I found this course really useful. It actually made you do work and it wasn't necessarily easy to pass the end of module content, which I feel made the course so much more valuable. Highly recommend.
I am glad to learn a lot of terms in statistics and how to use and interpret them in the context of Public Health researches. The Instructor provided enough examples to understand the lessons better.

Good course. But some of the questions are not understandable. And some of the calcualtions were not described detail.

Good course, would be great if typos/errors especially in week 4 quiz and final course quiz were corrected.
This was a pretty great course. I do not know why I bothered with getting a Masters degree honestly.

ONLY THE LECTURE MATERIALS ARE NOT ENOUGH TO ANSWER THE QUESTIONS IN GRADED QUIZZES.

I am forced to give a 3 star rating to this course even with its quality content because of the poor execution.
Main problem with this course is the execution. There are many videos going over 20 minute mark. Not a single quiz, graded or practice, will give you the explanation, I have taken other courses from John Hopkins too, this was the first time I was having this issue. Many times the faculty will move the mic leading to a distorted voice. Many times the slides will be just plain and boring. Many times I wondered should I continue the course or not. But disregarding the execution, its 5 star content helped me a lot.
On a side note, take another statistics course before coming here. Faculty is one of PHDs who will keep on saying jargons to make him sound smart, even if it was not his intention, leading to the confusion many times. He even said about statistical inference and other high level topics in the first week. I highly doubt that a beginner can properly understand what he even meant to say as there is not even a glossary for this course.
In summary: 5 Star Content, 2 Star execution. Final score: 3 Star, a great course marred by poor execution.

The lecturer is great. I recommend that you don't take the course for free as there is paucity of exercises - disappointing.
