As a business student from Bangladesh who is aspiring to be a data analyst in near future, I love this course very much. The quizzes and assessments were the places to check how much I exactly learnt.

It was really insightful, coming from knowing almost nothing about statistics or experimental design, it was easy to understand while not feeling shallow. Just the right amount of information density.

Increase the default pacing. Recommending 4 weeks to install software is too generous.

The course is helpful, and material is well receivable. But not a fan to robot voice.

Experimental Design is very great. Other contents are just fundamental for beginners.
