covers good amount of material and exactly what is in the outline, presented with enough detail to follow. Good walk-through of the spreadsheets helps understanding, easy to follow along and practice.
Material was very well presented. Week 3 was challenging, but taking time to print out the slides, work through them rigorously proved very helpful. I found all sections very, very informative.

Very difficult to understand the professors, and I would have wished for more demonstration on excel, rather than explanation through slides.

comparing with the operations analytics with the same instructors it's not as a good as it but at all its nice course
by Jamon F•
Pretty tough, a lot of information to cover. I like challenging material though. 3 stars because I was challenged

Reasonably good. Would like to have seen the week 4 extend into using more modern tools such as R or Python.

the first two lectures are great, but the last two come a little hurry and not illustrate very well
by Brendan C•
quiz should be unlocked. Some concepts could be explained better.
by Patrick N•
Lots of info yet lack of reinforcement in readiness for the quiz

The second lecturer only read all the text in lecture slide.
by André I•
the quizzes are not really helpful/relevant.
by Evan H•
Some concepts were hard to follow.

I do not recommend this course or the specialization. I will cite below sentences from the course and you can be the judge yourself.
*** start of cited sentences ***
if we plug in the expected values … we get fifty thousand times ninety, plus nine hundred thousand times ten, plus one hundred thousand times six, plus one hundred fifty thousand times two …….
*** end of cited sentences ***
The professor was actually reading this calculation:
500,000*90 + 900,000*10 + 100,000*6 + 150,000*2
I sat through 3 courses to realize that I should have dropped it in course 1 week 1.

The course was basic and doesn't prepare anyone with an industrial perspective. The content is not enough explanatory on why are we calculating certain numbers. Week 3 was totally unclear topic. Also, more realistic examples would have made the course better.

Although great content, I found that the week three has been more theoretical with not enough detail. I still manage some key concepts, but I would have love to understand more how to use in practice the theory.

Instructors were not very descriptive. Worst course within the specialization. Really disappointing because the topics covered would've been super useful if I completely understood them.
by Davide B•
Basically i resume of economics concepts that can be taken for granted as a prerequisite of the course
by Andrey T•
Could be more content, and quizzes are really stupid - it's just plugging in numbers!!!
by Charles C W•
Too basic for the subject matter. Didn't learn anything I didn't already know.
by Omolola C•
Week 3 was very vague and unhelpful in completing relevant quiz
by Xin C•
Not very helpful for stat major students
