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.

This Course is a great start for the specialization. The course is designed in a very thought manner so as to help a novice understand concepts easily. Thanks!

Nice course, sets you up with the basics for R programming, and sets you up with all the tools. Basic introduction to Git makes it interesting.

Good introduction into basic data science tools and a nice starting point for the data science specialization. Yet, the certificate is a little bit overpriced.

The course is well structured, but I still feel that it lacks human touch as the documents are read out by a program. Looking forward to learning new skills.

It was excellent course. I gained new information. I believe it need's hand on practice and base information for beginners who does not have any back ground.

Overall Content was good but I'm actually disappointed by the tone of the videos by some computer voice which actually makes it more difficult to undertsand

Highly recommendable for beginners as you are going to get how to use the tools. I would recommend to go through this course before jumping to R programming

Covers all the basics. But yeah, just the very basics. Leaves a lot more to be learnt. I'm sure the upcoming courses in the specialization would be helpful

It was good - I think I would like a bit more on Github, but it gets covered in other courses. It shall have more material on the coverage of data science.

The introduction was very precise and straight to the core concepts of data science.
Please include a slide with the road map of becoming a data scientist.

Its a good basis. But i think there is a lot of information that is not relevant . Also, the materials of some questions are not mentioned in the videos.

It is good as a start for a beginner, but I do not think it is adequate to be a separate course. Much of the material can be easily addressed in one week.

It's a great course to have very basic introduction of Data Science.
In the meanwhile, also teach us how to install the necessary tool for future purpose.

Not the most engaging material, but the course does a good job of covering the fundamentals of R and GitHub and helps you download the necessary software.

Some typos in the slides need correction. Narration can be made more lively. Slides still quite classical in format and may be improved for better impact.

Good overview of Data Science, but geared more towards people who have little background in computer science. Info that *was* presented was very thorough.

It's a really good course for the absolute beginners, but for me it was quite slow. I just took this course because it is the part of the specialization.

There are a lot of info on the video. Would be good to share a copy of the slides for the Git links/instructions so we can use them as a reference later.

Basic introduction to the tools that will be adopted in the Data Science. I do hope there would be more information regarding Hadoop, Python, SQL, etc.

As it is a very technical to set everything and to start working on it but the mentor have tried to make it easy. For a beginor it can be challenging.

Informative, but course did not provide exact information needed to complete the assignment without additional research (unless that was the purpose).

Although I am vey much satisfied with this course but i felt a little low during the slides for explanation of types of data science .
Rest was superb.

Pretty light weight so far, but I certainly understand it's targeted at a broad range of people so the vanilla material is probably a chore for some.

This is a clear introductory course, but the content is not as much as expected. Compared with other coursera course, this one is like one-week pack.
