**completed** this course, spending **3 hours** a week on it and found the course difficulty to be **medium**.

Great course and instructors. They presented the material very well and clearly. You will know the basics of statics when done.

**partially completed** this course and found the course difficulty to be **medium**.

The course isn't really free. You must pay to access certain content. This is an unfortunate trend with Coursera, and I will jump ship as soon as I find a comparable free alternative.

is taking this course right now.

Instructor is nice and presents concepts in very easy way. Good if you need basic and intuitive understanding of statistics. BUT this is not a mathematical course what I was hoping it would be (it feels like it tries to stay as far from maths as possible)
