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 Primer for what Data Science is about. It also provides the infrastructure of tools needed. This was what I was after, a way to provide other data scientist hardware and infrastructure support.

Lots of very general review information, not much new stuff. Did force me to start getting familiar with gitHub.

Super basic and boring stuff. Mostly talks about R Studio and GIT. Not of much help to those with IT experience.

the voice is too low and the level of instructing are not for beginners, but with a lot of effort you could pass

Very introductive. I hoped more about this course. There are interesting stuff but I'd rather more work volume.

Github exposition is a little complicated. I believe it could be more detailed. But the rest is very well done!

Doing this course first doesn t make you anticipate how difficult could this speciality in the next courses :p

There is practically nothing in this course to learn. It can be termed as a introduction to the specialization

The course is too easy to be called a course. Just an easy intro, which you can complete in a couple of days.

Very short, easy and introductory course. Gives a nice high altitude overview of the subject but little else.

Not useful by itself, but grudgingly necessary to get you ready for subsequent courses in the specialization.

A little more depth on R and R studio and the rest and more data driven projects would have been appreciated

Easy introduction into R, maybe a bit too slow though. Course name is a bit misleading and not informative.

The first 2 lectures (overview/introduction) are pretty good. The tools/practical material is very trivial.

Mostly preparatory material and setup activities for the rest of the series. It's OK, but not a revelation.

Could be completed in a single day but spread across 4 weeks. I could understand a week but 4 seems silly.

It was great to know new terms and tools used in data science. However, the course is mostly theoretical.

Needed a step-by-step information sheet about what R Software and Tools need to be downloaded with links.

It's only enter-level for people who don't know R. For those who already used R, it's not a good choice.

Buen tema y contenido pero muy resumido o simplificado, se debería ampliar mas la 4 semana como mínimo.

Good course for supporting the rest of the specialization. However, it has very little use on its own.

Would have loved it even more if there was an in-depth explanation of how to use GitHub using Git bash

Course is good overall, but it could be more detailed and informative which is lacking at some topics.

One Could have introduced the basics of R in this course..The course was too easy..Even for beginners

Es básico, pero cumple para empezar en el mundo de Coursera, espero mucho más del resto del programa.

The video content is great, but it tends to have zero relation to the content tested in the quizes.
