TOP REVIEWS FROM STATISTICS FOR DATA SCIENCE WITH PYTHON
The videos, readings, and labs were not sufficient for me to feel prepared for the assessments. I ended up using outside resources just to understand what was being presented here.
The final assignment is very well designed, I was able to review the entire course material and consolidate the learning. I have now a good understanding of hypothesis testing.
