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.
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.

Good starter, but could have been Week 1 of a separate class. The entire course took all of 2 hours to complete.

I thought that the course was too simple and basic. I think that it all could have been condensed into 2 weeks.

Great intro to the data science major, needs to be more detailed in my opinion in regards to the git bash part.

I would have liked if the Course content(course 1) was in more depth, but the overall experience was very good.

This course was kind of helpful. I could've used much more practice with importing data into R and with GitHub.

This is a good intro to programming so far. It feels like I'm building a solid base from which to understand R.

This is wonderful and a great course in which along with data science they thought concepts of Git and Github.

Sometimes difficult to follow along for actual programing and directions can be vague. Overall, decent intro.

Perfect for beginners. Not many problems encountered. Forums helped with any issues not covered in material.

Excellent course that provides the necessary tools for those that want to get started into the Data Science.

It gives you the basics concepts of data science. A bit impersonal the lectures but after a while you adapt.
by Rodrigo C C•
It was good enough but I think you need to be more clear in terms of Git. I still have some doubts about it.

The course introduced us to data science questions and got us to know collaborating with peers using Git Hub

Fine as a general introduction, but not a lot to it. Good explanations of how to use github and get set up.

A very good intro course but must be priced lesser when compared to the other courses in the specialization.

Some of the material could be updated even more, but in general a good intro to a data scientist's tookbox.
