    You get what you put in. Excellent curriculum, dubious admissions process

    I was a member of the January-April 2016 cohort, and I have fond memories of the experience, difficult and stressful as it was. The instructors and TAs are overqualified and brilliant, and Christopher Makris gives the broadest and deepest lectures that time affords. Zeyu is a magician. I would call it comparable to a master's program in machine learning, if the student puts the necessary additional time for self learning and independent study. The bootcamp was one of the most informative, ...

    Weigh your needs: the students are amazing, the curriculum mediocre

    I have mixed feelings. The students are really the best part about the program. They have such an eclectic background that I learned a lot from them. The classes themselves are at best, overpriced. The materials and intruction is roughy on par with what you'd find in Coursera courses. I don't regret the program and I did learn a lot, but I question the value for the cost. That said, it probably depends on your needs. If you need time where you solely devote yourself with like-minded indivi...

    Part Time Data Science in R Data Analysis and Visualization

    This course reallly gave me the foundation for understand R and applying it to real world data. Studying programming syntax can be challenging and Vivian really encouraged me to complete the final presentation. I am so glad I did!! I now have the confidence to work in R and use in the workplace. Thank you NYC Data Science Academy!! See you again soon.

    Great Course and great instructor

    This is a very conprehensive course covering R data analysis and visualization techniques. I can't remeber everything I learned in this class, but whenever I encountered data project in my work and study, I always went back to check the slides, examples and libraries provided by this course. 

    Vivian is a very passionate instructor and an excellent data scientists. She offers many hands-on example in class, not just reading and showing slides. She is very serious about the course ...

    Reflecting on it, bit of a disappointing experience

    I have posted a review also in a different website - but also wanted to share my opinions on this website for others to consider.

    I took the Beginner R course, which was not that great reflecting back on it. In whatever class you take, the teachers make most of the difference, and in my case, we were not taught well. In the end, I cannot even remember if I have absorbed anything at all except for doing basic statistics in R. We were told that Vivian, the founder, would visit, but...

    Good introductory class - excellent class materials

    Learning to code requires a lot of work - this class gave me the push to invest the time necessary in a structured manner. I found the lecture notes and homework problem sets very useful. Compared to content found on MOOCs and general online searches, the class curriculum is a lot more practical and concrete. 

    Our instructor Liz is very helpful and accommodating. The classroom environment was open to questions/discussion, and Liz was very willing to take the extra step to help me...

    Great Experience!!

    The staff are friendly, and well prepared.
    This bootcamp helped me to consolidate and organize my knowledge. 
    I feel that they gave me exactly what I was looking for, before the bootcamp I was not so sure about my models, now I feel great doing what I do. This is priceless. 

    If you have any doubts about those guys, please don't. They are super honest people, for sure this is a trust worthy organisation.

    Thank you guys, if any of you from NYDSA read this.

    Transformative Bootcamp

    I attend the bootcamp because one of my friends' recommendation that the bootcamp is a great place to get hands on experience of data science. Actually this bootcamp is as good as I expected.

After the bootcamp, I feel like I am prepared to apply for data science job. 

    I will never forget the 3 month study ...
