Was a very nicely done and clear course to build or re-build foundation for most common statistical concepts and an intro to using R via R-Studio for your work with them on the basics.

The formulae did not work on my laptop and could not solve this problem and could not contact the instructors. The instructor way of illustration is simple and nice so I would prefer more videos than the too much readings in the last week .

Until 2016, I was building Financial and Accounting Models for MBA Programmes. That I was teaching as an MBA Dissertations Supervisor, and Senior University Business School Lecturer (Professor). I am now working Part Time for the NHS, and I am aiming to specialise as a Senior Data Scientist with the NHS. This is Specialisation, is one of several first class steps that one can take towards such an aim.

I was so apprehensive about starting this course because I associated R with programming (that I very much dislike) but it has been very fascinating and I've learned so many useful things like creating histograms and doing hypothesis testing in R! It's certainly not as scary/difficult as I thought, and I'm looking foward to the next few courses!

This course is well designed for beginners. Everyone who wanted to learn the basics of sampling, statistical analysis (mean, mode, proportion, p-value, degree of freedom and many more) must take this course. Especially if anyone wanted to learn R and do not have a background of statistics then this is the best course.

This was an excellent course! I have a MPH degree and I took this course as a refresher on statistical concepts but also to begin learning R. The professor was great and the examples really started to reinforce concepts within R. Overall, I found this course to be very informative and useful for my day to day work.

Good session, clear content, good flow, excellent assignments and practice sessions
Only in one place, tables of assignment for chi square test, total mistake was there. In one quiz, mean value of 11 and 14 samples were not accepted as correct. The reason behind this is not explained. As a whole, excellent course.

I wasn't confident of myself in using R. It always seemed to me that IT professional are better equipped to learn it. By confidence has increased to a great extent and I am happy to say that I will be completing this specialization by Imperial College London.
Thanks Coursera and Imperial College Team :)

If you want to really understand statistics for data analysis, this course is a great idea. The professor, Dr. Bottle actually did a great job on the contents of this course. I had a statistical background, and this course helps me to understand some concepts that I didn't understand before.

This introductory statistics course is far better than the similar one I took with Johns Hopkins University because there are fewer recorded lectures and more work involving reading. it is also broken down into smaller "chunks" and Alex Bottle is very engaging in his lectures.

Excellent course! I must say that I have genuinely learned a lot about medical research using statistical tools from this course. And there were many concepts of statistics that that weren't clear to me. This course helped me understand those concepts as well.

Great introduction to R and statistics related to public health research. I recommend doing the readings and practice problem as well. I was a bit confused in the beginning but I supplement this lesson with other introduction to R classes online

Really good course covering statistics. I've covered this topic before in other courses, and I was impressed at how the instruction and quizzes cover the material in a clear and nuanced way. This course is introductory but not basic.

Very good for an initial introduction to the topic. I think it is not a good stand alone course, it is ment to introduce to the next courses in the specialization.

Loved the instructor. Everything was rightly pointed out. And lastly for me he looks like Thomas Shelby from British series Peaky Blinders. Haha.
