  • Great experience for a beginner
    The Data Analyst Nanodegree in Udacity is a very good preparation for my master program in Analytics at USF. I had little programming experience before doing the Nanodegree. It is easy to follow for beginners, and you can learn A LOT from it. However, it is not easy to go through every course and get the degree certificate. It took me about half a year, and I studied at least one hour almost every day (Maybe it is just my problemT_T). Anyway, as long as you stick with it, it worths your time.
    I am not sure this nanodegree will guarantee a good job, as I am still studying deeper in data analytics instead of looking for a job. But it is a good choice if you are a beginner.
  • Not worth the (new) price
    Two days ago I recommended this ND in my blog, and just when I'm about to enroll, they changed the price from $199/mo with 50% discount to $1200 for the whole program! That's insane! For only seemingly minor changes in program curriculum.

    This course is also heavily recommended by David Venturi, who in less than a year after completing this program now has become one of the instructor. Good for you David. But unlike you who are now reaping all the benefits by recommending the course while getting your $hare as affiliates AND being as the instructor at the same time, now your reader has to pay much much more. It's a shame. Udacity please revert to the old price.

    Data Analyst NanoDegree Program
    I've completed data analyst program and I was really satisfied about entire education. Even the most complex subjects are explained simple and understandable. Order of units were very well designed, examples of each subject were selected from up-to-date topics. EDA and Introduction to machine learning parts were my favorite units. Every project had given me more confident on each subject. As a last comment reviews were exremely detailed and helped me understanding the subjects nearly as well as learning from videos. Thanks to all Udacity team.

  • A Great Start to Launch Your Dream
    I have finished my term 1 in the data analyst nano degree, so far i have developed my skills way much better than when i started this course, all the content which was given in the lessons are well structured and the teaching is really a awesome part from them. Projects where really challenging and interesting, so i sit and work on them with full fun, like how a kid have fun playing in a park, i am a Data science and Machine Learning enthusiastic, and this nano degree was a great start for me, so that i was able to finish my term one with in 1 and Half Month, so i am eagerly waiting to start my Term 2 , to gain more knowledge and to face more challenging task.
  • Both breadth and depth
    I took 3 Nanodegrees, and I can safely say that I enjoyed the Data Analyst Nanodegree (DAND) the most. Udacity's DAND offers a very comprehensive track that is very project-oriented, with coverage on both breadth and depth: Python, scikit-learn, machine learning, R, exploratory data analysis, MongoDB, and visualization libraries like D3.js and dimple.js. The projects are extremely open-ended, and the datasets are both real and challenging. Comparing to other programs, the DAND is less academic, just as rigorous, and very applicable; you end up graduating with a very robust portfolio. Loved it.

    Terrific program - systematic, easy to follow along and enough time given
    I completed Term 1 and have already enrolled in Term 2 of the Data Analyst program. I also completed the Data Foundations nanodegree program a couple of months ago. I have become a big fan of the Udacity way of teaching (pedagogy)--short videos, short quizzes to test understanding of knowledge plus hands-on learning experience via projects. The mentors are helpful and the project feedback are helpful (the reviewers kind of finesse their honest feedback with a good does of attaboy and a good serving of encouragement).
