Course was a great overview of the theory behind a wide range of models. The theory gives a good intuition about what the models are doing and how best to make use of them. My effectiveness has improved, even using models I thought I was very familiar with. The lecturer was excellent and did a good job of communicating difficult concepts well. The course isn't easy. You need a strong mathematical background and a decent amount of time to get through it properly. Many of the students who had done other similar courses commented it was at a much higher level than most. The course is far more theoretical than practical, which for me was perfect as I get the practical side in my work . There was no info on things like categorical variables, dummies or dealing with outliers for example. There are projects though they are usually done on generated data. Thanks very much to EDX and Prof. Paisley.
