Very useful course. Personally, I think that there should have been more focus on the implementation of tensorflow and neural network codes. Overall the course is well structured and very clear.
Introduction of ML for Financial application with combination of Scikit learn, Statsmodels and Tensorflow with neuralnets made this class very interesting. Learned and Enjoyed lot.

It is neither good for the beginners nor for advanced users. Specially on the finance side it's almost useless. People don't come here so you send them to read several different books. They come here so you teach them what they would find in those books. That's the actual added value and the service you are supposed to provide.

The course is very bad in explaining the tensorflow library, also there are no jupyter notebooks to practice, the teacher does not explain programming or mathematics in detail assuming that all students are experts in mathematics or have a Phd degree. Worst coursera course.

The assignements do not match the content of the video therefore you are not able to test whether you understood the material or not. Basically it is better to buy the book "Hands on machine Learning" by Geron and work on Financial exam

The teaching quality is poor and lacks practical examples. It is too technical, which you don't expect for this kind of courses. The mathematics were presented poorly and sometimes without context.

Utterly pointless. The in-video questions were terrible - they didn't test knowledge and were often irrelevant ("Lets move on and learn tensorflow" should *never* be an answer to a question).
This guys uses so difficult language to explain which to me looks like as if he himself does not really know what he is teaching. This is really annoying. The course outline is good though.

Worst course I have seen in coursera so far. Questions in assignments are not explained well. You need to have advanced knowledge and also you should figure out the questions by yourself.

Horrible assignments. No help from TAs whatsoever. Zero finance explanation. And the machine learning content (tensorflow in particular) is outdated, nobody uses Tensorflow 1.0...
by Boris S•
Totally useless course. The professor has no idea how to teach. I recommend to take a good course in machine learning and a good course in finance instead this one.

The course content is okay but the assignments are so poorly designed and no one responds to the questions on Week3 assignment #5.

Very difficult and boring to understand the instructor. Almost like a robot reading through a transcript.
by Ryland M•
horrendous on all fronts. so disappointed. hoping the next course in specialization is better.

Assignments are very poorly explained and not always related to the lessons

the assignment and the tutor's explanation regarding codings are horrible
by Matthieu B•
A guided tour with too many shortcomings and errors assessments.
