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.

If you can install R & RStudio and sign up for Github, then you're 80% finished with this course before you start.

Link does not blue-highlight in the last question and confuses the graders to think that the link does not work.

I don't like the new way of presenting online course. The voice is very artificial which makes me less engaged.

Basic setup of R and Git.
Prefer Treehouse's integrated workshop structure for tasks like these and/or youtube.

Extremely remedial. Not worth the time or cost on it's own, unfortunately it's required for the specialization.

Is this entire course going to be watching videos of powerpoint slideshows, wrapped in a rather buggy website?

Very, very, very basic intro. The entire 4 weeks could have (and should have) been condensed into 1 week.

I didnt learn anything about data science. I could have learned how to install all those tools by myself

There just wasn't much to this class. It's not bad information, but it could have been done in one week.

It's an extremely basic introduction... which doesn't help in much for the next session (R Programming)

OK course. A brief overview, but the sequence of material isn't that well thought out in my opinion.

VERY basic course, some of the week's assignments were simply installing software for future use...

Maybe, I am already somehow experienced, but I think that the time I spent on that was a waste :/

This course is very basic and takes nowhere near 1 month. I spent about 3 hours in total on it.

This module is just enough material for 1 or 2 lectures with "How to get started" notes..

Automated Voice is not helpful as it doesn't let you concentrate and makes you sleepy.

The instructor is an automated speaker, it was too bad, I couldn't focus at all.

the speech is too fast to be catch up with and doesn't have much useful contents

Absolutely interesting, but a loss of time if someone already knows the basics.
