It was a great introductory course, and both the instructors were just awesome. Added advantage is you will learn basics of R as well.

I did not take the course officially. I watched some videos.but I am going to take it as soon as it will be open again. I really love this course.It was amazing and the content was stated intuitively (really making sense of data) which I really admired. The only drawback was that on the beginning weeks it was too easy and this was a little irritating. This was the course I learned R from and I am sure I will use both course contents and R over and over again.

This course was awesome. The instructors throughout the course made an attempt to make participants understand and derive conclusions rather than stressing on just the calculations and math involved. At the end of the course, you will surely feel like exploring more about the subject. Also, Allison and Jeff are the most passionate teachers one will ever come across.

Very nice course. Exactly what is advertised. This course is not designed for mathematicians but for People who want to apply statistics in a sound manner. You should not be afraid of equations though. Nice teachers, well prepared lectures. The exercises are not too hard, but you not a significant amout of scores to get your accomplishment. Very motivating. Work load depends on the phase, i.e. peer assignments require more time than introductory parts.

Too much material is presented. Everything remains a bit vague, is not worked out mathematically. The teachers are not really engaging.
