TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO DATA SCIENCE IN PYTHON
An excellent course offered by the university of michigan which provides the basic knowledge required for starting career in data science and the concepts explianing by the proffesors were profound.
overall the good introductory course of python for data science but i feel it should have covered the basics in more details .specially for the ones who do not have any prior programming background .
Fantastic course that I learned alot from. The assignments were tougher than I expected, and it was a great way to really groke the concepts. My only criticism was that the auto-grader wasn't great.
It is a great course to get started in the field of data science. It just require basic knowledge of python. This course teaches you basics of numpy and pandas and how to apply them in data science
