Who is this class for: This course is for people interested in learning an alternative to the Frequentist approach that is typically taught in statistics classes. The course covers both concepts and basic computing, and so it is applicable both to people doing data analysis as well as people who read the analysis of others, such as decision makers. This course expects that learners have previous exposure to statistics at the introductory level or higher, and previous exposure to calculus. In both cases, the expectation is that concepts have been seen previously, possibly many years earlier, but that the details may have been forgotten.

Very good -- from fundamentals to basic analyses.

Great course, it has the right proportion of theory and practice. It's a great start for anyone who wants to dive into Bayesian Analysis.

Good course

This course is well prepared.

The videos are of high quality and the lessons are easy to follow.

I enjoyed the Honors content as well, that gives an extra challenge to those who want it.

Thanks!
