I took the course "Writing Functions in R" at DataCamp. It was pretty good and I was very satisfied with the contents. The teachers were both excelent.

But problems came when I tried to cancel my subscription. First I did it from the account settings and apparently was all right. End of story. But a few months later I unpleseantly found out that my subscription had been automatically reactivated!! I wrote an email to the DataCamp support team. They replied to me arguing that I had been to select the option "Forever" within the "Pause subscription" menu.

So, if you do not select “forever” in that hide option within the account settings–whose existence you could not know beforehand–, your account automatically reactivates. It is definitely a tricky ugly ruse to force the customer to pay. Unbelievable and unaccpetable. Very disappointing.

This one is fine but I would not recommend next courses. I've canceled my subscription. Difficulty level seems to be not too consistent and some of the exercises are "out of context" without little of explanation of practical uses. I would also appreciate more videos.

Course for absolute beginners. Nothing more, nothing less. Basic but valuable.

This course is supposed to stand as an introduction to the full R course, so there is nothing surprising about the fact that it is very easy. Great to start.

Great course to start with R in data science. I'm 5 courses in at this point and love the DataCamp model of using video and coding exercises together. For me, it is the best tool out there.

A great course to learn multiple forms of data as an initial step of R programming.

It only took 4 hours to go through all the course.
