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.

Pretty basic (from a software developer perspective) but can see the utility for newcomers to programming and informatics in general!

Good, but would like a step by step walkthrough for MAC/Windows when setting up the final assignment to ensure everything is correct.

Good Introductory Class, all though I think some of the videos were too fast. Need to provide more explanation on some of the slides.

Great Insight to data science. More Professional less theoretical. Little more in-depth in R would make course perfect for beginner.

very quick course just to get your workspace set up; if you are already familiar with github or rstudio, no need to check the videos

Things got a bit hazy when it came to adding the .md file to our data science repo on GitHub. Other than that I enjoyed the course.

This is generally speaking a good course. The only problem is that the instructions are sometimes not detailed enough for beginners

A great starting. Perfect for providing a foundation. However, instead of slideshow, a few real-time videos would have been better.

An essential introduction to the rest of the specialization program, but not too much information included in the course by itself.

The introduction to Git and GitHub could have been a bit less theoretical and more practical. Overall, a good introductory course.

Ideal course to get you started for a data science specialisation. Informs about and helps you install all the required softwares.

Overall, I liked being exposed to Github and GitBash. I felt this course gave me a broad overview of what to expect in the future!

Even though the content was good, but this is more like a 2 week course. I finished it in 4 days spending on average 1 hour daily

More number of hours are given than required. Good learning for non IT field people. For people with IT background, its too easy.

A little basic, but necessary to get everything you need set up for the next classes in the series. And it does that well enough.

Good course and it's great that Coursera has designed this course separately.
Enjoying the journey of data science with Coursera.
