TOP REVIEWS FROM THE R PROGRAMMING ENVIRONMENT
The content of the course is very interesting and useful, for those who want to learn a tool that allows them to perform data analysis, just a small detail that is in one of the assignments
Very Very Rigorous Course for a beginner on R language and because of its nature, after completing just one course, I feel like I have gained a lot of knowledge and also familiarity with R language.
A thorough course that covers a lot of efficient data manipulation styles within the R environment. I learned a lot of neat tricks that help with quick analysis of large data frames.
Great course, and teaches the fundamentals. Google is your friend and websites like RFunction will supplement perfectly. Recommend the use of RStudio to work along course.
