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.

Great Primer for what Data Science is about. It also provides the infrastructure of tools needed. This was what I was after, a way to provide other data scientist hardware and infrastructure support.

Great intro. Having no coding background, this was still a good blend of being shown the basics but still having to figure out a few tiny things on my own.

A good intro course - however, it's up to one's own initiative to work independently in order to test out what you've learned from the video lectures.

I have read the books, they are free and very informative.
Just 40mins in Coursera are equal to more than 5 hours (2 classes) in "brick-mortar" class.
