Very good course, giving beginners an overview of various aspects of data analysis, as well as having data analysts share their experiences, which is a great way for learners to get to know the field.

If you have experience with data and data exploration. This will be a piece of cake or more precisely a walk over toward the course.

However, still recommended to earn a pace towards this learning

This course was very insightful and knowledgeable . I like the way it is structured and provide great insight on the information that was presented. The only take away was the intro to Qwiklabs Video. It needs to be a little more detail in informing the students it is just a how to on opening and closing the Qwiklabs and not the beginning or introduction to completing the labs. Beside that it was phenomenal and I cant wait to continue on to the other courses.

I have not had work for the last eight months, and every job I tried to apply was asking for some kind of experience. I heard about the program from one of my children and decided to give it a try. The instructor gives you a lot of information to watch and jot down that is very helpful. I am able to put the data analyst certificate on my resume. It took me seventeen days to complete, but then again I am an empty nester and with no job. I highly reccommend

oooof, it was a really great experience with the Coursera team. It was a really professional team and the whole program was a sponsor. In this regard, I cannot help but extend my sincere thanks to all the team responsible for this rich program, as well as all the sponsors of Google and the Coursera Foundation for this effort and the support it provides to all groups from different regions of the world.

Thank you very much, and I hope to be in the next lessons.

So far so good. A very good introductory course data analytics. I have a graduate degree from data analytics and I found a lot of things that either I forgot or learned just now. Anybody who has a zero understanding of data analytics can take this course, learn about what is expected from them as a data analyst (not analytics) in the future.

My main concern usually with this type of courses is the quality of videos. And THE QUALITY IS REALLY GOOD for this one!

A new world full of passion, taught me how to deal with problems, and most importantly, what is the right question, and where is the problem, my vision is totally different from things, it helps me using my mind to understand what is going on , and to understand more and more, and that saves me a lot of time, and it gives me a better insight, expecting more and more information that will help me become a successful data analyst through this great program .

Good foundation for understanding the basics of data. This course provides good strategy and mindset in order to deal with data appropriately and fairly. The videos aren't too long and there's a bit of reading but I appreciate the resources (free) they provide. Overall would recommend to anyone who wants to learn data analysis even if you don't have a background or experience in it. This is a great start, in my opinion, to understand and appreciate data.

This was a really helpful overview couse, it gave a lot more insight into the process of data analysis, and taking us behind the scenes and what critical thinking decisions were essential to work through that process. At times the quiz questions were a bit vague, and I think the lessons could've provided better insight into them, especially with the data visualization/charts. But I definitely would recommend the course. It was a great foundational intro.

I am SO excited that I took this course! I was so hesitant at first, I really wanted to learn more about data analytics but the thought of taking a class kind of freaked me out. After only a couple of lessons in the first course, I felt so comfortable and way more confident. Now that I have taken this course, I will keep taking other courses in Coursera. I am so thankful for this opportunity and strongly encourage anyone to take courses through Coursera!

This course is easy to follow. The video instructions and reading materials are compact yet insightful. Then the quiz with real life scenario also push me to think like the way data analyst think. This course also makes me more confident to follow up the next course.

Thank you coursera and google to provide me this course for free because of your financial ad. I really appreciate it because I really want to be the data analyst as soon as possible I could.

Great course for beginner in data analytics! The explanation is easy to understand, the trainers are encouraging, and I love how the Google team invited those who work in data analytics to share about their experiences being an analyst. The best part is you don't need to have a prior knowledge to data analytics to start this course. Highly recommend this course for anyone interested in data analytics and confuse on where to start. Here's your start line!

I was very excited to be starting the course, and became even more excited though the course with positive, encouraging instruction. The quizzes were great, in that I had to think as an analyst with the trained, structured processes to determine where I was and where I need to be for effective analyses.

I understand this is an introduction to the more specialized courses that will follow. Of course, Google creates a great course, and Coursera gives hope.

I had started the course as a beginner and a little unaware about what Data Analytics is and why every organization needs a Data Analyst. But after going through this Foundation course, I have understood everything about data and Data Analytics.

The way things are being explained and the whole course is structured in a way that anyone can understand it without prior knowledge.

Now moving on to the next course to learn the first phase of Data Analytics.

This is a great beginner style course when wanting to learn the near basics of what it's like to be a data analyst. Throughout this course, you are given readings and videos that may help any questions you have while also providing you assignments to help wrap your head around the content you are learning. There are also some segments that allow you to communicate with others who are also taking this course that may be in the same position you are in.

For a beginner it is an amazing amalgamation of general info about Data Analysis. Though at times it looked like it was trying to cover too wide a range of what could be in the field. The guidance was clear and well thought out and it's a great resource that points you in the direction you might want to go.

This is definitely a course where you can finish within the week (during the free trial) to really see if this is a direction you would like to go.

Love it so far, the instructors are great, articulated and even if it's an online course you still feel attached to it.

Career change isn't easy for anyone but the introduction to Data Analyst Course 1 makes it very interesting and good challenge you want to face and solve, which made you want to learn more about it. Despite some error in the quiz and tools, this course is worth it and totally recommend it. Best of luck to those who may want to enroll.

I found this course to be very helpful as someone new the concepts of data analytics. It breaks each topic down into easy to digest concepts which makes it easy to understand and follow along. I also like the fact that it provided additional resources to get more practice or more information about the topics covered. The format of alternating between video and reading material kept things interesting so you are not bored as you go through the course.

This course has been great in supplying me with a strong foundation for starting my data analysis journey! I had previously completed another certificate through a differenc organization and while great, it didn't supply enough hands on instruction or context. This does just that. Even with working with data and light analysis on a daily level, this course expanded my understasnding of how to use spreadsheets and introduced the use of SQL. I love it!

Have a nice day, my teacher. Thank you for this course. This is nice work, teacher! I have completed this course, which is like full gratification! Employers appreciate these kinds of classes and can appreciate what's needed. I have developed during my learning. There is an opportunity to feature this project in my portfolio and add details to illustrate my rational thinking and skills. My recently completed course would look great on my profile.

Something I noticed:

When looking into this certification I saw it would take "Approximately 6 months to complete Suggested pace of 10 hours/week" which would total "approximately" 260 hours.

However, if one looks at the approximate hours to complete as identified in each of the 8 courses that make up the certification and sums them you will find the total approx. hours for the certification is 168 hours which equates to 4 months (10 hrs / week).
