Everything was perfect but some questions on the practice and graded quizzes were tricky. The answers conflicted from the point of view side so it might need a better explanation for the right answer.

Es una excelente guía para iniciar el proyecto indicando la forma de hacer preguntas para conocer los objetivos, expectativas, retos, participantes, tiempos de término de los proyectos, así como, para establecer la comunicación con los miembros del equipo de trabajo y con los clientes interesados (stakeholders).

this type of courses is pretty new to me because I'm not used to non-technical skills such as communication skills and because I can't really work with this skill unless I got a job somewhere. But in the learned new stuff, become better at excel and I learnt that I should not let the stakeholders to rush on me.

It's 4.5/5. But I have to choose five stars because a four stars rating is not fair.

The course over-covering the questions and behaviors that should be implemented in different situations. It might have been simpler.

Ximena is a great instructor. I want to thank her for her great efforts. I will really miss her.

Best analysts dig deep to unserstand what really matters before getting their hands dirty, asking and really listening is paramount, this course gives great tips and techniques to start any data analytics task on the right foot, but hopefully also this brings a mindset change to do this better. Great course!

I enjoyed this course very much. At times I thought to myself that I would never remember all of it for the Final Course Challenge. But, the way it is structured and the way the Google instructor, Ximena, presented the material was so positive and well done that I knew I could do it when the time came.

Another really enjoyable course, which was well presented and engaging. Only minor issue was some problems with some of the spreadsheets I downloaded having different date and time formats which didn't work with UK dates in Excel - however I found a fix on the internet so learn something else new!! :)

So sar, so good. A lot of it was kind of a review, so I played the videos at 2x speed instead of fast-tracking out of the module. But that's what's nice about this program, you can fast track through parts that you're familiar with or, if you're an absolute beginner, you can really take your time.

It also lets the learner delve into the depth of a thoughtful process regarding basic but crucial take off with the analytical problem at hand.

When I started the course I thought it was just amazing how the instructor clearly explains everything but when i reached the end I was completely mindblown. It went from being amazing to 100 times better, I loved the content from week 4 and this is probably some of the best learning i've ever done.

The course is informative to make you think in the way that you would need to think and communicate in the company this will help learners to take the right call to classify between words which generally are confusing to people this course helps to clarify the thoughts on those words more clearly.

Ximena did excellently well. I learned a lot from this course as well as the first. I was specially intrigued by the function analysis on Spreadsheet exercise. It's like I'm already a seasoned data analyst but there is a long way to go. The results so far exceed my widest expectations. Thank you.

Very important non-technical skills are taught in this course. These skills are very useful when dealing with a real project in real life. Most people focus too much on the data analytics tools, but the skills taught in this course are very crucial to ensure the success of data analysis projects.
