It was really insightful, coming from knowing almost nothing about statistics or experimental design, it was easy to understand while not feeling shallow. Just the right amount of information density.

This course was a good intro especially in setting all the necessary software for future courses. I suggest to read the manuals, books and other readings the profs suggest. The resources are helpful.

Very well narrated with needed information. Here and there some 30 sec video is repeated. Otherwise a great course to know whether its what we want to do pursue.

This was a great starter for me. I have very little experience with Data Science, especially the practical work. This provided the foundation I was looking for.

Un buen curso básico para entrar al mundo de la programación. Te enseñan a usar la plataforma de GitHub, descargar R y usar comandos en la Terminal de una Mac.

Good as a first course. Breaks up the content so that you can understand straight out of the gate if you will have an issue with the tools and software or not.

Simple straight forward. It did push me enough to be interesting but not enough to make me give up because it was over my head. Nice step-by-step instructions.

The first course of the Data Science Specialization is relatively easy, but reviews and puts in place everything that will be needed in the following courses.

It's the best course i have come across. If someone want to become a data analyst, this is the true platform for him/her to show what he/she is capable of.
