it becomes easier wand clearer when one gets to complete the assignments as to how to utilize what has been learned. Practical work is a great way to learn, which was a fundamental part of the course.
The syllabus of the course takes you in a roller-coaster ride.
From basic level to advance level and you won't feel any trouble nor hesitate a bit.
It's easy, it's vast, and it's really usefull.

Course is poorly organised, even the lines of code input by default in the final assignment have issues running, not to mention that the whole project needs IBM cloud/platform support, something students do not agree to before hand.
On forums, you may see the amount of problems and difficulties of this "course", none from the IBM team replies.
Sorry, I will not be recommending this to anyone.

The instructions for the last assignment are absolute garbage and the last project as a whole is mostly a waste of time when it comes to learning Python and data science. Despite errors and use of depreciated functions, the course was otherwise great but the last project's instructions and overall design is awful enough to undo the rest.

Horrible. Forced to use IBM Cloud and IBM Watson for assignments. Typos in instructions and not enough information in Week 5 material. Very poorly organized and i would not recommend this course because of how much time I had to spend trouble-shooting IBM Watson/Cloud which I have no intention on using.

All I can say is that I passed this course knowing nothing about Python. Is too basic, and nothing is clear probably I'd have learned more in a $9.99 Udemy course. The half of it IBM try to sell you it's tools.
I hope next courses of the "IBM Data Analyst" certificate are better
創建者 Jacob M•
This course is awful. The information is pretty basic and really doesn't teach you python at all. At the end of the course they hand you an assignment with coding that is way over your head and when it error's out you don't know how to solve the issue.

The course content is very good until you get to the final peer graded assignment which is very unclear what to do and how to tackle and you're left alone to tackle a ton of errors that are mostly irrelevant to what you're learning

IBM should be ashamed of issuing such a patchy-mess up and chaotic material using its brand. Google data analytics course is way better in case you want to actually learn at leas something regarding data analysis / data science.

so many issues with Watson STudio and IBM storage. No help from the instructors or Coursera! wasted so much time on finding solutions . Please go to threads and you would get to know every student was facing the same issue

Super fast and the examples don't help for the final lab. The final lab is extremely difficult and there is almost no support or guidance to help you with it. Waste of time. I could have paid for a better python course.
創建者 Yaniv R•
The exercises were few and mainly required copy-paste instead of understanding. Also, the course was full of ads for IBM. Finally, there were spelling mistakes throughout the text, which is just unprofessional.
Do not waste you money. There is no even a place to ask question if you are not sure. They create a forum which is totally useless as nobody answers your questions when you stuck!

I have wasted a lot of time in learning how to save and upload the data on ibm platform rather than actually learning python. There should be other methods to submit our work.

Weeks 4 & 5 are overwhelming for beginners. I stopped my whole Data Analyst Certification because that course is total waste of time. Wouldn't expect that from IBM.
創建者 Jose M S•
You take more time trying to get to work the IBM products than actually learning python. This is specially salient in the peer-graded assingment
創建者 Jan D•
Don't take it. No Course Instructors, no help. Not worth the money...
Even the Working Platform is always timing out or has a gateway error.

A course recommendation for the devs:

Week 5 final project SUCKED .. searching forums for 3 days with a URL that works ubtil it gets to 99% and fails. Really poor
創建者 Alessandra C•
Too fast paced, not very in-depth. Final project is full of spelling mistakes and not coherent with the course. Terrible.
創建者 Michael M•
Worse course ever
Zero connection between the explained material and the quizzes or between the different course parts.
創建者 Sean G•
This course is terrible - multiple typos, no support. Final project makes no sense. A total waste of time and money
創建者 Brendan M•
The final project should have had more guidance and instructions in order to complete in a timely manner.
創建者 Mark C•
The final assignment is impossible to do due to lack of information. Where is the database?
創建者 Denis T•
This was Python for beginners, the exercises couldn't have been missed even by a child
創建者 Wesley v W•
No way someone without Python experience writes the final assignment code unassisted.
創建者 Charles O•
Not very good, course materials do not match final project deliverables.
