The course has excellent elements, but it's annoying and hard to follow because it is a lot of stuff to read. Maybe if it has more videos instead of documents, other point: it is hard to follow theses hypothetical exercises. Probably in the future, we could have a platform like qwiklabs to support the course.

The course was detailed yes, but i feel like it could have been spread over 2 weeks maybe, the feedback system for the quizzes was very poor. I really struggled with one of them. But overall the course itself was interesting and informative

A lot of the instruction materials are outdated and do not match the current Google Workspace experience. Unfortunately the exams questions match the materials, not the way Google Workspace is currently implemented.

While this course does teach you some core concept of Google Cloud administration. It is quite out of date and a lot of the material has been changed within the Google Administrative portal.

This course needs to be updated so that it matches the current Google Admin Console. Without such updates novice users will find it difficult to complete the exercises and quizzes.

This course is outdated and some information do not fit properly with the current interface. You need to to search a lot and presume answers to answer some quiz questions.

Information appears to be outdated. Cannot tell however since not one of 97 "Moderators" appear to monitor discussion forum to answer anything.

A polite "I''m sorry to hear you are having trouble" is about the only responses I've seen and really , that is a pathetic dodge to actually assisting someone asking for help.

This course - thus far at least - is PAINFULLY and SHAMEFULLY poorly done and should be yanked from Coursera until there is a commitment by whatever buffoons are pretending to host it... to actually update, monitor and assist.

The Reporting Quiz and all other content needs to be updated to the current Google Admin interface. Many parts referred to in the course information were unlocatable due to the amount of changes in the Admin interface and Reports pages. Also the 14 day trial Google Admin provides limited to NO data to create reports with, so features mentioned in the curriculum are not available.

I never knew people at Google were such retards. 'Buy a domain.' 'Come on! it's easy.' 'Give us your financial details' 'Everyone has a spare bank account for such things' 'We'll let you cancel'

Fucking idiots, take my advice. Specifically warn people of this scummy behavior before they enroll into your course and see those awful introduction videos.

Course did not match the google admin console I had. The lesson also has you sign up for a service it states you'll get a free trial of... I was charted and unable to get a refund. Reading the forums support is of no help to others. Very disappointed in this course.

Non avendo la possibilità di inserire una modalità di pagamento mi trovo bloccata nel non poter avere accesso ai laboratori del corso. Ritengo sia necessario ai fini formativi che sia il corso stesso a fornire delle credenziali per esercitarsi
