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.
It is a very good introduction course for those who are new in data science. This gives you a list of services and software that you need to do well in data science.

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.

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.

It was so comprehensive!
Aspects I thought would not be here were and were explained so well. Was an insightful and educative entry into the specialization course.

Very useful for getting set up for a mostly-newbie. Some things could be updated but some quick Google searches or discussion forum dives solved them all for me.
by Nikita N•
The course is very clearly structured, and it provided an excellent start into the courses that follow within the specialization. Love the automated videos, too!
thanks for this course it is a good step for the start from scratch move and it will help to keep going after this start throw R Language and Data science track.

Very well narrated with needed information. Here and there some 30 sec video is repeated. Otherwise a great course to know whether its what we want to do pursue.
