not familiar with Python the whole course may be very very difficult.

The course is well structured, but the videos are not really easy to use. The camera is on the instructor most of the time rather than the code page.
However the Notebooks and the assignments are excellent and you should spend most of the time on those to really learn the material.

É um curso mais voltado para pessoas autodidatas pois os vídeos são pouco explicativos, curtos e com um conteúdo geral. A fortaleza do curso está nos exercícios que são desafiadores que obrigam ao aluno a ir a entender e aprender por sua conta para aprofundar nos tópicos tocados.

The video is simple, but the assignment is hard, I spend a lot time in discuss to understand what it want and external document reading, how to use pandas or python and hypothesis. in the time pressure.
BTW, I think the value of assignment is 90%, and video is 10% in this class.
the knowledge touch here is really good. however, the speed is a little bit quick. I paused and go back and forth usually.
the last introduction of assignment 4 is not clear. I took quite a long time to figure what to use to calculate the price ratio and what to use to run ttest.

This course has given me the confidence to work on data science. The instructor of the course has helped me to earn this course certificate smoothly, the clarity of teaching is way much better than any other instructor that I have gone through and it will help anyone definitely.

For a introduction course it was very nice! I could learn and practice the basics of pandas and now I know how to find solution for dataframe handling. The only reason for don't give 5 starts is because in the last week I missed a better explanation about the inferential test.

I enjoyed the course and learned a lot from it in a short amount of time. I wish the lectures where a bit longer and went at a slower pace when working through examples. The problem sets were well thought out but the auto grader was occasionally very frustrating and unclear.
por Tianran D•
The course is great and learned a lot from the assignment! I just feel some of the content is a little beyond me since it took a lot of time to finish.
After finishing the assignment, I feel myself haven't done enough! So if possible, I hope more exercise can be posted here :)
por Vincent v O•
Pretty good content, instructor is clear. Assignments are a little disappointing. The grading system is dated and thus if you're using the latest versions of pandas/numpy expect to get many exceptions (without the specific error message) when submitting assignment solutions.
por Alisha G•
The course is challenging, and designed to encourage learners to be independent and make full use of the discussion forum. As long as learners do not lose sight of the fact that help is available, they will enjoy this course. But if they lose faith, this would be a disaster.
por Carola P•
It' s a really interesting class, well organized and with very many useful tips.
Only down side is that the autograder evaluating the excercises is sometimes not perfect and this may be time consuming. Anyway, everything is solved with a very active community and its forums.
por Feng L•
The course is well structured with slightly challenging assignments. It also included some literature and other forms of media that provoking discussion about the philosophy and the future of data science. However, the auto-grader is such a pain... and thus, one minus star.
por Daniel O•
The assignments questions need some polish. And some examples with a small datasets wouldn't hurt before jumping to large amount of data in order to understand some pandas functions. The provided examples are great tho. Overall it's fantastic introduction to Data Science.
por Niccolo L•
A strong introduction to python and pandas. Be aware that the version of pandas used by the grader is slightly outdated, so periodically check your work using the online notebook to make sure that the functions and methods you're calling are compatible with that version.
por Carina G J•
Very good course.
Some of the question seemed a bit diffuse and made answers hard to find, which made the estimated time rather far off, hence only four stars. Other than that I enjoyed the lectures and especially the articels that made me think deeper about some topics.
por Eric N C•
Contents are very good and assignments are challenging. Perhaps I struggled most trying to understand what the questions actually ask, they should be rephrased or be more clear. But it was a nice course and I would to it again. I am waiting for the next courses to begin.
por Santhosh K•
I would highly recommend this course for beginners who wants to get into core Data Science field. The course familiarizes participants on how to handle data including wrangling, cleaning and manipulation using pandas and numpy modules. The contents are well organized.
por Kamil K•
It deserves five stars for assignments (they are pretty difficult - I think it's actually good), but lecture videos are very shallow and you have to learn material on your own, so I would give it at most three stars. Averaging over these two aspects gives four stars :)
por Omkar G•
The material in the videos can be more elaborate, as a lot is left to self studying for the students in order to complete the assignments. The assignments are challenging, which is good, but the video tutorials don't give you sufficient skills too tackle them head on.
por Dominik M•
Quite good course, but the principle of noninformative autograder is devateting.. A tipo in one part caused I've been working on the last assignment for hours... It'd be better to include some more information/checkpoints or to split the tasks to several smaller ones.
por Michal P•
The course is great but the assignments are a real pain in the $#&@.. You can get the right answer but still spend another hour getting it in the very specific format that the evaluation algorithm wants it in even if it's not mentioned anywhere. Otherwise recommended!
