Very good class. The material is a great preparation for Statistics 101 or for just becoming literate in probability and statistics concepts. The instructor explains concepts very thoroughly, with love. Questions/answers are interspersed in the lectures, a very effective teaching strategy. Especially high school students would gain considerably by taking this course.

Exceptional teaching! Professor Thrun is the BEST teacher I've had in my life. Engaging, bright lectures, relevant homework assignments. The first (and so far the only one) MOOC where by the time of the assignments I remembered all material and didn't have to go back to the videos for references. I took the first offering of the course. There were few bugs in the grader, that are fixed now. They also added new lessons. I really recommend this course to learn the basic statistics.

This was a good introductory course. While it did not perhaps cover the full range of topics found in a college level stats intro course, it does show the student that introductory statistics does not require any high level math. The end result will be a very serviceable and usable knowledge of basic statistics.

This is the best class I've taken! It had just right amount of information, challenge, and engagement for me! Thank you Sebastian Thrun! Highly recommend it to anybody who wants/needs to take Statistics 101 or maybe just curious about probability of rain at your place or what door to choose at Let's Make a Deal :)
