Great but the quiz questions needs attention
By Juan e R. on 29. April 2018 for Statistical Biases

Loved the Profesor on this series. Really calm and explain very well. My only dislike are the quiz questions. The explanations for the answer were all wrong or constantly repeating the same explanation for all the questions. NEEDS to be revised.

Excellent teaching and lucid material
