TOP REVIEWS FROM BASIC STATISTICS
This is a nice course...thanks for providing such a great content from University of Amserdam.
Please allow us to complete the course as I have to wait till the session starts for week 2 lessions.
Essential to get started with statistics and/or machine learning. Explains basics is very easy way.
It would have been amazing to have examples and exercise in python languages as well.
took the free option. It has been good so far, learning a ton. I find the videos move quickly and after watching them I had to re-read the material, overall i would recommend this course.
Only the firs week of this course, but I can already tell that it's going to be incredibly useful to me. I've learned a lot and especially love the introduction to R through datacamp!
