"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.

Gap between the theory and the practical assignment is huge. For a beginner is not an option!

This is not a beginner course. Much too high level for someone with no coding experience.
