A very good and concise course that helps to understand the basics of the Data Science and its applications. The examples are very relevant and helps to understand the topic easily.
Highly educational course on the realities of data analysis. Many good tips for your own analyses as well as for managing others responsible for coherent and accurate analyses.
It was good, but the content is harder to understand in this course.
I would prefer a similar format and emphasis as the other two last courses.

The video quality and content were good. Unfortunately, there were a lot of spelling errors and grammatical mistakes in the written portions.
By Chong K M•
Very difficult and time consuming course which contains a lot of technical words and jargon. Not recommended for the average beginner.
By Jean-Michel M•
I would drop some of the cartoons. They are funny but they seem to distract Bryan and overall it's distracting for us students too.
First of all it's too tough to understand but day by day I understood something I got it ..tq.it is very helpful for my studies
By Rong-Rong C•
There is a lot of technical jargon covered which made the course more challenging than the other courses in the series.
By Alberto M B•
It wasn't as focus on Managing Data Scientists as I was expecting, but rather focus on tips for Data Scientist.
By Marco A P•
Much theorical with few examples. Could incorporate examples outside the health world as well.
By Giovany G•
I would prefer that the examples be expressed with statistical and mathematical calculations
By Gilson F•
Não gostei muito da didatica do instrutor e os slides não ajudam no entendimento
By emilio z•
Explanations in videos qere not very clear nor very well connecetd with the Quiz
By Christopher L•
Would have liked a bit more examples and math in some cases. Others were fine.
By Ioannis L•
A bit less engaging than the other parts of the Executive Data Science course.
By Patricia S•
good content but could be simplified and presented in a more focused man
By Gowtham V•
Would like to have simpler examples to understand some of the concepts.
By Amal L C•
It was quite hard with all the statistical jargon. Too much theory.
By Poon F•
This class has more useful materials than previous ones.
By Manas B•
Relevant materials, but lecture delivery is rather dry,
By Matej K•
Sometimes it was hard to understand what's going on.
The material is too long and boring.
By Weihua W•
Too short, too expensive.

Very Good Content

I found this course to be notably worse than all of the others in the series. There is very very little practical content provided within the lectures. Way too many summaries or over-views of what's to come next without really getting into the nuances of what is discussed as a course topic. Way too much repetition of the exact same content, there is even repetition of content in this course that was presented in another one of the courses in the series. Many of the examples are purely meant as a comedic aside rather than actually functioning to discuss the topic with depth. E.g. - talking about statistical modeling and putting up a picture of Ben Stiller from Zoolander - then keeping the picture up there for the entire explanation. There's literally a Nic Cage example provided for the confounding factor lecture only for the instructor to say directly after "This isn't actually the best example" - then proceeds to not explain why it was brought up aside from mentioning there's a spurious correlation. Way too much repetition of similar examples - showing photos of a muscular v. skinny Christian Bale. This pop-culturey reference isn't needed in the first place and doesn't need to be shown in triplicate. I don't mind repetition if there is additional nuance or content provided through them, but that isn't the case in this course. I find there is too much focus on side tangents, where the instructor seems to change thoughts mid-sentence but forgets to come back to the original idea. I think that every single video could be cut down by 25%, purely by being more concise, and should include more nuanced descriptions. I found it particularly odd that instrumental variables were noted as a rather clever technique, yet an explanation was intentionally avoided, however an example was still provided. Bringing up a topic, intentionally refusing to define it, then providing an example directly after just doesn't make sense. I think that more time needs to be spent refining the lectures so that they're designed to teach content. It has the feel of someone who's talking about a field to get people interested in it rather than a practical training course. Many key terms are very poorly defined with examples (on many cases the audience is referred to wikipedia for explanations) in which the basics are repetitively explained while the nuances are glossed over. There seems to be an odd theme where summaries and over-generalizations are far too frequent and yet the key terms and how they relate to examples are an afterthought. I don't think the summaries are necessary given the fact that users can literally re-watch every single video and there isn't enough total content to justify a summary in the first place. Additionally, this course also seems to deviate from the others in that there is an assumption that the student has a heavy amount of programming experience already built in (or that's my assumption since many of the term explanations aren't discussed too heavily). Prior lectures break down the basics more and indicate that potential managers should pursue the data specialization courses.
