TOP REVIEWS FROM TEXT MINING AND ANALYTICS
The content of Text Mining and Analytics is very comprehensive and deep. More practise about how formula works would be better. Quiz could be not tough to be completed after attending every lectures.
Prof. Zhai's textbook is well-worth the added investment. His Coursera lectures helped me to "read between the lines."
This is a very good course. I think it provides a very good foundation of text mining and analytics like PLSA and LDA. More advanced research discussed in the last lecture is also very interesting.
Well taught course, would have preferred if went further into topics like opinion mining (even if we had optional lectures or assignments). However, definitely a fun course to learn a lot.
