Product is rated as #85 in category Data Science

This course will introduce the learner to the basics of the python programming environment, including fundamental python programming techniques such as lambdas, reading and manipulating csv files, and the numpy library. The course will introduce data manipulation and cleaning techniques using the popular python pandas data science library and introduce the abstraction of the Series and DataFrame as the central data structures for data analysis, along with tutorials on how to use functions such as groupby, merge, and pivot tables effectively. By the end of this course, students will be able to take tabular data, clean it, manipulate it, and run basic inferential statistical analyses. This course should be taken before any of the other Applied Data Science with Python courses: Applied Plotting, Charting & Data Representation in Python, Applied Machine Learning in Python, Applied Text Mining in Python, Applied Social Network Analysis in Python.

    Good materials and videos, iteresting exercises – the only thing I would improve is the exercises description – not for all of the exerisises it was clear enough for me (especially as I’m not from the US and I’m not familiar with your census data 🙂 )

    The content of the course is really good but the outdated version of Anaconda they are using is a real pain, because you can’t use many features available and causing serious problems when trying to submit the assignment. For a course like this you should consider using at least a recent version of the tools. Also the speed in which the instructor is talking is like a machine gun, without making almost any pause, and thus making really difficult to keep up. I don’t know if they modified the speed of the videos or it is the way the instructor usually talk. I strongly suggest to review this aspect of the course.

    ‘Introduction’ is a bit of a misnomer for the course. If you already have even a fairly elementary understanding of analytics/data science, this course adds nothing of value; if you don’t have that understanding, you don’t really a great intro into what it is. If you already have at least some programming and/or python experience, this course does a good job of showing you the kind of tools Python has specifically for dealing with data; if you don’t have any programming experience (especially in python), you may be way out of your depth. The exercises were well designed and were great learning opportunities, but were far more difficult than course materials implied, especially for python beginners. In spite of limited lectured information, the activities helped me get a great appreciation of python, which is the course’s saving grace.

    Course content was generally good although sometimes the lecturer brushes over topics that could do with more explanation. He may explain 10 things you can do in quick succession making it hard to remember all of the points. Exercises were good but there is a big jump on week 3 and 4 and relies on students to spend time themselves searching the web for solutions to the problems. Whilst it is good to be independent, asking for things that haven’t been taught in the class can be hard for some.

    I agree with some reviews saying that course was mostly limited to self–learning. Videos were rushed and learning mostly limited to self–studying. Assignments descriptions were confusing and not well explained, not to mention that it takes hours to figure out why correct solution is not accepted. I’d say writing code (correctly) takes 4 hours but then you need 8 hours to figure out why your answer is not accepted.

    Outstandingly well composed and presented in every way.

    This course is very difficult. This is first of all not a introductory course. The instructor teaches basic stuff but the assignments were look like mountain. It is quite impossible for a beginner to solve this type of assignment problems without having a very good background in python programming and data structure handling. I should recommend, the instructor should revise the course content. Please bring balance between what you are teaching and what you are expecting from student. After taking this course, I personally demotivated from taking further courses in this specialization. *********** I will recommend going for IBM data science specialization.********

    The assignment of week 4 is wrongly explained in the jupyter notebook. It says that the price ration is equal to quarter before recession divided by quarter bottom recession. When you do so you will never get a validated result. The only result validated is recession bottom minus recession start! Giving assigments should include expected solution. Now you upload your file several times in order to figure out you are using the wrong formula.

    i like the course quite a lot. It is very systemetic and well designed. However, personally i think week four is relatively insufficient. Maybe the explanation of mathematics could be less ( coz those are quite basic math at University) and add more test type and examples. Besides, as for the assignment, I think for some quesitons, the explaination is not clear enough, like in assignment 4 last question, “between start and bottom” includes start point or not?

    Overall, this was a good introductory course to data science with python. With some previous python experience, I was able to follow along with most examples and assignments. I had not worked with Jupyter notebooks previously, so this course served to get me comfortable with using both notebooks and the pandas library. I found the reading assignments on [data] science to be enjoyable, and perspective broadening. In my opinion, the course somewhat underestimates the time required for assignments by someone not familiar with pd (nontheless the assignments themselves were useful). The existing message boards/forums were useful for figuring out problematic assignments.

    It helps to learn how to clean up datasets in Python. 5 stars for it. Some information for who want to try this class: a. The course introduction shows 18 hrs to complete the course. As a person with limited experience in Python, and as a person who mainly use Excel to deal with datasets for a long time, it took maybe >30 hours: 4 hours every day for a week, maybe more hours on weekends. b. The course says an intermediate level. The time spent on lectures might be 1/10 1/5 of the time spent on assignments. In other words, self learning is highly demanded. c. The discussion forums are helpful. Read through them before starting doing assignments might save time. Some expectations if the course material will be updated someday in the future: a. Have a short video to clarify or explain the questions in the assignments. If there are some common questions in the forum over the past years, there are reasons for them. A bit more information might be needed, eg. a math definition for a concept. b. The auto grader is great, but it may not provide enough information on why the answer is wrong. For some of the common issues, the code for grading may be provided as material for a better understanding.

    I couldn’t get through the class. The problem sets bore no relation to the lectures. I understand that the point of that is so that you teach yourself, which is more “real world” but in this type of work there are multiple ways to solve a problem, and if we never see the right (optimal) answer, then it’s very possible that what we came up with on our own is a super inefficient way to do it. I think the course needs to get the lectures a little closer to the problem sets.

    The course is excellent. I really enjoyed this course. But I think that the assignments are a bit too tough because sometimes the concepts required in assignments are not covered in the lectures and help is needed from ‘Discussion Forums’. Since I approached discussion forums only when I could not think of anything else, sometimes it was very frustrating for me because I got stuck on a couple of problems for even some days. Thus, assignments should be only on the concepts covered or it would be better if lectures could be made more exhaustive so that we can learn more in the lectures itself. Otherwise, the course is great and the person who helps us on the Discussion Forums is super. His efforts are commendable and he is very knowledgable, cooperative and active.
