This is the second course I have taken from Roger Peng and both were outstanding. I have a strong math background, but not much of a background in stats, but this course was very approachable for me.
Very good course! It provide me the foundation in learning how to plot and interpret data. This will definitely strengthen my "R programming" to generate publication type figure for my genomics data!

The course is useful with a lot of learning.
The second half needs more of improvement, I think the pace is quite fast compared to others.
par Piyush D•
Awesome course ! It reaches you the crux of exploration of data . Although the SVD section could have been more thorough and detailed.
par Marc T•
Great introduction! I am eagerly awaiting the opportunity to apply clustering and dimension reduction on real data in future courses.
par Andres U•
Really helpful. I really enjoyed getting familiar with plotting systems and also increasing my abilities dealing with data frames
par Tony W•
Very interesting and insightful course. I enjoyed it.
Assignment was okay, could have provided more challenge and depth though.
par Nils M•
Very good course. I liked the clustering examples. They were a little bit detached from the rest, but they were also great.
par Christopher L•
great intro to the plotting system. could be better with a dimension reduction assignment or quiz. this is very important!
par Luiz E B J•
I would rate 5 if the course wasn´t so focused on graphic analysis. But, even Like that it´s a very good experience.
par David B•
It was a lot of material in a short time frame, but I feel like I really have a good grasp of creating graphs in R.
par Olav N•
A very well organized course with video lessons that inspire to further exploration of the data analysis topic.
par Jean-Philippe M•
More practical exercises using ggplot2 and clustering would be beneficial. Maybe need to be a 8 weeks module.
par Saurabh M•
Quantitatively assignments were less with no assignment for Week 3, however, the swirl exercises were good
par Anang S A•
this course is more about creating chart for EDA, need more material for reading/interpreting the charts
par Ankush K•
Useful for learning how to make plots, but not too detailed. Further analysis would have been helpful.
par Marcela Q•
Really good if you do not have any background in the field. But even if you do it is a great review
par Joe D•
Some of the links in the lectures are out of date, the forums usually have an updated link though.
par Lindy W•
Interesting learning more about ggplot and base plotting system, as well as clustering techniques.
par SUDIPTO M•
Thjis one of the best courses gives a great idea about plotting and exploratory data analysis !
par kajal s•
Exploratory data analysis is a very important skill and it is a very good course to learn it.
par Eric J S•
Best of your courses yet. Doesn't suffer from difficulty spikes when you hit the projects.
par Gerardo M F G•
PCA and SVD are not included in any assignment, it will be great if they are in the future
par Huang-Hsiang C•
Plotting is very usefulIt would be great to have a step by step breakdown of PCA and SVD.
par Mark F•
SVD could be explained a little better i think. I am still not exactly sure how it works.
par Irmgard T•
great course...though I would have preferred less focus on cluster and k means analysis.
par Manuel M M•
It is a good course but in my opinion it is basically support with the R swirl() guide
