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.
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.

$40 is way too much to spend just to learn how to install a couple pieces of software and sign up for a GitHub account. The entire course should have been the first week of the following course.

Is this a real course for a data scientist just installing shit and a peer reviewing for that screenshot and forking all repos ...very bad not worth to be with rest course in specialization

Good time of day! This course is great! But I can't finish it as I missed deadlines and can't switch session!!! I missed 1 month already because of this bug:(
It's so frustrating...

Me inscribí en el curso y solicité una ayuda económica porqué supuestamente se dictaba en castellano. Pero esto no es cierto y no puedo avanzar. Por eso mi calificación en baja.

Too basic content.
I have not learned anything with this course (installing R and RStudio should not be part of exercises or lectures).
I hope R programming course will be better
por Mahesh K•
This is pure theoretical course,
It's look like a Power Point presentation. Students can not easily understand this.
I do not recommend this type of teaching on Coursera
por Joao P P•
Some interesting concepts, but way to simplistic in my opinion. Only reason I see to pay for it is the fact that it is a requirement in the Data Science Specialization

Do not take this course if you want to get a job in industry. Python now dominates industry and R is basically obsolete. I will be switching to a course in Python.
por Jonas L•
Certainly not worth paying for this course, only talks about how to install the tools.
Not able to take quizzes when you try to take the course for free.

Good introductory course. However, an overkill as a separate course (and hence charging $30 for it). Courses 1 and 2 could have been clubbed together.
por Isaac A G•
It has almost no content and isn't actually useful. I've heard later classes in the series are way tougher, so the ramp up isn't at all good.
por Chris M•
Not really enough content to be a course in it's own right, should be additional material as is useful, but definitely not a requirement.
por Attila T•
It is really basic course, I expected much more even if this is offered only for $29.. (the cheapest course in the specialisation)

I think a few people like to hear the mechanical voice. Some videos have really low resolution and it is hard to see the codes.

Eu achei o site desorganizado, não sei se concluí ou não o curso. Não sei se executei todas as tarefas ou não. Decepcionante
por Valentin D•
Completely useless. Just a number of boring videos of what you may possibly learn in Data Science Specialization.
por Francisco S•
Not worth the price. Extremely basic stuff spread very thin over too much time just to be able to charge for it.
por Gianluca M•
Useless. The information content is close to zero. Just some blah-blah and a long tutorial to install software.
por Luke S•
Way too basic for the price - almost no content - this is just setup - I resent paying for setup instructions.
por John B•
Horrible explanation regarding push and pull requests. Would not recommend this course to my friends.
por Gary N A•
Poorly organized. Poorly communicated. No reliable source of assistance with technical problems.
por Stefan S•
Would wish this course was not a requirement for specialization. Easy, and not giving anything.
por Omar A•
An online non-credit course authorized by Johns Hopkins University and offered through
por Georgios K•
The courses are not by a real instructor/professor but are scripts read out loud by a machine.
por Tony W•
The course does not warrant the price, it has way too little information. Very dissatisfied.
