Very Very Rigorous Course for a beginner on R language and because of its nature, after completing just one course, I feel like I have gained a lot of knowledge and also familiarity with R language.

A very good course to read and get the valuable content of R language. This is for the students who want to learn and practice the basic and some intermediate concepts of data manipulation.

I really liked the format of the Quiz for Week 4 - there is a dataset given and questions requiring you to do your own data manipulation/calculation to come to an answer (as opposed to the other weeks requiring swirl lessons, which weren't as fun/challenging). I would've liked to see more of the Week 4 type quizzes earlier. Overall, though, this is a good foundation course.

I found that the course was a helpful introduction to the R programming environment.

Some good functional R training but really missed the videos like in the Data Science specialization

Swirl should be accepting of other answers as well as different snippets of code will produce the same result.
At times this got frustrating and my reason of taking time to complete the course is because I'd leave things in between because of swirl issues.
This goes away and it is a 5-star as a beginner course; it is made beautifully to get us up to speed

Good to learn the possibilities in the R environment. In the end you learn most by applying it to your own projects (with a lot of help in available documentation or via internet sea).

The course is great, and very challenging. It is a little frustrating that the course requires 1 out of 2 programming assignments to be completed, but shows you as past due despite reaching that goal...
Getting this corrected and verified by Coursera has also been difficult.

The last quiz is super hard and makes you feel a bit unprepared. But overall I learned a lot from this course

Could have been better. Expected some interaction/videos from the mentors.

Very informative, however could be more complete. Some functions aren't introduced and the swirl package didn't accept other solutions path that would likewise lead to the same result. I believe also that some update would not harm. However, this course is really informative and, in my opinion, one of the best available. I really enjoy this course. Nice job and thank you very for sharing this knowledge.

+: I reached my goal for the course and now I understand a bit about R. I succeeded to pass within much shorter time than anticipated course duration. The course certificate is posted to my Linkedin profile.
-: No human mentors on the course discussion forum - all questions answered by other students. Automatic tests in swirl are too restrictive and do not accept perfectly correct student solutions slightly different to those anticipated by the authors. Week 2 assignment is much different from the reading material. Nothing taught about charting in R.
Overall comment: I think it is good value for money.

Useful, but it is all text so the course is not very fun

I think that the explanation of the material should be adopted to people that are not programmers

English is not my native language so i had troubles with tasks, because it is sometimes
hard to understand what you have to do. My advice - rewrite final quiz and make it more easy for understanding.

Very good overall. I feel that the first weeks are too easy relative to the last week - more involved practice and exercises would have been good before getting to the final quiz.

I liked the swirl() package a lot, made me jump into writing codes into RStudio straight away. My only wish was to have some videos that would push me further

The material gets progressively tougher but I never felt totally overwhelmed. My only feedback is for the mentors to be more responsive in the forums - if we're posting it means we've already thrown everything at the question and still couldn't figure it out.

This is a good introduction to R but I do wonder if there could be a little more content, particularly in week 4.

It's a great course for those who are just starting to learn R, It provides enriching for data analysis, however as a constructive feedback, I feel there could be improvements around how the exercise are planned and the submission process for the exercises

Very good starting course, covers all the basics.
My 2 cents: I would prefer more tests like the last one than the swirl lessons, they're more challenging thus you learn more.
