Really really REALLY enjoyed this course! The instructor does a masterful job of going from simple examples and building up complexity in a very logical and thorough way.

I like the example given and step by step tutorial given. The explanation of why things are the way they are designed certainly helped me understand the concept. Kudos.

Learn about the diffs between rel-databases, no-sql and blobs on disk. Learn (again!) what mean, stdev, median and kurtosis mean. Plotting with MatPlotLib, brought as the 1st world wonder.
Intro to Spark and your final challenge: execute a provided notebook and just copy-paste the results.
No need to think, just know how to apply CTRL-C & CTRL-V in the end.
Al in all, can be done on a rainy Sunday afternoon instead of 4 weeks.

Don't take this course. It's poorly made, and should not be a part of this specialization unfortunately. I do like the subject matter, but the IBM cloud framework is a headache. I struggled with it and barely passed the final project because some cells wouldn't run.
I did do what I could to absorb the information by looking at the notebook and testing myself, but to be honest, I just wanted to get it over with.

The course - Scalable Machine Learning on Big Data using Apache Spark has too complicated instructions for Labs. This course should be more properly organized like another part of IBM Professional Certificate, Intermediate Level - Machine Learning with Python. I don't understand why this course was included to this certificate. I'm not motivated to continue this course.

The course is a patchwork of incoherent and outdated videos, apparently mostly reused from other courses. Additionally most videos already contain retroactively added comments correcting, mistakes or outdated content. In my opinion it should be obvious that this course requires a complete makeover with updated videos.

This course could be much better. It is not as clear and explained as the first one "Machine learning with Python". It would be good to keep the same way of explaining. It should be "easy" to understand for someone who has never studied AI before (which is the case for the first course).

Compare with the other course in this professional certificate, this course didn't provide clear information to people want to learn. I spend very tough time on this course comparing to the other courses, I just recommend someone make a better spark course to replace this one.

The instructor breezed through course preparation and gave lectures from his car. Very easy course that doesn't challenge you or hold you to any standard of learning. One would be better off learning from YouTube and Apache Spark guides. Don't pay for this course!

Worst course i have ever took in Coursera. I would request IBM to replace this junk course from IBM AI specialization. This course doesnt teach BigData and neither teach Apache Spark. Too some extent it covers Machine Learning.

very very superficial, there is no way anyone can learn apache spark. I feel like I have wasted so much time but not learnt anything at all. Really disappointing stuff from coursera

Poor delivery of course material, even worse video.
Instruction on quiz and assignments confusing.
You may get a bit hands-on experience of Spark but you LEARN nothing substantial.

Started nice with the first two "weeks". But week 3 and 4 are jokes with little to no content and final project is just running a pre-existing notebook and reading results

Very poor content quality, nothing to do with the quality of the first module.
new and complex concepts are assumed to be known from the get go.

This course is outdated, topics unclear, I had to jump to Udemy and Udacity to learn Spark.
Hope to see this course updated, Thanks
