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.
great course with good videos and examples. Very good course for learning the basic statistics. Unfortunately the week 3 is the most misunderstanding module, nevertheless very good and understanding
Taking up this course helped me get a crystal clear understanding of the statistics concepts. I would recommend this course to anyone who is trying to learn the basic concepts of statistics. Cheers!
Videos were good, quizzes were good at assessing knowledge. Didn't like the tool for answering question in R. Would much rather they just had you install R and RStudio and complete questions there.
