This is the practical course.There is some concepts and assignments like: pandas, data-frame, merge and time. The asg 3 and asg4 are difficult but I think that it's very useful and improve my ability.
The course had helped in understanding the concepts of NumPy and pandas. The assignments were so helpful to apply these concepts which provide an in-depth understanding of the Numpy as well as pandans

Lectures are brief, shallow and too compressed
Grader is buggy
Generally course is bad. I spent more time in Stackoverflow than here to find answers
I can read books and surf pandas docs by my own, what is the sence.
Just a waste of time

As atividades do curso são bem confusas, devem melhorar muito ainda. Não adianta dificultar para ter que passar várias horas no fórum para entender a pergunta e ver dicas. Enquanto não consertarem os exercícios não recomendo.

The criteria to pass assignments are often poorly explained, which results in hours of wasted time looking for clues in discussion forums. It would be beneficial for assignment grading criteria to be much more explicit.

I am really disappointed with the course structure and the explanation. The assignments were really difficult to understand and there were a lot of issues with the grader even though the method and solution was correct.

Worst Course ever.The assignments are way tougher than taught in the lecture.
Complete and utter waste of money.
Please improve the contents of the course and provide detailed list of various functions.

this course is horrible. The lecturer go through things so fast without emphasis, let alone highlighting the rationale behind of each things. Totally confused, worst class I have ever took in Coursera
by John K•
Awful. The examples are boring, pace is slow, and instruction is little more than "go to StackExchange." Most course 'discussion' involves the clunky, bug-riddled auto-grader. Don't waste your time.

Hard to follow this professor. He reads off the script and reads really fast. I have a background in Porgramming but this is the most confusing programming class I have ever attended, sorry :(.

The examples are a bit too extreme head on, I have experience with python but the level at which this is provided is quite hard for anyone to jump in and it should not be advertised as such

This is the worse course that I have taken on Coursera. Speed and assignments are ridiculous and there is no way that you can complete them with the knowledge gained from lectures!!

My opinion of this course has already been stated here: https://medium.com/@masseybr/university-of-michigan-introduction-to-data-science-in-python-course-review-50eb37f5ff0d

Vague. They will introduce an idea in 30 seconds and assume complete comprehension then quiz you on it with no real practice. Not much learn by doing happening here.

Course doesn't give you any tools to use, it only expects you to solve problems with the tools you find from internet. Buy a book, at least it is better.
by Ramadan K M M•
instructor is too fast, video lectures are not enough and assignment questions are not clear which wastes much time just to understand the question
by Marco G•
Videos only cover a fraction of the material needed to solve the assignments. Better off buying a book that explains the concepts in more details.
by Jacob T•
You're honestly better off getting a free tutorial online somewhere. I would only pay for this course if you absolutely need the certificate.
by Davor C•
Course was full of bugs, learning material was much easier and simpler to understand than the tasks and assigments that were given later on.
by Matthew J P•
The pandas software is out of date which caused me much stress and frustration in submitting assignments. PLEASE UPDATE YOUR SOFTWARE.
by Giovanni I•
Videos doesn't help or prepare student very well for assignment. I had to study and found material all by myself. Unuseful
by Yoann G•
Among more than 20 MOOC followed, I guess this is the worst one. I won't repeat here the arguments of other learners.

Bad tutorial video, scattered teaching content, not corresponding homework, lack of material to review the lecture
by Yiming L•
course too fast, they don't explain anything, just run through example. The worst course I have taken on coursera.
by Stephen B•
Unorganized and not very useful. The main goal of the course is for you to use Stack Overflow.....SAVE YOURSELF $
by Ana O R•
This course is a joke. Contents is very very poor. And you will have a lot of problems making the Assigments.
by Mayank J•
The instructor was pathetic. He is simply reading the text and not putting in any efforts to explain things.
