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.

Too basic content.
I have not learned anything with this course (installing R and RStudio should not be part of exercises or lectures).
I hope R programming course will be better
by Mahesh K•
This is pure theoretical course,
It's look like a Power Point presentation. Students can not easily understand this.
I do not recommend this type of teaching on Coursera

Some interesting concepts, but way to simplistic in my opinion. Only reason I see to pay for it is the fact that it is a requirement in the Data Science Specialization

Do not take this course if you want to get a job in industry. Python now dominates industry and R is basically obsolete. I will be switching to a course in Python.
by Jonas L•
Certainly not worth paying for this course, only talks about how to install the tools.
Not able to take quizzes when you try to take the course for free.

Good introductory course. However, an overkill as a separate course (and hence charging $30 for it). Courses 1 and 2 could have been clubbed together.
by Isaac A G•
It has almost no content and isn't actually useful. I've heard later classes in the series are way tougher, so the ramp up isn't at all good.
by Chris M•
Not really enough content to be a course in it's own right, should be additional material as is useful, but definitely not a requirement.
by Attila T•
It is really basic course, I expected much more even if this is offered only for $29.. (the cheapest course in the specialisation)

I think a few people like to hear the mechanical voice. Some videos have really low resolution and it is hard to see the codes.

Eu achei o site desorganizado, não sei se concluí ou não o curso. Não sei se executei todas as tarefas ou não. Decepcionante
by Valentin D•
Completely useless. Just a number of boring videos of what you may possibly learn in Data Science Specialization.
by Francisco S•
Not worth the price. Extremely basic stuff spread very thin over too much time just to be able to charge for it.
by Gianluca M•
Useless. The information content is close to zero. Just some blah-blah and a long tutorial to install software.
by Luke S•
Way too basic for the price - almost no content - this is just setup - I resent paying for setup instructions.
by John B•
Horrible explanation regarding push and pull requests. Would not recommend this course to my friends.
by Gary N A•
Poorly organized. Poorly communicated. No reliable source of assistance with technical problems.
by Stefan S•
Would wish this course was not a requirement for specialization. Easy, and not giving anything.

An online non-credit course authorized by Johns Hopkins University and offered through
by Georgios K•
The courses are not by a real instructor/professor but are scripts read out loud by a machine.
by Tony W•
The course does not warrant the price, it has way too little information. Very dissatisfied.
by Parth G•
It's a course which is designed to preview the other courses. It could easily be eliminated
by Espen R•
This course could be summed up in one page or so. Very little content.
GitHub lessons good.

The robot voice is terrible. This needs to be fixed. I wish it was an actual person.

I finished this course in one day. It is ridiculous as it is poorly structured.
