For a free course it is really well developed. But there are some errors in the videos that are not negligible. Especially the grammatical errors. Anyhow, thank you for giving me the opportunity to learn.

The content of the course is really good, so is the teacher. The final exam and that it's rated by peers is not optimal tho. Feedback from an expert would be nice there, even if it takes a bit longer

Good layout, clear, good to access materials and videos. One peer reviews, I found one peer that clearly and blatantly copied the class material. There were no grading options to report this.

The course was appropriate for a learner with limited data analytics experience, The instructor was knowledge and delivered the information in a manner that allows the learner to follow.

This course was startling for someone without a coding background, however I realized at the end that I truly walked away with a better understanding of the course curriculum, like SQL.

Overall I liked it. I would like to see more SQL practice and maybe a built-in tool to write SQL that shows where errors can be shown along with suggestions on how to fix the errors.

Very interesting and quite in-depth (especially the SQL part) for an introductive course.

Mr. Torgerson has got excellent public speaking skills and the lessons never get boring.

I would rate it around 4.7. I really learned a lot. The only thing that I didn't like about this course was that there was lot of theory videos which sometimes got boring.

The teacher has a lot of knowledge but he could have made the course a little more interesting with more visual aids. However, the overall content is really helpful.

This introductory class can be intimidating if you go into this with absolutely no experience in analytics.

Completing it with a passing grade is amazing.

This was a fun course though at times the theories got a little bit tedious at times but with the real life examples the Instructor did a great Job!!

Pretty cool to review but backup materials like PPT are really poor. Also, they could give more SQL excercise since they give you a nice platform

Overall, engaging, informative and challenging. However, I'd like to see more in depth examples either in lecture videos or the lecture notes.

The fields of tables used in questions were not defined. For this sometimes it becomes very hard understand the tables or relational tables.

Excellent overview and introduction into the processes, systems, and skills needed to become a Business Data Analyst

The course should have had another module on analytics part which is missing since we only have one module on SQL.
