Nice course I really enjoyed it.

To put my feedback into the right perspective: This was the first time I have been exposed to linear and generalized linear regression. It was impossible to accomplish this course within 4 weeks. I have discovered so much information and knowledge; I just needed additional time to understand, apply the knowledge and bring the pieces together. Today I have the feeling that I have understood most of the concepts. There are still some corners I haven't looked. My point is that this course is great, if you really want to get into it.

The peer reviews weren't very helpful, because I am not sure if the reviewer really understand what they are doing (same counts for me). I got this feeling out of the projects I have reviewed, I haven't seen one good work. So, I am not sure whether blind people are showing blind people the way.

Great Course

Excellent course, highly recommendable!
