It wasn't bad
By Zenya B. on 19. July 2021 for Statistics Part 1

Straight forward way of teaching however he has a monotone personality

By Michalis N. on 11. November 2020 for Summarizing Quantitative Variables

Its Pretty confusing. Ofc I am a person I ve never had any experience with statitics but during the lecture is so easy to lose pace. Lecture number 1 was easier to get because of the Age-Education as paradigm instead of soulless numbers.! In addition its really confusing when the examples are made with data from the previous slide, witch you dont see any more but you require it to proceed.

Length of the videos

Lecture are a bit too long... Probably better to separate it to more but shorter videos

Very thorough

I especially enjoyed the examples, they cleared up concepts far faster than brute memorisation could
