Very learning experience, I am a beginner in DS, but the instructors in this course simplified the contents that made me I could easily understand, tools and materials were very helpful to start with.
Terrific introduction to the Data Science course. Never expected but was extremely excited with the quality of content, speakers and a very honest attempt to making this course interesting.

good start point for someone who interests in Data science with zero idea about Data Science. However, for someone who already have some ideas about it, you can skip this.

This course was very helpful, I had the chance to understand many things about data science universe and what skills should I work on to build my profile as data scientist

good for begginers, not practical but it's will give you nice background for what skill's needed, demand for the field, interesting interviews with proffesors and workers.

The Important parts of the course are all in reading materials. The videos are just interviews, which are to be honest very informative but they were not in tutorials way.

Data science always attracted me. the content is very good to understand What is data science, I will look forward to do more advanced data science courses through courser

Extremely interesting base level course in data science. It certainly helps to assimilate them better, but sometimes the course tends to repeat certain concepts too much.
創建者 Brian R•
The material was a good introduction for a beginner and the materials were easy to follow. Peer review is somewhat subjective, but I guess this is more Coursera related.
創建者 Cassandra T•
I thought the course should have spent more time actually defining data science, data analytic and many of the terms thrown out in the video. Plus the content felt dated.

Really good overview of what Data Science is and how Data Science differes from Computer science, and statistics. How Data Science has evolved over the past few years.

The class materials are elaborate. I love how they explained their real life teaching experiences in data science by two professors. Thank you! It gave me a sound start.

The videos were fine for orientation level, but the readings were totally... most of the readings are basically cutouts from opinion pieces that don't fit with anything.

Very easy introduction into data science. Good for giving people who aren't familiar with it a brief overview of the topic. Definitely could be a two week course though.
創建者 Mark C•
Decent introductory course, which comes with IBM cloud and Watson Studio access. Even better if - it required you to investigate them a little more towards completion.
創建者 Kira B•
There is probably a mistake in the final exam. Otherwise, the course is good. You get an introductory review of tools and get a grasp of what Data Science is all about.
創建者 SR S S•
The cases discussed in the class were good. Since it is the introductory course, definitions were taught. Looking forward for hands-on experience in the further courses

This unit was a great introduction into what data science is. It has given me a lot of information about what I do not know, which is a useful pointer to further study.
創建者 Apurv R•
it is quite a good course to get the basic understanding about the data science.This course is actually helps to find your right foot towards the field of data science,
Content is a good introduction to the field. Some of the quiz/final questions are testing arbitrary details from the reading, e.g. "when was the article published?"
創建者 RAKESH R N•
The course named "what is data science" is excellent. The way the course organised is good. In attracts to complete other 8 courses in the specialization. Thank you .
創建者 Edith C•
A nice overview but I think it could have been shorter.a Perhaps some real examples where data science is used with actual data and graphs would be more informative.
創建者 Durai N•
Good course for the beginners in Data science field. Have enough contents to give overall picture about emerging Data science field and job opportunites. I like it.
創建者 Willard J•
A very succinct overview of data science. Given the learner, a quick peek into the power of data science and its applications. Well worth the time! To the next one!!
創建者 Michael K•
This was my first Coursera course. I found the arrangement of materials to be good. Heuristic. It said a strong ontological premise, understanding for a deeper dive.
創建者 Astrinda S•
A good introductory course for those who are completely new to Data Science. I learned a lot of new jargons/terms that are relevant to the industry today. Thank you!
創建者 Yash R•
A good course for beginners as it explains completely what data science is as we get a lot confused between data science and data mining and other data related words
