I love the detailing of every aspect of this course. The Labs, the free subscriptions and free trials provided by IBM Skills Network, everything has been so amazing. Thank you Coursera, thank you IBM.

It serves perfecty its aim that is giving a first glance of the open course tools for data science. Of course each tool is briefly touched and it hands over the student the duty to deepen each tool.

I could not be more disappointed in this course and Coursera in general. I feel have waisted probably over $400 on a year subscription that I thought included the IBM Data Science Prof Cert, which was NOT included, and my card was auto charged for half a year which I did not want. I simply want to cancel the $40 I am charge per month and never deal with Coursera again. I would not recommend this service and am extremely disappointed and frustrated. I do not have the time to describe the many problems I had with the course but it included my IBM Watson usage expire and no help from Coursera in trying to figure out what was wrong.

I don't think this course is any good at all. It crams all the different workstations at you giving you tasks to do in each one. Without actually building projects or seriously using these workstations, by the time you need to use them for a project the retention on how do navigate and use them are going to be low. I have totally forgotten how to use RStudio and what Spark is and I am on course 5 of the IBM cert because it hasn't been used since this course. I believe in a stand-a-lone when I need to refresh, this will be good to go back to but seems kind of pointless in the beginning of the Data Science IBM cert.

I have enjoyed the other courses in the IBM Data Science certficate very much, but this one was very poorly designed and it felt like a collection of resources from other courses that didn't fit the need of this specific certificate/course. First, there were sheer endless lists of data science tools, without much context, explanations and examples. Then, there were some more practical parts on basic tools, but the instructor rushed through them (seemingly) without much preparation. It still taught me a few things (by pausing and trying stuff out), but I feel like this could have been done much better.

The only objective of this course is to push IBM Cloud and Watson Studio on the learners. The software is highly dysfunctional and user unfriendly. I can't submit my assignment due to unclear instructions and errors that come up when I try to do so. This is so far the worst part of this whole course. I have found a forum link with some troubleshooting which I have fruitlessly searched for an answer, maybe somebody will find something there: https://www.coursera.org/learn/open-source-tools-for-data-science/peer/xakrA/create-and-share-your-jupyter-notebook/discussions/threads/G7ITBorwEem4khKVBn768g

I regret the low review, but this course needs A LOT of work. Instruction is poorly formatted and (seemingly) lazily and sporadically delivered. This is supposed to be a beginner level course with no prerequisites, however, I wonder if newcomers to the course (and this cert overall) should be equipped with some other courses or specializations/certificates before entering this one. Thank you nonetheless for your effort, and I hope you can improve your material in the future after the chaos of the pandemic (and all the pressure it has most surely placed on you) has subsided.

After a great Course1 i was really enthusiastic. Unfotunately, midway Course2 I decided to unsubscribe from the whole Specialization (after reading several other reviews matching my opinion).
Course 2 it's a bunch of bullshit with videos listing programs, tools, databases and a lot of jargon with no explanation. A lot of outdated stuff that brings 0 added vlue to anyone. Btw. I'm not really a newbie into data science, so it's not about difficulty. It's just useless! Don't waste your time on this!
I think Course2 is doing more harm than even brining something usefull to the table.

I enjoyed the hands-on lab work. Unfortunately, the instructions given in writing and in the videos are outdated regarding IBM Watson Studio, and this led to a lot of frustration and wasted time trying to click around and search for the correct instructions on my own. There were also many typos in one of the written lessons, and the quizzes didn't always match the material addressed corresponding lesson (or, in one case, the quiz question popped up before the topic was addressed in the video). While I'm grateful for the lab work, this was not a good educational experience.

This is just IBM marketing trash, and not actually teaching data science. Google has this one beat by a thousand miles. Why anyone would think this is learning needs is beyond me. They blatantly just gloss over data science and pitch their products, and dont explain anything. The readings from the book "Getting Started with Data Science" is just fluff and useless marketing trash by IBM. This course and the rest of the IBM certificate should be removed from coursera as they are not teaching anyone anything in my humble opinion.

Complete waste of time. Quickly glazed over subjects with no real insight. The interactive labs are just copying and pasting some code with a patronising instructions "Congratulations! Now you've loaded a library!!"
Incredibly frustrating when you're interested in a subject and so keen and ready to learn and be taught. I posted about my problems in the forum and received an automated reply so that really shows that they couldn't care less.
There's absolutely no point for this course to exist.

Unfortunately, a waste of time!
I write this with lo of pain!
This is nothing but PPT with voiceover, conveying the knowledge that is present in google if searched with common sense. I had to drop out of the program with a lot of pain.
Never judge a book by its cover! Just because it is IBM, it doesnt mean it teaches the content in the best possible manner. Human inclusion is necessary for a class to be interesting. And information overload doesnt mean information is rightly conveyed.

Worst course I have ever taken on any online learning platform. The whole course is basically an advertisement for the IBM Watson Studio and other tools. The course content only focuses on giving introductions to all the tools and there are many tools that we have to remember. I don't recommend this course to any person.

There is a lot of confusion while opening a watson account. I faced lot of troubles and still I am unable to access my watson account. I even generated a thread in discussion forum but i was given any satisfactory response.
Highly disappointed with this Course.

The course is way too basic to pay for it, you can get better value for your money somewhere else. I had too many issues with Watson Studio and the support I received from the tutor/assistants was repetitive and not helpful.

The sections on Jupyter, Python, and RStudio tools was very hard to follow and unclear why we were performing the actions. The presenter was very knowledgeable but was unclear how it would be applied.

You are forced to learn some of the Watson functionality, which is not useful for most students. Ridicules for paid study.

I'm giving this the 5 Star review that it deserves, even though I ran into multiple issues when setting up IBM Watson Studio. The application from the video differed greatly from whatever version of Watson Studio that I had logged into - as if the video content was outdated. This made the navigation of the setup very cumbersome and time-consuming and it also hindered and delayed my ability to complete the assignments. However, everything else was either on point or better than the training materials (specific to the DS tools) that I had previously used. It appears that other students had completed their final graded assignments w/o any issues, judging by their submission date after I was tasked to grade their projects...

This was a big boring or time consuming Courese. I invested like 3 months in this course as lost intererest in week 2 or end of week 1. There were so many names of Softwares and Tools which I though are very imporatant and to be memorised thus I was not aware do I really need to remember them or they are for information purpose only. As for rest of the course where Jyupter or Watson Studio Lab comes in then the course get intresting and there was definately fun things to learn about. I even made few notes and posted it on my website tapishdongre.com which will be definately useful in the future while working. In short Week 1 and Week 2 is Boring, Week 3 and Week 4 are Superb thus giving 5 stars for the overall experience.
