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.
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.

This is generally speaking a good course. The only problem is that the instructions are sometimes not detailed enough for beginners

A great starting. Perfect for providing a foundation. However, instead of slideshow, a few real-time videos would have been better.
This course has given me a basic knowledge of different tools and statistical techniques that data scientist use to play with data.

An essential introduction to the rest of the specialization program, but not too much information included in the course by itself.
By Katherine H•
This was a great course to get set-up and an initial introduction to all the important programs and software that interact with R.
By Ansh M•
The introduction to Git and GitHub could have been a bit less theoretical and more practical. Overall, a good introductory course.
I hope the content of this course would cover more materials during lecture. But overall, I am very happy with this course so far.
By Ritu T•
Ideal course to get you started for a data science specialisation. Informs about and helps you install all the required softwares.
Overall, I liked being exposed to Github and GitBash. I felt this course gave me a broad overview of what to expect in the future!

Even though the content was good, but this is more like a 2 week course. I finished it in 4 days spending on average 1 hour daily

If you are completely new to Data Science, then this is very good course to start with. All the basics are explained very nicely.
By Marco A R•
Me pareció un buen curso introductorio donde conoces herramientas que se supone te ayudaran en tu carera como científico de datos

More number of hours are given than required. Good learning for non IT field people. For people with IT background, its too easy.

A little basic, but necessary to get everything you need set up for the next classes in the series. And it does that well enough.
By Surya P T•
Good course and it's great that Coursera has designed this course separately.
Enjoying the journey of data science with Coursera.

Would have bee nice if it included a bit more "in Git" tutorials, but that is easily figured out when left to one's own devices.
By Nica P•
Great introduction to Data Science and useful tools. The AI voice took some time to get used to, but overall a good experience.
By Ivan A•
The course provides a good theoretical basis to get into data science and it is also very practical to link github with Rstudio
By Elvis M M•
The introductory course is very helpful. Getting to know the use of Git and GitHub is very appealing and will be of importance.
By Martín S•
Excelent, very clear. I only have problems with some changes in the versions of the programs. But fortunately I could solve it.
By A B C•
Great content for beginners, who actually need a start about what data science is all about and where it is used all around us.
By debashis r•
Its a good course those who prefer to study online.It gives a basic knowledge about the data tools which are going to be used.
By Fabiana G•
I enjoyed the course - I wish there were more exercises, but hopefully they'll come in the next courses of this specialization.
By Matthew G•
It covers some basics, but doesn't go deep into anything. Definitely take the other courses in the specialization to go deeper.
Good courses and necessary for people like me who never have a relation to computer science,,, But it is a waste of money...lol
