- I found it to be a great course. It taught me the basics of R but much more. This course includes how to use and understand R and statistics, which I find great. Because what good would it be if you know the language but not what to do with it.HiddeVerified Learner
- This is a great way to learn the fundamentals of R. The step-by-step tutorials allow you to build familiarity with common commands and some much needed muscle memory so that you can reflexively recall and execute a command at a moment’s notice.Harsimran B.Verified Learner
