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.

If you can install R & RStudio and sign up for Github, then you're 80% finished with this course before you start.

Link does not blue-highlight in the last question and confuses the graders to think that the link does not work.
por Andrew T•
Basic setup of R and Git.
Prefer Treehouse's integrated workshop structure for tasks like these and/or youtube.
por Matthew W•
Extremely remedial. Not worth the time or cost on it's own, unfortunately it's required for the specialization.
por Owen I•
Is this entire course going to be watching videos of powerpoint slideshows, wrapped in a rather buggy website?
por SAI V K•
they made this many courses as they can earn more money.I dont think this course should me taught seperately
por Andrew W•
Very, very, very basic intro. The entire 4 weeks could have (and should have) been condensed into 1 week.
por Paolo D•
I didnt learn anything about data science. I could have learned how to install all those tools by myself
por Andrew I•
There just wasn't much to this class. It's not bad information, but it could have been done in one week.
por Agustin G•
It's an extremely basic introduction... which doesn't help in much for the next session (R Programming)
por Eva-Maria B•
OK course. A brief overview, but the sequence of material isn't that well thought out in my opinion.
por Christopher W P•
VERY basic course, some of the week's assignments were simply installing software for future use...
por Anit B•
Introductory Course mostly around installation and setup for the other courses in Specializations
por Sergey I•
Maybe, I am already somehow experienced, but I think that the time I spent on that was a waste :/
por Brian F•
This course is very basic and takes nowhere near 1 month. I spent about 3 hours in total on it.
i feel that the course need more explanation .. i got really lost in the begging of the HW
por Raviprakash R S•
This module is just enough material for 1 or 2 lectures with "How to get started" notes..
por Abhijeet S•
Course is okayish, automated voice is bit annoying and some contents are not up to date
por Mike J•
Good introduction of what is to come, but nothing too provocative or thought provoking.
por Urmil T•
Automated Voice is not helpful as it doesn't let you concentrate and makes you sleepy.
por Mohamed H•
The automated voice is extremely annoying but apart from that everything is good
por Abdallah A•
The instructor is an automated speaker, it was too bad, I couldn't focus at all.
the speech is too fast to be catch up with and doesn't have much useful contents
por matthieu c•
Absolutely interesting, but a loss of time if someone already knows the basics.
