Excellent course! I already knew a lot about R - but this class helped me solidify what I already knew, taught me lots of new tricks, and now I have a certificate that says I know `something' about R!
Very challenging, but good course. I've been programming in R for over a year, but there were still some things for me to pick up in this class. Assignments were a challenge, but satisfying to tackle.

Not a great course as said by the community. Most of the assignments are not even related to what is taught by the teacher and the way the teacher teaches makes learning R quite boring and cumbersome.

every time i watched the videos i ended up falling asleep. not at all engaging and professor makes it difficult to learn and build upon basic concepts. my only saving grace was prior exposure to r.

This is not R for beginners.. I am sure many people trying to get into R have been discouraged. There is so much great things you can do in R without making it that complicated as it was done here.

The swirl exercises were helpful, but the video lectures and assignments were not. Therefore, I cannot recommed this course. There are better resources for learning R in general and R programming.

The assignments are highly dissociated from the course material. Also once the due date has passed sharing the best solution would help so as to give insights on what could have been done better.
von Jason C•
Lessons and assignments were not aligned, expected beginners to know advanced R topics in order to complete assignments. Good info and would be better if lessons and assignments aligned better.

It was very difficult to solve the projects . I think I should have more coding experience or analytical experience before attempting this course. The practical exercises should be more to do.

This course is not much good because of some topics are not clearly explained Like Loop Function and 4TH week also. Assignment was so much tough and not related to the topics that covered ..
von Alex S•
Massive gap between learning materials and assignments. Even with taking notes and going through additional swirl exercises you don't feel prepared for the assignments. Note: beginner in R.
von Nattaya P•
In the lecture, they didn't mentioned enough function to use in assignment. I just stared to my computer couple hour and didn't know what I should do. T^T Take many time to figure it out
von Matthew D•
Good luck! Without prior R background, you will struggle. The professors will be of little help. Post your problems to other internet forums, you're more likely to get help and faster.
von Yaroslava B•
Very heavy on math/programming terms that are not necessarily familiar to beginner level, making it impossible to follow the course logic and explanations. Please revise course.
von Leonardo M•
The level of assignments was very difficult, considering the material offered in the body of the course, the r programming task dont fit the learning curve of beginner students
von Boris S•
I do not like how the lecturer teaches. It is too theoretical, and from very simple concepts makes rocket science. It would be better to have more exmaple and less theory.
von Eric H•
Assignments do not correspond with video lessons.
Video lessons has a lot of teorical concepts that are not usefull at all.
There's a big opportunity to enhace this course.
von Brett W•
Good content, and lots of information, but the lectures are not well associated with the assignments, which makes the assignments frustrating and difficult to complete.
von Angela L•
Difficult to follow if you are new to any type of programming. This is not a beginner's course. Best to take this course after trying Swirl, Data Camp, or Code School.
von Christopher G•
Ultra simple lectures, ultra complicated assignments. I like the idea of complicated assignments, but please update lectures to show us more complicated examples.

My background is in software development, so I know a thing or two about writing code. I'm about halfway through the course, and I'm really struck by two things:
von Meredith C H•
The material and practice exercises were do-able, the programming assignments were way too complicated given the depth of the material that was covered.
von Norman H•
Very poor lecture support for the assignments. So much was not covered at all during the lectures that the assignments were extremely time consuming.
von Andries L•
The course content and the assignments are too far apart. I would have learned more if it was better aligned and there were some exercise in between.
von Victoria M•
This course is not at all beginner friendly, really hard to follow the assignments and the lectures if you do not have a programming or R background.
von Yash P•
The teaching and the assignment are not on the same levels. The assignmnet contains contains concepts which are not taught in it's respective course
von Yuze Y•
The videos do not adequately prepare the students of the programming assignments.
The instructor should provide more support regarding the homework.
