After finishing MIT 6.00.1x on EdX (click here for my review of that class ) I jumped straight to MIT 6.00.2x: Introduction to Computational Thinking and Data Science. Overall, Im happy I took the class and learned a lot from it, but there are several things I think it could improve on. Please note that this course is fully accessible: you can get your codes for all the problem sets and exams graded for free; you only have to pay if you want to obtain a verified certificate after passing the course
