This course provides an introduction of some important concepts and tools on a very important aspect of data science: cleaning and organizing data before any analysis. A must for any data scientist.
This course is really a challenging and compulsory for any one who wants to be a data scientist or working in any sort of data. It teaches you how to make very palatable data-set fro ma messy data.
By Shashank M•
This is a very crucial part of the data science specialisation and I feel more hands-on exercises and quizzes should have been there. Small practice quizzes for testing incremental learning within a week should be there.
By Eduardo S B•
In my opinion the structure of the course is not the best. I mainly dislike the fact that some libraries, packages, etc. (e.g. MySQL) are not trivial to install.
Still I learnt quite a lot, so I wouldn't say it's bad.
By le M N•
the instructor of this course, unlike the other 1, is quite unclear about what needed to be done. a lots of the packages of the course are not up to date.
more quiz and exercise would be highly beneficial

Mediocre presentation of tidy data, which is probably the most critical topic. Otherwise, its mostly just walking through what commands to use in R to load in various file formats.
By Patti M•
This class needs more content, more explanation. It is clearly a very important aspect of Data Science, but the assignments were more complex than the given course content.
By Sheila B•
I learned a lot but my usually happy & grateful attitude was sorely challenged by the fact that so many facts in the videos and obvious course material was, well, wrong.
By James K•
Out of date material. Many links broken. Some of the functions taught are sunset. Week 2 was too surface level to do anything useful. Weeks 3 and 4 better than week 2.
By Joseph S•
This course has a very interesting subject and a concise syllabus, but is very poorly prepared. I hope coursera will pass on the message to Johns Hopkins University!
By Albert B•
Too difficult practical exercises with the theorical background given. I know that hackers skill should be used but it is too much assumption in the projects!!
By Seyed A T•
It is somehow just an extension on R Programming course, with many unnecessary details that will be forgotten in a few days after the course.
By Sergio C d F•
The video is simple and good.
But the final project and some test are too hard based on material presented.
Also staff's support are not good.
By Cintia K•
Unfortunately the course's lectures are quite outdated, so you won't pass week 1 without all the research done by yourself.
By Ruwaa I M•
I learned "ask Google" and dplyr, nothing more. Not as satisfied as with the other courses in the specialization.
By Gianluca M•
The only interesting part was dplyr. The rest was too confusing, with lots of lists and no explanations.
By Adam M•
The information in the lectures is very stale, which makes it extremely frustrating to learn from.
By DESIREE P•
Messier than the 2 previous courses. Lacks explanations for codebook in the peer-graded exam.
By Sudarshan P•
The course material needs update. There are code snippets that do not work.
By Aditya D•
This course could have been better. It was all textual and it got boring.
By James C•
Final assignment is not well detailed, and may cause confusion.
By Guy P•
This course lacks projects to implement the skills we learn.
By Lee D•
The course was a bit mixed in terms of its quality.
By Colin H•
Guidance for assessments could be a lot better
By Adam K•
Very poor instructions for assignments.
By Rafee S•
waste of time for software engineers
By Maximilian P•
Too many things in one place
