This course was really interesting and did a good job introducing complicated topics in usefully simplified form. It was a pleasure to listen to the instructor and I got everything I wanted out of it.
I have not found an easy way to learn how to code with python language. Mentor are really helpful and Dr Chuck is one of the most self explain professor that I have met in my three university career.

I wish greater detail was used for the api access...for instance twurl install didn't work so wasn't able to test various functionality using it

Strange as it may seem, I would have liked more assignments to reinforce all the new concepts I tripped over on my way to finishing this course.

As always it is fun to try things out with Dr.Chuck but i faces some probleme and didn't understand some topics as it was not expained properly

"http://www.py4e.com/code3/geoxml.py" is not suitable sample code for assignment "Extracting data from XML". It makes thing looked complicated.

Though it rushes on some of the advanced concepts, making it difficult to master them, it still a great example of what MOOCs should look like.
Great course! The reason why I didn't give 5 stars is that assignments are too easy. If we can resolve some real problems, that will be better.

This course really teaches me what I wanted to know. Text and sample codes are wonderful. I think it's easier now for me to step up. Thank you.

Good survey of different skills needed and problems that you may encounter. I didn't always feel prepared to complete some of the assignments.

This course of python is very good. I learnt different things from this course like reading XML file ,JSON file, HTML, and regular expression.
fundamental and good
I like this course
but i think the assignment maybe too easy
but still,you can learn something in this course

It was Ok! The preofessor has a good style of teaching, but the depth of material could have been better and the assignments more challenging.

it will be slightly confusing during starting as we cross and go to xml it gets easier
dont stop with week 3 just go ahead you can complete it
by Alison T•
overall covered a lot of interesting material - hope to see more classes that dive deeper into webscraping and not just getting at the basics

A step up from the previous 2 courses. it would have been helpful to include links to more documentation for things like parsing, XML, JSON.
by Akshaya V•
XML was too tough. More time should have been spent to explain how to parse data and use it through xml.Otherwise this course was AWESOME!!!

All these courses really need to be updated to Python 3. There is no advantage in sticking to Python 2 anymore with Python4 on the horizon

Incredible the scope Python has to extract data from the web, this course increased my desire to delve into the service-oriented approach.
The professor's explanations in this course were a bit less detailed than in the first two courses, but overal the course was really good!

In the sixth week, it felt like they skimmed over the harder material and took me a while to understand. other that that it was very good.
by Brett S•
Dr Chuck is great. There seemed to be a pretty big leap from the examples and the assignments though. Thoroughly enjoyed the class though.
by Tal L•
This course was also good but I did not enjoy it as the previous ones- guess that the accessing web data issues were not as interesting...
by John S•
Really nice course. Help was available when I needed it, however I think some of the integration of urllib needed to be better elaborated.
by David M•
Some typos in the assignments, but otherwise very straightforward course with good information. -1 star for not having python 3 "support."
by Jan B•
A little bit too easy on assignments and more practical videos on how to login on a website and navigate through it would have been nice.

Overall is a great introduction for access data, perhaps, it has some empty instructions due to the lack of explanation of some contents.
