I knew a lot about probability before starting this course, but I didn't know much of anything about frequentist statistics. This course helped me understand some tricky concepts.
Brian Caffo is the best statistics teacher I have ever had. I like how he breaks down things and he covers the ways to think about statistics far beyond any course I have taken.

It's a really good, well-paced course.

Unfortunately, I expected it more interesting, with more pictures and explanations, which you can easily to remember. But finally that was completely the same course as in any technical University: formula and minima of pictures, some formulas are written by words, for example.
I was watching the Youtube videos to finish the course, that was much more comfortable and interesting. The teacher knows the subject, for sure. But the reason, why people buy the course is to get better presented information and more available explanation.
I have understood everything, but haven't found something special in the lectures, just boring explanation of things which can be presented much more interesting, 'couse that is biostatistics, medicine etc.

notations are not accurate, for example
log is NOT ln
Sometimes brackets are missing and that changes completely the result.
Maths is about rigour and I see little rigour in this course.
I also regret that so few proofs are given

The material and presentation are at the highest level, but the course is lacking real life examples, and contexts.

Not the best. Presumes a lot of knowledge that people probably don't have, even people in the field. Professor's communication style was pretty indirect and lectures were somewhat confusing and hard to follow.
