I thought this course introduced the topic of data science very well. I think I have a much better idea how to describe data science and common terms associated with the field (like machine learning).
Very learning experience, I am a beginner in DS, but the instructors in this course simplified the contents that made me I could easily understand, tools and materials were very helpful to start with.

Showing the only expertise talks not the live tutorial how it works but overall it good if you are beginner then go for it you can better understand how can you start your career in data science

The initial course was ok but you should provide more real world examples. Such as several real "reports" and their contents. Just providing report sections and descriptions is not good enough.

Very basic, a lot of very generic "let's talk about X" videos, reading interesting but not very in-depth. Does answer the question "What is Data Science", but left me wishing for more details.
創建者 Sven T J•
Course contained interesting information, but could be condensed to probably one week. There is a lot of repetition and information not directly needed, e.g., info about courses at Stern.

It is a very basic intro course that provides a general understanding of what is data science. It doesn't teach technical skills but it is a good course to learn about the whole industry.
創建者 Francisco B L•
It is ok, but not great. It gives you a vague idea of what it itake to be a Data scientist, but reains very anecdotical and the provided definitions are not as sharp, as I had expected.
創建者 Frederic R•
Videos and reading are informative. Final testing of course is rigid though. Requires students to have a verbatim definition memorized rather than an actual understanding of concepts.
創建者 Jimmy G•
Too non-technical. Could include more concrete project examples ("case studies") even at the beginner level, to really allow students to gain an appreciation of what the field can do.
創建者 Ruben T•
I didn't like the emphasis given to the money you can make by studying data science, I understand most people are just chasing the money but it was totally frivolous and unnecessary.

This is not really a course -> rather some videos about what Data Science is. So if you are looking for some knowledge (for which I believe we in Coursera do) just watch it through.

They say that they offer extra material and you open the page and the information is not found. The course is a good mouth opener for all the opportunities that Data Science gives
創建者 Eepsita S A•
The course was very informative.
The time sensitive locks on the teaching material were very inconvenient and should have been relayed to the student before enrollment.
創建者 Kris K•
Several English and grammatical problems in the questions and quizzes. This made it confusing at times. Also, some of the questions to the videos need to be reviewed for errors.
創建者 Sheen D•
Not sure what is the purpose of this course... just to read articles about definition of data science or data scientist? Or something about the sexist job of the 21st century?
創建者 Pavel P•
Very good for start. On the other hand topic could be said in shorter way. But it is subjective. Therefore I can recommend with this course your journey through data science.
創建者 S. U•
A decent overview of the field of data science and the type of work involved. Not at all academically challenging, but a reasonably interesting, short intro to the subject.
創建者 John R•
Not really that helpful. Maybe if you come from a completely different background. But if you are trying to learn data science. I imagine you know what data science is.
創建者 Sebastian D R•
The course is very basic and is not taught in the most efficient way, it's very theoretical and does not provide very detailed examples of what data scientist really do
創建者 Oliver H•
Needs to be updated to match the online environments used. Quite confusing when you have to really struggle to find the right section of Watson and nearly put me off.
創建者 Karolina V•
Nicely done, but it could be more condensed. I would be unsatisfied I was paying just for this course, but probably good introductory for the rest. Maybe too general.
創建者 Tyler G•
Great to hear from professors, but not helpful to hear from random students. I discount their opinions out of hand, they are not experts, so it's just distracting
創建者 Hugh B•
Did not think this much background was needed. I would argue only 30% of the video material was necessary. However, it still informed me of what data science is.
創建者 Anokh P•
solid for beginners, but a little buzzwordy and some of the questions/answers felt cheap and based on memorizing what was said instead of applying new knowledge
創建者 PETER M•
Its a theoratical course, i had earlier thought it would be a practical one but still am excited to know the background information of data science as a whole.
創建者 Riccardo R•
Good to give you an idea of what data science is but nothing really that you can't find elsewhere. It's a nice set of video lecturer, interesting conceptually.
