Everything in this course is new to me, but it provides me with many practice so I can gradually get familiar with all these new stuff. I find it a bit challenging, but overall it's quite good.
The course takes you from basic level , step level .But It is quite fast for beginners , you may need pause video in between and try to understand the concept.

This course has been well structured and I liked the assignments a lot. One area of improvement is to make the grading environment stable. This will save a lot of time!

I learned some useful information and got some experience in working with Hadoop MapReduce and Apache Spark, even though there was plenty about the course that made it a real headache. I do feel like I spent much more time trying to figure out how to make my answers pass the autograder rather than learning how to structure my code to solve big data problems. Even though I won't bother to finish this course, because I don't need it to get a new job right now, I figure that what I have learned will give me a headstart if and when I really do need to learn this material.
There are a lot of unclear things about the homeworks. So even when you can run your homework successfully in the docker image, you still can't pass the online tests. Besides, the error msgs shown by online test system (not logs) are also unclear. It can't tell you the real reason of failure.

This course system had lots of bugs in grader system as well in the practice environment. Also the course journey was not suitable for a beginner point of view.

Interesting material, but roughly structured, and the assignments are ambitious in scope but poorly executed
by Nathan V•
extremely difficult to understand some of the trainers, lots of errors, hard to follow material presented, lots of material tested but not covered well in training.

Probably my worst course that I have taken on coursera. Very bad experience in doing the assignments of this course. Won't recommend this to anyone.

Speakers have bad pronunciation and because of it absorbing material is really hard.
