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.

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.

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.

Great introduction to Data Science and useful tools. The AI voice took some time to get used to, but overall a good experience.

The course provides a good theoretical basis to get into data science and it is also very practical to link github with Rstudio

The introductory course is very helpful. Getting to know the use of Git and GitHub is very appealing and will be of importance.

Excelent, very clear. I only have problems with some changes in the versions of the programs. But fortunately I could solve it.

Great content for beginners, who actually need a start about what data science is all about and where it is used all around us.

I enjoyed the course - I wish there were more exercises, but hopefully they'll come in the next courses of this specialization.

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

Very mechanical in nature. Worth doing though as it provides essential building blocks for the remainder of the specialisation.

Very basic information but it does walk you through things quickly and clearly. The final project could use a little proofing.

The course is well structured and it covers various concepts, but I think it could be enhanced with more practical activities.

The course is helpful to understand the basics of data analysis, big data, etc. more focus should be given to assignments in R

Great course! However, the manuscript for module 4 is missing. Please fix as soon as possible to improve quality of lectures.

The content is amazing and easy to understand for the new student. However, the assignment question/instruction is confusing.

This is a short term starter for those willing to indulge in the world of data science. The course is crisp and to the point.

It's too easy for 1 month course.
Make it harder and make it shorter. Perhaps combine intro to R programming and this course?

Great course to get you setup - don't expect to learn anything besides getting the correct software and file sharing profile.

Good overall. It would have been helpful to have more context or examples for the modules on version control and R Markdown.

Great course that allows an introduction into the world of the data scientist. Some instructional videos could be improved.
