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.

Includes very basic stuff like setting up a github account, installing software etc: so I guess that's great if thats' not something you've done a lot.

Really good, with basis for the next steps in statistics. For me the most interesting thing is the Github software and it functions and possibilities.

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.

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.
