covers good amount of material and exactly what is in the outline, presented with enough detail to follow. Good walk-through of the spreadsheets helps understanding, easy to follow along and practice.

Material was very well presented. Week 3 was challenging, but taking time to print out the slides, work through them rigorously proved very helpful. I found all sections very, very informative.

Good practical examples of the concepts. In general, seems to me that the courses of the specializations do not fit together well. At times, basic things mentioned elsewhere are repeated, some others are not explained sufficiently.

The excels presented in Week 3 and 4 were lacking in substance, they didn't really help provide any useful information in real world scenarios. One of the questions in the quiz actually asked for the mode from one of the videos, first of all the mode? That's quite a basic question but on top that you literally have to go back through the videos to find the correct answer. It was quite silly. The first 2 weeks in the course were good, which is why I'm giving it 3 stars. I expect more from Wharton.

quiz should be unlocked. Some concepts could be explained better.

Very difficult to understand the professors, and I would have wished for more demonstration on excel, rather than explanation through slides.

Some concepts were hard to follow.

This course had a mix of high and lows, professor Savins pieces felt more connected to real life examples to help illustrate the concepts whereas Professor Veeraraghavan felt more like a math class and very disconnected from real world examples.

Although great content, I found that the week three has been more theoretical with not enough detail. I still manage some key concepts, but I would have love to understand more how to use in practice the theory.

Could be more content, and quizzes are really stupid - it's just plugging in numbers!!!

I do not recommend this course or the specialization. I will cite below sentences from the course and you can be the judge yourself.
*** start of cited sentences ***
if we plug in the expected values … we get fifty thousand times ninety, plus nine hundred thousand times ten, plus one hundred thousand times six, plus one hundred fifty thousand times two …….
*** end of cited sentences ***
The professor was actually reading this calculation:
500,000*90 + 900,000*10 + 100,000*6 + 150,000*2
I sat through 3 courses to realize that I should have dropped it in course 1 week 1.

Basically i resume of economics concepts that can be taken for granted as a prerequisite of the course

Too basic for the subject matter. Didn't learn anything I didn't already know.

The distributions were not well explained, it could have been handled in a much better way!

The expllanation for Week 3 is very poor. The professor fails to go into details and leaves much to assumption. A better understanding of reading the statistical tables and more detailed explanation of the pdf and CDF functions are required.
