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.

Great course as it shows you the basics of what the Data Scientist needs. It is easily understood and you can review lessons after you have taken it.

Very basic, but gets you up and running with R, Git, and Github. I was self-taught, so this course was good to consolidate and refresh on the basics.

It is a nice course, week 1 is quite tough.
So i would recommend going through week 2 if you are stuck there.
Hope to see everyone make it to the end.

I am very new to programming world. It was really nice experience to begin with the tool set up and understand the basic concepts or R programming.

Very good for the people who would like to know the working of R and Git from the scratch. The articulation between them is beautifully presented .

A really interesting course, and also, basic and simple. The lectures are a little fast though. I hope I would continue this course if I have time.

Excellent course to get started. But whish I could move to other courses in parallel without having to wait for the R Programming course to finish.

It was easy to understand, though I'm not a graduate of Statistics, but because of the lessons and the technique used, I understand it. Thank you!

The course gives a good overview of the tools a data scientist will be involved with and lays the ground for the more complex courses that follow.

It's very useful course for people with no programming background. Gives a good review of Git and GitHub. Also I have processed my first commit :D

It's a very good course for beginners. If you already hace R and gihub it may be a little boring, but remembering the basics is never a bad idea.

This was a great course!
The beginning of the course was a little heavily focused to the rest of the specialization, but otherwise it was great!
