Great course. Difficult to apprehend sometimes as the Frequentist paradigm is learned first but once you get it, it is really amazing to see the believe update in action with data.
I like this course a lot. Explanations are clear and much of the (unnecessarily heavyweight) maths is glossed over. I particularly liked the sections on Bayesian model selection.

I consider that you need to change the scope of this last course. A book or a reading material will help to better understand the concepts.
I'm conscient that Bayesian statistics is more mathematics intensive, but you should find a way to make this course friendlier for beginner students in Bayesian statistics.

I found some of the instructional videos a bit confusing. It was difficult to understand the underlying methodology of some of the concepts explained. I believe the instructors assumed the students had a more rigorous understanding of the underlying calculus than was suggested for this course.
par Artur A B•
This course might better serve the students by having more intuitive examples shared before the quiz/programming exercises. I think the topic deserves more attention (2 weeks instead of 1) or perhaps offered as part of a series of bayesian courses in a different certification.

I'm not at all confortable with bayesian statistic after completion of course with very good grade. I think course lacks a step by step explanation of some core concepts. Or maybe it should have less concepts. I ended up searching for help outside (youtube, etc).

Very different from the previous courses, this course uses the Bayesian approach to things already covered. The specialists brought in were for some, a little bit hard to follow. More activity on the forum from the organisers would also be much appreciated.
par Ashley J•
Good breadth of useful information and well intentioned lectures, but this course really needs a companion text and practice questions outside of the quizzes to reach the level of effectiveness of the other courses in the specialization.
par Guillermo U O G•
I really loved the previous courses because their reading material which was very good complimented by the video lectures, nevertheless, in this course, many of the video lectures was the repetition of the main book.
par Pedro E•
Course is much harder to follow than previous courses. Due to change of instructors, the notation used wasn't always introduced before and is not explained. Feels rushed if you hadn't previous notions of the subject.
par Sophie G•
Really hard to follow and finish, especially compared to the other classes in this specialization.
The concepts might be more complex, but the way they're taught also adds to the difficulty, in my opinion.
par Marcus V C A•
I think the content is very good, as well as the online book and the supplementary material. But the videos for Weeks 3 and 4 could be better ... In my opinion, they should be longer and more explanatory.
par Amy W•
Until the last two weeks, this course was very good. The lectures in the last couple of weeks contained lots of information and not very many examples. The third week, especially, was overwhelming.
par Shaurya J S•
Not as good as other courses in this specialization. Most of the times the focus was to teach the method of performing a Bayesian Statistical process rather than teaching the actual concept.
par Ganesh H•
I felt the course ramps up from the basics way too quickly. I didn't like the pacing in the course compared to other courses in the same specialization, although I did learn a lot.
par Luv S•
Explanations not simplified as compared to the other courses in the specialisation. Very difficult to comprehend. Instructor should take more time to explain the fundamentals.
par Jennifer g e•
I learned a lot but i think the teachers should explain with more examples, the things they explain seem very abstract and i had to look for extra help.
par Santiago S•
Se trata de explicar términos matemáticamente complejos de una manera muy general y vaga dificultando el entendimiento y el aprendizaje del tema.
par Tasmeem J M•
This course gave me a hard time. The lectures from week 3 and 4 seemed difficult, some more resources would be helpful.
par Stephanie A•
Like in all courses of this specialization, the peer assignment was a real bottle-neck in the completion of the course.
par Pauline Z•
This is certainly a good introduction. But it did not help me to be independent on bayesian statistics
The explaining for some bayesian methods are unclear, which make it harder for new learner to follow.
par Rob M•
Slides poor compared to 3 earlier modules and instructor not as engaging. However, the labs are good.
par Stefan H•
Find it hard to follow the lectures. The labs and supplement material is good though.
par Kalle K•
A useful course, but very demanding. Many of the lectures are fast-paced.
par Gustavo S B•
I would recommend to include more weeks; slow down and go deeper
par Li Z•
Some contents are just too difficult to understand fully.
