Many other reviews have already outlined the piss-poor quality of teaching that Brian Caffo has provided, so I won't re-hash their valid complaints much. He jumps all of the place and provides no real scaffolding (interesting how much I've learned about teaching approaches in this track, due to the ineptitude of all three professors). I completed the first 5 courses with "with Distinction", but after seeing this class I'm moving on to courses on other platforms that are wildly better (Udacity has a "nanodegree" in Data Science that will be available this fall that sounds much better and the quality of their courses far surpasses Coursera). The lack of support from Coursera also leaves a lot to be desired. They tell you to take your issues to the forums. The professors for this track do not participate in the forums at all.
