Wonderful course, the kind that makes you excited about a subject. Dr Abdey is a great lecturer. Sometimes the contents in quizzes isn't quite formatted right, but otherwise no complaints.

Challenging but after some consolidation I found it highly interesting. Will definitely continue my studies into probability and statistics due to the excellent teaching by Dr. Abdey!

I think this course does provide a broad overview of statistics, which helped me get my feet wet. I think it may have been helpful for students that need learning visuals to have more of the diagrams and equations on the screen longer. It would also be helpful for those who have less experience in the field to have a definitions list provided for all of the symbols used. This would have been a useful study guide. Also, there are some quiz questions that have equations that are quite difficult to decipher because they were typed from the keyboard. I think it would be helpful for students to use the same equation imagery used in the video presentations for the quiz question equations.

Great course for a beginner probability course. The ONLY downfall is that your grade and the rate at which you finish this course depends upon peers reviewing two assignments. When iI went to review peers for the same assignment their work had been over two months old. I am taking this class for admission to a master's program and expected to finish that day. After over 12 hours of work, I completed all of the coursework, but have to wait on the peer review and have no idea what will happen when the course deadline is up and the peers still haven't reviewed my assignment.

It was ok. It was an introductory statistics course. I thought it was going to be more probabilitybased. The formatting was all over the place in the quizzes and the lectures weren't very engaging  I know this is hard for a statistics class, but I've seen it done. I was kind of let down from this course to be honest, but it did give a nice overview for people unfamiliar with the topic.

In an introductory statistics course, there was no need of discussing the Monty Hall Problem, Decision Tree Analysis, Monte Carlo Simulation etc. Time saved by foregoing these could have been utilised for incorporating some mathematical rigour. Without math anyone's undertanding of statistics and its usability will always be restricted.
The PDF notes were a good thig to use in a MOOC.

The subject was interesting and he did brought new topics which i liked but it was a bit draggy at times which made me to loose attention. Overall i liked it  especially the Monty Hall problem formulation and Bayesian update. The topic on pvalue is still muddy for me.

I found this course a little bit boring. Sorry for such feedback. It took me a lot of time to complete. Maybe statistics is boring, maybe tutor, maybe I am dummy in probability and statistics. I do not know!

last week's content was too short. It will be great if one more week is added to the course where the students can learn more about decision trees, linear modeling, and regression.

Sometimes interesting, but in most cases the presentation of material is monotonous and boring. Reading materials are hard to understand

The Professor can't get to the point easily and he's clicking his tongue all the time, it's unbearable for people with misophonia.

Nice overall introduction to statistics, but suffers from bad grading mecanism when perofrming peer graded assignments.

Assignments are too simple and are not in the proper readable format. Videos lack animation and are mostly wordy.

The lectures and lecture notes are pretty good, but they lack pretty much any derivations. The weekly homework is trivial  just look through your notes and find the correct definition which was asked for, it's multiple choice. You don't have to do any calculations. That last sentence is literally correct. There are two peer graded assignments where you have to do some simple calculations, but they are very simple. I can't overemphasize how simple they are.
If you haven't take a real class in stats then you will see a lot of cool things and learn next to nothing. If you have taken a class in stats then this is an easy trip down memory lane.
In order to learn math you have to do math. There are no good homework problems.

This is my third Coursera course and the first which I did not enjoy. Many issues with being able to read the formulae in the quizzes and assignments. These were displayed bizarely and not the same as the video lectures nor the course notes. This is difficult information for many people to understand so consistency is key. In addition, I have not seen one response from a moderator (other courses had moderators responding to questions). In any type of math, stats courses it is imperative to have moderators helping students to ensure misinformation is not learned from student to student learning.

The selection of topics covered is great, the lectures pretty good and the difficulty level reasonable, but the execution is incredibly shoddy/sloppy. Typofilled lecture transcripts, unreadable quiz questions (because mathematical symbols didn't render properly), and unclear assignment instructions. One gets the impression that they put the course up online a while back and then pretty much forgot about it

In week 3, the quiz is improperly formatted. A bunch of us students have commented on this in the discussion boards with no resolution.

Very formalistic with not much explanations about the formulas. It get too complicated very fast.

much lower level than expected. nice course for people who've not done alevel stats.
