Really interesting course. The interactive coding sessions with swirl are especially useful. Would be great, if you provided sample solutions for the programming assignments, in particular for week 4.
"R Programming" forces you to dive in deep.\n\nThese skills serve as a strong basis for the rest of the data science specialization.\n\nMaterial is in depth, but presented clearly. Highly recommended!

Not the best course for beginners. Too much theory and no implementation. Also the assignments were impossible for a beginner.

Not for new programmers. The lecture material is also not logically organized and does not correspond to the assignments.

R tutorials and assignments are great - however, had to spend more time figuring out Git than I spent on R assignments...

They don't give enough inputs and instructions to complete the assignments, unless they could offer addicional material.

it was too fast for me and i was expecting to study R programming from scratch..and many things were very fast.

I found the jump in difficulty for the first assignment too great. This seems to be a view reflected elsewhere.

The instructions were not satisfactory, and there is a large gap between the assignment and the skills taught.

This course was so convoluted and not practical that it made me lose complete interest in the specialization.
by Tristan I•
Fix the assignments so they match the course content. This is unfair to the people who pay for this service.

Worst not at all beginner friendly, worst course on coursera , no proper support provided for assignments
by Casey B•
This course presumes you are a programmer to begin with. I tried to take the class to learn how to program.

Assignments do not match up well with the lessons and the lessons are BAD. They are not educational.
by Rishi R•
Too much of a jump from the previous course. Exercises much too complex relative to the lessons.

You can't do assignments using the lecture materials. Need A LOT of time to finish this course.

There is a huge disconnect between the lectures and what is asked in the homework assignments.
by Juan M O•
Gap between the theory and the practical assignment is huge. For a beginner is not an option!

This course is not for beginner. If you look for beginner course for R, look else where.
Actually I feel like i'm reading the instruction manual without knowing useful skills
The assignment is too hard. There is a big gap between the assignment and the lecture
by Stéphane P•
It's good introduction, but the assignment are rather poor. Not worth paying for it
by Thomas Y•
Doesn't teach many functions that are related to how to solve the question at hand

In Lectures rate of speech is really fast and in some presentations are not clear

There is a disconnect between the video lectures and the assignments/quizzes.

Assignments not always in line with lecture.
Material is above beginner level.
by Holly N•
Extremely frustrating course - huge gaps between lectures and assignments.
