This is a question for people who have completed the IBM Data Science certificate specialization.

So I've completed up to the seventh course of the series - Data Visualization with Python. Compared to any of the previous courses' assignments, the final assignment was quite difficult in that it asked the user to do many things that were beyond the course material. This was a challenge for people who don't have a background in programming.

Would this be a similar situation for the last two courses for completing the specialization? I heard that the capstone project is difficult as well. Are they difficult in the same way - requiring the learner to do a lot of outside research for topics not directly included in the course material?

Hi @VirtualM. Do you have discussion forums in these courses? If so, I wonder if you'd get a quicker response by posting your question there. I'm sure there are other people who are in a similar situation. I hope some community members can share insights based on their experience with the Specialization. If you do get an answer to your question elsewhere, please let us know what you learn!

Hi @VirtualM .. Yeah the remainings part of the course is going to be challenging and you will need to plan head of time if you want to meet deadlines and do something unique for your final project. Concerning the final capstone project, what I just want to tell you is that you will love it. Alex and co have really cooked something very tasty and succulent over there 🙂. At the end of the capstone project you will be an acquainted person of data science project.. 🙂

Hi @VirtualM

Ive just seen this thread. I am in course 7 and suddenly am finding it tough. How did your capstone go in the end? Have you finished it and the entire course as yet?

Regards
