This course is ideally designed for understanding, which tools you can use to do machine learning tasks in python. However, for deep understanding ML algorithms you should take more math based courses

Very well structured course, and very interesting too! Has made me want to pursue a career in machine learning. I originally just wanted to learn to program, without true goal, now I have one thanks!!

Really didn't like the quiz parts of the course. If it was up to me I would do thorough revision of these.

Decent material and I appreciate the amount of hard work that went into building the course. However, the course should really be titled "Evaluating Classification Methods", as that is pretty much the focus of the entire class. The lectures (especially in Week 2) were SOOOOOO long and very hard to absorb, that even double-speed didn't help. In education, less is more. I would compare this course to the reading of a textbook. There was very little focus on making sense of the code and solving real-world problems and far too much emphasis on shotgunning (what felt like) every single classification technique known to man and trivializing pros and cons of each method. To make matters even more strange, PCA and other useful methods were pushed into "optional". This course should really be a two-part course, especially since the claim is that the course requires 18 hours of time. Sure, type in the code just as the professor does and you get the right answer, but meaning is lost of if you are to adhere to the timeline. If I didn't know more about machine learning and this class had been the first one I had taken, I couldn't run fast enough from the pursuit of a career in this field. Data analysis is intriguing and the methods are varied and fascinating. For me personally, this class was a let-down. Again, I recognize the course was hard work; I am merely stating my personal sentiments.

TLDR; Boring and unstructured courses that do not offer insight. You learn by doing the assignments.
The video lectures are boring and unstructured. You can tell the lecturer really hates what he is doing often sulking and showing zero enthusiasm. Also, he makes you question if he really knows what he is talking about. I am sure he does but his attitude and sloppy mistakes give you doubt. The format of the video lectures is that the lecturer reads a script in front of the camera and the algorithm he talks about is shown in cutscenes. This is a terrible idea. Also, the courses are not well prepared, lacking continuity. On top of that lecturer often makes mistakes and these mistakes are "corrected" by showing you a cutscene that writes the professor wanted to say X instead of Y. This is really sloppy. This is not an open course where you put your recorded lectures to youtube for free. You are delivering these lectures to paying customers. Seriously many free lectures on youtube are better built compared to these lectures. I have learned a lot of things in these lectures by doing the assignments and trying to learn by using google and not via lectures. One positive thing about this course is that there are some good links to papers, websites etc... But you need a lot of time to go through them.

I would not recommend this course except for week 1. According to some forum posts, not only is this course a bit outdated (needs fixes to many parts and they haven't fixed them for at least 2 years), seemingly small but crucial parts of the assignments are not covered in the lecture videos which were very frustrating and time wasting to figure out (4 week course ended up being 10 weeks for me with a result of 93,4% final grade). Combing through the videos turned out to be futile and of course, relying on external sources such as stackoverflow was also not very helpful since the questions asked need to be extremely specific to the course. Even simply submitting the assignments were met with difficulties; and it's similar forum posts week after week.

While I appreciated the difficulty of the course, the poor design and structure of the course is evident with the number of correction pop-ups that come up every video. The professor misspoke countless times over the duration of the course, and there are several typos on the slides that need to be corrected! I feel like the videos were also much more bland than previous courses in this specialization.
Additionally, while feature selection and data cleaning are large components of the final project, they are not at all the focus of what is taught in the course! I think this course was trying to do too much all at once, and leaves you with a shallow understanding of several things instead of a good understanding of any specific thing.

Honestly this course was somehow disappointed I really wanted to learn a lot but the professor was somehow discouraging, he repeated himself a lot, and for an online course and every video been 20+ minutes long and at the end only been useful 4 or 5 min of it… having so much errors during lecture and not following the notebook as it was given to us make it more difficult to learn… I’m choosing this platform (and paying) due the professor been good and this one make learning more difficult than the previous one.

The quality of this course in the series is a far cry from that of module 1 and 2, which is a shame because this is the one that I was really looking forward to. The professor does not seem comfortable and uses a lot of extra words in his lectures which can make them confusing and rambling. Many questions on the quizzes and assignments are not covered or well explained by the material. Many assignment questions have to be explained by teaching staff on the forums because the task is not clear.

Although the course taught me a lot on the importance of parameter tuning and data leakage, I found that often times it was too technical and did not provide the information I was looking for. I found myself continuously referring to notes from other ML courses during the length of this course. In addition, the video errors and challenges with the auto grader were very frustrating.

I was excited going into this course because the others in the series were taught well and I had learned a lot. Unfortunately, this course greatly disappointed. The lectures were dull, included a lot of mistakes, and did not cover most of what was expected during the assignments. All in all, this course was a waste of time versus just learning scikit-learn on your own.

I think this course would be a bit challenging to someone who is new to machine learning. The professor often glosses over import details and moves a bit quickly through the course material. There needs to be more powerpoint and reading material explain what the videos explain.

Unfortunately, for me, this course (not the specialization) seems to be a "review of" Applied Machine Learning in Python" rather than "teaching" Applied Machine Learning in Python. Some codes used in the notebook were skipped by the instructor.

Week three is the worst ..
Lecturer is getting confused a lot in an already confusing topic which ofc makes me resort to outside readings in order to grasp it and leading to stretching the time I need to finish this week

The video and training provided it's not providing enough information in order to complete the assignments.
