Recommendation distribution

Alright, so that's the rating. But are the sets generally recommended? The data we've collected shows that the majority of Education sets are considered up to personal taste:

Total: 85 / 262

Not all sets in our database are marked as recommended or not. We currently have 177 sets in Education that are considered unknown. They are excluded from these calculations.

A set is considered recommended when the majority of reviews recommend it. If you're interested in knowing when a review is considered a recommendation, I keep that reasoning updated in Brick Insights FAQ. I've also written an article detailing the recommendation distribution of all reviews.

Prices
