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.

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!

Was a good intro to Git & Github version control through CLI. I had a faint knowledge of R, which I suppose will improve in subsequent courses.

Very helpful since it is an introduction to the tools we are going to use and does not assume you know everything before starting the course!
