"R Programming" forces you to dive in deep.\n\nThese skills serve as a strong basis for the rest of the data science specialization.\n\nMaterial is in depth, but presented clearly. Highly recommended!

Really interesting course. The interactive coding sessions with swirl are especially useful. Would be great, if you provided sample solutions for the programming assignments, in particular for week 4.

Assignments are difficult, very much coding experience required. Will recommend to subscribe courses on programminghub, codecademy and codecamp.

Way too much way too fast. Not sure how I would make it better, but I felt like I was learning from googling more than from the course.

Good presentation, but the jump between course materials and assignments is too great for people that are very new to R/programming.

R is a good to know tool, but so many of these process are automated now. You can do this quite easily in XLS or SPSS in most cases.

My review comments can be found in the surveymonkey response survey. To summarise: I would not recommend this course to others.

There seems logical jump from the lecture/exercise and quiz. Lots of time required to self-learn new things on other websites.

no detailed explanation, everything is left to Assignments
expected some more contents with programming examples in the Videos

very hard if you don't have any existing skills in R and the assignments are often not connected to the content of each course

A very steep learning course for beginners, I had to take other introductory R courses on DataCamp to go through this course.

The videos were helpful, but too fast. Not a lot of time is spent on any of the functions of F. Swirl helps but not a lot.

It's very difficult to crack weekly assignments. As examples taken while teaching the functions are not comprehensible.

Had potential, but exercises and quizzes do not align with content taught by professor. This is not a beginners course!

The pedology used here does not interest a learner. It seems as if the instructor is just reading through the slides.

The lecture is too general. Not a courser for beginners. But if your are not a beginner, you won't need this, so…

Not for the faint of heart. Extremely difficult and not for beginners. If U pass U will have learned alot...IF

Disjointed and not cohesive. Start with the basics and build from there. The assignments are a waste of time.

Theory and online lectures are fine, assignments are not (at all) consistent with the level in the lectures.

There is a huge gap between what they teach us and what the assignments ask. Had to get a lot of extra help.

Had some good information but did not expect the course to be intermediate level for the entirety of course.

It would be really helpful if the teacher gives more examples or graphs when he explains some concepts.

The lectures for this course do not adequately prepare students for the graded quizzes and assignments.

It's totally difficult for me. Some of the assignments are really hard to work out for me as a novice.

Presumes having a certain baseline level of programming skills, too technical for a beginner

It is very hard for me to absorb and the professor has very fast and not fluent speech...

The Course is great but the Tasks are too difficult and are not appropriately designed.
