    I enjoyed it. Great way to practice the new acquired skills. Not too difficult but just enough to keep engaged and interested.

    Excellent project. Professor Boorman always includes important coding details to improve our skills when working with different datasets. I also appreciate the help from this cutting edge technology that helps me fix any coding error. Thanks!

    A great project not gonna lie. Though there was a hiccup on my end haha! Totally got lost on a particular instruction because there are column and variable are not in a different font leaving you with no clues just the context. All in all, it is fantastic and a great challenge!

    But I wish my DataCamp learning and practicing had prepared me for such projects. There's a huge gap between completing a half-filled screen of code and tackling complex projects like NYC SAT.
