Good intro to Bayesian Statistics. Covers the basic concepts. Workload is reasonable and quizzes/exercises are helpful. Could include more exercises and additional backgroung/future reading materials.
An excellent course with some good hands on exercises in both R and excel. Not for the faint of heart mathematically speaking, assumes a competent understanding of statistics and probability going in

Herbert is clear, gives great examples, and is easy to follow. The question prompts are helpful, and the quizzes thoughtful and challenging. Great course.

Very good course for fundamentals of Bayesian statistics. Made me understand Monte Hall problem, conditional probability, etc. in a totally different way.
By Pawel R•
The course creates great foundations for digging deeper into more complex concepts and trying to run some Bayesian statistics on simple real life problems
By Mohan R•
A mathematics course I really enjoyed because the instructor was actually teaching the material as best as one could without meeting the students. Great.

Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge with the public. Now I am no more afraid to face the book 'Bayesian Data Analysis' by A. Gelman et al.

I really enjoyed this course. Dr. Lee is a really good instructor. The materials and tests are good as well and will help you during the journey.

Great course. Intermediate to advanced level (at least for me). You must have good foundation in probability. If so, you will learn a lot. Thanks

Good course about bayesian! I finally understand the relationship between frequentist idea and Bayesian approach and Beta gamma distributions
By Eben E•
This was a were educational course. I had trouble understanding R programming but with this topic, most of the programs became more clear to me.
By Cooper O•
A Fantastic course. Detailed learning materials, Lots of opportunities to test your knowledge, and difficult enough to make you learn something!
By Nitin K•
I loved everything about this course. It reminded me of my time in school. Papers and pencils. I look forward to attending the follow up course.

As a computer science student, I feel Bayesian approach is much more intuitive and more computationally friendly than the frequentist paradigm.
By Fernando D L•
It's a good course to know the principal concepts of Bayesian statistics. Also, the course has excellent examples to understand thew concepts.
By Orfeas K•
I really appreciated the content, and the way it was taught by Prof. Lee. His explanations were intuitive, without loss of mathematical rigour.
By Giovanni G•
Consistent and mathematically dense. If you want to go through every passage this course gives you solid understanding of Bayesian statistics.
By RIcardo G M•
Very good course. Concepts are very well explained, and quizzes are really helpful to apply and further
understand the explanations provided.
By Kuntal B•
Thanks, Coursera. This is a good course. It would be helpful if we get any proper class notes on Jeffrey's prior and Multivariate regression.
By Artem B•
Great course with a lot of simple, but illustrative exercises. It may be useful to have some basic prior knowledge of econometrics/statistics
By Michael W•
Great introductory course. It was challenging but doable for someone who has not take college level mathematics or statistics in a few years.
By Robert K M•
Invaluable. Excellent quizzes. A few terms could have been better defined, and a few more examples wouldn't hurt, but overall excellent.
By Damian C•
Very well presented course. Interesting and intuitive introduction into the fascinating Bayesian world.
Many thanks and congratulations!!!
By Ariel A•
Great course, it has the right proportion of theory and practice. It's a great start for anyone who wants to dive into Bayesian Analysis.
By Hari S•
Thought is a simple manner. Made complex concepts look very easy. Would surely recommend this course. Thanks Prof. Herbert Lee and team.
By Vignesh R•
Awesome course that helped me overcome the Bayesian statistics way of thinking hurdle. Now, I want to go on and learn MCMC, Metropolis !
By Qinyu X•
The course is generally great. Nonetheless, it is not recommended for those without a statistical background and knowledge of calculus.
