First of all I must say thanks to Dr James Abdey - I really enjoy this MOOC. He say many words bewaring of assumption in models, but dont tell how dangerous it coud be. Naive, first order models based on wrong assumptions cause catastrofic consequences. Everyone who lerning something about probability should know that! Cost analysis don't make a sense if you may go bust - no matter how low probability of this outcome. It is the same category as sleepeing on a railways or playing Russian roulette - you don't wont do it whatever the profit. Also, in About this Course section I found this: "black swans" - low-probability high-impact events" - but I dont found any mentions of Black Swan events in this MOOC. Nonetheless this it a crucial point for anyone who wanna deal with uncertainty in the real world. More about it you can read in Nassim Taleb books. Thanks again and good luck for everyone who wanna find the answer about "To P or not to P".

The contents of the course is so very intuitive to comprehend. not that it is an inherent trait of the subject matter, but it has been Dr. James Abdey who has made the teaching vivid and lively, filled with devised instances and examples which help students like myself to gain deeper insights into the related concepts. Moreover, the connections between the related concepts, statistical techniques and the real-world scenarios are presented more than successfully.
Though the course may have been designed as introductory and it might not be feasible to present the abstract part of the subject in greater detail given the duration, I would still like to suggest that more theoretical aspects of the subject be exposed if possible.
In general, I, as a newbie in probability and statistics, am very much benefited by the course. Thank you.

For an introductory course in Probability & Statistics, this course ticks all the boxes. It introduces to majority of the concepts, of course without going too much into details. But this course ignites the curiosity to learn more in various fields, such as probability distributions, descriptive statistics concepts, decision tree, Monte Carlo simulation, etc. And finally, a big thanks to Dr. James Abdey for his efforts in delivering this course. He must be popular among his students in University of London.

Very enjoyable course. Dr Abdey is an excellent lecturer, very engaging with humor to boot. Clearly very passionate about the subject. Especially liked that he tied course material to real world problems and related to current events (e.g. Brexit).
The written material made it possible to listen to the lectures more closely. Suggest learners do the reading prior to the lecturers. The assignments were very straightforward and useful to reinforce the lectures.

Dr. James Abdey has a great way of explaining new concepts, I found in most statistics courses lecturers assume that students know the basics, so I get lost quickly. But in this course, I could keep up as everything was explained clearly with supporting examples. I have to say in the first week I wasn't sure I am disliking probability and statistics any less. But by the second week, I started to see the light and enjoy the topics. Thank you Dr. Abdey.

It was an excellent course. I have learned a lot in this course. This course covers basic ideas in probability and statistics and also helps to make a decision after calculating risk. This also covers Monte Carlo and decision tree and hypothesis testing. The instructor was so engaging that it seems like listening to stories. I am thankful to the instructor, the team who made this course available and the University of London.

Through out the course, I felt connected with the concepts and real lives example given by Dr.James Abdey. Indeed it was a great learning session which clarified so many doubts of statistics and probability. I very much understood the concept of uncertainty and how with the help of subject, we can try to predict . Thank you Coursera for this amazing experience. Looking forward for new courses.

Dr James Abdey is not only a superb statistics instructor but a passionate story teller in the field of Statistics.
Professor, you just rekindled my interest to continue my exploration of this subject further. I would look forward to more courses done by you on this MOOC platform and elsewhere. It was lovely to be your online student through these 6 weeks.
Thank you so much once again!!

This was a really nice course, bringing in simple analogies from the real world of finance or legal to highlight points. I found this very interesting rather than a dull pure math perspective. It kept my interest. The lecturer was also very engaging and enthusiastic. I would happily do another course if it was offered in applied p or not p :-) Or deeper in the current topic.

This is a gentle and accurate introduction to descriptive and inferential statistics. AP Statistics students would be well served by working through the course prior to their AP Stats course. It will provide participants with the basics of working with statistics in real world settings, while allowing them to dabble in some numerical analysis of data. Excellent course!

The course is very well designed and the passion of Dr Abdey about the subject and teaching really inspiring. The class notes are also very handy. I must recommendation course to take before starting the journey in the world of statistics. Thank you Coursera and the University of London and obviously Dr Abdey for designing such a course with so much minute details.

One of the best online courses in the field of Probabilities for the beginners and the module leader relates mathematical concepts to real world examples which makes learners easy to to understand and the course very interesting. I STARTED THE COURSE A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO AND IT WAS ADDICTIVE TILL I COMPLETED IT. Thanks to Dr. James Abdey and Coursera!

This is a wonderful course for anyone trying understand and quantify the complexity of this world. No prior knowledge is required, study material is to-the-point and informative and awesome explanations have been provided in the video lectures. Dr. Abdey is a really great professor and you would absolutely not regret enrolling in this course!

I was a "blind guy" of probability & statistics, and when I retake the test of the fifth week, someone said to me: you cannot just like copy from the references, it's not even helps you learning a lot, and you should do it from your own. I wondered that this is like cheating and it's pretty correct. He is a teacher during the life. Thanks!

Very well presented course! This is a complicated subject and Dr. Abdey does a very good job of keeping it high level enough to not get completely bogged down in the math theory while at the same time not glossing over its importance. This has myriad applications in today's world and I'm quite happy I chose to take this course.

This is a really great, well-explained course for those who need a refresher or even have never taken probability courses before. Dr. Abdey is one of the best instructors I've experienced so far on Coursera. Although similar in nature, I took this one and "An Intuitive Introduction to Probability" another top-notch course.

Possibly one of the best courses I've taken in Coursera. I usually don't leave reviews but I wanted to commend Dr James Abdey. He is an excellent presenter and explains the concepts and theory of probability and statistics in a clear and simple way that most people could understand, giving examples along the way as well.

This course gives fundamental concepts about probability and statistics in a simple way. The professor explained the concepts using practical examples. The complex equations in the probability are avoided while explaining the concepts, that's a good thing for the beginners to get interested in the subject

Currently I’m working in getting a micro master of Data Science in the MIT and I decided to use others courses to reinforce my learning. I really liked this course because it teaches you the basics in a easy explanatory way. A good overview to check before getting deeper in a specific topic.

Great overview of the subject. Great Price. Great content. Great instructor. But the written content is a bit repetitive (It has very similar information to what was on the videos); I think more in deep explanations, o at least different examples to those in the videos would´ve been better.

I really enjoyed Dr James' lecture. Although it is distance learning but I feel connected and engaged to the lecturer. Dr James also gives a lot of real life examples to give us a better idea on the statistic problems. I will pursue further in other advanced courses in Statistics.

Dr. Abdey mingled great logical sense and humour into this introductory course. As a person who had feared any number-related course since teenage years, I found that this one helps people to take a small step at a time and gradually learn the thinking base for the start.
