Others have said many criticisms of this course. Many of them are correct, but as is so often with learning, you get what out what you put into it. Is the class designed to turn you into a pro data scientist in 5 weeks. Absolutely not. Does it jump around in topics? Absolutely.
The reasons for this is the nature of data science itself. This course is teaching more the mentality and process of a data scientist as opposed to hard technical skills. Anyone can learn how to copy and paste commands into R. Not everyone will take the time to understand what it all means. This course is merely 1 in a series of three, and is meant as a high level overview.
In college did you hate your entry level courses because they were boring/the teachers accent/the homework was way too easy? Did you drop out of college? I think your answers to these questions will give you a better idea of what to expect.
I personally learned quite a bit that extended my statistics and data analysis background. What you do with this is up to you.
