"Decent curriculum, slow platform"

The curriculum is reasonable and the exercise format is good. But the code running platform is rather slow. If you are trying to use the virtual machine on line, you at least will have a lot of ample time to get water breaks. Most exercises could be easily... Read More

"Sloppy"

No one should study with Dataquest thinking it will help land them a job or anything like that: I'm confused why it says 5 stars for "Job Support." There is literally *ZERO* job support and those reviews should be thrown out because there's no confusion... Read More

I'm reviewing today as a current student who's completed the Python lessons for Data Science, muddled through the Command Line lessons, and moved on to the SQL. The Command Line lessons are where Dataquest admittedly falls apart. I even spoke to their customer service and they're in complete agreement the whole content should be redone... It's utter garbage, yet super important to understand.

Next, moving into SQL, much of the sloppiness has persisted. They make so many careless errors that show they really just don't gave a ______.

That being said, it's cheap and a nice way to get an early intro to these topics. You just get what you pay for.
I think it's annoying switchup says it's the best around--if that's the case, I assume the other options are awful.

"Great content and classes"

I found Dataquest to be very complete. The lessons were far more challenging than other MOOCs that I've completed. The curriculum is well thought out and structured, the pace just about right for it to be engaging. Additionally, they only work with real-world... Read More

"Waste of time and money"

If you're learning something new, you obviously don't know what you don't know.
After finishing the DataQuest platform, I thought I would be ready to start a new job in a new industry. Wrong.

This site is ONLY useful if you are already an analyst or statistician... Read More

If you don't have a degree in a quantitative field, or industry experience in analytics, DO NOT waste your time with this platform. It will not teach you the skills you need to be successful. It barely even works as described.

"Very slow platform - not worth paying even though the content is fine"

I tried to use their platform to learn something when I received a free month on their 5th birthday. Even the content might be considered as a good start, it takes forever to run anything on their platform. Very basic script with few lines take around... Read More

It's more difficult than Datacamp and therefore might be more effective in learning, but, taking into account Datacamp's variety of courses, platform smoothness and price, I won't subscribe to Dataquest.

A good advice is to replay Datacamp's excercises on some other case study or dataset.

"Really interesting and captivating"

I have taken several online courses but I usually have the problem of getting bored halfway. Since I started using DataQuest, I find the classes really interesting because of the usage of real life data and experiences.

"Hot Start for beginners!"

In contrast to most of the available MOOCS, Dataquest gives the opportunity to the student while studying to implement the techniques learnt onto the real datasets it offers. Beyond that, it encourages the students to do their own projects, each time... Read More

I would say that studying Data Science without doing projects, is like defending without taking any shot opportunities. Here comes the Dataquest; it "passes" you the ball in a way that helps you "shooting" even if you are a beginner. In the course of time, the pass becomes an "assist" and you really find yourself capable to score...

"DataQuest is practical and good"

I had done prior study of 6 month bootcamp in person. DataQuest was a very good supplement to that. It helps me expand my knowledge in Statistics and Machine Learning, among other topics.
