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 was a good intro especially in setting all the necessary software for future courses. I suggest to read the manuals, books and other readings the profs suggest. The resources are helpful.

Very good for the people who would like to know the working of R and Git from the scratch. The articulation between them is beautifully presented .

A really interesting course, and also, basic and simple. The lectures are a little fast though. I hope I would continue this course if I have time.

Excellent course to get started. But whish I could move to other courses in parallel without having to wait for the R Programming course to finish.

It was easy to understand, though I'm not a graduate of Statistics, but because of the lessons and the technique used, I understand it. Thank you!

The course gives a good overview of the tools a data scientist will be involved with and lays the ground for the more complex courses that follow.

It's very useful course for people with no programming background. Gives a good review of Git and GitHub. Also I have processed my first commit :D

It's a very good course for beginners. If you already hace R and gihub it may be a little boring, but remembering the basics is never a bad idea.

This is a very comprehensive course which lets you set up fundamental concept of data science before just running into any programming language.

This was a great course!
The beginning of the course was a little heavily focused to the rest of the specialization, but otherwise it was great!

Perfectly walked though, easy-to-follow, but most importantly - gave exactly what it promised: a great foundation for this certificate program.

Was a good intro to Git & Github version control through CLI. I had a faint knowledge of R, which I suppose will improve in subsequent courses.
