I enjoyed this course so much. I learned a lot about how I can become a better learner. This course was very interesting and useful. I have some tools that I can use to optimize my learning potential.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this course, as well as all the courses in the Specialization. The instructors do an excellent job of breaking down each subject in an easy to understand logical progression.

Not much useful compare to previous courses. Besides, not really clear about the explanation causes very hard to do the assessment quiz.

It helps to take this *immediately* after completing Interm I & II! Then all the content will still be fresh in your mind.

Felt the explanations of the problems were not too clear and the information may not be useful for everyday use.

This was the hardest among the series but it was also the least detailed and explained worst among the series

It's ok, but not recommended for someone who uses excel on a everyday basis, you won't learn much more ;)

I loved the first three courses of this specialisation. However, I thought the advanced course was a bit rushed, the practice challenges were often missing and so were the practice test which is why I often struggled to get the assessments in the end right.

Not satisfied with week 5, also the exclusions of practice assignments in some of the weeks too was something that must be taken care of in my opinion.

An assignment didn't work on my system (Mac) even though I followed the said instructions.
