I loved the course. The clear explanations, tough quizzes and cheerful attitude helped me invest and find joy in statistics. Now I want to learn more and more.

Great course, highly recommend for those interested in basic statistics! Thanks a lot to the great team of authors of the course!

This is a good course for the videos (some mistakes there, beware) and material provided, but it is just ok as the quality of the tests. Sometime just felt like a monkey typing again the same ops over and over. The R lab is sometimes really frustrating as questions are not clear enough. I feel a good table of Z and T scores for the most used confidence and significance levels would be a good addition to the course material.

through all the video, r-lab, and tests, I learnt a lot about basic statistics.
