This course provides an introduction of some important concepts and tools on a very important aspect of data science: cleaning and organizing data before any analysis. A must for any data scientist.
Easy, mostly instructive Course. The Assignments and quizzes are quite good, and illustrates the lessons very well.\n\nSee the videos for general presentation, but use the energy on the excersizes.

good. however, volume of the video is very low, not audible without external speakers on some PCs. request to improvise. spoken language is also very fast.

This is a very useful course on How to use R to prepare the data you need to analyze! highly recommended for both beginner and advanced data analysts!
par Guillaume S•
Very interesting but a bit tough and time consuming with a lot of work on your own... but that's probably how you develop real life hacking behavior!
par Han C•
Assignment difficulty is good and practical, however, I took quite a while to understand the raw data structure and the purpose of the assignment.

Great introduction to scraping information from internet sources and turning complicated data into something that can be visualized and processed.

A very interesting and unique course, for the kind of things it helps to learn are often ignored. It brings the breadth of the theme forward.

This was my first course with serious data gathering and manipulation. I found some of week 3 challenging, but overall enjoyed the learning.
par Xiaorong L•
Very good contents! But to be honest, the final course project is a bit too easy (I personally enjoyed it because it was not frustrating)...
par Daniel S•
Very informative and useful! You learn a lot specially through the (last) assignment(s)! Very happy with the course, materials and subjects.
