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 really gives a good overview of tools data scientists will find useful. It can actually be completed in a very short time (less than a week) fairly easily.

I liked it a lot. It set me up to start learning R with confidence and, from not knowing anything last week to now having a basic understanding of it all is gratifying.

What a great course. For being a data scientist is not enought to know the algoritms but the correct tools to share your results, so, this course results very practical

It's a good introduction. The automated videos voice can be a little monotonous but not as bad as some professors I had in college. The lectures are well structured.

Good course with plenty of information on the Toolbox required to be a Data Scientist. Also, good for getting to know your toolbox and how to tinker around with it!

O curso me deu uma perspectiva que diversos outros não me deram, que é a quantidade de métodos estatísticos que podem ser utilizados para resolver um problema real.
by Kenichi A•
I liked the fact that only nominal numbers of tools are explained with clear reasons. So, I can trust the recommendations and spend my time on learning these tools.

Great basic information (or review) of the basics needed for data science. The short videos allowed me to break up the weekly work into easily manageable segments.
