As a business student from Bangladesh who is aspiring to be a data analyst in near future, I love this course very much. The quizzes and assessments were the places to check how much I exactly learnt.
It was really insightful, coming from knowing almost nothing about statistics or experimental design, it was easy to understand while not feeling shallow. Just the right amount of information density.

Had a Great Day after getting the Certificate on COURSERA. Another perk in my Resume.
A very good introducton to the tools, but the GitHub tutorials could use few updates.
The course is helpful, and material is well receivable. But not a fan to robot voice.
