This is one of the most important course in data science specialization series, everyone should take this course very attentive way, because it give very deep insight about the role of statistics in data science.

Awesome course if you need to understand the theory behind the statistical test you keep reading in scientific articles, if you wanna get the basis with which to learn more complicated regressions models, or if you have studied statistics before and forgotten most if it !

This is exactly the course I was looking for. Great job guys!

I get that the subject matter is hard and so this isn't going to be easy to absorb regardless of how it is taught. My biggest challenge was too many overloaded sentences where to understand the new area that was being focused on there was an assumption that i already had firm grasp on the set of other subject areas referenced in the same sentence. A lot of confusion as well arising from terms that sound the same except for one word or context of their use which maybe could be helped along by a summary slide of terms and meaning at the end of each lecture or section.
