Very challenging, but good course. I've been programming in R for over a year, but there were still some things for me to pick up in this class. Assignments were a challenge, but satisfying to tackle.
Really interesting course. The interactive coding sessions with swirl are especially useful. Would be great, if you provided sample solutions for the programming assignments, in particular for week 4.

Assignments do not correspond with video lessons.
Video lessons has a lot of teorical concepts that are not usefull at all.
There's a big opportunity to enhace this course.
By Brett W•
Good content, and lots of information, but the lectures are not well associated with the assignments, which makes the assignments frustrating and difficult to complete.
By Angela L•
Difficult to follow if you are new to any type of programming. This is not a beginner's course. Best to take this course after trying Swirl, Data Camp, or Code School.
By Christopher G•
Ultra simple lectures, ultra complicated assignments. I like the idea of complicated assignments, but please update lectures to show us more complicated examples.
By Scott N•
My background is in software development, so I know a thing or two about writing code. I'm about halfway through the course, and I'm really struck by two things:
By Alejandro M C•
Programming exercises require more knowledge that the one given in the course. I did have to spend hours in outside sources to complete the assignments!!!!
By Meredith C H•
The material and practice exercises were do-able, the programming assignments were way too complicated given the depth of the material that was covered.
By Norman H•
Very poor lecture support for the assignments. So much was not covered at all during the lectures that the assignments were extremely time consuming.
By Andries L•
The course content and the assignments are too far apart. I would have learned more if it was better aligned and there were some exercise in between.
By Victoria M•
This course is not at all beginner friendly, really hard to follow the assignments and the lectures if you do not have a programming or R background.
By Yash P•
The teaching and the assignment are not on the same levels. The assignmnet contains contains concepts which are not taught in it's respective course
By Yuze Y•
The videos do not adequately prepare the students of the programming assignments.
The instructor should provide more support regarding the homework.
By Phuong A V•
The programming is quire hard. It is very difficult to apply the knowledge from the lecture videos and the book resources to finish the assignment
By Stephanie B•
The gap between the lectures and swirl, and the assignments was much too large. It was hard to transition between the lectures and the assignments
By Faraz S•
Assignments are difficult, very much coding experience required. Will recommend to subscribe courses on programminghub, codecademy and codecamp.
By Jason B•
Way too much way too fast. Not sure how I would make it better, but I felt like I was learning from googling more than from the course.
By Frank D S•
Good presentation, but the jump between course materials and assignments is too great for people that are very new to R/programming.
By Deleted A•
R is a good to know tool, but so many of these process are automated now. You can do this quite easily in XLS or SPSS in most cases.
By William L•
My review comments can be found in the surveymonkey response survey. To summarise: I would not recommend this course to others.
By Hideyuki T•
There seems logical jump from the lecture/exercise and quiz. Lots of time required to self-learn new things on other websites.
By Shanmuga P•
no detailed explanation, everything is left to Assignments
expected some more contents with programming examples in the Videos
By Steve H•
very hard if you don't have any existing skills in R and the assignments are often not connected to the content of each course
By Mercy M•
A very steep learning course for beginners, I had to take other introductory R courses on DataCamp to go through this course.
By Kevin W•
The videos were helpful, but too fast. Not a lot of time is spent on any of the functions of F. Swirl helps but not a lot.
By Shreyas A•
It's very difficult to crack weekly assignments. As examples taken while teaching the functions are not comprehensible.
