As a business student from Bangladesh who is aspiring to be a data analyst in near future, I love this course very much. The quizzes and assessments were the places to check how much I exactly learnt.

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.

Very well narrated with needed information. Here and there some 30 sec video is repeated. Otherwise a great course to know whether its what we want to do pursue.

This was a great starter for me. I have very little experience with Data Science, especially the practical work. This provided the foundation I was looking for.

Un buen curso básico para entrar al mundo de la programación. Te enseñan a usar la plataforma de GitHub, descargar R y usar comandos en la Terminal de una Mac.

Good as a first course. Breaks up the content so that you can understand straight out of the gate if you will have an issue with the tools and software or not.

Simple straight forward. It did push me enough to be interesting but not enough to make me give up because it was over my head. Nice step-by-step instructions.

Serves as a great intro for data science (not that I'm an expert yet), and a good resource for making sure you have R and Git up and running on your computer.
