Good presentation and clarity of thoughts by the instructor. Well structured course with slides for future reference. Although I would have liked if we had more material on SQL queries. But overall a great course for beginners to have a good understanding of data analytics.

Great introductory class on the topic of data analytics for business. This class also includes hands-on work doing SQL queries with real data. Along with exercise for a simulated analysis scenario based in industry that we are familiar with or that we have interest about.

I feel this is one of the best introduction course in Business Analytics out there, particularly the data extraction part using SQL is very well explained and doesn't need you to be well versed with the concepts of SQL to understand what David teaches, greatly explained!!

Very nicely and calmly explained everything. I understood almost everything. if in module 3 if you go a little bit slowly it might be better or perhaps you could make it more practical. it was very tough for me as i am from a business background. But otherwise excellent.

I found the course very interesting and detailed, especially for the business area. I don't have much experience in the business area, so I had some difficulties in understanding some topics. The practical exercises helped me to understand the explanations better.

The course provides a well structured introduction to the world of Data Analysis. I enjoyed learning the ropes and had fun with SQL queries. The takeaway for me is the ability to make specific decisions in business by the virtue of data analysis.

good content, very well organized. Very nice to have the presentations with the bullet points in advance to follow the instructor videos.

Peer to peer review of final assignment is very good idea as you get to see other students work and ideas.

Prof. David Torgerson explained very well.

I studied this subject, data analytics for the first time without any background. For a person like me, some more examples (especially SQL)would have been of great help.

Great learning experience.

Excellent introduction. Concepts are very well explained, quizzes ask some challenging questions, and I am also now a much better surfer than I was before I started. Don't worry - complete the course and you'll understand the surfing part.

For a fresh man, this course is great enough that you could know full and basic knowledge about data analysis. And the most important is that it tell me not soley focus on analysis tools but the data environment.
