    So far I’am very satisfied with this course. I was looking for something like this for a while, the pace of learning is sufficiently manageable but demanding enough to make it interesting and that makes learning fun for me. Course is focused on getting started in the field of data analysis and authors are trying to introduce few concepts in depth rather than everything but in a simplified form. If you think style like this would suit you I highly recommend this course.
