TOP REVIEWS FROM MANAGING DATA ANALYSIS
Prof. Roger Peng does an outstanding job in teaching this course with a positive attitude and presents the subject matter in an easy to understand fashion. I very much enjoyed this course!
Good review of the data analysis process, though it loses momentum when it gets into the communication & presentation areas. On to the next course in the specialization!
Good overview of the process. Helped me in bridging data analysis processes with things that I already do as part of project management or business analytics/decision support projects.
A long course compared to others in the specialization, but a lot of great material. Very well presented, the instructors know how to present this material and make it easy to grasp and understand.
