Nano Degree Program - Difficulty Level

7 - Meteor


I would like to know more about the Udacity Nano Degree Program.  How challenging it is for someone who doesn't enjoy coding nor math!

Hi @asha_kanand 


I have completed the nano degree it doesn't require actual math skills and it requires no coding skills.


But you do need some strong logical understanding to get through.


On the difficulty scale it starts of on easy note but the end sections are pretty advanced. And does need some understanding and efforts to clear through.


And a pointer if you haven't actually taken/started the subscription yet. The lesson content is available for free in Udacity, search Alteryx in Udacity search it will get you the courses which is there in the nano degree. That way you can learn the concepts then start the nano degree so that you will be better prepared. Since it's a monthly subscription it's a good idea to finish as soon as possible. Once finished all the content of nano degree will get unlocked to free.


Hope this helps 🙂

I agree, no coding to speak of, but I did take a free udacity differential statistics course before I started. For me, I need to understand WHY I'm doing something so statistics was helpful. 

My advice would be to blow through the first (easy) half of the course as quickly as possible because it becomes very involved towards the last 1/3rd of the course. Good luck!
