Top reviews from Advanced Linear Models for Data Science 1: Least Squares

By DLJun 8th 2016

We need more advanced, theoretical courses on Coursera, like this one, in order to deeply understand the more general courses like Regression Models and Linear Models.

By SPApr 30th 2017

Good mathematical rigour for the analysis of linear models. Builds some good intuition for the geometry of least squares which helps in model result interpretation.
