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 was a good intro especially in setting all the necessary software for future courses. I suggest to read the manuals, books and other readings the profs suggest. The resources are helpful.

Content is not found sufficient. Also order of the video series also requires some modifications

A necessary prerequisite for the other Data Science classes, but not really a standalone course.

I liked it because it helped me to configured the software that I will use in the next courses.

Good overview of existing tools but more information will be useful to dig into the data world.

I think maybe because I have computer science background, so I think this course is too easy.

I don't really think that this amount of information should exist as a whole separate course.

Good overview. But it is confusing for the first class when you have no idea about the topic.

some information was interesting but in general I don't think it was crucial for learning R.

If you don't know any thing about data science, good introduction, otherwise a wast of time.

A very simple course, focussed on installing the correct tools on your computer to learn R.

Too little material for 4 weeks. All this could've been written in a PDF instead of videos.

Overall the course content is good, but the power points are not engaging and interactive.

Very basic, may be a bit more use cases on Git would have been useful. But that's just me

Few content for an entire course. I think this one could be together with R Programming.

I am aware that this is the introduction to this topic but it was a bit long-drawn-out.

A good intro to the tools, but for anyone with prior programming experience unnecessary

Okayish course. This course will give you an introduction in RStudio and Data Science.

I think the project became very confusing since no examples were done in the lectures!

Pretty simple, the Univ of Michigan Data Science with Python set the bar pretty high.

Good starter setup. Looking forward to the technical portion of the Specialization.
