This course provides an introduction of some important concepts and tools on a very important aspect of data science: cleaning and organizing data before any analysis. A must for any data scientist.
Easy, mostly instructive Course. The Assignments and quizzes are quite good, and illustrates the lessons very well.
See the videos for general presentation, but use the energy on the excersizes.

Great course! Very well structured and complete in the knowledge it brings both on the R language itself and in the concept of data clean up and transformation.

Interesting course with a lot of time intensive quizes. It, however, opened my eyes on how to effectively work towards clean data.
Thanks for the great courses!

It was really an enriching course. I learnt a lot about the raw data formats and tools and techniques to get the best out of that raw data. Highly recommended
Very good course. By taking it you have the opportunity to build experience with R and get used with the main codes needed to perform a data cleaning process.

Excellent course. A little bit difficult if your not used to handle matrices and vectors. Perhaps a review of the concept would be good to help new learners.
by Bhargava B•
This is a major basic skill to be acquired. The course does great job at introducing various methods and makes us practice with the quizzes and assignments.
its the best course for the data science students and it will help all the student who are going to join or who want to start their career in data science.

good. however, volume of the video is very low, not audible without external speakers on some PCs. request to improvise. spoken language is also very fast.

This is a very useful course on How to use R to prepare the data you need to analyze! highly recommended for both beginner and advanced data analysts!
by Guillaume S•
Very interesting but a bit tough and time consuming with a lot of work on your own... but that's probably how you develop real life hacking behavior!
by Han C•
Assignment difficulty is good and practical, however, I took quite a while to understand the raw data structure and the purpose of the assignment.
by Cody W•
Great introduction to scraping information from internet sources and turning complicated data into something that can be visualized and processed.

A very interesting and unique course, for the kind of things it helps to learn are often ignored. It brings the breadth of the theme forward.

This was my first course with serious data gathering and manipulation. I found some of week 3 challenging, but overall enjoyed the learning.
by Xiaorong L•
Very good contents! But to be honest, the final course project is a bit too easy (I personally enjoyed it because it was not frustrating)...
