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.

Great course! I would recommend compressing the audio on the video presentations so it's easier to hear and more consistent in volume level.

Everything was perfect except the Git and Github part. It was confusing. I ended up not using what it has teached me to pass the final exam

I knew most of the material in this course already, but I thought it was a good introduction to some of the tools that data scientists use.

The automated voice of the lectures is dehumanized. It is less productive and focusing learning from a machine, but the material was good.

I wish the instructors can be more clear with the Git and Github part. I still don't fully understand how to use Github for various tasks.

Good crash course on setting up all the toolbox necessary for a data scientist. The quiz could be more difficult than it is designed now.

In the course they use some tools' older versions and, for example, some Git commands shown on video are different in newer Git versions.

Простейший базовый курс, не требующий никакой предварительной подготовки и минимум усилий. Указано 4 недели, по сути проходится за день.

This was a very professionally done course. It is *very* introductory, which is either good or bad, depending on how you feel about it.

it introduces the basic tools that are frequently used in data science. However, it is rather baisc and the course did not go in depth.

I didn't like the computerized voice. The computer spoke a bit too fast and mispronounced some words. Certain sections went too fast.

Overall the course is very good. However, I feel that a little more on statistics foundation would have added more value to the course.

While this course is introductory to a specialization, I believe there is more curriculum that should have been covered in this course.

Helpful set-up course. Not too meaty & definitely didn't take 4 weeks but smart to have everything set up before diggin into the rest.

Good beginner's course to start learning advance topics like R programming, etc. Very useful tools such as Git-hub were taught simply.

Very basic stuff - if you've ever done any coding before & have even a rudimentary knowledge of Git/Github - you can skip this course.
