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.

This was a great introduction to the tools. Just don't expect to actually do any analysis yet.

Gives you the tools you need to learn the rest of the courses, by itself is completely useless

Those tools are too basic which only helps newbies to warm up. However, it is quite detailed

A little incomplete as a standalone course. Really forces you to pay for additional courses.
