TOP REVIEWS FROM A CRASH COURSE IN DATA SCIENCE
The course was very informative and knowledge gained from Data science expertise is exceptional. I thank Johns Hopkins University for offering the course for Data science beginners.Thank you.
Great to do if, you want to dive into data science or machine learning. It is a must do, if you have no idea of the rationale behind statistics and data science as well as the need for it.
It is a very good course even if you are familiar with some aspects of data science work. If I have to make a suggestion, I would remark the importance of design skills during a data product,
I enjoyed this class very much. It was concise, precise, and digestible. Not to mention the instructors kept it lively though out the course. Thank you for such an informative course.
