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!

"R Programming" forces you to dive in deep.\n\nThese skills serve as a strong basis for the rest of the data science specialization.\n\nMaterial is in depth, but presented clearly. Highly recommended!

Great courses design, assignments are much harder than things taught in video. The swirl lesson, though not required, is quite helpful.

This was an interesting course, but I would suggest to change (slightly) the format of the lectures. Supporting with more example.
