I needed to build my statistics background from scratch. I took this course among several other courses in Statistics and data science. The good things are: \- I like the direct link between the concepts and the applications. Also the concepts aren't advanced, but it truly gave me a very different understanding of statistics in general. On the bad things: \- I really wished the course to be more deeper in the different concepts of statistics. \- The slides are really messy, can't be used for reading or as a reference.

The keyword for this course is "Application". This is my first MOOC and the main difference from other courses is there is no detailed notes given. One is expected to have basic knowledge of statistics and is expected to apply what you have learned in a particular scenario. I think this course deserves three stars or more, as it trains you to think and to apply, rather than mere memorizing.

I finished it with 99% but I do not remember what it was about. If I can't remember what it was about half a year ago - it probably is neither interesting not useful. (BS in Computer Science)

Scott is pretty messy with this one. Blink and you'll see the screen/slide full of doodles. haha. That is what I hate about it. But the instruction/explanation was clear and the cases are intuitive. (smoking). The statistics used can be forgotten easily if you don't practice and write is down. There was one week that I just went straight to the quiz after the lectures without the self-explanation/brain storming of the lecture and I end up almost zeroing the test. Good thing there is a second attempt and I took it slowly. There were exercises before the graded quiz and to be frank the ungraded exercises are harder than the quiz. The quizzes are relatively simple, which is ok because what is important, I guess, is you understand the concept, over sorting the data on paper! (I hate that part too.) Good overall. Could be better. More finesse and some video editing wouldn't hurt.
