Very clear and articulate explanation of the concepts. He doesn't skip a step in the sequencing ideas, drawing comparisons and differences, and illustrating both visually and story-telling. Excellent.
Very nice course for beginner, the mathematic level is not high (around french baccalaureat) so available to everyone. I enjoyed a lot this course that show how simple math can be used in real life.
This course is helpful for a beginner like me, i.e. poor math background, the examples in the videos are helpful to understand math. Thanks!

A basic course on quantitative modeling, but provides a big picture and key concepts and models, and clearly presented - a great course.
By Mark S•
very interesting course. I am in the middle of changing my careers, and I thought this course and subsequent specialization would help
By Felix M•
Highly informative, well explained and overall fantastic learning experience. Will gladly enroll in more courses of the specialization!

A quite good introductory course in quantitative modeling. Professor Richard explains the concepts of the subject in a very clear way.
By Salman S•
The Course is very great and helful and live examples of course instructor Sir Richard Waterman are make understanding concept easily.
By Rodrigo R•
Very basic. I don't like how they don't give you solutions or the answers to the questions so you can figure out where you went wrong.
This is a great course with challenging topics. I gained more insight into modeling and the interpretation of the probability models.

There could've been a better walkthrough of the examples given; I would've liked to see more through walkthrough of each calculation.
By Mikel P•
As an engineerign student this is not very difficult as I have already taken statistics, but it is very well explained and structured
