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.

Not that useful. There is no need for videos. The content can simply be presented in one single PDF in a time-saving way.

Somewhat interesting to get an idea of what can be done with Git / Github, but I don't feel prepared to actually use it.
by Anna K•
Materials are getting out of date, especially with some of Github's new features. Instruction not clear in some lessons.
by Illan W•
Lectures are ridiculously boring, especially without having any video cam component to bring stimulation to the class.
by Ashwin P•
I do not think it is worth the money as the content is really basic and installation of software can be learnt online.
by Lang Y•
Too little content. Can finish the entire course in a few hours. Could be compressed into the first week of a course

If you can install R & RStudio and sign up for Github, then you're 80% finished with this course before you start.
by Andrew T•
Basic setup of R and Git.
Prefer Treehouse's integrated workshop structure for tasks like these and/or youtube.
by Matthew W•
Extremely remedial. Not worth the time or cost on it's own, unfortunately it's required for the specialization.

Is this entire course going to be watching videos of powerpoint slideshows, wrapped in a rather buggy website?
by SAI V K•
they made this many courses as they can earn more money.I dont think this course should me taught seperately
by Andrew W•
Very, very, very basic intro. The entire 4 weeks could have (and should have) been condensed into 1 week.
by Paolo D•
I didnt learn anything about data science. I could have learned how to install all those tools by myself
by Andrew I•
There just wasn't much to this class. It's not bad information, but it could have been done in one week.
by Agustin G•
It's an extremely basic introduction... which doesn't help in much for the next session (R Programming)
by Eva-Maria B•
OK course. A brief overview, but the sequence of material isn't that well thought out in my opinion.
by Christopher W P•
VERY basic course, some of the week's assignments were simply installing software for future use...
by Anit B•
Introductory Course mostly around installation and setup for the other courses in Specializations
by Sergey I•
Maybe, I am already somehow experienced, but I think that the time I spent on that was a waste :/
by Brian F•
This course is very basic and takes nowhere near 1 month. I spent about 3 hours in total on it.
i feel that the course need more explanation .. i got really lost in the begging of the HW

This module is just enough material for 1 or 2 lectures with "How to get started" notes..
by Abhijeet S•
Course is okayish, automated voice is bit annoying and some contents are not up to date
by Mike J•
Good introduction of what is to come, but nothing too provocative or thought provoking.
