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.

awesome course for learning data science and R.It is really helpful for beginners who wanna start or learn data science.Recommended for anyone who knows basic programming ideas.

Not technically difficult, but very useful to see how real-world tools are used in real-life scenarios. Looking forward to blending this with the technical courses on R itself.

An excellent course about how to generate information from raw data, its an age compatible course that's help to see the future world with more real way that is based on facts.

Thank you so much Coursera for providing this course from reputed university it is honor and privilege to get these learnings it will enhance my skill and helpful in my career.

I found it very much convenient apart from Automated Video lectures. I believe teaching by prof will have much more impact on us. Indeed I liked the course.
Thank you very much.
Class was cool. I have meaning to learn how to use git, github etc. I think version control is very valuable. That is definitely the thing that I got most out of this course.
by Charan R•
This course helps to understand the usage of R with RStudio and Git integration with RStudio.
I Recommend this course to all those aspirants who are moving towards Data Science.

Everrything is good but how do I access some links in the video. The PDF files I download, also don't seem to have it. Unless it is a problem with my adobe reader - let me know

I liked very much, brought lots of information according to Data Science. Thanks! I appreciate a lot the first course and preparing myself to participate of the others courses.

Maybe a little slow if you already have some technical exposure, but pretty straight forward and easy to follow if you don't. A well balanced class in my not so humble opinion.

This course is great, mainly for people without any experience in the field as it is very basic and introductory, I'm very anxious to see how we are going to advance from here!

This course is the first step to dive into the data science course. One finds a lot of videos about how to create and use the tools to carry out the specialization. Great job!

Es una Especializacion muy importante y el manejo pedagogico y metodologico Que realizan los profesores,ayuda mucho a los que estamos iniciando en este campo del conocimiento
by Zhou C•
Great first course of the whole specialization! This basic one is very important for later study because "Grinding a chopper will not hold up the work of cutting firewood" : )
by Rian D•
Great overview to all the skills and applications we will be using later in the Data Science Specialization. It is brief but was great to get an overview of R, github, etc ...
by Garima S•
I found the course really useful. It helped me to develop a basic understanding of Data Science. I'm really looking forward to continue with the remaining courses. Thank you.
by Jan K•
Nice introduction to many basic tools and concepts that are substantial to the work of a data scientist. Also, a good start for a person encountering MOOC for the first time.
by Ayesha S•
Thorough grounding in the basics. Even a novice like me could grapple with it, even though it did not come naturally, all the information was accessible for tasks. Thank you.

In general a good course to introduce in Data Science world, but when the course introduce in R packages some things like open R Studio like administrator are not specified.
by Rosa M•
The Data Scientist's Toolbox is a quick and thorough introduction to the software needed for R programming and configuring it properly for the next class in the certificate.
by Dr. R R K•
It's quite challenging learning this course being a biotechnologist. With coursera, the concepts and skills which I learned can be directly applied to my field of research.
by Bhargava B•
This is an introductory course. This helps those who are starting from the absolute basis level, and the course does a good job with regard to getting the feel of the tools.
Great Introductory course on Data Science. Would have been better if it covered a little more. But as the first course in the specialization, it covers all the basic fields.
by Ozgur O C•
Fantastic introduction to a topic I always found daunting. Thanks to everyone involved for preparing such an informative and soft approach to a hard topic like data science.
by Jonathan L•
Very simplistic and could be covered in a handout as part of another course. Unfortunate that this is a requirement of the specialization, otherwise I would have skipped it.
