"R Programming" forces you to dive in deep.

These skills serve as a strong basis for the rest of the data science specialization.

Material is in depth, but presented clearly. Highly recommended!

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.

There seems logical jump from the lecture/exercise and quiz. Lots of time required to self-learn new things on other websites.

no detailed explanation, everything is left to Assignments

expected some more contents with programming examples in the Videos

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

A very steep learning course for beginners, I had to take other introductory R courses on DataCamp to go through this course.

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.

It's very difficult to crack weekly assignments. As examples taken while teaching the functions are not comprehensible.

Had potential, but exercises and quizzes do not align with content taught by professor. This is not a beginners course!

The pedology used here does not interest a learner. It seems as if the instructor is just reading through the slides.

The lecture is too general. Not a courser for beginners. But if your are not a beginner, you won't need this, so…

There's no connection between the assignments given and the lecture being taught. So many contexts are missing.

Disjointed and not cohesive. Start with the basics and build from there. The assignments are a waste of time.

Theory and online lectures are fine, assignments are not (at all) consistent with the level in the lectures.

There is a huge gap between what they teach us and what the assignments ask. Had to get a lot of extra help.

Had some good information but did not expect the course to be intermediate level for the entirety of course.

It would be really helpful if the teacher gives more examples or graphs when he explains some concepts.

It's totally difficult for me. Some of the assignments are really hard to work out for me as a novice.

Presumes having a certain baseline level of programming skills, too technical for a beginner
