The course is very good and has taught me the all the important concepts required to build a sequence model. The assignments are also very neatly and precisely designed for the real world application.
Great hands on instruction on how RNNs work and how they are used to solve real problems. It was particularly useful to use Conv1D, Bidirectional and Attention layers into RNNs and see how they work.

The course was good except first week. I did not learn as much as I would like from the programming exercises of week 1. It could be nice to have 4 weeks instead of 3 for this course. Taking more time to cover the week 1 material.

Everything is perfect, the teaching is excellent, the only problem is the jupyter notebook, its sometimes difficult to debug issues and takes a lot of time and is kind of vague as well in terms of application of the lectures.

some topics not explained in detail. Not enough examples to understand some models completely. As an example, I didn't fully understand what are the parameters for the models, their shapes, and how they are used in the model

Overall it was pretty informational on introducing NLP to me. However, Keras was a little bit frustrating to learn at the beginning. I found out the forum was a very good resource to learn Keras syntax whenever I was stuck.
por Eric C•
Great course! I do feel like I'm just scratching the surface of the types of applications that I can make. I think the coding segments still hold our hands a little too much, but you can't beat the clarity of the lectures.
por Nguyen H S•
The course lecture is grade but I hope the assignment is better in guiding structure, something the explanation is hard to follow, and the assignment should include the transfer learning instead of using the trained model.
por Paolo S•
This was hard to keep up with, maybe too hard. The assignments' difficulty also was on a different level then the lectures maybe there more time should be put into the lecture videos as it was the case for DNN and RNN.
por Aida E•
The videos and programming exercises were very interesting and insightful. My only complain is some of notebooks for exercises include errors and it was just a time-wasting task to find the "trick" to pass the grader.
por Anshuman M•
The content is well captured and Andrew really helps build the required intuitions. But, the assignments are too guided. There is no room to struggle for solutions which often proves to be the main source of learning.
I think the transformer programming exercise of this fifth course is not as good as the others. The methods we must implement are not clearly explained and the research on these really took me a huge amount of time.
por Prateekraj S•
The exercises are too short and too basic for this course specifically. The task is a great learning experience but there is not much one would struggle with in terms of difficulty as there is too much spoon feeding.
Great video lectures, but practical assignments are a pain due to awful auto-grading system and programming expirience in Jupyter in general. Most of the time you'll be searching for an error that isn't really there.

Excellent course, excellent lecturer. Unfortunately some of the test data (week3/lab/trigger word detection/XY_dev/* CANNOT BE DOWNLOADED ... The programming lab sections are nice - sometime a bit too helped ... ;)
por Jeffrey D•
Programming exercises did show you quite a bit, but got complex enough that most of my time was spent reading and understanding the preamble than doing any programming. That being said it delivered on the promise.
por Salamat B•
Course content is really good! However, I found it quite difficult to truly understand deep learning algorithms. However, it provides good glimpse of of sequence models and intuitions behind various useful models.
por Georges B•
Great course and material, Andrew NG really know who to explain difficult subjects in an intuitive way. However, the course seems that it still needs some work (there are some bugs in the lectures and assignments)
por Mayank A•
The NLP Section of this course is quite difficult to understand(The Notations are quite confusing as well as prior knowledge is required to understand) but other than that RNN, GRU, LTSM are explained clearly.
por Seungjin B•
Week1 lessons are a little complex than the previous classes and there are gaps between ground-up python version and keras version of LSTM model. Keras will need to be taught a bit more in detail to follow up.
por Lester A S D C•
This is by far the hardest course in the specialization. But it was explained well. My only complain is there were errors in the first programming exercise. All in all, I learned a lot in this specialization.
por Guoqin M•
Great content! I really love Andrew's teaching style. (1 star deduction for some programming assignments where I spent time debugging but it turned out that the point deduction was due to the grading system.)
por Divya G•
The programming exercises are a little heavy in this course where we need to load and re-load for them to give correct output even if the code had been correct all throughout. Otherwise, the course is great.
por Mathieu D•
4 stars and not 5 stars because the course is shorter than the others and it feels like an exemple in classical forecasting is lacking (sales, time series...).
Really interesting but may be too focus on NLP.
por Zhaoqing X•
It's an excellent course! I will give it 5 stars if it could offer more interesting and meaningful assignments(Not offend, but it a little too easy and the assignments are not very related to the real work).
por Ayush N G•
The course should contain more explanation about natural language processing like tf-idf,lemmatization,stemming,dialog flow. Although i got a good explanation of working of RNNs,LSTM and machine translation
por Md Z S•
Great course to start off with sequence model. The programming exercises were in depth and deliver a great learning experience. Would love to see more of sequence literature in the course's future versions.
