Very Very Rigorous Course for a beginner on R language and because of its nature, after completing just one course, I feel like I have gained a lot of knowledge and also familiarity with R language.
A very good course to read and get the valuable content of R language. This is for the students who want to learn and practice the basic and some intermediate concepts of data manipulation.

Some good functional R training but really missed the videos like in the Data Science specialization
par Jenny T•
I think that the explanation of the material should be adopted to people that are not programmers
par Wen H•
A very nice introduction to the R programming environment. I learned a lot and it was fun to do!
par Piotr P•
It is a good introductory course but the description of assignments could be more elaborate.
par Scott W•
This was a quick an relevant intro to the getting data and conducting basic manipulations
par David B•
I found that the course was a helpful introduction to the R programming environment.
par Jonatan H•
Good content, a lot of work loaded in the quiz of the last week, beware of this.
par RIPUNJOY G•
Could have been better. Expected some interaction/videos from the mentors.
par Max K•
This is what they don't teach you at university. Very good course.
par MASROAF S S•
It's a tough course for the beginners in R programming language.
par Norman C•
Good lessons but wish there was more lectures by the professors.
par Zhao W•
Learned a lot through both lecture notes and swirl package.
par Jing L•
Useful, but it is all text so the course is not very fun
this course is a introductory level on the R usage!
par Alkia M•
Really enjoyed the way the course was presented.
par Kevin K•
Learn basics and some good data science tools.
par David R M H•
Great course to start learning tidyverse
par Johans A A•
Exccellent Course! I really enjoyed it!
par Moriya K•
just swirl causes tables sometimes
par Jorge L R Z•
A really good introduction to R.
par urvi k•
enjoyed the last assignment
par Harsha S•
Covers the basics well.
par Mayer A•
very good start

The contents of the Course are great and you can learn a lot of stuff regarding the R Programming Environment. Unfortunately, there has been errors in the evaluations that have been pointed out in the forum for more than two years now and the Instructors haven´t attended them. They claim that that´s the system of Johns Hopkins University, to make evaluations hard, however, when you refer in a test to the name of a variable that doesn’t exist is not making a test hard, is losing the time of your students and therefore adding unnecessary obstacles to their learning process. Also when comparing the material printed in Coursera and the book that the instructors suggested for the Course, there are basic errors like printing the wrong Graph. If you are really interested in advanced programming in R, take the course, however, BE AWARE THAT THERE ARE FLAWS AND READ THE FORUMS BEFORE ANSWERING THE EVALUATION, IF NOT YOU ARE GOING TO WASTE A LOT OF TIME IN USELESS ISSUES!!!!!!

The swirl assignments follow a progressive structure and that's great, I was able to complete most of it even though I am totally new to programming. But the readings are not as easily comprehensible. There could be also more videos with examples. For instance, taking a look at the syllabus I don't think I'm completely able to import data from the web without a considerable amount of effort. And there was no swirl assignment on this specific subject. I've considered the course ok for a first approach to the R environment, but could improve a lot in the issues I've mentioned. Best regards, Henrique
