An introduction to the a wide ranging data analytic techniques. Very well done. Plenty of application cases. Lots of exercises. \----------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------

Tedious .... to the point of being boring. If only the instructor would move at a faster pace. \----------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------

Coursera might not be as polished as EdX but it has some good courses. This one which is the grand daddy of all of those is no exception. Very engaging and interesting - even if you are not a programmer.

I had great hopes from this course. However found that the content and style of this course was no different from the journalists that the instructor so despises. In fact Ghemawat comes across as petty and combative and not 'academic' as he likes to describe himself. What I also found ludicrous was the fact he failed to factor in geography in comparisons. Dissapointing

When compared to all the courses available online, this one is just poorly presented - content as well as production properties. It is OK if you have a lot of time and no other option - neither is likely to true for most people.
