TOP REVIEWS FROM PROBABILITY THEORY, STATISTICS AND EXPLORATORY DATA ANALYSIS
Very nice approach to such a vast topic , making it more understandable. Such type of interactive lectures are advisable for courses on Calculus and Algebra from the same University.
Ilya Schurov explains concepts very well, and this course is a great start to begin the journey into data science. Also, the inclusion of some programming is appreciated!
Excellent course. To the point with no fluff. The professor explained everything in just the right amount of detail and the inclusion of python is great too.
Overall great. The course content can have more depth, in the sense of practice difficulty and more advanced theories, including central limit theory, etc.
