by Arthur partially completed this course, spending 3 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
A wonderful book for an introductory Data Science course. Very good examples and clear language to explain important concepts and ideas.

by Kuhnrl30 completed this course, spending 1 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.
This is a very gentle into to data science. The pace is slow and easy to follow with a short into to R. If you have never used R before, this could be the place to start. On the other hand, if you have used it before or have a basic understanding of statistics, then you probably won't learn anything new here.

Superb. A semi indepth view of data science,algorithmic models, and the program R. A superb course designed to cover at least 50 hours, or 2 months of content.
