TOP REVIEWS FROM BASIC STATISTICS
Thank You, @University_of_Amsterdam for this wonderful course. I have really benefited a lot from this course. Thank you, Dr. Matthijs Rooduijn for making this course so lively and interesting!!
It was a perfect basic course before it went for a hypothesis testing. Though I greatly enjoyed the course, I was left slightly annoyed by lack of explanations of the results of final exam.
It is not possible to revise the course by reading transcripts only. One has to go through all the videos. Otherwise, it is a very good course and explained in a very simple and easy manner.
Excellent course on basic statistics. The instructors are good and have done much to make it simpler. However, I would have appreciated more worked out examples along with the transcripts.
