This course gives the necessary foundation to Data Science using R. It is very comprehensive and easy to understand / follow. I recommend this course specially to someone who does not have any background in data science and would want to start their journey in learning this skill.

I like it very much. No waste, no bother of time. It's a refreshing time with great skills when I go from one section to the next section. (At the beginning, very few hints are unclear to me as I am a beginner or new to this course. Later, the challenges allowed me to read further references and exercises. So, it is good)
