Not that challenging

It started out very well, but towards the end there was inadequate intuition provided. For instance, the binomial and normal distribution done directly through functions in excel stripped away the intuition. There was a missing base to these. Overall, the examples picked out were very interesting and would capture my attention.

Extremely distracting accent and voice, can't focus at all on what is being said

The multiple choice questions in the quizzes, with their slippery, quite similar yet tricky possible answers, makes the course absolutely distracting.

Worst experience on coursera so far. Parts of the course were locked for weeks for some unknown reasons. No progress possible.
