    Hunter Hillis United States of America Great but some of the mathematical values need to be better explained. The lessons sometimes assume that you know what "q" and other values stand for even though they are not clearly defined. 2016-04-26 17:04:48

  • Babafemi Okunowo
    Babafemi Okunowo Liberia The course was quite insightful though I possess a Bachelor of Science in Statistics and Master of Science in Statistics. I was able to revise so many topics. It is noteworthy that there had been less than a handful of concepts I might not have fully grabbed the concept in school; Lets say I crammed to pass less than 5% of my courses. The videos, pictorials and illustrations were very helpful in better understanding of the topics. 2015-10-06 15:10:29

  • Agnes Dely
    Agnes Dely Hungary After fulfilling the first part of Module I Pros: Information is clean, understandable good explanation with examples visual and graphical (helps understanding) making and saving notes (though first I thought, Save is a default process) Cons: a little old-fashioned style and sets of data there are two sets of 'Previous/Next' buttons and only one set means to the course that you fulfilled the lesson. At the end of the test there should be a feedback giving you your wrong/good answer rate. (+comparing the other users' mean and median results) During the first test, the income of movies weren't given, I had to guess from the chart. The notes should be reorganized (drag-and-drop, open-close tab...) 2015-08-27 11:08:11
