A lot of people here have found this course boring. I think it is slow paced so that anyone can easily understand the material. In my opinion, there are enough quizzes and exercises to keep our minds occupied and it's not boring!
The way things have been explained in this course, both according to visualization of variables and the use of real-world examples, has been excellent!
This course lays the foundation for another course on Udacity called `Intro to Inferential Statistics` and that course has been rated very high on Class Central which is why I think *this* course is important.
