Great course. It covers a lot of regression techniques you should know.

Very solid course for understanding machine learning principles, including developing methodical approaches to solving data problems.

Great course with just the right level of detail. Had lots of fun implementing the algorithms in Python based on the instructions and all the examples helped really understand what is happening under the hood.

I love the teaching style of Emily. Her pronunciation is very clear and her short series of videos develops my interest more and more. The first course of this specialization made my interest to complete the specialization. I love the case study methodology that clarified all my confusion remained after attending the class.
