I got a lot from this course but found it hard to finish. The instructors (all video recordings) were reading from scripts and they really lacked energy and everything felt rehearsed. I left craving a human touch to the course. I'm sure they will get better but online education at this scale will always miss something that only a classroom or live training can provide.

This is a great initiative by Google, but I thought I'd be getting something more like a real college certificate. People need to understand that you don't have professors or instructors helping you and motivating you. You don't have a cohort or class to learn with, joke with, grow with. Google touts its large employer network, but no one at Google is in your corner helping you with your resume and networking and job search.

The curriculum is good and you can learn a lot if you're self-motivated, but I think Google oversells and overhypes what they can do. As a starting point this is great, I just wouldn't expect to complete this and land yourself a job. For most people, this just won't be enough.
