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.

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.

The course is well structured but I still prefer that students new to this must read from other sources as well to completely understand the topics.

Good and easy introductory course. Finished it in about 3 hours total - don't expect this to be the pace for the rest of the specialization, though!

Lots of information. I learned quite a lot. It was a nice and informative introduction to Data Science in all aspects technically and theoretically.

This is a mere course on installing all the necessary tools and setting your environment, so the explanations are short lived and practice is null.

Good overview, I appreciated that the course gets you set up and makes you prove it. More command line and RStudio simple exercises would be nice.

I've just started this course, that's why my rating is 4/5. But I'm very satisfied with the video lecture, and I find it very interesting so far.

Useful couple of modules for helping you get set up with R and Git/GitHub. Really doesn't require a full month to do.
The quizzes were pointless.

It was helpful for the beginners who is willing to learn data science and gained a knowledge about Github and other aspects. Thanks for Coursera

Good course that clearly explains basic R & data science concepts. Workload was very light - didn't get to practice or learn as much as I hoped.

Excellent course. I found it particularly hard in the first two weeks. Practical exercises were intense. Discussion forms really helped out.

Very good in setting up for the next courses. I would like to see more on Git though because I could have definitely understood it a bit better
