Excellent course! I already knew a lot about R - but this class helped me solidify what I already knew, taught me lots of new tricks, and now I have a certificate that says I know `something' about R!

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.

Informative course with interactive practice questions, but it would be great if more hints/ help were given with syntax and extracting data

Nice and challenging! Thanks so far.

The assignments are somewhat hard, but not too hard. Forced me to sit down and think.

That's very good.

I've learned much about R Programming, and feel I have a solid base and am now far more comfortable to explore more within this application.

in conjunction with swirl this is a comprehensive starter kit for R. I already have some tools I can use in work (when they let me have it!)

Programming in R is different from programming in C and similar languages. After this course it is much easier to understand Python Pandas.

Los proyectos son muy duros y muy diferentes a lo que se presenta en los vídeos. Pero esa exigencia hace que se disfruten las actividades.

As the title suggests it is about programming in R. Not a lot of stress on all the built in functions, useful libraries, or plotting data.

The course progressed very rapidly. Only the basics of R programming were covered in the videos, but then the assignments were SUPER hard!

A very good course and discussion board is the greatest help where you got directions to which area you need to explore to find answers.

I feel this course should be called "Base R Programming" since tidyverse is becoming the new standard for R programming in data science.

Excellent introduction to R. I really liked the "swirl" interactive portion of the course. The coding assignments were very good also.

Learned many things and many R tricks from this course. Discussed interesting topics I wouldn't have found or thought to search myself.

The format of this course, especially the assignments, forces you to go beyond the normal "memorize, regurgitate" ... loved the format.
