I took this course without prior knowledge of statistics. This course will introduce you to concepts in statistics. The "bio" part of this course only appears in examples, so don't take this course in hope to extend your knowledge in the biology part.
The videos are quite good, the lecturer introduces the concepts using formal definitions, and I find it not as boring as it may sound. The lecturer frequently makes interesting asides and also warn the students on some subtle differences that may cause confusion. Sometimes the lecturer kinda assume that you've already seen some of the concepts he shows, so if you're new to this, sometimes you have to do some web search to really get what he taught. The quizzes and exams are not too challenging.
Overall, this course is a good one to take if you want to get to know concepts in statistics in a mathematical way, but maybe it is better if you've already familiar with statistics and want a refresher course.
