Very interesting, a bit challenging but very helpful. I was having some small issues understanding some wording as it is very easy to get confused. Anyway, very useful chapter and now I'm happy I was able to finalize the whole preliminary education hoping I'm going to be accepted for the full on-line MBA.

I liked it overall.. Good examples and clearly presented content. For revising, it works great, but I'm a bit concerned about how it would be for learning new content. There's actually a lot of information presented in the feedback for WRONG answers that users don't see if they select the CORRECT answer, which may have been a guess! Easiest remedy would be to have the option to go through all the wrong answers to see the yellow feedback info boxes, before moving on to the next question.

I really think there needs to be reference material available that you can go to, to check if you're not quite clear on something. Using this format, there doesn't seem to be a way to check information while moving through the questions and examples. If you can't remember a detail, there is no way to look it up. In class, you would have a text book available to reference.

I have really enjoyed the course. It was about statistics and involved a little bit of maths, which I really enjoyed. The good thing about the Smartly course is it's bit size and I could complete in my short spare times during the work or at home, during coffee time, lunch time at work and all little bit of time that I could get, I would be able to complete a lesson and drop by drop, I could complete the foundation courses. I truly enjoyed the way and I look forward to get it going and continue to do more. Some suggestions: - Add some more data into the course to be able to be more flexible, when some part of lessons not understood completely by the students, instead of repeating the lesson, add more depth to it and add another case for example.

For those without any background of statistics, here is a good course for you. Not only you can learn the concepts here, but also practical examples on how to apply them.

It was a good refresher of stats class! However the best part was that back in the day i was focussed on the mechanics of getting the answers, but now this made practical sense

This is such a useful course! I had statistics classes both at school and in university but I keep forgetting things. This course was a great refresher. Due to its interactive nature, it made it very easy to learn everything again. And the two cases they presented were fun to work through. A great introduction to statistics!

Useful concepts that are basic tools in descriptive statistics. Enough explanations and exercises are provided which help to reinforce the concepts for beginners. One little detail is that the graphic exercises may require you to use a larger screen that the one in your mobile.

The course was interactive and fun. I liked that there was a good mix of theory and practice with examples that were relevant and easy to grasp. This made statistics 101 a lot more vivid than in a normal classroom setting!

The course was very interactive and built upon itself. The examples used were also teachable moments, so if I did not fully understand a concept by its description in the course, the examples made it clear for me.

Engaging way to present what can sometimes be every dry subject matter. The example use cases provided realistic scenarios to work through and bring the theory to life.

The One-Variable Statistics course is a great refresher. The course is easy to understand. Although it does not provide all the fundamentals in statistics, it does provide with the topics a manager must be familiar with to understand and use statistics in business to mine data.

I have studied stats for a great part of my life, but mostly 20-30 years back. This was the best explanation that left absolutely no room for misinterpretation.

Like many other commenters, I'm impressed with the content creators' ability to distill what could be complex / difficult subjects into fun, bite-sized bits. Very enjoyable. Thank you.

I studied statistics and probability from a very thin and cryptic engineering book in 1987 and a very thick business book in 1995. I, of course, had a very good memory, back then and was current enough to decipher cryptic equations. The lessons on Smartly are absolutely excellent. I though have problems with my memory, so am just taking longer over stuff that needs to be not forgotten. I read stuff, then go around for a few minutes or hours to do some work, and then return to see if I still retain it. Everything is brilliantly explained in the most terse and simple manner possible.
