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.

It gives you the basics concepts of data science. A bit impersonal the lectures but after a while you adapt.
By Rodrigo A C C•
It was good enough but I think you need to be more clear in terms of Git. I still have some doubts about it.
