by Amol completed this course, spending 3 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
Taking this course as its part of the Microsoft Professional Program AI Track. I was very excited to take this course but found it too shallow. Had I not watched the lectures of the CS224N on youtube, i would have been struggled to understand the content. The assignments too involve executing the notebooks and confirming you executed them.
