This gives a great foundation for Data Analytics. The instructors do skim over everything and I would have liked more detail but most of what I wanted to find out more about I was able to find online.

For learning the fundementals this course is great. I knew that SQL was a coding lanuage however I didnt know the first thing about it. The instructor for this course helped break things down to a level that a novice can understand easily.

My advice is to take notes during the video portions. Pause the videos to write things down wether in a separate google document or on paper in front of you. The information that is provided is extremly helpful and is reflected on the tests. you dont realize how much you are learning when you are going through this course. I feel extremly prepared for the next module in the program.

For impatient folks like me who would prefer to dive headfirst into the practical aspects of analytics, I would say take your time with this first course in the program; you will find it completely worthwhile!

The course layout reinforces what you might already know and conditions you to think like a professional regardless of your experience with data. To get the most out of the course, make sure to participate in the forum discussions and all optional reflections; you will be pleasantly surprised about what these can uncover, especially for data veterans who are likely to dismiss the exercises as too basic.

Many times, I opt for some course, which are taught in English. I don't find problem in understanding in English. but the problem arise for me , is to depict sometimes , what they have just said. Because sometimes, tutors voice accent is a little fuzzy. and for that i had to watch whole video watching at subtitles, and just because of this problem I start to loose interest in course. But , but , but , In this Google's Course, all tutor's voice was so clear , their way of teaching was too friendly, like they were not speaking formal words time to time , they explained everything very simply. And I loved this :)

Since I have been working in different industries and positions along my professional career, I found this a very easy course. But very interesting nonetheless. Two notes: 1) I have never worked with SQL and I haven't figured out in this course on whether the following courses will teach me SQL or if I have to learn it by myself. 2) One of the questions on the last wrap-up assignment seemed wrong to me. We had to say if =average (E:E) was the formula we had to use. I said it was false because it should have been =average(E2:E39). Maybe, you want to change this so people like me don't get it wrong. Thanks!

I was very impressed with the information delivery of the course and how the flow helped with making the understanding f the material easier and more interesting to learn . I would definitely say a job well done especially designing the course in a way to invoke enthusiasm for further learning. Bravo!

The only critique I found was , in my individual opinion , i would have wanted to have more opportunity to practice technical skill like excel and SQL, and would have loved to have more exercises to practice more . but in hindsight that could be due to oppurtunity to do so in the further courses.

This is a good course for "data" beginners like me. It layed a foundation for what's about to come. As a full time worker, I like going at my own speed and at times convenient for me. The facilitators keep you optimistic.

If I could change anything it would be to have numerouse practice worksheets for Excel and SQL. The worksheets would be like the ones in the quizzes. I would feel a lot more comfortable if I could practice. This is how I learned statistics, algebra and math problems - practice, practice, practice. However, my guess is there will be an opportunity to do this moving forward.

I'm very impressed with how thorough and well-thought out this course is! So far it is living up to all the hype that I've heard about the program. I'm relieved to see how in-depth the first course is, too.

It was very interesting to understand the first steps to Data Analytics. The course focuses on teaching you how to be and think analytically, not only by showing you everyday examples, but giving you tasks to help develop your analytical skills. I think it very good to introduce you to the analytics world. However, it's also very good to understand if this field is for you. Consider this course as the first step of this process, but mostly understand that this course is only introductory, I believe that in the next courses I will learn more about how the real deal is all about.

I hope my other courses also motivates me such as now and help me to complete my certification.
