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!
Ultra simple lectures, ultra complicated assignments. I like the idea of complicated assignments, but please update lectures to show us more complicated examples.

My background is in software development, so I know a thing or two about writing code. I'm about halfway through the course, and I'm really struck by two things:
por Alejandro M C•
Programming exercises require more knowledge that the one given in the course. I did have to spend hours in outside sources to complete the assignments!!!!
por Meredith C H•
The material and practice exercises were do-able, the programming assignments were way too complicated given the depth of the material that was covered.
por Norman H•
Very poor lecture support for the assignments. So much was not covered at all during the lectures that the assignments were extremely time consuming.
por Andries L•
The course content and the assignments are too far apart. I would have learned more if it was better aligned and there were some exercise in between.
por Victoria M•
This course is not at all beginner friendly, really hard to follow the assignments and the lectures if you do not have a programming or R background.
por Yash P•
The teaching and the assignment are not on the same levels. The assignmnet contains contains concepts which are not taught in it's respective course
por Yuze Y•
The videos do not adequately prepare the students of the programming assignments.
The instructor should provide more support regarding the homework.
por Phuong A V•
The programming is quire hard. It is very difficult to apply the knowledge from the lecture videos and the book resources to finish the assignment
por Stephanie B•
The gap between the lectures and swirl, and the assignments was much too large. It was hard to transition between the lectures and the assignments
por Faraz S•
Assignments are difficult, very much coding experience required. Will recommend to subscribe courses on programminghub, codecademy and codecamp.
por Jason B•
Way too much way too fast. Not sure how I would make it better, but I felt like I was learning from googling more than from the course.
por Frank D S•
Good presentation, but the jump between course materials and assignments is too great for people that are very new to R/programming.
por Deleted A•
R is a good to know tool, but so many of these process are automated now. You can do this quite easily in XLS or SPSS in most cases.
por William L•
My review comments can be found in the surveymonkey response survey. To summarise: I would not recommend this course to others.
por Hideyuki T•
There seems logical jump from the lecture/exercise and quiz. Lots of time required to self-learn new things on other websites.
por Shanmuga P•
no detailed explanation, everything is left to Assignments
expected some more contents with programming examples in the Videos
por Steve H•
very hard if you don't have any existing skills in R and the assignments are often not connected to the content of each course
por Mercy M•
A very steep learning course for beginners, I had to take other introductory R courses on DataCamp to go through this course.
por Kevin W•
The videos were helpful, but too fast. Not a lot of time is spent on any of the functions of F. Swirl helps but not a lot.
por Shreyas A•
It's very difficult to crack weekly assignments. As examples taken while teaching the functions are not comprehensible.
por Michael P•
Had potential, but exercises and quizzes do not align with content taught by professor. This is not a beginners course!
por Karanvir S•
The pedology used here does not interest a learner. It seems as if the instructor is just reading through the slides.
The lecture is too general. Not a courser for beginners. But if your are not a beginner, you won't need this, so…
