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.

Not useful by itself, but grudgingly necessary to get you ready for subsequent courses in the specialization.

A little more depth on R and R studio and the rest and more data driven projects would have been appreciated

Easy introduction into R, maybe a bit too slow though. Course name is a bit misleading and not informative.

The first 2 lectures (overview/introduction) are pretty good. The tools/practical material is very trivial.

Mostly preparatory material and setup activities for the rest of the series. It's OK, but not a revelation.

Could be completed in a single day but spread across 4 weeks. I could understand a week but 4 seems silly.

It was great to know new terms and tools used in data science. However, the course is mostly theoretical.

Needed a step-by-step information sheet about what R Software and Tools need to be downloaded with links.

It's only enter-level for people who don't know R. For those who already used R, it's not a good choice.

Buen tema y contenido pero muy resumido o simplificado, se debería ampliar mas la 4 semana como mínimo.

Good course for supporting the rest of the specialization. However, it has very little use on its own.

Would have loved it even more if there was an in-depth explanation of how to use GitHub using Git bash

Course is good overall, but it could be more detailed and informative which is lacking at some topics.

Needs examples and practical exercises. The videos are long and monotonus mainly because the speaker.

One Could have introduced the basics of R in this course..The course was too easy..Even for beginners

Es básico, pero cumple para empezar en el mundo de Coursera, espero mucho más del resto del programa.

The video content is great, but it tends to have zero relation to the content tested in the quizes.

Course doesn't seem to be of much use. Was not much informative. Only some information is relevant.

It was pretty good, but most of the information is rehashed briefly in the intro to R Programming

Course was good, nice introduction to data science and its branches. There was not much of depth.

Content is not found sufficient. Also order of the video series also requires some modifications

A necessary prerequisite for the other Data Science classes, but not really a standalone course.

I liked it because it helped me to configured the software that I will use in the next courses.

Good overview of existing tools but more information will be useful to dig into the data world.

I think maybe because I have computer science background, so I think this course is too easy.
